Ok first you need to remove the front cover below the loading door... (Should be 3 Phillips screws on the very bottom). You will see a white cap in the very center. You are going to need a bowl to catch some water and probably some debris when you remove it....Make sure you get all the debris (coins wrappers...ect...) out before you put the cap back on the drain...Then try to run a normal cycle again. You can always run the diagnostic program that is found in the manual which is also located behind that front bottom cover........If its any think like mine you will make about $2.75 and find lost of gum wrappers.......I also had to replace the cpu (Microcomputer) due to the fact that I was still getting the F11 error… If you are hearing a faint clicking sound coming from the top back (before you get the F11 error) then I know for sure you need to replace the cpu... I will give you the link to the site where you can buy it....If you have any type of home protection plan I would just call them and pay the service fee (mine is only $50)....its going to be cheaper…. If you decide to buy the part and do it yourself make sure you get the model number off the Microcomputer. The top cover is just as easy to take off...the cpu will be located in the center on top and will also be white in color... Please make sure the washer is unplugged before you remove any covers….I hope this helps....please let me know....and here is that link to the website http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx

    Tip

    Fix your F11 FDL error forever.....


    STOP the insanity....that's what you're saying if you encounter the F11 and/or fDL error codes on your washer. If you're not there yet, you will be soon....
    The dreaded F11 and/or fDL codes - been there done ALL that!! Our Whirlpool DUET washer is just over 5 years. We experienced our first F11 code 6 months ago (warranty just expired what else is new?). When it first happened, I thought nothing of it - hit the cancel button and the machine reset itself. Then it happened again and again and again. Each time it happened it was more challenging to reset it. I searched for the fix on line - I should have done my research before we purchased the washer.
    I was able to determine the error was stemming from the CCU board. Order a new one at over $300.00 and have the same thing happen again - I don't think so. We tried EVERYTHING suggested on multiple websites.....unplugging the washer, hitting the right upper side, checking wires, wiggling the wires, wedging things to improve contacts, soldering, re-soldering, Vaseline, changed relays....anything and everything was a temporary fix. Contact Whirlpool directly? Tried that too, they apparently don't recognize there is an issue with F11 fDL errors, "not a commonly called in concern". Really?? We started searching washers to purchase....I couldn't bare spending $$$ for another washer, but we are a busy active family with 4 kids - what are our options? Then one night after searching the websites for one last desperate attempt at salvaging our washer, I followed through on a link:

    email: selling.surplus@gmail.com

    Now, I'm the biggest sceptic in the world and the most frugal consumer - really I am. I am posting my testament to this service because I've been there - frustrated, disappointed, angry. I am so pleased with the service Ed provided - from answering all my questions, to the superb job he did on the CCU. You can review all the comments posted by all his other pleased customers on eBay. I had to stand by my washer for the first 6 loads - just in case the beep beep beeps started. To my astonishment, amazement, and surprise - it never happened!! In my opinion, this is the only true fix for your F11/Fdl error!!
    I never imagined in my wildest dreams ever telling anyone how happy I am to be doing my laundry again, but I really am!!

    I have an F11 code on my kenmore front load washing machine


    After years of suffering from random F11 that became a permanent F11, I did the repair as in the video and all is good for 2 years. No more F11. About one load a day (we have kids!)

    F11 and beeping


    Unfortunately the f11 error means the clock is shorted. I have actually seen this issue several times on this unit. Its not your fault and theres nothing you did or could have done prevent this issue. You need to have the clock replaced to fix the error code. The clock on this model is the brains of the operations. Here is the part to order.
    There is also a video on that parts page to show you how to make the repair.

    All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

    When the washer goes into spin cycle, it makes a very loud noise and then the spin cycle stops and F11 appears on the screen


    This just happened to me tonight too - but I ddint get the F11 code.
    When I stopped the machine, there were small plastic threads everywhere and when I investigated - the white plastic ring that is covered by the gasket - if you pull the gasket back you can see it - was shredded! I am afraid of the cost to fix this one. My machine is about 7 years old. Is it fixable - or should I give up?

    I have an E4 front loader it is flashing F11 what does that mean?


    If you're handy, there's a guy on Ebay who seems to specialize in the F11 problem. Here's the web address:

    I know nothing about him, but he has great feedback.

    IT doesnot starts.and F11 isblinking,


    If your machine is a whirlpool duet front load machine, the problem is in the circuit board (CCU) inside at the top, back of the machine. There are cold solder joints at the points where the relays and connector spades are supposed to be soldered to the circuit board (when they don't make contact well enough they set codes like F11 and FdL) The board will need to come out and those points touched-up. If you can do the job yourself that's great, if not, just print out this response and show it to the service person or take the board into a good appliance repair center, they should be able to help you out. Good luck.

    PLACEHOLDER FOR ART
    To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.
    If Pause/Cancel does not work:
    1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
    2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
    NOTE: If the error remains on the display, then call for service.

    Take care

    I have a F11 failure. Initially stopped after 2 minutes. But after disconnecting and reconnecting wires to ccu it worked for a couple of days. Then began to stop after 10-12 minutes - then again F11 fault....
