F11 door lock problem

The problem began when the load was heavy now any load will result in the problem and it occurs daily. Nothing seems to work in getting this repaired. Should have bought a top load at 1/2 the price. Any suggestions from anyone.

    I had the door open in the middle of a load. It was a heavy load, and it broke my door handle. I now have the door taped to do laundry until I get a new handle. Fun!

Hello sadie172

You said, the problem began when the load was heavy now any load will result in the problem and it occurs daily. Nothing seems to work in getting this repaired.

How old is your ghw9150 washer?
Try unplugging the washer for 5minutes or turning off the breaker will do too!
then after you turn on the power the system should be reset and problem may be solved!

If for some reason the proplem persists we have available service peaople in your area listed here on our site

Let me know.

Error F11 during the wash cycle


The error means that the controller is not talking to the other components. It is very expensive to repair,. If you want to run tests on it, there is a tech sheet behind the kick panel under the door.

I hope that you have a serivce contract or something on this unit you need a main control board f11 means that there is communication error between the 2 computer boards the fdl means that there is is door lock problem. But that is incorrect that is how you know which board has the problem the door lock is controlled by the main computer board. it's just playing tricks on you I have tried changing the door lock with those codes and it did nothing. that board tends to be alittle pricey .good luck.

Door locked/ cycle won't complete


If you need to get the washer door open, there is a manual release lever that you can use. The following links explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

Now, with your clothes rescued, the next link explains the "F11" error:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r666194-f11_error_whirpool_duet_kenmore_elite

I know it seems like a lot with the second link. In most cases I have found, the CCU is the cause of the F11 error code, but read through the information carefully and doublecheck everything. It can be replaced if you wish to perform the repair yourself. I hope this helps you.

Random electrical problems, sometimes it works beautifully, sometimes not!


F11 = Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the
Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any
cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted
upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the
MCU connectors.
