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.

Shane

Error Code 01 F06


Your fault is mentioned here.

An F06 fault code in a Whirlpool Duet washer (the Kenmore HE3/4t's are also made by Whirlpool) usually means a motor-related problem. It usually pops up when the drum won't rotate at all or only very sluggishly. Here's the excerpt from the Whirlpool Duet Service Manual on this:

Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its either a faulty MCU, or faulty drive motor.

Indesit 123 FAULT F06


I had this error and engineer said the meaning of the codes on the web are wrong as they don't like to disclose their real code meanings for pure protectionism reasons. F06 on IWD7145 is a burnt out door interlock IDC error. He replaced the part number C00085194 (replacement door interlock) and microritardator part number 085194 and it works ok now.

Kenmore Elite is giving me F06 error. Any


"F06" is a Motor Speed Error. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have questions. In most cases this problem is attributed to a tachometer failure on the Motor Control Unit (MCU). If the this is the case, the MCU must be replaced.

If you require additional assistance, let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

F06 error


Unplugging it sometimes corrects the problem. However, it must be unplugged for SEVERAL minutes.then start it again i think it ll set it ok becuase sometimes it all sets it right.
or
Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its like a faulty CCU, check your owners manual, some are covered under warranty for up to 5 yrs.

now check the CCU,MCU and Motor any one of these must be faulty that will only lead to F06 error.

Panasonic VCR has F06 code


You appear to have a K Mech model. F06 is the code for the mechanism locking after unload. The cause being something to do with the loading motor or the way the carriage is aligned.
