Whirlpool Duet Washmachine F11Code

My wash machine is giving an F11 code with around 10 minutes or less left in the cycle every 3rd or 4 wash, when set to he normal cycle. I ran the trouble shooting test and everything checked out ok. I followed your advice and concluded the CCU was bad. However, when I run the wash machine on any cycle (heavy duty, bright whites, delecate..) except normal, I do not get an error code. This has caused me to question if it is the CCU.

both this parts needs to be checked.
You will have to check the following to confirm where the fault exactly is:---

What does the code F11 mean?!


This information is taken directly from the Whirlpool trouble shooting guide we found on our Duet Sport. I quote: "The motor control unit has internal failure; repeating under or over voltage, or over current conditions." Possible Causes/Procedures 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the motor control unit. And between the motor control unit and the central control unit. Check the motor and do a continuity test. 3. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 4. Check the motor control unit by by looking for operations of the drive motor. 5. Check the drive motor for powered rotations. 6. Replace the motor control unit.
As previously stated, this is quoted directly from the guide. Hope that helps.

Quits in cycle and flashes F11 or FdL


From Catriver/fixya, this site.
F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the central control unit and the motor control unit cannot be sent correctly. Possible solutions: Check the harness between the two boards for loose connection. Driver motor, main board or motor control board may be bad. I have come across a number of these with loose connections and bad main boards. Put it into a test by pressing drain/spin on the left side. Then press the spin speed button on the right until no spin is lit. Then press the pre-wash button on the right 4 times until 00 comes up in the display. You are now in the automatic test mode. Let it do it's thing about 15 minutes and see if the error comes again.

The dl means doorlock. (F=fault) These machines are notorious for bad solder joints in the main control board in the door lock circuit. You could have a bad door latch but I doubt it. You can keep trying to start it and sometimes it will work and sometimes not. Remove the top of the washer. It is held on by three screws at the rear of the top. Slide back and lift up.
You will see the control at the top rear of machine. There are two connectors that plug to the board with pink wires. The board will be marked dl1 and dl2 where they plug in. Wiggle these connectors and try the machine again.
If your machine is less then 2 years old the board may still be covered by warranty. Check your owners manual for details.
