The Atlant washing machine shows the error code F6 on the display - it means a reverse relay problem. On the panels of washing machines without screen, with electromechanical control, the second and third indicators are lit.
When the Atlant washing machine generates an F6 error, this may be accompanied by incorrect rotation of the motor shaft.

What does F6 Error mean: Causes and Troubleshooting
The overheating of the winding or damage to the reverse relay contacts failed - F6 was highlighted on the screen. Why do you need a relay? The device allows you to start the engine washing machine Atlant.
Here is the correct installation diagram for the relay:
The arrow must always point upwards.
What does this mean?
During engine start-up, the starting current passes through the relay coil( 2).The magnetic field formed there begins to tighten the core( 1), which raises the contact( 3) and closes the circuit. As a result, the motor winding turns on, it starts and develops momentum.
Look at the diagram:
Additionally, the contacts of the reverse relay that could be disconnected are checked, resulting in a breakdown. Then you need to install them in place.
How to fix the damage and correct the situation? Do not rush to immediately dismantle the SMA Atlant and check the details. If you see F6 on the display, try resetting the error.
Unplug the CM from the socket. Wait 15-20 minutes. Once connected, you should be able to clear the error if the cause is a system failure. If the Atlas washing machine again gives F6 error, the failure is much more serious.
Checking the engine
It is necessary to check the operation of the motor or reverse relay. What does it mean? You will have to remove the engine from the washing machine Atlant, and then check the elements of its design.
What to do:
- Disconnect power from the washer by unplugging the plug.
- Remove the back cover of the machine Atlant, unscrew the screws.
- Remove the drive belt from the engine below.
- Remove all bolts that secure the motor.
- Unplug the connectors and remove the motor.
Now successively check the components of the electric motor on the washing machine Atlant. In case of malfunction, it may be necessary to replace the device or its reverse relay.
How to test or replace, is described in detail in the article on the elimination of error code F12.
You may be able to remove the F6 from the Atlas CM display without the participation of the wizard. Good luck!
