Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Open Question

How do i reset my whirlpool duet

Is there a "reset" button on the Whirlpool Duet washer? I have this awesome front loader but it had an F11 code on it and so we had a someone come fix it. After finding a pen and a green plastic army man (yikes) in the bottom of the washer unit, it was "fixed" and all should have worked again. Unfortunately, although I know it was fixed, it still is doing the same code F11 and the cycle won't go for more than 30 seconds before stopping and showing this code. SO my question is: IS there a reset button that will cancel the code and allow it to work? I can't find it any where in the manual.

"F11" is a serial communications error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and Motor Control Unit (MCU), or interconnecting wiring. In a nutshell, the CCU, (which is the main computer board for the washer) has more than likely failed. You can try disconnecting the connectors and plugging them back in on the CCU, but I haven't had much luck with that remedy. You will need to UNPLUG the washer & take the washer top off by removing the three screws in the back to gain access to it. Once removed, slide the top back and then lift up. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub.

If you cannot get the fault to clear and wish to repair this yourself, you can find the part at repairclinic.com. Just type in your complete model number and look for item number 1176592. The part lists for about $157. Searspartsdirect.com also has the part for much more, but offers informative troubleshooting diagrams. The CCU can be found under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 15 (part #8182695). If you wish to do some comparative pricing of your own, use the part number provided by the Sears website.

If the washer still carries a warranty, this would be covered. Doublecheck with the manufacturer on how long some parts are covered. Some of the electronics and mechanical parts are covered beyond the one-year limited warranty that generally comes with your appliance.

I know this may be discouraging news, but you can repair this yourself and avoid labor costs. It may seem expensive, but considering how much these washers cost (I know, because I own one), it may be worth the effort. I hope this helps you. Post back if you have further questions or need instructions.

    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!)

    The symptoms are pretty specific for the F11 code on the Whirlpool Duet front loaders and clones (Kenmore Elite and KitchenAid):

    If the washer starts to fill but the drum NEVER moves, your MCU is bad

    If the washer runs through most of a cycle and then gives the F11 before (or during) a rinse or spin cycle, then you have the CCU relay problem.

    If you are interested in having me repair your CCU for you, I offer that service on eBay (website coming soon). My username there is "jhagner"

    I have a Whirlpool Duet front loader Washer approximately 6 years old. The control lock is on and I can't start the washer. How do I resolve this problem.


    This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

    This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

    Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

    Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

    Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

    Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

    These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

    NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Frigidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your specific model.

    If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.
