This code indicates a serial communication error, meaning communication between the central control unit (ccu) and the motor control unit (mcu) cannot be sent correctly. Check the wiring harness connections at the CCU and the MCU. Unplug and reseat and make sure there is no corrosion. It can also indicate a problem with the door lock relay on the control board, a faulty hall sensor, or the mcu or ccu themselves. I think that I'd recommend getting an appliance tech to take a look at it, but try the unplug/reseat electrical connections fix first. Very sorry for your trouble. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dr error message


Hello Herb Reinhart - If the range previously displayed DR and now showing F11, it typically indicates that the unit has detected a shorted keypad. Since you have already try resetting the unit by unplugging it and issue persists, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further. Most likely the EOC on the range will need replacing.

The F11 error code is a communication failure between the 2 control boards. This includes both boards & the wiring harness as potential defective components. However, this is usually the main machine control board that needs replaced.

Washing machine door sensor


I must differ with you. This machine does have a computer control card located within the timer base assy. Thee 5 beeps are a response from the computer that informs of a faulty signal between the computer and the door sensor
