f6 code flashing on display

History

The wash cycle will not complete. Code f6 flashes on the display. What parts may be in jeapardy and need replacing?

Edited by: oldturkey03 ( ) , iRobot ( )

From the cause of the error both the fine gentlemen have suggested, I wonder is it possible that you put a load in it that was larger than the washer was designed to handle?

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.

This UNPUBLISHED guide may be of some assistance - shows the control board

The Whirlpool Duet appears to be the same/similar beast. THIS MANUAL may be helpful esp page 6-5

Potential Causes

• Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor ControlUnit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)

• Check the Drive Motor

• Check the MCU

• Check the Wire Harness

I replaced the MCU and the cycle starts with the tub starting to fill and then the F6 code appears and then the washer drains. Any suggestions?
