Range, Refrigeration and washer Fault Codes are very much used these days on the newer Electonic Controls.

This guide may be incomplete as manufactures use different parts on different models. This is a general guide to fault codes. We assume no responsibility for any action taken on your part as a result of using this guide. Consult your owners manual, as it may give the fault codes for your particular model. Contact a local servicer for repairs.

If you didn't find your model/ brand in these fault code charts Contact us! Maybe we can help find your code.

The Whirlpool & KitchenAid Fault page is a long page. Please Scroll down for your model.



Microwave error code:

F6E0 House Power Supply  Most “F6-E0” complaints have been due to loose connections at the house power supply. Verify electrical connections are good at the house power supply Unit Terminal Block "F6 E0” code can also result when L1 is not connected.  Verify correct voltage betweenL1 to L2 at the unit terminal block. Appliance Manager Board "P1" Connector The MW Appliance Manager (AM) board is powered on L1 and will not 'talk' to the display board if L1 doesn't make it to the board. Verify the correct voltage is present between P1-1 (L1) and P1-2 (N) of the MW Appliance Manager. Fuses & Thermostats An open microwave monitor fuse, Cavity thermostat or an open 20A magnetron fuse (next to the AM) will produce an F6E0 error. Check that all fuses and thermostats are operating correctly Appliance Manager Board The MW Appliance Manager Board can crack at the corners where the screws attach it to the support. Look for cracks at the corners where the mounting screws secure the board. If cracks are found, the board will need to be replaced. Caution should be taken when replacing MW Appliance Manager Board. The board can flex when connectors are lugged and unplugged and cause cracks.

Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
If memory serves me right it takes about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled
