This seems to be a communication error and it is possible that there is harness issue from the main panel to the motor panel. remove and reset the connections.

Press cancel or if that doesn't work unplug the washer from the main socket - this should clear all the settings so that you can reset the washer.

SOURCE: we keep getting a f11 and fdl code on our

"F11" is a Serial Communications error code. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r666194-f11_error_whirpool_duet_kenmore_elite

The "Fdl" error code indicates a problem with the door latch, which may be the reason why the door will not unlock.

Now...before assuming you have any failed components, try unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). In many cases, these error codes are erroneous and can be reset in this manner. If the error code reappears following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem.

Read through the link provided for pointers on how to troubleshoot the F11 error code. The two errors in conjunction with each other, usually indicates a failed CCU. The CCU controls the latching mechanism on the door. If the CCU is not communicating with the door latch correctly, the latch doesn't operate and you get the additional error code (Fdl).

You can trace the wires from the door latch to the CCU and unplug and reset them one at a time to make sure you have a good electrical connection as well. Do the same on the door latch end as well. To access, you simply need to remove the top panel of the washer. Remove the three screws in the back of the washer that holds the panel in place. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back and then lift off. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub in the top center of the washer. NOTE: Make sure you UNPLUG the washer while doing this.

If you need to retrieve your clothes and the door remains locked, there is a manual release you can use to open the door. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

I know this may be a lot to read through. Try the CCU reset first. This is the easiest option and doesn't require you to remove anything. Hopefully, this will correct your problem(s).

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

    you'll need to call someone in on this one,boards are very expensive and like it says it names both the ccu and mcu boards or the motor,if you call say whirlpool they might give you the part but you pay for labor and they will have the boards on the truck,the guy will replace one board at a time to see what one is bad,not like the older machines that you can check the parts with a meter.good luck

    Whirlpool Duet F11


    Seems that the fault is within the main control panel board. It can be due to failure of the drive relay or semiconductor within and might need a board level service or a replacement of the board.

    Hello my washer is giving me a f11 code


    I'm judging you have a front load Duet washer. The F11 code means there is no communication between the central control unit and the motor control unit. Whirlpool has some poor quality control on it's circuit boards and there's cold solder joints that cause F codes like yours to show-up. All the relays and spade connectors on the upper circuit board need to be touched-up.

    My Duet GHW 9150P has code f11. what do I need to check


    I would open your bottem panel. There should be an owners/service manual in the inside of the battom panel somwhere. If not on the botton, slide the top panel off and check along the inner side walls for a service manual. These usually have the error codes and descriptions.hope this helps

    Error code f11


    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.

    My whirlpool duet is giving me a dl error or F11. The door will not unlock and my clothes are stuck in the washer.


    F11 is a communications error between the main control board and the motor control board. You can first try to unplug the washer for a few minutes. Plug it back in and see if it will reset. If not one of the two control boards may be bad. Another thing you can try is to unplug all the wiring harnesses on both boards and plug them back in. It could just be a loose harness. The main control board is under the top panel in the back. The motor control board is behind the bottom panel on the left.
