Whirlpool Washing Machine WWCR 9230 S fault code F06

Hi all,

Trying to assess whether my washing machine's fault is one that is worth of repair or if I should just get a new one.

It had started making some loud clunking noises during the wash programme, and then when a load was in, it suddenly lit up the 'Service' light and displayed fault code F06.

Now, when i try to turn the drum manually it feels like it's obstructed on an anti-clockwise turn.

My Googling makes me think it's either to do with the belt, or the motor.

Any thoughts very welcome and appreciated.

@higgledy on your Whirlpool the F06 is as follows:

Drive motor tachometer error

This error occurs when the main control unit fails to detect the motor speed from the tachometeric generator fitted to the motor either through an incorrect resistance or the tacho is not correctly fitted into place. The machine will try to detect the reading several times before aborting the program ans shutting down with this error being displayed.

When checking ensure that the drive belt and belt tension are okay as this can cause this error.

Check tacho resistance

check tacho placement

Check wiring for shorts

Check wiring harness connections between motor and main controller

Check drive belt for damage and tension

Since you had a noise just prior to this, it stands to reason that you have had some sort of mechanical failure and will have to take a look at it. See if you can get to the motor etc. Check the motor pulley and see if it is still on the tub. Post some good images with your question so we can see what you see. Use this guide Agregar imágenes a una pregunta existente for that. Also, let us know the exact model number for your washer.
