Not sure what you're seeing attached to the motor but it ain't the MCU.  The MCU lives beneath the top panel, RHS.  The motor lives on the base plate of the machine.  

 

There is no F6E2 error code for this machine.  Either you have an undocumented error code or you're reporting it wrong.  

 

And, BTW, your correct model number is NFW7300WW01

Hate to say your wrong but the newer whirlpools that still use a belt have started using a "inverter motor" like GE topload, the mcu is right on the motor and part of the motor.  Had to look twice the first time i saw one.

Definitely NOT the design I had pictured, haven't seen this yet either, by the diagram though if you have 120v into the motor/module ass'y and motor won't run - would seem to be defective motor/module ass'y.  Also has very strange looking W/L switch :

Did not want to edit my previous post............After trying to decipher what gregaguilar is describing, what was the original complaint???......  Page two (2) of the tech sheet, did you go thru the items listed under "Won't Start Cycle"???? .........Will it run a 'Diagnostic Test' ????...........After swapping the motor , did you depress the ground switches????..............No F6E2 on the tech sheet provided by RegUS..  But of course you my have stumbled onto something unknown to man.. :wacko: .

Man all of you guys are numero uno for helping out,  but like papa-son said there is no F6E2 on this unit  I checked it out again and sho enouth PA PA SON is rite. Believe it or not after  all this I got me a cold BUD-Lite bru and was stirring at the ccu and wham found the culprit. somehow I took it for granteed that the clips on the ccu can only attach to only its own place but but no I think the P13 hole the one that has 3 blue wires going to the MCU ATTACHED TO THE MOTOR was inserted into the adjacent hole Man i switched it and wham it solved the problems.. F6E1 pap a son is rite. I had run the diagnostic cycle and at the spin time it would sit there and give me the 6 flashes and pauce and then the 2 flashes. Its 5am here in San Angelo tex I am a happy hombre.My customer will also be very happy. Thanks again to pa pa son and all of you guys for all the input  ADIOS HASTA LUEGO BUENOS TACOS HASTA LA VISTA
