    Ref: Front load RCA Whilpool GHW9150PW4 error code F06


    I found a couple of socks and junk between the door seal and tub. I think there might be a plastic or metal piece somewhere towards the back of the moving tub. I hear a noise toward the rear of tub? Could I take off the drain hose and reach inside or let it run and maybe it would fall our?

    How do i accept solution?

  • Ellendale6 Aug 03, 2008

    My friend and I took the drain hose and vent hose off and found a nail lodged in the tub. We were able to remove it with long nose plyers. The machine is running like new. By the way it is 2 years old.

    Thanks for your help

Please try a hard reset by leaving the unit plugged off from the wall power for one night

the error code may vanish

also this seems to be like a motor starter problem

    error code F06 means


    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

  • dewan nafees ahmed Aug 02, 2008

    You need to check connection from drive motor to motor control (circuit
    board located by motor). Then check connection from motor control to
    main control up top. Make sure wires have not come out of their
    harness. After that you need to do diagnostic. Set selector to
    drain&spin. Set option to no spin. press extra rinse 4 times. Make
    sure you do this right after you turn power on. Diagnostic should
    start. This will tell you if communication is ok with all components.

    if it does not come out then you can move further.

The F06 is a drive motor tachometer failure which means the motor control is not able to see the motor is running. This can be a difficult problem to pin down, but there are some things you can do yourself if you like. Check the connections between the motor control and motor. Also check connections on the central control are all tight. Push on all of the connections and see if there is any improvement. The images below will help with access on some Maytag front load washers.
