Kenmore Elite H3 Washer Model 44826 (Front Load) Control Unit Motor

Recently I had water in my basement and I think the bottom of my washer was in about 2 inches of water. Since it's dried out it gives me a F11 error. This happened once before and the control unit motor (or mother board - as the repair man called it) had to be replaced.

I tried disassembling the front of the washer so that I can easily reach in for the motor. I got hung up after removing the bottom panel and the next two screws for the top panel (with door). It appeared to be still attached at the top near the contol panel.

I've gone on line and printed out several diagrams but can seem to figure it out.....I'm sure it's something I'm just not seeing and I'm looking for some guidance.

Also, if you have any advise on replacing the Control Unit Motor, please let me know. Thanks.

I have a kenmore elite he3 front loader washer. it gives me a f11 code when i attempt to wash a load.


F/11 is serial communication error code. It means the communication between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU) is not good. Possible causes include worn or failed drive system components, faulty CCU or MCU, broken wiring harness, faulty drive motor, or faulty wiring harness connections in the CCU, the motor, or the MCU.

I have a kenmore elite h3 washer - Bad Water Pump?


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects(located, and mounted on the actual pump)
If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

There is not a filter per say, but there is a coin catcher in the pump assembly. remove the bottom panel and it will be right in front.

Washer won't spin - HE2 Front End Load Washer Kenmore


Check the motor control unit. It is on the bottom in the front. It connects to the central control unit. You have to take the top off in order to access it.

F/DL means the door lock.  If you take the bottom panel off (there are 3 screws), you can reach up and pull down on a lever to release the lock.  Next you need to take off the top of the washer (there are 3 screw on the back).  ONce you have the panel removed, you can see the wires and where they plug in at the back right area.  If you just jiggle them, you can get it to work again.  I am doing this right now until I can get a new computer.  My neighbor has a front loading washer of a different brand and experienced the same problem I am having now.  She is the one who told me how to fix it.
