I am greeting a flashing code of F06 as in goes into spin cycle and it stops running.


Hi,

The F06 code will indicate a drive motor tachometer error.This means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If the failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will unlock after 3 minutes.
The error code F06 is likely a loose connection in the harness between the motor and the (MCU) or between the (MCU) and the (CCU). It could also be the tachometer circuit in the motor or an intermittent internal component connection within the (MCU). Since the (CCU) has already been replaced, the failure is likely a loose harness connection or the (MCU). I recommend calling a service technician to check the connection.

Hope this helps.

Whirpool awt 8085/2 it gives me f06 code. what does it means?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F06 in your whirlpool duet indicates that the control is unable to properly detect the motor speed and so the washer shuts down. This usually occurs during high speed spin and the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the wire harness connections between the Driver motor and the Motor control unit (MCU). If that is fine then check the connection between the MCU & central control unit (CCU), replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Often fails to execute spin cycle with error F06


THE F6 MEANS THE CONTROL IS NOT GETTING A READING FROM THE TACHOMETER ON THE MOTOR. CHECK THE CONNECTIONS FROM THE MOTOR TO THE MOTOR CONTROLLER,(THE CONTROL BOARD MOUNTED TO THE BASE).

F06 error


F06 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 three minutes.

1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers
and cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and
the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the
Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
