Whirlpool duet washer error code F11


The F11 code means that the CCU (central control board) and MCU (motor control board) aren't communicating properly. This can be caused by poor contacts between the wires in the wiring harness and one of the boards. Someone reported a simple fix of carefully adding solder to thicken the contact area on the board where the wiring harness plugs onto the board.

First unplug the washer. You need to check the wiring for any broken conductors. Try wiggling the wiring harness on both sides to see if that helps the connection stabilize. If wiggling works, then the solder solution may work. Warning: make sure to keep the new layer of solder directly on top of the previous contacts. If the solder spreads sideways, you can short the unit. Otherwise, the solution is to replace the CCU. If that doesn't solve the error, Whirlpool recommends replacing the MCU.

If you add the model number for your washer, I may be able to point you to the parts list. I hope this helps.

We have a whirlpool duet washer that flashes F11 and will not start, I made sure the door shuts tight and also tightened the plastic latch that was loose, still not responding, please advise what you think...


Hello,

The F11 error code means that the motor control unit& the central control unit aren't communicating with each other

It could be a loose wire connection between the MCU/CCU or either one could be defective

Whirlpool Duet washer GIVES ME f11 ERROR CODE


The F11 error code means that there is a communication error between the CCU (central control unit) and the MCU (Motor Control Unit) and it is not sending the message correctly. Check the wire harness connectors to the MCU and the CCU. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components. Check the MCU and the CCU and the motor. You may need a qualified repair technician for this one.

Whirlpool Duet Washer GHW9150PWO Have F11 and DL errors. Have replaced the door lock 2 x and still have same error messages.


Well du is a door lock error but it can also mean an error with communication to the main control board or ccu. f11 is also a communication error in either the ccu or the mcu ( motor control board)......easiest thing to try is to unplug all your connections to the ccu and plug them back in and try it again.....sometimes a wire harness just may be loose....if that dosent work I would look at replacing the ccu ( central control unit )
