Customer Question

I have a whirlpool dryer 6th sense 10 kg and I got f04 error

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The F04 error indicates a fault within the heating circuit. An open thermostat, open heating element or faulty heater relays on the power board can all cause that fault.
Let's try to reset the machine before looking at replacing parts.
Within 10 seconds....
Turn the selector to the 6 o'clock position
Push the start button 3 times.
Turn the selector 1 click clockwise.
Push start 3 times
Turn the machine off and see if the machine heats and the error goes away when a new cycle is started. If it does, all is well. If the F04 error returns, then you will need to test the thermostats and the heater. Let me know what happens.

It is working after resetting but after that f06 error occurred.

That can be a motor error or a fault with the main electronic PCB. If it errors again after resetting, the main electronic will likely need to be replaced.
