The F11 error indicates a communications error between the CCU (Central Control Unit) and the MCU (Motor Control Unit). Check the wiring harness and connections at both the CCU and MCU. Unplug them and check for corrosion on the terminals / pins, clean them if necessary then reconnect them securely. As there is a D11 error as well it indicates a problem with the door lock relay, faulty hall sensor, faulty CCU or faulty MCU. If you still have the problem then call in a repair man to fix it.

Washer stops and F11 code flashes


An F11 is a communication failure between the machines control board and the motor controller. Often you will also experience a 'DL' error associated with the F11 because when the washer fails, the door is still locked and when you restart the wash, the electronics will try and lock an already locked door. Either the control board or motor controller can cause this error along with a bad harness or loose connector, but the majority of the time it is the main control that is failing.

What do the codes : F, F11, and Fdl mean when flashing on my whirlpool front load washer?

There are five down para-wise You may find some very useful:

I had same error code F11 and DL.....I sprayed the door lock (inside) with WD40......so far works OK

I had the same F11/DL problem. I tighten the two screws on the door latch and it's working great. for now

Just some part numbers to help if you need to order parts. For the GHW9200LWO Washer (Sanitary Cycle Model)- the part number for the CCU (Microcomputer or main computer) is 8181924. The part number for the Motor Control Unit (MCU) is 8182706. I did a search for the part numbers and found the CCU for $79.90 shipping included - the same part from Whirlpool was $190 plus with shipping included. I put the CCU on and my washer works perfectly again. Hope this helps someone since I had such a hard time finding out the correct part numbers. Whirlpool first sent me the MCU even though I specifically told them it was not that part but the CCU.

DL is a door lock error. This is usually an indication of a bad door latch. F11 is a serial communications error from the Central Control Unit CCU (which is your main computer). If the door latch is defective it could be generating the communications error code as well. A defective CCU can also give the same symptoms, though. Before replacing any parts, however, double check all you connections to make sure you don't have any loose wires. The least expensive of the two possible solutions would be to replace the door latch (about $50). The CCU can run between $150 and $250. Hope this leads you in the right direction.

I wanna thank all of you for your input. I had the "DL F-11" code also. My washer would run 12 minutes and then stop with the annoying beep and error codes. After learning that the "DL" was the door lock, I decided to order the part online for 50 bucks. After I placed the order I decided to take this $50 thing apart and give it a look-see. (Boys like to tear things apart!)
There is a solenoid inside that actuates the lock. My finding was that there was some hardened goo that seeped out of the solenoid. It didn't look good! I believe this to have caused an electrical imbalance that the computer didn't like, thus sending it into error mode.
Removal and installation was a snap. First I took the top off. Then to make room for my arm to get to the door-lock, I pushed the drum all the way back and held it in place by wedging a shoe in the front end. Then I pushed the drum to the side, opposite the door-lock, and wedged it with another shoe. This gave me plenty of room to reach the door-lock. Unplug the three connectors and remove the three screws from the front side of the door-lock. (Inside door at 2:00.)
Reverse order for the install!
Thanks again for your posts which led me in the right direction!

Hi

Error F11 means Serial Communication Error i.e. communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly. You need to:
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
  • Check MCU
  • Check CCU
  • Check Motor
  • Check Wire Harness

  • Error code dl is a Door Lock Error. A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error. You need to check:
  • Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
  • Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
  • Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

    Power off the wall, check to see if the connections to the door lock are tight. Or

    Try some WD40 on the door mechanism of machine (not door) & open shut a few times; with the mains off the wall.

    F DL Error Code


    If you were already experiencing the F11 error code and now experiencing the Fdl error, this more than likely is a failure of the Main Control Board. F11 is a serial communications error associated with the Main Control Board, while the Fdl error is either a failed Main Control Board and/or door latch. You can replace the door latch first to see if the error goes away, but I would almost bet you have a control board problem since you were already experiencing an intermittent error code associated to it. Let me know if you have any further questions.
