F6E1=SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR: The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.Possible Causes/Procedure- Unplug washer or disconnect power.- Check that the power cord terminals are connected at the right position to the RFI filter (white-Neutral/ black-Line).- Check that the two ground switches are pressed correctly by the toe and rear panels.- Check that ground switches are fitted correctly, and are not broken and the green ground wires are connected correctly.- Make sure that both ground switches are not broken or scratched.- Make sure that all the ground harnesses (green wires) are connected correctly, and are not broken or with wires detached.- Make sure that all wire harness connections from the CCU (MI3 cavity), main Motor, and MCU are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.- Check for continuity from the MCU connector wires to CCU (MI3 cavity) connector.- If the continuity diagnosis failed, the Main Harness must be replaced.- Make sure that all the connectors are fully seated.- Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.- Plug in washer or reconnect power. Most times this is a bad motor control board, but you need to check everything to verify. All I ask is please rate my service before leaving now thanks!
