Duet GHW9160PW0 F11 Issue

My washer keeps on giving an F11 error message. If i take the top off and take all of the connectiosn of the CCU and reattach them then the machine seems to run fine for a few washes then it will start giving error messages again. Very occassionally it will give a D ll error message. Not sure if this is relevant but when the unit goes into a spin cycle the machine will shake a lot and will move its position.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Washer keeps giving a F11 error and won't reset


this is what F11 means

"F/11" 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

there's a possibility you may need to repace the motor controller(ccu) but most likely you have a bad connection between the main control(the front board) and the CCU(the board inside the washer). you need to unplug washer and get iside to check wire connections. good luck to you.

Error code F11 washer stops mid-cycle


Hi,

The F11 code means that communication between the CCU circuit board at the top of the machine and the motor control circuit board at the bottom of the machine has been lost. The problem most often found is cold solder joints on the CCU board that make and break causing the F11 code and sometimes an FdL code. To fix this you need to remove the CCU circuit board at the top of the machine and have the larger solder points of the relays and the spade connectors resoldered. If your not to handy with soldering you could just print out this response and a good appliance repair shop should be able to help you out. Good Luck.

We keep getting an f11 error during wash cycle. we un pluggged it, and tried canceling cycle and re started


Hi,

The F11 code says there's no communication between the main circuit board (CCU) and the motor or motor control board. The problem is most often in the CCU board. There are cold solder joints on the board where the relays and spade connectors are supposed to be connected to the board. Often times the vibration of the machine when it's working is enough to keep the solder joints connected. You'll need to remove the CCU and have those joints I spoke about redone. The CCU is located at the top back of the machine (you'll need to remove the top cover, 3 screws in the back then slide the top back and off) The CCU is in a plastic case. remove the connections (mark them first) then take out the whole case and then remove the circuit board. If you're not to handy with a soldering gun, just print out this response and take it to a good appliance repair shop. Good luck.

Fault code F11 keeps appearing. The washer seems to be working but within seconds of starting to wash, F11 appears.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F11 is a communication error between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU). To start with check the wire harness connections between CCU and MCU, and then check the motor. If both of them appear to be working fine then it seems that the MCU of your washer has gone bad as the control unit seems to be working fine. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

F11 error


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F11 is a communication error between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU). This usually occurs when CCU goes bad however, to check what has gone bad you’ll need to remove the top panel of the washer and also remove the rear panel to access the drive motor & MCU. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
