Unfortunately F06 is a bad error. F06 means that your motor control board (MCU) is not communicating with the motor properly or the central control unit (CCU). 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 have to replace the MCU which is about $300 typically depending on the exact model number located just inside the door way. The model will start with 110 . XXXXXXXXX.
