Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
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.
? 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.
