If the problem is, indeed, the Motor Control Unit, you can find this part at appliancepartspros.com for about $243. Still a bit expensive, but far less than the $800 repair quote you got. Go to the website and search by part number. Use part number 8183196. I hope this helps you. If you require further assistance, please let me know.

    This should be a very simple process of repair. All you have to do is UNPLUG the washer and remove the back panel. The Motor Control Unit (MCU) is located on either the right or left hand side (depending on model) of the bottom of the washer. Simply disconnect all electrical connectors and loosen the mounting screws that hold the MCU in place. The entire board should slide out at that point. Install the new MCU using the same procedures in reverse order. NOTE: Avoid handling the circuit board. Hold the edges of the board when installing to avoid Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) - which is caused by static electricity in your body. This can potentially damage circuit cards.



    If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

We have a Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 Washer that we have had for 5 years. It has been flashing F11 and DL back and forth for months. We had a tech come out (not sure he knew what he was talking about) and...


The symptoms are pretty specific for the F11 code on the Whirlpool Duet front loaders and clones (Kenmore Elite and KitchenAid):

If the washer starts to fill but the drum NEVER moves, your MCU is bad

If the washer runs through most of a cycle and then gives the F11 before (or during) a rinse or spin cycle, then you have the CCU relay problem.

If you are interested in having me repair your CCU for you, I offer that service on eBay (website coming soon). My username there is "jhagner"

Thanks

Hi After a year of using my Kenmore Elite HE5T washing machine, Model #110 47789701, serial #CSW2733428 I am getting an error F35 and Sub. Could you please let me know how to fix it? Thanks Barb


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F35 error means that there is some sort of issue with the steamer electronic board and analog pressure sensor has gone bad. Check that the hose is firmly attached with the washer and is not blocked. You can also check the water level pressure switch operation. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

What is error code F11 on a Kenmore washer


F11 is a Serial Communication error.

Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears.
Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right.
Press this button until no-spin lights.
Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display.
Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08.

If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.

Keep us updated.

When starting washer i get a code F11


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
In general for Kenmore (Whirlpool) washers 'F11' means 'communication error (control unit)' which sounds bad BUT can often be cured relatively easily. It can be caused by poor connections between the control unit, cables/plugs/sockets and other parts in the washer. The cure is to unplug and re-plug the cables/plugs/sockets such that the connections are cleaned by the act of doing it.
The down side is that it will probably require an engineer's visit, sorry ;-0(
Good luck,
John C
