Good morning!

Hello, and thank you for using Pearl.com. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So to start, E1-F6 means that your main central control board (CCU) and the motor control board (MCU) are not communicating with one another properly. The motor control board is located under the tub mounted to the floor of the washer. The CCU is mounted under the top panel of the washer and is the part with about 100 wires going into it. You'll want to remove the top panel and the lower front panel to check the wire connections and make sure they are all secure. If everything looks good, then you need to replace the MCU because it's not sensing the proper signal to the CCU. The MCU is specific to your model number and the model number is ***** on a sticker just inside the door way. The cost of the part is usually about $200-250.
