BIG THANK YOU to Colonel Rick, the solution worked perfectly... I did find one improvement... before you pull the filter out... if you have a vacuum which works as a wet vac (I have a Rainbo knock-off called a Hyla) pull all the water out of the tub (you may have to empty your vac one or more times) and then have it ready (basin empty, machine running, hose in one hand) when you pull the filter... minimum muss and fuss, and a very happy crew when the machine is "up and running" in no time, sans ridiculous service call charge and multi-day wait!!!

HI. this is a door lock error code.
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.
• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure
Replace failed component.((Which will be a failed door lock assembly in this case))

Testimonial: "Thank you for your response. This is a year long battle. Now, we're up and running again!"
"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This is an indication that there is a problem with the Drive Motor, Tachometer, Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) and/or interconnecting wiring between the all these components. The following link explains:
I would begin by checking all the connector plugs between the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor to ensure none of them are loose or have corroded contacts.
Read through the link and follow the steps provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps.
NOTE: The majority of the time this failure is attributed to a bad tachometer which is located on the MCU. If defective, the MCU must be replaced. There is a technical data sheet that comes with the washer. It is located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws located under bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. Included are all the diagnostics and troubleshooting advice for your washer, including diagrams to show test points. HINT: For better access to the screws you can prop the two front feet of the washer up using a 2 x 4.

Thanks for using FixYa. Error “dlf” means a door latch failure. This means that you’ll need to replace the door latch assembly however before doing that you can leave the washer unplugged for 30minutes so that it resets itself. In the meantime when it’s unplugged just inspect the door latch wiring to ensure all the connector plugs are intact and not loose or broken. You can access the door latch wiring harness by removing the top panel of the washer. To remove the top panel just remove the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, and then lift off. Locate the door latch assembly behind the front panel on the right hand side. Trace all the connectors from the door latch to the Central Control Unit (CCU) and make sure they are properly seated at both ends. If after doing this still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you have to get the door latch replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
