The F11 indicates a Serial Communication ErrorCommunication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

Action:

Disconnect power and unplug unit. Check wire harness connections to the motor, Motor Control Unit (MCU), and Central Control Unit (CCU). Check the drive system for any worm or failed components and reconnect power and plug unit in. Verify CCU is working by performing diagnostic test or any cycle. Check MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor and check drive motor for powered rotations. Make sure the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the MCU connectors. Replace failed component

Mfw9700sq0 error code F11


It's a communication error.

Most of the time it's the motor control board (located inside cabinet, towards the bottom on the left), but it wouldn't hurt to check the wires going from the main board to the motor control board.

It's a Whirlpool part. Part number 8182706.

LE error after full cycle toward end of wash it comes up with an error. not sure if it LE or upside down F E? Anyone have this prob?


LE toward the end of cycle probably means you had a bulky load which you tried to spin out at the high spin speed setting. Use a low spin speed with bulky loads. For this load now, just put power on and without selecting a cycle, push the spin speed selector button until a low speed comes up (should be about a 14 minute display) then push start to do a pump and spin only cycle.
