Question about Whirlpool WED8300S Dryer

Whirlpool dryer wed8300swz error code 11

Well it looks like 11. There are just two slashes like two ones beside each other. There is nothing else. Also when I try to find model# WED8300SWZ the model number that comes up wants to put a 0 and not a Z.

SOURCE: Error Code

Here's some magic help on the dryers: I have a duet sport- Whirlpool hides the complete service manual inside the cover at the bottom front of the machine- remove the bottom 2 screws, drop the cover & you have all test & service instructions--- (:

SOURCE: Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto

I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!

SOURCE: My whirlpool gas dryer keeps coming up with E1

The E1 code means there is an open thermistor. This thermistor is located on top of the blower housing. Access it by removing the bottom panel on the front of the dryer. This device is not repairable, so unless it's just a loose connection or the device is not firmly mounted, it will need to be replaced.

Unplug the dryer before you work on it!

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer model number lgr7648kq1 won't get

Sounds like one of the cavity switches is bad. Open back of dryer, you will see wires that attach to little clip next to each other. Try jumping wire from one side to the other, do one switch at a time and try dryer to see if heats, if you get heat replace that switch. These switches burn out if dryer gets to hot, usually from to much lint in duct work. Also vacuum out duct work in wall and on back of dryer.

F1 error code is a miscommunication between the control board and the rest of the machine. Check for any loose or damaged wires. If no loose or damaged wires are found, replace the control board and this should clear up your problem.

I have a whirlpool duet washer with error code f 11 please help!!!!

The F11 error code means "Motor control unit error". If there is nothing wrong with the wire harness, then looks like the motor control unit (MCU) has to be replaced.
I would FIRST replace the door latch/lock assembly it has cleared this problem for some people and is the cheapest part for this problem.
It can be found here:
