Hi,

A few weeks back I received a F06 error on my Whrilpool Duet Washer that is just over 2 years old.

I called one repair man who said the plastic covering the drum was chewed up because something must have gotton stuck in there and chewed it up.  He figured something was stuck in between the drum and the out plastic cover.  This was causing the washer to not be able to start it's cycle or the drum to spin  He was not too enthused to work on it and said to call Sears.

I tore into the washer but didn't find anything stuck between the drum and the outer plastic cover.  When I had the washer tore down the drum still would not spin when I tried to spin with my hand.  I figured rear bearings.  Tonight I took the belt off the back and the drum spins freely.   The motor will not spin at all and seems to be froze up.  Is the motor bad?  Or could the motor be locked out for some reason?

Thanks for the help.

Mike

 

It it is the motor I can replace for about $150.

Sounds like a bad Motor.

Try running it with the Belt removed.

See if the Motor runs.

Thanks for the help.

The motor is froze up like a lake in the Michigan Winter,  :(which is fast approaching.  I guess I can use the motor for a boat anchor in the spring.
