Does not complete the wash cycles. Has code of F6


The "F06" error code is indicating a Drive Motor Tachometer Error. The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the washer will shut down. If a failure occurs during high speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

Potential Causes:

Loose wire connections between the Drive Motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU). Drive Motor MCU Wire harness I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a F21 problem with a Kenmore washer, the F21 error means an excessive drain time was detected as you may or may not already know...also the reason the door won't unlock.


If you follow the link to my solution to this error designed specifically for "do-it-yourselfers" you should be fixed up in no time...including unlocking the door. (It's much quicker for me than pasting or retyping the complete solution several hundred times, that's how common this is)

I load the clothes into the washing machine, I turn it on select cycle and the door locks and will NOT unlock. The door will however unlock after the cycle is finished.


Not sure if you're unable to open the door AFTER you stop the cycle. That may be normal operation as a safety measure (won't open until after your cycle has completed). However, if your model DOES allow for opening the door during cycle operations then your electronic door lock may be defective.

My duet ht front loading whirlpool washer goes through a complete cycle then during the spin and drain ( the last cycle) it displays a f6 notice and will not complete the cycle, you cant get the wet...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F06 in your washer indicates that the control is unable to properly detect the motor speed and so the washer shuts down. This usually occurs during high speed spin and the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the wire harness connections between the Driver motor and the Motor control unit (MCU). If that is fine then check the connection between the MCU & central control unit (CCU), replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Door wont open f21 alarm


F21 indicates that the washer is having problems draining. Check the drain hose to see if it is kinked or if there is an obstruction in the hose.

SUD comes on every time excessive suds are detected. Not using the proper detergent will set this off faithfully. The machine will run a cycle to remove the excessive suds before completing the wash cycle.

You need to clean the drain filter by removing the 3 screws in the bottom of the front panel. Then you will see a white twist cap. Remove the filter and clean it out.

F21 is flashing


This means the water is not draining out like it should. I solved this problem initially on my washer (my drain pipe was clogged), but now (about 4 months later), I have a flashing F21 and 5d, because of a clog some- where. I can drain and rinse (after this cycle, the door will unlock), and the tub spins, but I can't complete a cycle. Lots of debris has come out with rinse water, but I still seem to have a clog somewhere. I can complete a wash load by manually switching the settings.

F21 error code - will not complete cycle


Check your drain pump. "F21" is a Long Drain error code, which commonly means you have something clogging the drain pump. The following link explains:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

If cleaning the pump does not correct the problem, a new drain pump may be required. If the pump impeller or motor is damaged and the pump does not pump at the proper volume, the error code will still occur. This is because the error is caused if the drain cycle takes longer than 8 minutes. If the pump is not moving the correct volume of water, the error code will still occur.

If a replacement pump is needed you can purchase them at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing. So shop all of them for the best deal. Use your model number (located around the door opening) for your search criteria.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
