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

Potential Causes

• Check Wire Harness connections 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

Replace failed component.

These are the manufacturers recommendations to its technical staff. Unless you know what you are doing it woukld be better to call in a service tech. Some parts may be faulty but not display any obvious outward signs and can only be checked by using a tester.
If its under warranty, then call in for a service, this is a common problem and sometimes caused by vibration upsetting the control board.

F11 appears to be a Serial Communication error (a digital signal problem between the motor, motor control unit, and the central control unit). Look for loose connectors on each of these items. The wiring harness may be at fault, or any of the above devices (sounds expensive). Good luck!

My washer stops &and F-20 appears on viewer. Whats wrong with my washer


water problem check screens in hoses and valves !! rrors F1, F11 and F20
  • Error F1 indicates a communication error between the computer and the washer. Unplug the washer for a minute and plug it back in, as this may correct the problem. Error F11 indicates a motor control error. It can be caused by improper voltage. Unplug the washer and check the connections. This may fix the problem. Error F20 indicates lack of water entering the machine. If there is no water in the washer, check that the water valves are turned on. If there is water in the washer, press "Stop" twice to drain the washer. Unplug the machine and check the hose connections.

Flashing F 11, drum spins by hand.unplugged for 30 sec and plugged back in started to fill then stopped .flashed F11 again


The F11 error can be difficult to resolve even for us technician's.

The F11 error occurs when the central control and motor control don't talk to each other.

If one of the controls was actually bad then I'd expect to see the error code every cycle. If it does, start by checking all the wiring connections from the panel to the CCU. Post back your results.

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.

Fault code F11 keeps appearing. The washer seems to be working but within seconds of starting to wash, F11 appears.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F11 is a communication error between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU). To start with check the wire harness connections between CCU and MCU, and then check the motor. If both of them appear to be working fine then it seems that the MCU of your washer has gone bad as the control unit seems to be working fine. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Washer worked fine early Sunday, then Sunday evening I was washing and kept getting this F11 error. It now has standing water inside of the washer and when I press the button to start the cycle the motor...


F11: Pump related. Pump not able to empty water correctly. More blockages to check for: something inside the pump stopping it or reducing it speed. Sump hose blocked between the outer drum and the pump. Outlet hose blocked between the machine and the U-BEND. The pump could also be weak, pumping too slowly, or intermittent.

Getting F11 code r8ght after starting,then flashes and stops


usually if this is a kenmore frontloader f11 is a communication error between the door lock and the ccu board. usually you'll hear a clicking sound before it fails. If so you need a central electric board. It is located directly under the top lid in the back. you can't miss it it's the only thing that has a lot of wires going to it.
