The error is an indication a motor speed problem. You will need to check the following:

- Check the wiring harness. Verify all connections between the Drive Motor, Motor Control Unit (MCU), and Central Control Unit (CCU).

NOTE: The MCU is a circuit board located in the vicinity of the Drive Motor on the bottom rear of the washer. To access the MCU, you will need to remove the back panel of the washer.

NOTE: The CCU is the main computer for the washer and is located behind the wash tub. You will need to remove the top panel to access the CCU. This is accomplished by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top in place. Once the screws are removed, the top panel will slide back, then lift off.

- Check the Drive Motor. Perform a continuity check of the Drive Motor windings. Remove the connector plug and check across pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and 1 to 3. All readings should be approximately 6 ohms. HINT: You can also take this reading by removing connector 2 from the MCU and measuring across pins 1, 2 and 3. If the readings are good, this will also prove the wiring and connector good.

- Check the MCU. The connectors are numbered 1 to 3 (L to R). That is, with the MCU installed, connector 1 is on the bottom, followed by 2 in the middle, and 3 on top.

Connector 1 - is the serial communications link between the MCU and CCU and has three wires. At the opposite end, this will be the 2nd connector from the rear on the left-hand side of the CCU.
Connector 2 - is the link between the MCU and the Drive Motor. Pins 1, 2, and 3 on this connector are the Drive Motor windings. Pins 4 and 5 are for the tachometer.
Connector 3 - is the primary power connector. Pins 1 to 2 should read 120VAC with the door in the locked position. Pin 3 is ground. At the opposite end, this is the 4th connector from the right on the front of the CCU.

NOTE: All the connector pins are numbered R to L.

If your continuity readings are normal for the Drive Motor and you have verified all connectors, replace the MCU.

If any of the Drive Motor windings indicate readings higher that 6 ohms, replace the Drive Motor.

Getting an "F6" error on


HELLO.

An F6 error code typically indicates a controlpanel problem. Disconnect power and wait several minutes before plugging itback in. If the F6 error code comes back within a minute of restoring power,the control switch pulse return line is not connected properly. This willgenerally require professional repair.

Thanks.

Hi janishanson,

The F6 fault code description is an EEPROM checksum error. The EEPROM checksum error occurs when the values differ. In this case, you need to replace the mainboard or control board, also called as ERC.

Hope it helps.

Turbo chef oven F6 ec code


Hello. There is a temperature sensor built into the control board, and the temp in that area, is getting too hot. On the back of the unit, right top, there is a cooling fan that comes on at a certain temperature, if the intake is clogged, you will get this error, clean the intake. Inside the unit may be so dirty, it may require cleaning as well. The fan itself could be bad, and does not run, then it will need replacement.
Hope that helps, and thank you.
