Hello

Please see this weblink here for a ton of info on your problem.

F11 = Serial Communication Error. Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

Do this = Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components.

Please rate this post, if you are happy with my response. Respond back to this post if you need more help!

Kenmore Elite 5t shows an F30 code, water fill solenoid is making a noise like its not opening


This is a dispenser motor issue. If you pull the unit out and remove the 3 screws coming into the back of the top panel, you can remove the top panel to access the top of the dispenser. There is a motor that turns a plastic lever on the dispenser. you might be able to manually help the arm move to get past the error code, but ultimately you will need to replace the dispenser motor. Here is the part to order.

Hello Kimberley,
It appears that a part of your question is cut off so i may be off base here but what i am reading is that your washer will go through the wash cycle and drain the wash water then just quit?? is that what is happeningIf yes that is whats going on i think what is happening is that after the wash cycle it fills with only COLD WATER for the rinse cycle and its not filling with the rinse water and just sits their until the rinse cycle water is filled and if its not getting cold water into the washer its not going to do anything If it is filling with cold water my apologies my bad for misinterpreting what the question reads and i ask ya to re-ask it.

My kenmore elite He 5t wash machine is flashing F


This typically indicates slow drain condition. Check for any clogs or kinks in the drain line. Also check that the pump is not clogged and that no pump impeller blades are missing/broken and that the impeller moves freely. Any broken/missing blades or if the impeller won't turn freely will indicate a faulty pump. Hard objects can sometimes make it to the pump and cause damage. Hope this helped and best wishes.

F 11 code


The electronic control board is damaged. It needs to be replaced. I think its Part#8182237. As of this date, it is on back-order. Check your warranty book on this part, it is highly expensive. It may be covered under a 2-5 yr. part only warranty.

The inlet valve will need to be replaced. Its a fairly simple procedure and a pretty inexpensive part.
