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.

What is error code F06


The "F06" fault code indicates a drive motor error. This means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down.

Error Code 01 F06


Your fault is mentioned here.

An F06 fault code in a Whirlpool Duet washer (the Kenmore HE3/4t's are also made by Whirlpool) usually means a motor-related problem. It usually pops up when the drum won't rotate at all or only very sluggishly. Here's the excerpt from the Whirlpool Duet Service Manual on this:

My duet does not wash it keeps coming a code F06, what could it be


F06 error code is Drive Tach Motor Error.

The cause of this is the motor control (MCU) not communicating with the control board. Try unplugging the unit for 30 seconds and if this does not solve the problem replace the MCU. This is located behind the panel under the door screwed to the floor of the unit near the motor.

Hope helps.

F06 code on my Duet model


first before replacing any parts,check the wire harness from the motor tachometer on the end of the motor and the e.c.u. electronic control unit,they get small amounts of corrosion and can't pass r.p.m. signals to the control board,you may need to remove and re insert themk to clean the contacts,then if this doesn't help,then replace the hall sensor/tachometer on the motor,and finally the e.c.u. in the very end
