SOURCE: Kenmore Elite H3 error code F11
F11 is a serial communication error. It is recomended to check connections from the motor control unit to the ccu. We are looking for the blue wires that carry info from component to component. The ccu is on top under the cover positioned in back for older machines and front right for new machines. The mcu, motor control unit is behind the kick panel below the door and is front left usually.Again we want to unplug check for dark or crusty connections if not to carefully reseat the connection and not only the blue serial wires but power as well. Remember to first unplug the machine and while you work the machine can reset, 30 minutes is typical.

"F11" is a serial communications error. The following link explains the possible causes and how to troubleshoot:
First, attempt to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). In many cases, this is all that is required in order to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, follow the advice provided in the link. In the majority of the cases, I've experienced, it was the CCU that caused the problem.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

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.

Hello steve o - Typically error code F11 indicates a shorted keypad. Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually will clear most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if the error code does not clear contact a professional to move forward accurately. Most likely the EOC on the range will need replacing.
