Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
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=Serial Communication Error
Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit
(MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
• Check Wire Harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control
• Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
• Check MCU
• Check CCU
• Check Motor
• Check Wire Harness
F28= No such Code could be out of the fact you have a F11

"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.
