    F11 appeared after 11 minutes of wash cycle.

    1)Cleared screen by pushing cancel twice.

    2)Unplugged washer for 10 min. plugged back in and pushed "drain and spin". F11 code reappeared.

    3)Removed all hoses to water pump and removed light debris from water pump.(childs toy)

    4)Re-attached hoses and pressed "rinse and spin". F11 reappeared.

    Machine will not spin or pump water out at all.

    Is it just the water pump or should the drum spin, rotate or move at all in any of the cycles? I have tried all cycles and drum will not move at all.

    Belt is intact and in good shape.

    Drum can spin freely by hand.

    I would appreciate any help!

    We have the same problem with the F11 error code. Our washer seems to work until it gets to the rinse and or the drain and spin cycle.

    If anyone has a suggestion, we have looked in the manual and can't seem to find anything.

    I have the same problem: the washer begins the cycle for about 10 seconds and then stops, beeps, and displays F11. The manual just says "electrical problem" and to call for service. Does anyone know something I can try before doing that?

Machine wont stop washing on programme 9! went for days. Had the error lights flashing but that stopped.

If you select a rinse and spin programme and it completes the cycle, then I would say that the heater element is probably faulty, because the programme will not advance until the water has reached the correct temperature.
If it does not complete the rinse and spin cycle, then it is likely to be the control module that is the problem.

A 40 degree cotton wash takes around 3 hours to complete cycle, manual states 90 minutes, any ideas ?

It is possible the heater element is not working, you need a meter to test it with, and make sure you have selected the correct programm for what you are washing as some programmes can take up to 3 hours to complete.
Hope this helps.

Washing machine is stuck on the washing cycle and wont switch on to the rinse cycle

Does the machine drain out and do a spin cycle?

If it does then the Programmer is shot, it should impulse on by itself at that point but if the pump is not running it will sit there waiting to fill with clean water

Zanussi washing machine wont spin

check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.

Indesit Washing Machine not proceedding with the cycle programme after filling with water.

Cant understand how the machine will revolve on the 'spin cycle' & yet you can hear the motor on the 'wash cycle' but yet it doesnt revolve!!
Nomally if the water fills, & the tub revolves without the programmer advancing, its because the heater is not working. ie faulty thermostat, heat element, or maybe a wire burned off in the 'heater circuit'. Check if you have 240 volts at both ends of the heat element, with a meter or 240 volt bulb
                         !! BE CAREFUL OF 240VOLTS!!
