OK

E01 F06 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 just need to replace the MCU.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.

If I want to replace the MCU, how much would it cost and where would I get it? Also, what's entailed in installing it?

The part is about $250 typically and you can get it at Searspartsdirect.com with a full model number. As for accessing the part, just pull the washer forward and remove all the screws coming in from the back of the sheet metal panel. Remove the back sheet metal panel and you can reach under the tub to replace the MCU mounted to the floor below the tub.
