wfw9250ww F6 error
« on: January 28, 2013, 12:45:45 PM »

I have a customer that just called.  Has a wfw9250 washer with an F6 error.  I want to be prepared for this and cant find any info on that error code.  Any input is appreciated.

Maybe "SERIAL COMMUNICATION ERROR"?

What's all wrong with it?

Is it empty, full of water, etc...?

Could be, check connections and try to run diagnostics.

That's strange, I just downloaded it from this topic and opened it up just fine.

You on a computer or mobile device?

Anyone else able to open it ok or having trouble with the .pdf?

Well turned out to have multiple issues. The main problem was the loose inner tub. It also had the f5e2 door lock error and the f601 error.  Customer decided to spend money on a new one.

They said they got it 2 years ago from a scratch and dent place. Also did not know to use HE detergent and had been using regular stuff. She bought it for $400.

Oh and too make matters worse, it had the dryer stacked on top, it was upstairs, stuck in a custom made hole in the wall. Apparently they assembled it, hooked it up and used a dolly to roll the whole assembly in. I couldnt even reach the outlet to unplug it.
