Thanks Bryan ... will check for your reply while I am getting ready for work.

Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down.

If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

Potential Causes

  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the


Motor Control unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit


  • Check the Drive Motor


  • Check the MCU


  • Check the Wire Harness

Can you remove the top of the machine ? what I mean is the dryer isn't on top correct ? if so you need to check the wiring harness between the MCU (motor control unit)Control Board W10374126 Main Product View and the CCU (central control unit) the CCU is number 4 on this diagram. the MCU is located on the floor of the unit. number 37 on this diagram.unplug the cables and plug them back in. see if that corrects the bad connection.

the dryer is not on top of the washer ... it is beside it... the tachometer error is F06 ... what about the Eo1 code?

I was pulling up info on that. it give me a few more minutes, it may be related to the same issue. that error I believe is only supposed to come up when you run diagnostics. still researching that .

OK ...Thanks

Okay that error is all one error code, in other words its the same error. check all the connections like I said and then plug the washer back in and try it. if it doesn't run one of the two boards is bad. usually the CCU however is the one that fails. let me know when you have tried that.
