We get an F6 message sometimes when the spin cycle is supposed to come on? any ideas


F6 = 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.

What does the code f17 mean? I've had it happen twice, according to the mannual, I cancel the wash cycle and select drain and spin. Why does this happen? I have a less than a year old front loader Kenmore...


F7

DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR

If the control is unable to properly detect motor speed, the machine shuts down.
If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door unlocks after 3 Minutes.

Possible Causes/Procedure

1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and the power cord are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check drive motor tachometer resistance. It should be approx. 115 ohms.
4. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.

Generally if everything checks good, you'll want to replace the MCU because it's not reading the motor correctly.

Whirlpool awm 8143 doesn't stop at the end of the spin cycle. Instead it clicks for a while when the timer displays 1 minute then displays F07 then goes back to wash cycle. While googling I found something...


F07 - Motor Control Unit (MCU) Error - Disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wire harness connections between drive motor and Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU). Reconnect power and plug unit in.
Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor, and check drive motor for powered rotations. Replace failed component.

Note: If this failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.

3 year old Whirlpool Duet - F07 error showing up 98% of the time on high spin; 70% of time on medium & low spin. Checked conections between MCU & CCU. Should I buy a new MCU or a new washer?


No do the following:
  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the MCU
  • Check the Drive Motor
  • Check the Wire Harness
If the wiring is definitely OK and the drive motor is OK then the MCU is most likely to be the culprit.

My duet front loading washer has a code 06. When I turn off and unplugged for 1 min. then tried to start it again, it started filling with water then stopped and started beeping the code again. I did this...


This is a 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.

Make sure the wash load is not too heavy and do not move the washer when it is powered on.

If the error persists then the normal process is to check the following:
  1. 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).
  2. Check the Drive Motor.
  3. Check the MCU
  4. Check the Wire Harness

The F07 indicates a Motor Control Unit (MCU) Error.

  2. Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  3. Check the MCU
  4. Check the Drive Motor
  5. Check the Wire Harness
  6. Reconnect power and plug unit in.
  7. Check the MCU operation by looking for movement of the drive motor, and check drive motor for fully powered rotation.
  8. Replace failed component. Note: If this failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.

Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle.
Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re select cycle and select HOLD TO START.

Hi, I have a whirlpool 6th sense washer and no manual, could you please tell me what f-06 means.. its just going straight to spin


Hi. This is a 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.

The potential Causes are below:

• Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the MotorControlUnit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check the Drive Motor
• Check the MCU
• Check the Wire Harness

***((The most likely culprit will be a failed wiring harness, but the uncommon problem will be a failed MCU))
