Tip & How-To about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
Had F06 error usually when the washer went into spin cycle. Followed all tips on different sights. No real concrete solutions to my problem. Sense my problem was intermittent I ruled out the motor. I started looking at my MCU and found my heat sink was really hot to the touch. I slipped MCU out of wash machine still electrically connected and put my window fan on MCU while operating and washer worked perfectly. I the went down to Radio Shack and picked up a 115v CPU fan ($20) and installed on my heat sink. Just splice fan wires to MCU power wires (wire connector w/ the 2 largest pink wires). Mount fan creatively to heat sink (tywraps, hot glue gun, however) . I saved $150 and the heartache down the road. I think this a common problem for that MCU. Hope this helped.
