The following link explains the "F06" error:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

It is known as a Motor Speed error. More commonly the motor control unit (MCU) fails. However, you will need to check the drive motor, belt, and Central Control Unit (CCU) to be sure. I hope this helps you.

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

Hoover elite 700 washing machine won't spin


There are several reasons that a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.

INSTRUCTION BELOW
# A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.
# 2 If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.
# 3 Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.
# 4 Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.
# 5 If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall

Regards.

Washing machine won't drain and spin after rinse


It sounds like you have a blocked pump. I have read that the pump is connected directly to the motor. You will need some tools at hand before you try to disconnect the pump from the motor.
Make sure that you disconnect the machine from the power supply. Tilt the machine back to access the pump from the bottom of the machine. It will be connected to the motor with clips. Have some towels ready to mop up the water.
I hope this works for you.

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.

Kenmore elite front loader F6 code


"F6" is a Motor Speed error code. This would be why you're experiencing problems with the drum spinning. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r714929-f06_error_whirlpool_duet_kenmore_elite

I would begin first by checking all connectors between the drive motor and motor control unit (MCU) to make sure they are still plugged in and don't show any signs of corrosion. I have experienced problems where the connector plugs came loose due to vibration.

You may also attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU) to see if this error code could be erroneous. The CCU is the main computer for the washer. To reset, simply unplug the washer for 30 minutes. If the error code returns following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this information helps you.
