SOURCE: Kenmore HE4t washer has an F06 code

"F06" is a motor speed error code. This means there is a problem with either the drive motor, motor control unit (MCU), or interconnecting wiring. The following link explains:

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

I would begin by attempting to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main computer for the washer. Sometimes these error codes can be erroneous. If you unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes, this will reset the CCU. Often, this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem.

If resetting the CCU doesn't work, verify all your connector plugs on the drive motor and MCU by unplugging and replugging each one (one at a time). Sometimes these connector plugs can vibrate loose.

If these preliminary steps don't work, follow the advice in the link provided. If you have any questions please let me know. I hope this helps you.

What does F06 mean?


F06 error code indicates a motor tachometer failure on most Kenmore Elite front load washers. There are many different models, so I would need the model number of your washer to be sure.

This type of problem could be caused by loose wiring connections between the motor and the motor control board. It could also be caused by loose wiring connections between the motor control board and the main machine control board. Other problems that could cause this fault code include:
A failed drive motor.
A defective motor control board.
A failed main machine control board.

Hope thie helps (remember to rate and comment this answer)

F07 occurs at end of first rinse cycle


F07 - Motor Control Unit (MCU) Error - Disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wire harness connections between drive motor and Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU). Reconnect power and plug unit in.
Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor, and check drive motor for powered rotations. Replace failed component.

Note: If this failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.

WILL HE4T RUN WITH KICK PANEL AND BACK PANEL OFF?


The washer will run without the panels in place. As a technician it is common practice to troubleshoot with the bottom panel and/or back panel removed in order to see if certain components are working. The "F06" error is a motor speed problem. With this fault, the washer will shut down if the motor speed is not detected, or reach optimum rpms. The fault is usually caused by a failure of the Motor Control Unit (MCU) or Drive Motor.

HE4T F06 ERROR


Wow. Sounds like you've had your hands full with this one. Well, since you've already gone the route of replacing the CCU and MCU, more than likely you have a wiring harness problem and/or drive motor issue (as you have already explained). The following link explains the "F06" error and how to troublehoot:

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

Review the information and double check to make sure you have overlooked anything. Unless, you have purchased defective replacement parts, I can only assume the motor and wiring. Unplug the washer and perform resistance checks on the motor windings. If you have a multimeter handy, this would be on the RX1 scale. The pin locations are mentioned in the link provided. Each motor winding should read 6 ohms or less. On another note, the vibration problem you mention, was definitely caused by the shocks not being mounted properly. You may consider replacing them, since you said you're still experiencing vibration issues.

If you are still confused by anything, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
