Hi Paula...
F/06 - is refer at Motor tach Error code, control board not sensing motor. If error code appears in the high spin speed mode the door will be unlocked after three minutes.

- Check connections between washing machine motor and MCU (Motor Control Unit)
- Check wire connection on the MCU to the CCU (Central Control Unit) The CCU is on the top of the washer.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

    It's not really a serious problem if it was only fault with the wiring and connections. Necessarily have to call a technician who can diagnose it with the right tools.

Can anyone tell me what F06 error code means on the whirlpool 6th sense 10kg washer? and what to do about it as the screen is flashing but the door to the machine is locked. Thanks


F06 Drive motor tachometer error This error occurs when the main control unit fails to detect the motor speed from the tachometeric generator fitted to the motor either through an incorrect resistance or the tacho is not correctly fitted into place. The machine will try to detect the reading several times before aborting the program ans shutting down with this error being displayed.
When checking ensure that the drive belt and belt tension are okay as this can cause this error.
  • Check tacho resistance
  • check tacho placement
  • Check wiring for shorts
  • Check wiring harness connections between motor and main controller
  • Check drive belt for damage and tension

Flashes error code F06


Check the wire harness that goes to all your connectors on the Motor, MCU, and CCU. I have seen a loose wire connector do this F06 error.

If all checks ok, then its a faulty CCU that needs to be replaced. Here is the part.

I am greeting a flashing code of F06 as in goes into spin cycle and it stops running.


Hi,

The F06 code will indicate a drive motor tachometer error.This means the control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If the failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will unlock after 3 minutes.
The error code F06 is likely a loose connection in the harness between the motor and the (MCU) or between the (MCU) and the (CCU). It could also be the tachometer circuit in the motor or an intermittent internal component connection within the (MCU). Since the (CCU) has already been replaced, the failure is likely a loose harness connection or the (MCU). I recommend calling a service technician to check the connection.

Hope this helps.

You get to decide for yourself what your full name will be! If you want, you can keep Paula Nazareno Aquino, just as it is. Or you can become Paula Jonestone. Or Paula Nazareno Aquino Jonestone. I suspect most people in your situation keep the father's surname and drop the mother's, which would make you Paula Aquino Jonestone, but it's up to you. The system in the UK is much less prescriptive than it used to be.

Flashing code F06, currently will not do anything


The F06 error is a drive motor tachometer error. This means the motor is not running or if it is then the tachometer circuit in the motor has failed. This error will be a failure of the motor or the motor control. both expensive and the motor being being the more difficult one try unplugging if for no less than 5 minutes to flush all codes... to see if it wasnt an intermitent problem. hope this helps......

I have a kenmore elite 3 that flashes f06


"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. This could indicate a problem with the drive motor, motor control unit (MCU), interconnecting wiring, or the tachometer (part of the MCU). The following link explains:

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

I would begin by checking all the wiring and connector plugs between the MCU and drive motor. Vibration from the washer can cause the connectors to come loose. Also check them for any signs of corrosion that may be causing poor contact.

Measure the motor windings to see if they are still within specs. Bad motor windings could generate the error code as well.

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