Question about Washing Machines
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??
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.
