"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.

"F02" is a Long Drain error. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Most commonly, your drain pump has something clogged in it causing the drain flow to be obstructed. I would begin by checking the drain pump reservoir. I provided a follow-on link with the advice I gave you that explains how to do this. If you have any questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore elite HE 3t - error code F dU and door is locked


Just in case there is a pull string with a loop, all plastic under the latch, need to pull the toe panel off and reach up inside the right, unplugged of course until you feel the switch. a pull latch is below the switch incase this happens and hats off to all star/ a serial error or a faulty switch is most of what causes this to start.

Lights on Front Panel Flashing


Another posibility is the door lock switch is broken. When you open the door, on the middle right hand side there should be a small pin sticking out from the washer that the door pushes on.

F 11 Error Code


The door will stay locked if the machine did not drain properly. Try running a Drain & Spin cycle.
