"F11" is a Serial Communications error. In a nut shell, the Central Control Unit (CCU) isn't communicating properly with one or more components. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r666194-f11_error_whirpool_duet_kenmore_elite

This problem can be attributed to wiring, a bad connector plug, or the CCU itself has failed. You can attempt to reset the CCU by unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes. Sometimes these error codes are erroneous and a reset will correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears following a reset, you have a problem. Please read through the link provided. If you still require assistance, please let me know.

If you're looking for technical data about the error code, there is a tech sheet affixed to the interior cabinet wall behind the lower panel under the door. There are three torx screws under the front edge of the panel that you will need to remove. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down then off.

If you are looking for a User's Manual that explains the operation of the washer, you can go to Managemyhome.com and register (this is a FREE service). Once registered, look under the "Home Managers" heading and click on the "Owner's Manuals" link. Follow the instructions on the next page and your owner's manual will be available in a downloadable .pdf format.

If you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Washer keeps flashing f 11 and wont tumble


STOP the insanity....that's what you're saying if you encounter the F11 and/or fDL error codes on your washer. If you're not there yet, you will be soon....
The dreaded F11 and/or fDL codes - been there done ALL that!! Our Whirlpool DUET washer is just over 5 years. We experienced our first F11 code 6 months ago (warranty just expired what else is new?). When it first happened, I thought nothing of it - hit the cancel button and the machine reset itself. Then it happened again and again and again. Each time it happened it was more challenging to reset it. I searched for the fix on line - I should have done my research before we purchased the washer.
I was able to determine the error was stemming from the CCU board. Order a new one at over $300.00 and have the same thing happen again - I don't think so. We tried EVERYTHING suggested on multiple websites.....unplugging the washer, hitting the right upper side, checking wires, wiggling the wires, wedging things to improve contacts, soldering, re-soldering, Vaseline, changed relays....anything and everything was a temporary fix. Contact Whirlpool directly? Tried that too, they apparently don't recognize there is an issue with F11 fDL errors, "not a commonly called in concern". Really?? We started searching washers to purchase....I couldn't bare spending $$$ for another washer, but we are a busy active family with 4 kids - what are our options? Then one night after searching the websites for one last desperate attempt at salvaging our washer, I followed through on a link:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Whirlpool-Duet-Kenmore-HE3T-CCU-Repair-For-F11-FDL-Code_W0QQitemZ230397337074QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item35a4c05df2

email: selling.surplus@gmail.com

Now, I'm the biggest sceptic in the world and the most frugal consumer - really I am. I am posting my testament to this service because I've been there - frustrated, disappointed, angry. I am so pleased with the service Ed provided - from answering all my questions, to the superb job he did on the CCU. You can review all the comments posted by all his other pleased customers on eBay. I had to stand by my washer for the first 6 loads - just in case the beep beep beeps started. To my astonishment, amazement, and surprise - it never happened!! In my opinion, this is the only true fix for your F11/Fdl error!!
I never imagined in my wildest dreams ever telling anyone how happy I am to be doing my laundry again, but I really am!!

Machine not workin prop


Error F11 can mean one of 2 things depending upon which model washer you have, you do not state which one you have, however , it can mean there is no hot water entering washer, or the pump cannot be activated for one reason or another.
So , you will have to check both these functions.
Trust this helps with your problem.
Please leave a rating for my comments.
Thankyou.

The motor does not engage in at all


The F 11 code is a water fill code. Check the water to make sure both lines are on. If their on then turn off take hoses off the water inlet valves in the back and check the screens. If your screens are clean then you probably have a water inlet valve problem. Are you able to open the door to get your clothes out? If not I can tell you how to get it open.

f-11 is a motor control unit error.

These codes and more details are printed on the service technician diagnostic manual that is affixed to the inside of the washer's front panel.

Unplug your washer, and unscrew the three 1/4" socket screws at the bottom of the washer. The manual should be taped to the back of the panel, and the code and some recommended procedures will be right inside.
