F-18 means the pump is blocked. When the machine fails, there may be an "electrical" smell as the motor has laboured. This is normal. Clean on bottom right corner and you should be fine..


Open flap at the bottom righthand flap.

Keep big bucket handy for water.

Remove clear plastic attached to black tube (slowly)
This will empty water from washing machine.
Once empty - no water coming out from washing machine then open big opener next to tube and remove any objects inside( coins, buttons and such)

Put back clear plastic filler firmly inside as before.
Close big opener next to tube.
close flap

Turn machine programe knob to DRAIN.
Start washing machine.

Should do the trick....

Good luck

Take off electricity wire, Open the filter from the front( maybee need to remove a rectangular cover.) turn the filter anti-clockwise. take out the hairneedle or coin.

Turn the electricity back on. choose for example pumping program or centrifugeprogram. After that the machine should work.

Whirlpool frontload duet washer F 6 problem


hello cjkcp
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your washer (now 4 yrs old) occasionally stops mid cycle flashing F 6 code. Is this something we can fix or do I have to call a repair man?

F/06 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

I believe this needs a hands on tech to daignose this. Unless you feel you undrstand the problem your self?

Thank you for using our service for advice.
