Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
My machine actually started making loud rackets while in the spinning cycle and has now displayed the F11 code after starting the washer. It won't even start a cycle?
The F11 code is caused by either a CCU failure or an MCU failure...here's how to tell:
If your machine starts a cycle and the water fills but the drum NEVER turns, your MCU is bad...it's most cost effective to buy a refurbished one and you can get them on eBay for $99 all day long.
If your machine makes it most of the way through a cycle but throws an F11 code during the rinse or spin, your CCU has the relay solder / vibration problem...and I can fix that for $65.

Usually if this is a kenmore frontloader f11 is a communication error between the door lock and the ccu board. usually you'll hear a clicking sound before it fails. If so you need a central electric board. It is located directly under the top lid in the back. you can't miss it it's the only thing that has a lot of wires going to it.

The F11 error occurs when the central control and motor control don't talk to each other.
If one of the controls was actually bad then I'd expect to see the error code every cycle. If it does, start by checking all the wiring connections from the panel to the CCU. Post back your results.
