F11 error is a serial communication error. Check all the wiring connections on the CCU and the MCU.

SOURCE: Kenmore HE5t F11 error, find part.

If the problem is, indeed, the Motor Control Unit, you can find this part at for about $243. Still a bit expensive, but far less than the $800 repair quote you got. Go to the website and search by part number. Use part number 8183196. I hope this helps you. If you require further assistance, please let me know.

    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.

    For Kenmore 7903019400 wall oven error code F 11, the touchpad/keyboard is the replacement part called the clock/timer? as clock/timer or range control panel are only parts listed? so which part is it

    F11 means a shorted button on the button board. This could actually be a shorted button, or it could be a bad connection to the embedded microprocessor. There is literally no way to tell without actually testing the unit. If the EOC module (electronic operator control) comes with a button pad, change them both out if you can't test them separately. Kenmore has other manufacturers make their equipment for them (frigidaire, whirlpool, electrolux, etc), so the generic equivalent board may be cheaper to buy somewhere else than sears. Your local appliance service center will know what parts fit what sears models. The model number you provided is useless to me. 25321842-21syibu3fgwpdxocjnkpw0ib-3-0.jpg

    F11 and beeping

    Unfortunately the f11 error means the clock is shorted. I have actually seen this issue several times on this unit. Its not your fault and theres nothing you did or could have done prevent this issue. You need to have the clock replaced to fix the error code. The clock on this model is the brains of the operations. Here is the part to order.
    There is also a video on that parts page to show you how to make the repair.

    All parts come with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

    Kenmore gas range F11 error code

    The "F11" fault code indicates a shorted button on the electronic oven control. This means the oven control board will likely need to be removed and replaced. You could disconnect power, wait 30 seconds and reapply power. If "F11" returns upon power-up, replace the electronic oven control board (EOC). but if i had your model number i could nail it right on the head with a fix...
