Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
I believe we have just had our Control Unit replaced on this machine. During our 1st load since this was replaced we experienced problems and by the thrid the F11 Fault including Flashing Start/Pause and some of the Spin Speed Buttons were flashing.
What are possible causes for the Control Unit to need to be replaced again after only 3 washes.
Thanks for you help. I have now looked at your "Tips and Tricks" about the F11 error. I guess our repairer will carry out those checks as you have suggested. Sorry about not giving you feedback prior to rating. This rating was given purely because you didn't offer anymore answers than I had already done, in hindsight I did not provide you with all the information to allow you to make a more informed decision.

Try unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes before assuming you have a failed component. Sometimes you may experience a momentary glitch in the CCU. Unplugging the washer for this duration will often reset the error and return to normal operation. If the error code reappears, and it was just recently replaced, I strongly recommend getting in touch with the repair service you used. Most reputable companies guarantee their parts and labor against defects (some companies as much as 90 days). If this is a repeat failure, it may just be a bad lot of CCU boards and the company should replace it free of charge. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
