Re: Kenmore HE 9t quiet pak

Sounds to me like the Main Computer has failed. F11 means it is not communicating with the Motor control Board. It has nothing to do with the door locks. Remove to lid of the machine to axcess Main control. Sometimes a tap or two on the board makes them work again for a short time. Leave unit powered down for a few mins to reset board.

We have a Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 Washer that we have had for 5 years. It has been flashing F11 and DL back and forth for months. We had a tech come out (not sure he knew what he was talking about) and...

The symptoms are pretty specific for the F11 code on the Whirlpool Duet front loaders and clones (Kenmore Elite and KitchenAid):

If the washer starts to fill but the drum NEVER moves, your MCU is bad

If the washer runs through most of a cycle and then gives the F11 before (or during) a rinse or spin cycle, then you have the CCU relay problem.

If you are interested in having me repair your CCU for you, I offer that service on eBay (website coming soon). My username there is "jhagner"

Door won't open

the lock switch is probably stuck. make sure machine is off but plugged in still. Push in on the door while gently giving a couple of thumps around the lock area and the lock will probably "click" open.

With the front door open, see if you can rotate the basket freely.  If not, most likely the bearing of the rear tub is worn out.  You will have to replace the whole rear tub which is about $300 for the part.  I am having the same issue with my Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 2.  I'm contemplating with just buy a new top-load washer.
