Duet Sport stopped in mid cycle

About 18 months old, stopped in mid cycle, washed but has not rinsed (downy is still in dispenser). Flashing code of F- with time left in cycle. What does that mean? The door is locked, won't unlock, can't cancel. I tried unplugging and plugging back in, nothing. Help!

    my machine started the f 06 thing two days before the warrranty ended, so the repairman ordered a new board.  took a month to get the part and a week to schedule installation.  still f o6.  tech support agreed that it needed a new motor.  new motor installed and still f 06.  1200. for the washing machine.  250. in labor costs and now no one has any ideas.  customer service says that the repairman can come out and play with the thing and call tech support.  yesterday, customer service orffered a 10 percent discount on same unit replacement.  sign me up!

Read the Manuel and see if they offer an over ride, first.
Since you already tried rebooting the machine, I won't suggest that!
If no go you will need service at this time!

Where do you put fabric softner

Manually: If you're adding fabric conditioner by hand, be sure not to add it during the wash cycle. The washcycle will clean away much of the softener, so add it during the rinse cycle. Also, try to avoid direct contact with fabrics to avoid stains; instead, pour Downy into the deeper pockets of water.

Whirlpool duet washer error code f-02

Error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Remove lower front panel. You will see a circular door. Be prepared for a lot of water and junk, maybe keep some old towels ready. Open, clean out, check pump which comes right behind it - see that blades rotate freely; refit carefully. You are done, for the next six months or so, depending on usage.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

I Agree, I don't think it is any other board, I believe the CCU (central control unit) has gone bad as it keeps on stopping mid cycle. If it was the Motor Control Board (MCU) then the washer motor should have been causing problems (which isn't the case) so replacement of CCU will be a great option. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Whirlpool frontload duet washer F 6 problem

hello cjkcp
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your washer (now 4 yrs old) occasionally stops mid cycle flashing F 6 code. Is this something we can fix or do I have to call a repair man?

F/06 Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.
  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive Motor
  • Check the MCU
  • Check the Wire Harness

I believe this needs a hands on tech to daignose this. Unless you feel you undrstand the problem your self?

Thank you for using our service for advice.

Whirlpool duet sport washer

F01 finally fixed after 2 repairmen and 2 circuit boards replaced/5 weeks of loaundromat! ! HINT have your repair technician check the boards. Be sure to have them especially check which wires are connected to which areas of the board. It could be that the wires are connected to the wrong place on the board. Good luck!
