Default Error Code F6
Model Number: GHW9150PW4   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I KEEP GETTING ERROR CODE F6, I WENT THRU THE PAPER WORK AND CHECKED EVERYTHING WHIRLPOOL TOLD ME TO CHECK. SHOULD REPLACE THE MOTOR OR IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE I SHOULD LOOK FOR. THANKS I CHECKED A FEW MORE THINGS OUT AND IT WILL NOT SPIN OUT BUT IT WILL SPIN THRU THE WASH CYCLE AND WILL PUMP THE WATER OUT BUT IT WILL NOT SPIN WHEN IT IS TIME FOR THE SPIN CYCLE, THE MOTOR IS NOT MAKING ANY KIND OF NOISE WHAT SO EVER ON THE WASH CYCLE WHEN THE DRUM IS SPINNING. I AM STILL UP IN THE AIR ON WHAT PART TO GO TO FIRST AND CHANGE.

Take off the bottom front panel and you should find some tech notes and troubleshooting routines.

Run through them and see if you can determine the problem or narrow it down. Your problem is probably in the motor/motor control unit/wiring/ccu areas, but those are pretty big areas, and you do not want to replace parts without a high probability you are solving the problem.

Also, clean out the water drain and pump, and see if that helps.

Here is the service manual.

Good luck, let us know what you find out.

Default Motor Control Unit

I CHANGED THE MOTOR CONTROL UNIT AND THE WIRE HARNESS TO THE MOTOR AND SO FAR SO GOOD. I WANT TO SEE IT RUN A FEW MORE LOADS OF WASH BEFORE I SAY THE PROBLEM IS FIXED. THANKS FOR THE REPLY AND I HOPE THIS HELPS OUT FOR OTHERS. THANKS

That should do it. That error message is not all that specific but what you did was the right thing and I am glad it is working.

Thanks for updating us. That will help us and others.
