Question about Whirlpool AWM8143 Front Load Washer
My front washer makes sometimes a lound noise as if I would be washing boots in it. The code F06 shows on the display. Do you know what this code mean ? Thanks for any clues...
I had this same problem, an intermittent F06 fault. The F06 code means a tachometer fault. After some fault-finding, I did manage to fix it. If this error code happens to you and you know a bit about electronics, try taking apart the timer and looking for dry joints between the main board and the perpendicularly-mounted microprocessor board. Over time vibration can cause the soldered joints between the two boards to crack and fail intermittently. 10 minutes to disassemble plus 2 minutes with a soldering iron could save you a $400 repair bill.
The service manual is available for download on the web if you google hard enough. If you have a CRO available, the tacho waveform should be a nicely-formed sine wave with a frequency proportional to the RPM.
