If this is a Whirlpool Duet, "F06" is a motor speed error. The problem is usually caused by a failure of the Motor Control Unit (MCU), or Drive Motor. The following link explains how to troubleshoot:

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

We have an ASKO W6451 flashing F6. appears to jump from 1 minute to go to 20 minutes to go then flashes F6. would it be something electical?


Asko F6 error is apparently a motor fault. The motor could be jammed, open circuit , burnt out?? It may just be a broken wire or connection come off. Check "Google" and type in Asko F6 error. There is a lot of info about it.

What does and F6 error code mean on a whirlpool duette front loading washing machine mean and how do I fix it?


Error code F06 means 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
1/ Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor ControlUnit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
2/ Check the Drive Motor
3/ Check the MCU
4/ Check the Wire Harness
Replace failed component or contact an authorized repair agent.
