Hi.

F06 is telling you that the sensor that detects the motor speed is returning an incorrect value.

Here the full troubleshooting:

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.

Potential Causes
? Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor ControlUnit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
? Check the Drive Motor
? Check the MCU
? Check the Wire Harness

In simple words the technician must check if motor is working by Ohming it or energizing it. If motor is good he must test the Tachometer, which is located on the motor shaft. The sensor is part of the motor assembly and it is tested checking its wiring harness and the harness between washer's control module. A direct test on the sensor is done by the washer when F06 is returned.

The wiring harness connector on motor is as in pic below. Tech checks continuity in wires 4 and 5 going to CCU:

The repair must be done by a technician.

Since the repair is quite complex, I suggest disconnecting power for five minutes (trip circuit breaker) and running a new cycle. If problem comes back, call the number listed on the user manual to contact a qualified technician.

Regards.

Ginko.

I have an f6 code and the machine will not operate once it comes up


The F6 error code means that the computer on the control didnt detect that the motor reached a high speed on the spin cycle, sometimes it thinks the washer didnt spin fast enough because of a loose wire connection either on the motor or the control boards (motor &machine control) if you find that the washer did actually spin at high speed (clothes dont come out sopping wet at the end of cycle) the wire connections or the motor control board will be the potential causes of the F6 error code. Try unplugging the machine for five minutes to let the computer reset then try again. Next check the control panel wires. f6 code flashing on display Kenmore Elite HE3 Washing Machine

Cannot get a spin cycle, washer gets stuck before spin cycle get F6 error code


You will need to access the drain pump first by removing the bottom panel. Open clean-out on pump and check for obstructions. If none, the pump may have a broken rotor, these are the problems related to the F6 code.

"f6" error code means that there a miss communication between mcu(motor speed control board) and ccu(central control unit). i recommend you to ohm out the motor. most likely its your motor speed control located at the bottom left of the washer good luck. replace the motor speed control board and you should be all set to go.
