The F6 error code is telling you a relay has stuck on the control board (called a microcomputer in the parts diagram). The part number for the control board is 8169708R for a rebuilt board with the same warranty as a new one. The price is around $85.00.

Actually, the 665 model number prefix means it's made by Whirlpool, and in their codes, the F6 is a failure of the door switches.

Try it while gently lifting up and alternately pushing down on the door / handle.

Diagnosing and replacing door switches in not too hard a job for a DIYer is you follow the safety rules.


We're happy to help.
