F/11 is serial communication error code. It means the communication between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU) is not good. Possible causes include worn or failed drive system components, faulty CCU or MCU, broken wiring harness, faulty drive motor, or faulty wiring harness connections in the CCU, the motor, or the MCU.
Motor Tachometer Error
control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the
machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed
spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.
wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer
and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU
and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
probably main control bd ..remove top ..rear support small box with all the wires ck for loose connection first..no tool other that a torx tip driver to remove top and a small screwdriver to help in removing clips holding wires in code means communication error
Serial Communication Error
Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit
(MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
• Check Wire Harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control
• Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
• Check MCU
• Check CCU
• Check Motor
• Check Wire Harness
Sounds to me like the Main Computer has failed. F11 means it is not communicating with the Motor control Board. It has nothing to do with the door locks. Remove to lid of the machine to axcess Main control. Sometimes a tap or two on the board makes them work again for a short time. Leave unit powered down for a few mins to reset board.
The "F" variables (F4-F16) are for electrical problems. You should select Pause/Cancel twice then select Drain/Spin if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press start. According to the manual, if the problem remains, call for service.
