Whirlopool duet washer GHW 9150 PWO

Could you please e-mail repair manual for this washer. After months of frustration with f dl and f11 codes, I am trying to get new Central Control Unit. I think the part is 8182695, but on top of the part it says el:20711. I haven't been able to locate that part. Please send to pjcmartin@comcast.net

    After much complaining to Whirlpool, I was able to finally obtain the microcomputer. It was a simple installation and it cost me nothing but time. If anyone has this problem, you need to replace this component.

We have a Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 Washer that we have had for 5 years. It has been flashing F11 and DL back and forth for months. We had a tech come out (not sure he knew what he was talking about) and...


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"

Thanks

MY W.MASHINE AWM8000 HAVE PROBLEM,IN DISPLAY WRITE F 11 OR F DL.WHAT IS THIS


Washer will suddenly stop with 1 minute left on cycle and shows the F11 error code...at times it may show the FdL code. The washer will then not finish no matter what I do. If I unplug the unit from the outlet that does not guarantee that when I plug it back in it will start up. Fifty percent of the time it still shows the F11 error. It can take hours to finally get the washer to cancel out so I can take the laundry out that has not been spun out.

The F11 error code indicates a serial communication problem between the central control board and the motor control board. This can be caused by:

  • A loose or failed wire harness connection between the central control board and the motor control board.
  • A bad wire harness connection between the motor control board and the drive motor.
  • A failed drive motor.
  • A defective motor control board.
  • A failure in the central control board.

The diagnosis of this failure usually requires a technician. If you are able to unplug the washer and safely access the central control board and motor control board, you can check for a loose wire harness connection. Beyond that, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer. The location of the internal washer components and component access for the central control board and the motor control board are in the images below.

I have a kenmore elite smartwash quietPak9. I continue to get an F11 code and a dL code. What does this mean and can it be fixed?


F11 Serial communication error
Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the
Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
Possible causes/procedure:
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any
cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted
upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the
MCU connectors.
F dl Door lock error
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock
it six times before displaying the error code.
Possible causes/procedure:
¦ Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door.
¦ Door switch/lock unit failure.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check door switch/lock unit.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door
switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).
Your tech sheet is attached to the base panel.
Use that tech sheet as a guide for diagnostics.

My washer shows a F-11 code or a dl code and I have had service out for this. They say it needs a new computer board which will be around $700. I am so frustrated with this machine and how much I paid for...


The F11 error is a Serial Communication Error.
Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
  • Check MCU
  • Check CCU
  • Check Motor
  • Check Wire Harness
The DL code is a Door Lock Error
A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.

  • Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
  • Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

$700 for this is a crazy price so try some other repair people.

F11 and DL failure codes


The F11 error indicates a communications error between the CCU (Central Control Unit) and the MCU (Motor Control Unit). Check the wiring harness and connections at both the CCU and MCU. Unplug them and check for corrosion on the terminals / pins, clean them if necessary then reconnect them securely. As there is a D11 error as well it indicates a problem with the door lock relay, faulty hall sensor, faulty CCU or faulty MCU. If you still have the problem then call in a repair man to fix it.

Hi

    YA, I HAVE A PROBLEM SAME AS THE OTHERS. AND JUST LIKE THE MANUAL SAYS, YOU ARE SAYING TO CHECK EVERYTHING, BUT YOU WILL NOT TELL US HOW TO CHECK IT, WHAT IT IS SUPPOSE TO SOUND AND LOOK LIKE, WHAT IS NORMAL. SO WE CAN TELL WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT. I DON'T HAVE ALL THIS MONEY TO SPEND ON REPAIR MEN WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. SO WHAT SHOULD I DO. OH AND P.S. F-28 DOES SHOW UP ON THE WASHER SO IT REALLY IS A ERROR CODE.
