Default Duet F06 error code after 25-40 minutes in cycle
Model Number: ghw9300pw4   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi All,

First off great forum. I am receiving an F6 error code on my Whirlpool Duet HE ghw9300pw4 washer after 25-40 minutes in the cycle. I have performed some loads successfully, some loads are failing. I've tried at medium and heavy spin. I'm going to test at a light spin later.

Notes:

1) Diagnostic cycle does not fail. Even after an immediate load failure.
2) Load size doesn't seem to affect the result.
3) Failures appear to occur randomly, sometimes during spin, sometimes before a spin cycle.
4) I have checked all wiring on the CCU, MCU and motor. Tested motor and getting 6ohms as per tech docs.
5) Basket spins freely by hand (barely any resistance) and I don't hear any grinding or whining.

My thoughts:

Later cycle leads me to believe that this is an overheating issue and either a failing motor, failing MCU, or bearing resistance causing higher current draw and shorting something. Since the diagnostic cycle passes every time (no load), my first thoughts are a bad MCU.

Test #1:

regular load, cold, medium spin
failed at 25 minutes, error 6.
unplugged for 20 seconds
rinse/spin -> completed successfully.

Test #2:

regular load, cold, medium spin
failed at 38 minutes, error 6.
pressed start, failed after 5 minutes, error 6.
switched to drain/spin, failed after 4 minutes. error 6.
unplugged for 20 seconds
drain/spin, failed after 8 minutes, error 6.
ran diagnostic cycle, passed.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Well I did a few more loads and the basket is no longer being activated. I pulled and replaced all the wires again and still nothing. The tub will fill, time remaining will flash and then it will beep and flash the F06 code.

MCU, motor, harness, ccu?? Any opinions of what I should order first? I'll scan the posts and see if there is anything else similar.

thanks,

Eric

FYI, I ordered a new MCU, replaced and have had roughly 10 cycles without error. I noticed that the board had larger capacitors on the original and that the version # on the new board was v11 and the original was v6. Looks like Whirlpool fixed whatever problem was causing these boards to fail IMO.

I got this code last year on my washer and repairman said it was probably computer board needing to be replaced. Upon checking it was fine, but he discovered that there were particles in the rubber section up front that indicated the lining of the drum was separating. The bolt that held the drum in place had completely sheared off. Was still under warranty and they replaced drum. Same thing has happened again, going to call Whirlpool in the morning. Think my warranty is expired. Washer never did sound quite right but it worked well for a year after replacing the drum.
