REplace your MCU. 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. Go onto kenmore.com and find your right washing machine and replace the part yourself. First try and take the wiring harness off and then reconnect it and see if the error code goes away if it doesnt then replace the part. Please Rate. Thank you

F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the main
board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This
could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The
testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test
mode and see if the error clears. Press Cancell, then by pressing the
drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed
button the the right. Press this button until no-spin lights. Press the
prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display. Let it run
it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08. If this doesn't
work, it's best you wait for the service tech.
while F09 is the water pump. It usually means something is clogging it. Take the front cover off of the washer and the water pump is located right in the middle front. Unscrew the cover to the pump and make sure there is nothing clogging it.

A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code.

Here is what the manufacture says about F02 - Below this are my comments
If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are
turned off and “F/02” is flashed.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display.
NOTE: After four minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed,
then four minutes later the “F/02” error code will be
Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make
sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.
If you washed a rug with a rubber backing or small articles like baby socks you may have a plugged up pump. To access the pump lay on the floor and remove the 3 screws holding the lower panel of washer on. Pull down and out on the panel to remove. Lay out a lot of towels under the unit, I mean a lot... Look in the center for a white cap about the diameter of a large cup, it will have a handle on it to turn, turn this left(counter clockwise) to unscrew. This will unscrew and pull out, but be careful when it comes out so does all the water. Clean out the trap that is in your hand and anything you see or feel in the sump area the trap came from. Reassemble and test. If this does not work you will more than likely need a new drain pump, that is the component on the right of that trap you just cleaned out.
