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 in the front right corner and is the part with about 100 wires going into it. You'll want to remove the top panel and the entire back 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 so below is a link to the part.
