Kenmore Elite smart wash quiet pak 9 Front Load Washer

Error F 11 or dl and the signal beeps. When attempt to clear cycle, it will not shut off and door will not open and it will not restart cycle. I then try to clear cycle by unplugging from wall. When I replug it in, it still has previous cycle lit up. sometimes it will allow me to clear cycle at that point so I can open door. the error signal happens at different points during the cycle, It is not consistent. sometimes small amount of water in bottom. I try different cycles, like drain and spin to complete cycle, but no cycle finishes everytime

    I hate my washer because of this. I don't suggest anyone buying the Kenmore Elite. Too "smart" for it's own good.

I've been fighting this for years. I regret having this washer. Sometimes, a good "pound" on the top will help. I don't suggest anyone buying this washer b/c of this. Too "smart" for it's own good.

have you tried lower spin speeds? I found with heavy items such as towels and jeans it is best to lower the spin speed. also washing like heavy items on a certain wash cycle is best - i.e. towels on bluky/bedding.

hope that helps.

With the front door open, see if you can rotate the basket freely.  If not, most likely the bearing of the rear tub is worn out.  You will have to replace the whole rear tub which is about $300 for the part.  I am having the same issue with my Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 2.  I'm contemplating with just buy a new top-load washer.
