The electronic control board is damaged. It needs to be replaced. I think its Part#8182237. As of this date, it is on back-order. Check your warranty book on this part, it is highly expensive. It may be covered under a 2-5 yr. part only warranty.

The symptoms are pretty specific for the F11 code on the Whirlpool Duet front loaders and clones (Kenmore Elite and KitchenAid):

If the washer starts to fill but the drum NEVER moves, your MCU is bad

If the washer runs through most of a cycle and then gives the F11 before (or during) a rinse or spin cycle, then you have the CCU relay problem.

If you are interested in having me repair your CCU for you, I offer that service on eBay (website coming soon). My username there is "jhagner"

Thanks

Kenmore Elite 5t shows an F30 code, water fill solenoid is making a noise like its not opening


This is a dispenser motor issue. If you pull the unit out and remove the 3 screws coming into the back of the top panel, you can remove the top panel to access the top of the dispenser. There is a motor that turns a plastic lever on the dispenser. you might be able to manually help the arm move to get past the error code, but ultimately you will need to replace the dispenser motor. Here is the part to order.

The "F11" fault code will display if the Motor Control Unit (MCU) has an internal failure; repeating under or over voltage, or over current conditions. If failure occurs during high speed spin the door unlocks after 3 minutes. The MCU (Motor Control Unit) is located beside the motor. Here is the part to order.

Hello

Please see this weblink here for a ton of info on your problem.

F11 = Serial Communication Error. Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

Do this = Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components.
