I really appreciate your post on the Kenmore F11 code... I have had a tech here and ordered a new door latch (although mine works just fine). Can you tell me how to place a HE5t into "self test" mode??? Any other tips???
We have been with out our washer for 2 weeks and the tech will not return for another week to tell me that his first "hunch" didnt work and surly order more parts that will take another 2 weeks to receive and another week after that to schedule another appointment with Sears' tech... PLEASE help??

Re: Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer Error Code F11
F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears. Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right. Press this button until no-spin lights. Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display. Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08. If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.

Kenmore HE5t Washer Repair for Error Code F21 & Sud ... The only other suggestion is to turn the breakers ...
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
In general for Kenmore (Whirlpool) washers 'F11' means 'communication error (control unit)' which sounds bad BUT can often be cured relatively easily. It can be caused by poor connections between the control unit, cables/plugs/sockets and other parts in the washer. The cure is to unplug and re-plug the cables/plugs/sockets such that the connections are cleaned by the act of doing it.
The down side is that it will probably require an engineer's visit, sorry ;-0(
The F30 error code will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.
* It could have a mechanical failure in the linkage between the dispenser motor and the top of the dispenser. * Loose wire connection between the machine control board and the dispenser motor * Failed dispenser motor

f 35 is not in my info book . if you remove front panel 3 screws at bottom . inside there is a tec sheet with the fault codes. i would ck the clean out for the pump . it is right in front when panel is off . this may solve your prob .. .. mm
this looks like a classic whirlpool control board issue. fault is a communication error between board and panel. check connections. whirlpool always recommends replacing both at same time. very common problem.
