i done the recamended tests CCU position MS2 is steady 125VAC
P1 and P2, M13 floats metween 4.5VDC and 8.75VDC while in operation,
the wires ohm OK.
Answer Rriedel, Based on your posts, everything is fine, so far. How often do you get the error code, You may want to remove the belt and turn the drum pulley by hand(be careful) and listen and feel for any slight noise or an intermittent "drag" from the tub bearing as, you turn the pulley. Also check for "sudsing" in the wash cycle and drain. Thanks and Good Luck
I am repeatedly gettting f6 error code.. Sometimes the machine will work good with several complete washing cycle and then will go back to the f6 error again.
Answer Hello Cindy. The F6 fault code indicates a drive motor tachometer error. The control unit for the washer is not able to properly detect drive motor speed. The troubleshooting for this fault code involves unplugging the washer and checking the wire harness connections between the drive motor and the motor control unit (MCU). Also, the wire harness connections between the MCU and the central control unit (CCU) need to be checked. If they are good, and the board is working, you will need to replace the motor 8182793. Hope this helps.
i've been getting an f-06 fault, hada service tech in, he ended up replacing the CCU a while back. since then the fault came back, i
just put a motor in it from you, the fault is still present. i've checked the harness it's OK, the MCU shows 23 Kohm at the motor
power leads, the motor shows 6 ohm. where do i go from here?
Answer Rriedel, Since you have a new motor and CCU, you probably have a loose connection in the harness or a faulty MCU 8182706. here are some voltage checks to make at the CCU to verify : at connector MS2 pin 1 and pin 2 should have 120 VAC, across the wires, going out to the MCU. MI3 connector pin 1 and 3 should have 5 VDC across the two wires coming back from the MCU. heres some meter usage information if you need it [http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html] good Luck and Thanks
What ohm do I check continuity on motor part?
Answer Hi Linda. You can test the motor and see if it is good. If you test across pins 1 and 2, and 2 and 3, and 1 and 3, you should have 6 ohms. If any of these read infinity, then the motor is bad. If the motor test good, you may have a bad MCU AP3861856.

Can you explain to me how to replace the drive motor assembly on my duet washer? Is it hard to do? Thank you so much for your time! Please reply.
Answer Hello Robert. The motors 8182793 are not to hard to change out. Here are the instructions from the manufacture. Hope this helps.
The drive motor can be removed once the back
panel has been removed.
Twelve screws secure the back panel to the
washer. Remove the 12 screws and remove the
back panel. Remove the Drive Belt.
Disconnect the wiring harness connectors and
ground wires from the drive motor terminals. Push
the wiring harness tie from the motor mounting
Remove the mounting bolt securing the motor to
the tub and remove the motor.
Reinstall in reverse order.
What is considered as the transmission on this model?
Answer Hello Steve! There are no parts on a front load washer that is considered a transmission or acts as a transmission. What is the problem you are having with your unit? Thanks.
