Question about Washing Machines
Lid lock assembly broke, replaced that, took forever to figure out why it didn't just start, then got error message CO and another time H81. Idiotic company did not define error messages in any documentation so it took two days to find a forum with information that helped me figure that far. I heard water sloshing when I moved machine, and CO my be a pump issue, so I may have change stuck in the pump. Why does the buying public have to work so hard to keep machines working? Why can't Whirlpool and the rest build a machine that works a few years? Why can't I get a guide telling me what I can really expect? Because nobody would buy this **** anymore.

more than likely your carbon brushes which are situated in the motor under the outer drum these are held in by 2 star screws and are covered in a plastic casing if under 8ml in length then they need replacing as when new they are about 20ml in length change these and it will work let me know how u go on m8

SOURCE: f11 code washer locks up
The shaking and vibration of the washer makes sense. I took off the top cover and just pushed on the circuit board connections and the washer instantly worked. Some of the connections did feel loose and by simply making sure they were connected tightly worked. Save yourself a service call and try this first. The circuit board is easy to get to. Just remove the three screws from the back and the top cover comes right off. This is for both the f11 and f dl fault codes.

was absolutely the corrosion in the left lid lock, had eaten right through the wire. this site was awesome....always check te left first, it has the sensor to tell the machine it is open.

Buy a new machine. We purchased ours from Sears 4 years ago, thank goodness we purchased the extended warranty, as Sears has been out numerous times to repair. In January 08, Sears replaced the pump only after they forced us to sign a waiver before they would even touch it, because my washing machine sits in a drain pan and they didn't install the drain pan. We signed the waiver (I need my washer) and the tech destroyed the drain pan and my my floor, basically she forced me to give her permission to do so. February 08 the extended warranty expired, June 08 the pump quit working again and Sears only warrantys part replacement for 90 days. BTW - the previous Whirlpool calypso model and Kenmore had a class action suit against them. Sounds like the newer models owners should do the same. Sears techs even told us to get rid of it. We bought a new one from Home Depot...
