Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE4t Front Load Washer
EVERYTHING WAS FINE FOR 2 YEARS AND 7 DAYS AS THE STORY GOES. THEN A BALANCE PROBLEM EMERGED WHEN I DID A SUPER LOAD OF TOWELS CAUSING THE DRUM TO SHAKE SO HARD IT FORCED THE DOOR OPEN BREAKING THE DOOR LOCK MECHANISM. I REPLACED THE DOOR LOCK MECHANISM AND ALL WAS WELL ALTHOUGH I NOTICED BALANCE ISSUES WITH LARGE LOADS BUT COULD COMPLETE LIGHT LOADS WITHOUT INTERUPTION. THEN I GOT THE DREADED F11. I PLAYED IT SAFE AND REPLACED BOTH THE CCU AND MCU IN THAT ORDER. AFTER CHANGING THE CCU THERE WAS NO CHANGE IN F11 STATUS. AFTER CHANGING THE MCU THE F11 CLEARED. WHILE I WAS DOWN THERE, I NOTICED THE FRONT 2 SHOCK ABSORBERS HAD BECOME UNATTACHED AT THE TOP SO I RE-INSERTED THEM. (WISH I HAD CHECKED THAT WHEN THIS WHOLE THING STARTED). AFTER THE MCU WAS SWITCHED THE F11 CLEARED BUT UPON THE FIRST TEST CYCLE THE F06 NOW APPEARED. SEEMS THAT AFTER WATER STARTS TO FILL FOR A FEW SECONDS THE MOTOR ENGAGES TO TURN THE DRUM FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN STOPS. IT DOES THIS 3 TIMES AND THEN DISPLAYS F06. I AM NOT VERY HANDY IN THE ELECTRICAL DEPARTMENT AND DONT KNOW HOW TO TEST THE MOTOR'S AMPS/OHMS BUT CAN DO OTHER PRELIMINARY CHECKS.
Ck all the connectors to both boards and motor you may have inadverantly left 1 loose or knocked one off during previous repair
