Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So to start, F6-E1 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 in the front right corner mounted to the right side wall. You'll want to remove the top panel to check the wire connections and make sure they are all secure. If everything looks good, then you need to replace the MCU. Below is a link to the MCU for your model number.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 month ago.

Alright good luck. The only possible reset is to unplug the washer for 5 minutes. There is no button to reset this issue I'm sorry to say.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
