    error F11

  • mmarsh0429 Mar 03, 2009

    I am having the same problem periodicly with my Duet front load GHW9400PWO. The washer will be working fine, and suddenly in the middle of a cycle, it "stops", "beeps", then "F11" displays on the screen. Occasionally, I can push "stop", then "start", and it will start up where it left off and finish the cycle no problem. Other times, it just continues to repeat the "stop, beep, display F11" cycle; it's like it "locks up"; I can't even get it to abort the cycle and have the door unlock. Very frustrating. Nothing in the owner's manual addresses the code or it's meaning, other than "F" variables (F4 to F16) (electrical problem).

    Be careful with this F-11 issue. I just had a repair man come out to look at our problem, and the machine's diagnostic feature revealed nothing. He checked with the manufacturer that told him that 85% of the time this is caused by the motor control unit (MCU). So with a bum machine and such good odds, we went with the repair - big mistake. We are out hundreds of dollars and still have the problem. Even if they come out and replace another part, the cost is heading towards the price of a new machine (any other brand though) so we are unlikely to pursue fixing it. We will probably use it until the F11 gets me frustrated enough to toss it out the back door. Good luck with your problem.

F-11 is communication error between the Motor control unit and the Main CCU. Either of these or both could be bad. Sometimes unplugging all the connections from the CCU (under top panel) and plugging them back in will fix the problem. If fixed, there's a bad connection at the CCU.

Hi! i had the same f11 code on my whirlpool duet and i fixed the problem by taking a q-tip and a little rubbing alcohol to the connection point where the door latch closes into the washer. (I cleaned both the washer side...you have to extend the q-tip inside until it hits the plastic part, and the actual latch) Mine was full of dark muck! I first used a damp q-tip and moistened the area really well then i used several dry ones and just kept wiping until the area was clean. I used rubbing alcohol and not water because it evaporates quick. Like magic the washer is back to working great! Hope this helps!

    Frigidaire model number FEFL79DSB showing a F11 code on the control panel. Oven will not turn on and I am getting a alarm.


    I appreciate your post, Dale Miller!
    From what you have described your Frigidaire range is displaying an error code of "F11" and you are receiving an alarm. Normally an "F11" error code stands for a shorted keypad. I would suggest performing a reset and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If you restore power and continue to receive an "F11" error code you may need to replace your control panel. I would recommend having a professional do so, they will be able to properly disassemble your range and accurately replace the electrical component to not damage anything internally on your range. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

    F11 error code


    I appreciate the post, dan moore!

    From the information you have provided your Frigidaire range is displaying an "F11" error code. Typically, the "F11" error code stands for a shorted keypad. This could be a false error code and the best way to clear any false error codes is to disconnect power from the range for at least ten minutes. If you continue to get an "F11" error code you may need to replace your EOC (Electronic Oven Control), I would recommend having a professional technician come out to properly replace any electrical component to avoid personal injury. Hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

    HOW DO I GET TOO THE TROUBLE SHOOTING PAGE FOR A OVEN


    Hello friend, thank you for your post!

    I understand that you need troubleshooting steps for an "F11" error code. "F11" stands for a shorted keypad and one step for troubleshooting is to reset your range. You can reset your range by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If that does not help correct the "F11" code I would recommend you reach out to a professional for proper diagnosis because it could an issue with your EOC (Electronic Oven Control) or wiring harness. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

    I get a F11 code with beeping noise and the oven controls won't work? what can i do?


    Hi Ken Kazemi - Typically error code F11 indicates a shorted keypad. Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually will clear most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately. Most likely the EOC on the range will need replacing.

    We are getting code F11. What does that mean?


    Hello. the F11 trouble code means Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
    These are circuit boards within the machine and one of them will have to be replaced. Most folks leave this job up to the service technicians.

    Error code F11


    Not sure what machine you have?

    F11 Error Code for Whirlpool Duet & Duet HT :

    F11 is Serial Communication Error, communication between the central control and the motor control unit cannot be sent correctly.

    Check all connectors at the motor control and the Main control, check the motor, check drive system for any worn or failed components.

    This is the only F11 Error code I could find for a washer.

    F DL Error Code


    If you were already experiencing the F11 error code and now experiencing the Fdl error, this more than likely is a failure of the Main Control Board. F11 is a serial communications error associated with the Main Control Board, while the Fdl error is either a failed Main Control Board and/or door latch. You can replace the door latch first to see if the error goes away, but I would almost bet you have a control board problem since you were already experiencing an intermittent error code associated to it. Let me know if you have any further questions.
