Plug off the wall. Shaking & vibration of your washer causes circuit board connections to become loose; due to faulty manufacture. Remove the 3 or 4 screws from the back & take off the top cover to secure the connections, make sure they are tight. This applies for the F11 & F dl codes. Works for certain machines, dont see why it wont for yours.

Outlook Express 6 - Address book failed to load


The WAB file may have become damaged or corrupted causing one or both of the above error messages. You will need to rename the existing .wab file and restart Outlook Express(OE). Once started, OE will create a new .WAB file. Microsoft does not recommend that you import the data from the old, damaged .wab file. If you do, you may import the damage into the new .wab file.
1. Click Start, point to Find (Search on Windows 2000 or newer operating systems), and click For Files or Folders.
2. In Search for files or folders named, type. *.wab and click Search Now.
3. In the Search results window, Right-click the file(s) with an extension of ".wab" and then click Rename.
4. Rename the file extension (the three left-most characters in the name) to "old" and press ENTER.
If you are still experiencing the issue after applying this fix you can try Address Book Recovery http://www.oemailrecovery.com/address-book-recovery.html

After 2 minutes does the machine throw up an error code. Starts beeping and shows a weird pattern of lights?
If so that error code can help us diagnose what your problem is.
If it does give you an error code take a photo and post it back on here so I can see what it is.

Softener does not dispense and we get a code F 30


This error code F30 flashes when the central control unit (CCU) cannot drive the dispenser motor to the proper dispensing position and hence the softener dispensing problem. Disconnect power then remove the top panel and check the dispenser motor assembly for damage or broken parts. You may run a diagnostic test then take a look at the dispenser motor and observe how it behaves. Replace the dispenser motor assembly if damaged.

Stops on spin cycle and gives a f11 error code


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 Cancel, 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.

My Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 washer will start and everytime it at the exact time it will stop and give an f-11 error message. The drum will not spin.


"F11" is a Serial Communications error. This is a failure in communications between the Central Control Unit (CCU), Motor Control Unit (MCU) and Drive Motor. The following link explains how to troubleshoot:

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

Now...some of these error codes can be erroneous. You may try unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes, first, in an attempt to reset the CCU. Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears following a CCU reset, then you have a legitimate problem. I would recommend you start by making sure all the wires are plugged in properly and making good contact. A good majority of these problems can be caused by connectors coming loose due to vibration.

If you have any questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool Calypso stops at 26 minutes and throws ob code


The OB indicates and out of balance condition has been detected by the motor control. You say this happens when the washer is empty also. One thing about the OB error is that the lid must be opened to clear the error and allow the washer to advance to the next part of the cycle. If the lid is not opened to adjust the clothes then the OB error will happen again.

If the OB error was cleared and the OB occurs with an empty load then the motor control has failed.

The drain pump must work. The image below shows how to run a diagnostic test to check the drain pump. Follow the instructions in the image below and check the drain pump operation. If the pump runs and the water does not drain then the sump is clogged. If the pump hums but does not run then the pump needs to be replaced.

Door locked/ cycle won't complete


If you need to get the washer door open, there is a manual release lever that you can use. The following links explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r622155-kenmore_elite_whirlpool_duet_door_jammed

Now, with your clothes rescued, the next link explains the "F11" error:

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

I know it seems like a lot with the second link. In most cases I have found, the CCU is the cause of the F11 error code, but read through the information carefully and doublecheck everything. It can be replaced if you wish to perform the repair yourself. I hope this helps you.

My whirlpool duet is giving me a dl error or F11. The door will not unlock and my clothes are stuck in the washer.


F11 is a communications error between the main control board and the motor control board. You can first try to unplug the washer for a few minutes. Plug it back in and see if it will reset. If not one of the two control boards may be bad. Another thing you can try is to unplug all the wiring harnesses on both boards and plug them back in. It could just be a loose harness. The main control board is under the top panel in the back. The motor control board is behind the bottom panel on the left.
