Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
The machine works fine until it reaches the spin cycle where it starts beeping and will not run for multiple times during the last 4 minutes. The display shows an F11 code. The solution is to press pause then start, typically though it requires this to be done a few times before it restarts, Does anyone know the cause of this problem and what needs to be repaired to get it fixed? Thanks.
The F11 code is caused by either a CCU failure or an MCU failure...here's how to tell:
If your machine starts a cycle and the water fills but the drum NEVER turns, your MCU is bad...it's most cost effective to buy a refurbished one and you can get them on eBay for $99 all day long.
If your machine makes it most of the way through a cycle but throws an F11 code during the rinse or spin, your CCU has the relay solder / vibration problem...and I can fix that for $65.

This is caused by a communication error between the boards. Most often times the trouble lies in the connections at the motor control board, but any poor connection may result in this area. Remove all connectors, one at a time, and replace.
