This video will show you how to clear tumble dryer 6th sense error code


If your whirlpool tumble dryer has stopped working and you have an error code which is usually due to some type of fault then this short video will show you how to clear the fault it can also be used on these makes Bauknecht, Laden & Maytag on some models.

To remove the condenser tumble dryer pump unit you need to do the following.

You need to use the dial of the appliance like a clock turn the knob to the of position then

  • 1st Turn the dial to six o’clock which normally does not have any markings on it.
  • 2nd Press the start button 3 times.
  • 3rd Turn dial to next position Normally on most models this is “airing” which is at 7 o’clock.
  • 4th Press the start button 3 times.

The fault should have now cleared (I have heard that on some models they have to be pressed 4 times but i have not seen this for myself yet)

The first thing you should do is clean filters, and any vent tubes of any fluff if it is a condenser dryer then you will need to empty water tank and thoroughly clean the condenser unit.

If the error code/fault reoccurs then you have a fault on the dryer and will need to find out what is wrong, you can see our new videos on whirlpool tumble dryer faults on heater, thermostats, Ntc’s sensors, the motor and capacitor, how to replace the belt, cleaning pump unit and replacing, plus many more also check our FAQ’s for more help
