Re: FAULT CODE F11
F-11 like a Kenmore means communication error between the motor control and the main control. Check connections, unplug and replug computer connections and see if problem persists. I've seen cases where either board or even both can be bad.

In your service manual it states for the f11 code F/11Serial Communication Error Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly. Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)Check the Drive system for any worn or failed componentsCheck MCUCheck CCUCheck MotorCheck Wire Harness
If you have any further questions message me back I await your reply Thanks again Rick
As you said in the question you are washing machine need to get services during rinse washing machines should spin.Try selecting only rinse option only.If it does not spin means just services it will be fine.Thanks for you are question.
Hi, The F11 fault is actually described in the tech sheet as a "Serial
Communication Fault" involving the MCU (the washers computer) and the
DC Drive assembly that runs the motor. If you are not familiar with a
DC drive, it is simply a controller for the motor that varies the
voltage to the motor to change speeds. This is so the washer can crawl
slowly to tumble your clothes as well as spin at the ridiculously high
speeds using the same motor. I would argue that "Jay's" is wrong about
the door latch - there is a different specific code for that
malfunction (I think it flashes F and DL). I wish it was the door lock
- that's cheap, unfortunately, I think you are in for a MCU @ ~$200.
Removed the top cover of the machine and cleared out the hoses and the plastci chamber, which was full of limescale which had built up and also unscrewed the front outlet cover, again that had become clogged up with alsorts debris. Now it works a treat.
The door will never open unless the timer is in the off position. Sometimes there is an additional time delay before it will release. If someone tried to force the door they probably bent the latch release. It needs to be replaced.
