This answer is actually from Sears Parts Direct: The F06 error code
indicates a drive motor tachometer error. This error is virtually impossible to accurately diagnose. The most suspect components that would cause this failure code are the drive motor, the motor control unit (control board) or the wire harness. In some instances, this could be caused by severely overloading the washer so that it cannot spin properly. Make sure that the washer is not overloaded. Another problem that could cause the error code to be displayed intermittently would be a loose wire harness connection that is affected by vibration when the washer is spinning at high speed. Good lucks, hope it helps
REplace your MCU. The MCU is the Drive Motor Control board and is located in the rear of
the washer adjacent to the Drive Motor on the left-hand side (facing
from the rear with the back panel removed).The wiring harness can also cause the error, but it is not as common a problem. Go onto kenmore.com and find your right washing machine and replace the part yourself. First try and take the wiring harness off and then reconnect it and see if the error code goes away if it doesnt then replace the part. Please Rate. Thank you
The first step to troublehsooting should be to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that it takes to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears following a computer reset, follow the advice given in the link I provided.
If you have questions, or require additional assistanc, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
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.
