Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
1. First instead of just unplugging the machine, try switching the circuit breaker for that socket off for about 10minutes and see if that resolves the issue. Also pull out the detergent dispenser and reach all the way in to the
back there is a small plastic flapper valve. Move it from side to side
with your finger this will rest code.
2. If that does not work, check the drain pump..it could be clogged. All you do is take off the bottom front panel (there are 3 screws). After the panel is off, there is a turn knob right in front in the middle. Simply unscrew it and remove any thing in the "catch". Screw back (re-attach) the knob and you are good to go.
3. In the manual, the instruction for an F06 code (electrical problem) is :
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
After that, you might try unplugging then plugging it in again.
The F06 code is generally an electrical fault. · Check wiring to motor and replace drive motor if necessary. Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.
If all checks ok, then its likely a faulty CCU, check your owners manual, some are covered under warranty for up to 5 yrs.
