Kenmore elite HE3t 2004 washer quits during spin with f11 code

The machine acts fine but then when it gets to the spin cycle it just seems to start beeping and will not run anymore. I looked in the book and it says it is some type of electrical problem.thank you. Cheryl Myrick

Under the bottom panal (after you remove it) look to the left towards the middle and you will notice a white box looking part, this was our problem and sears ended paying 100% of parts which run about $215 before labor, this is a very easy fix and my husband replaced that and also our control buttons all werent working which sears also paid for 100% after much bickering over the phone and the service man taking care of it for me! it took him about 20 min to do both parts and our washer is working like a pro again! Our washer is the HE 4T and was flashing the F 6 AND F11! this is a lemon machine and sears should realize it and actually take care of its customers! i did notice a class action law suit on this machine and i have emailed the attorney taking care of it,

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

The "F11" fault code will display if the Motor Control Unit (MCU) has an internal failure; repeating under or over voltage, or over current conditions. If failure occurs during high speed spin the door unlocks after 3 minutes. The MCU (Motor Control Unit) is located beside the motor. Here is the part to order.

During the washing process the washer stops and the code F11 comes up. I have a Kenmore Elite He3t. Modle # 110.42926201


Hi, The F11 fault is actually described in the tech sheet as a "Serial Communication Fault" involving the MCU (the washers computer) and the DC Drive assembly that runs the motor. If you are not familiar with a DC drive, it is simply a controller for the motor that varies the voltage to the motor to change speeds. This is so the washer can crawl slowly to tumble your clothes as well as spin at the ridiculously high speeds using the same motor. I would argue that "Jay's" is wrong about the door latch - there is a different specific code for that malfunction (I think it flashes F and DL). I wish it was the door lock - that's cheap, unfortunately, I think you are in for a MCU @ ~$200.

Take care

F11 code on kenmore frontload washer HE3t


My f11 code is repaired! I got a clamp from Home Depot put it on the ccu unit on the right side tightened it shut and haven't got the stinking f11 code ever since. No more banging it again! I can finally do my wash without the horror beeping sound going off every time.
