My front loader is psychotic. It had issues a couple of years ago and resolved itself. Then this past spring it straight up quit. Hubby wiggled some wires and it started working again. Yesterday, it started throwing a fit out of the blue.

 

I was running a very small load when it suddenly started throwing an F06 code. I'd hit the pause/cancel button only once as if I were adding an item, then restart the machine. It would continue for another five minutes or so and do it again and again and again until the wash cycle was complete. There are no grinding noises when the machine runs at normal speed. The wash basket did seem to bounce quite a bit when the soaked t-shirts tumbled from the side to the bottom.

 

I then put in a regular sized load and it ran for the first ten minutes of the 40 minute cycle, then began again with the F06 codes. The machine and I played the same game until it reached the final spin cycle and finished on its own. When it goes into high speed, there is a bit of clicking at the beginning but then smooths out.

 

Before I did a load of laundry today, I tugged on the wash basket. It pulls forward a bit. I'm not sure if there is supposed to be movement or not and that's the culprit. I proceeded to stuff the sucker full of beach towels today just to give it another test. Not a single error code.

 

So... any guess as to the cause? Has my machine become accustomed to large loads and doesn't like it when I throw in just a few items? Is the problem possibly a broken shock? Bad bearing? My machine is almost eight years old so I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before it complete dies.

Older duet F06 Error Codes
motor or tachometer error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after three minutes.
Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts,spacers and cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections between the drivemotor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drivemotor.
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
