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.

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.


Thanks

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.

Whirlpool Duet washer GIVES ME f11 ERROR CODE


The F11 error code means that there is a communication error between the CCU (central control unit) and the MCU (Motor Control Unit) and it is not sending the message correctly. Check the wire harness connectors to the MCU and the CCU. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components. Check the MCU and the CCU and the motor. You may need a qualified repair technician for this one.

MY MACHINE GIVES ME A F 11 ERROR AND STOPS


Hi there,
F-11 is communication error between the Motor control unit and the Main CCU. Either of these or both could be bad. Sometimes unplugging all the connections from the CCU (under top panel) and plugging them back in will fix the problem. If fixed, there's a bad connection at the CCU.
Good Luck!

Whirlpool Duet Washer GHW9150PWO Have F11 and DL errors. Have replaced the door lock 2 x and still have same error messages.


Well du is a door lock error but it can also mean an error with communication to the main control board or ccu. f11 is also a communication error in either the ccu or the mcu ( motor control board)......easiest thing to try is to unplug all your connections to the ccu and plug them back in and try it again.....sometimes a wire harness just may be loose....if that dosent work I would look at replacing the ccu ( central control unit )
