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

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!)

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?

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.
