Was there ever a post back for this problem? I have the same issue, and I tried replacing the central control board, but it is still giving the F11 error. I follow the troubleshooting guidelines, but it never makes it past C01. I suppose the next logical step is to look at the motor control board and then the motor.

Leaann, F11 is a serial communication error. Information between the central control and the motor control cannot be sent correctly. C01 through C08 is just the test sequence: 01=fill by cold water, 02= dispensor motor, 03=fill by hot water, 04=drum rotates clockwise, 05=heater on, drum rotates, 06=drain pump actuated, 07= drum rotates counter clockwise, 08= high spin. You are recieving a fault before the test can complete. Check your owners manual for warranty information on your main board and see if you are covered. You can remove the top (3 screws in back and slide back) and check the harness. It will be the fourth one from the right, unplug and reset. I think you have a main control board issue here...Catriver..post back.

    I have a Kenmore HE 3t front loading machine. It's 5 years old and I'm getting an F11 error and I can't complete the cycle.


    F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears. Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right. Press this button until no-spin lights. Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display. Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08. If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech

    while F09 is the water pump. It usually means something is clogging it. Take the front cover off of the washer and the water pump is located right in the middle front. Unscrew the cover to the pump and make sure there is nothing clogging it.
