"F11" is a Serial Communications error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and Motor Control Unit (MCU). The CCU is the main computer for the washer and is located directly behind the wash tub. The MCU is the Drive Motor Control board and is located in the rear of the washer adjacent to the Drive Motor on the left-hand side (facing from the rear with the back panel removed). The wiring harness can also cause the error, but it is not as common a problem.

Whirlpool is the manufacturer of both model washers and recommends the following troubleshooting advice. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws holding it in place in the rear. Once the screws are removed, the panel slides back, then off. Remove the rear panel of the washer for access to the drive motor and MCU. Now check the following:

- Check the wire harness connections between the CCU, the MCU and Drive Motor. Make sure all connections are attached and making good contact. Check for any broken wires or connector pins.
- Check the Drive Motor to see if it free spins and that the belt is still attached and not slipping. If the motor is seized, replace it. If the belt is broken or worn, replace it as well.
- Check the MCU. Connector 1 is the Serial Communications Link between the MCU and CCU. Connector 2 is the connector to the drive motor. Resistance checks across pins 1, 2, & 3 are the motor windings. Connector 3 is the power supply - 120VAC should be read across pins 1 and 2 with the door in the locked position. NOTE: The connectors are read 1, 2, and 3 from the bottom to the top with the MCU installed.
- Check the CCU. Verify connectors 7 and 11 are properly installed. Facing from the front of the washer, connector 7 is the 4th connector from the RIGHT along the front. This is MCU Power. Connector 11 is the Serial Communications link from the CCU to the MCU and is located along the left hand side of the CCU (the connectors are numbered 11 through 14 back to front).
- Check the Drive Motor. Remove the connector and perform resistance checks on the motor connector pins. Readings across pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3 and 1 to 3 should read 6 ohms.

In most cases this is an indication of a failed CCU. This is an easy repair that the average do-it-yourselfer can accomplish on their own. If the washer is still under a warranty, parts and labor would be covered. With no warranty, a replacement parts will vary in price depending on where you get them. There are several good websites available that you can order parts on line and have shipped directly to you.


NOTE: Remove all the connectors from the CCU ONE AT A TIME and reconnect to see if the error code goes away BEFORE you decide to purchase a new one. It is not common, but sometimes a flaky connection can generate error codes.

Can you tell me what e6 on the display means as the machine wont work when this shows


Not sure of the make/model, but with Samsung washing machines that usually means 2 things. If you get it when entering the spin mode and the system stops and displays the code, the water heater is heating too quickly. Press the power button once to clear the code and finish the cycle before repair.

If you get the E6 during the spin cycle that can mean a problem with the main controller board.

You can keep resetting to get past that code but if you continue to get it during a spin cycle or part of the laundry where hot water isn't used, then usually that controller board is bad.

Good luck.

Hi,i have a samsung washing machine,p1253.model and i keep getting a code UE,and it appears not to be spinning.....please advise what this code means and is it possible to read an instruction manual on...


Hi, UE error means unbalanced load, loosen the washing and try again, if the load is to heavy take out some of the washing and spin in 2 lighter loads.

UE Happens if you overload the washing machine.

We keep getting the code OE on my MAH8700 washing machine. I have to keep resetting it. Any ideas what this means?


A fault is detected in the water sensor level. First check to see that the water valve is not stuck. If that looks good, check the water level sensor.

Hotpoint wt741 f11 what does this mean


Hotpoint Error Codes.



Hotpoint washing machines are among the most common found in the Uk and like any mechanical device they will occasionally breakdown or develop a fault and need repairs.
Being a very popular make means that most parts supplier will keep there parts in stock and because so many suppliers keep Hotpoint parts stock this also drives competition hence driving down the price of parts if you should ever need them

One problem many people including some engineers face when faced with a faulty Hotpoint washer is knowing what the error code mean, so here are a list of error codes and there meanings for Hotpoint washing machines

These error codes can some times have a E in front of the number and not a F as shown here, but the meaning of the code is still the same



# F11 - This means there is No hot fill.The ambient temperature is probably below freezing perhaps due to the plumbing becoming frozen. Also verify that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.
