Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
The machine will not spin, unsure what the code means and if there is anything we can do before calling a repairman
I have the whirlpool Duet 9150 with the same issue. I removed, reseated and reconnected every connector at least 4 times with the same random result of F06 to the point where it no longer finished the load. I then removed the motor control board again and sprayed it down with electronic cleaner along with all connections by disconnecting them , spraying them down and then reconnect and connected a few times to ensure good contact. I then tried again and the F -06 code came back. I then ordered the board for $ 150 online . When the new board arrived 4 days later, my wife tried the washer one more time and it worked. I have performed over 2 dozen loads . The board was never replaced. It appeared that spraying the board and connectors worked.

An explanation of your error code can be found at the following link:
In a nut shell, usually one of the motor windings fails, causing the Drive Motor to not rotate at the correct rpm, or not at all. Or, the Motor Control Unit fails. Both are simple repairs and can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. If you wish to attempt this repair, let me know and I can give you the steps required to complete it.
These parts can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading on the next page. The MCU will be listed as item number 1 (part #8181693). The Drive Motor is listed as item number 16 (part #8182793). You can also try repairclinic.com, pcappliancerepair.com, and partsstore.com for comparative pricing. If you require further assistance, please let me know.

There are two problems with the F06 code ---- Control Unit may be bad or the motor try cleaning the connections first that posted above -- the motor costs around 186.00 and the control board costs around 206.00 at partspro.com------- a service tech will clean board first and charge for a motor -- be careful

I had this error and after taking the back panel off and checking all the connections I looked all over, looking for the obvious. The obvious is exactly what I found. One if the stabilizing arms was separated. After lifting and sliding the two half's together I plugged the machine in and ran it through a cycle. FIXED! There are 4 stabilizer arms under the drum that keep the drum balanced. Putting too many clothes in the drum can cause it to go off balance while spinning causing the drum to bounce around like crazy. Hope this helps. 15 minutes and zero $ spent on repairs.
