Re: Whirlpool AWM8143 help please! F11 coming up on...
Ther's a water level contol system on these. a plastic 'water holder' is a push fit into the outer drum (at the front,& difficult to get to - undo screws underneath and open the front like a door, without putting too much strain on the door seal) a flexible black pipe or tube is connected onto this water holder and goes up to a electronic control with adjustment screws on the r/h side ,front top. FIrst check the water holder isn't blocked with old washing powder by pulling straight out of the outer tub (its a push fit)& blowing through it..
Second do the same with the black tube.
Third make half turn adjustments to the electronic water level sensor - just pull it away from it's snap fit mounting and you'll see 3 adjusting screws -your choice but usually the lower one.-hey presto

Hi, "FH" is a No Water Detect error.It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. Check whether the water taps are turned on sufficiently, the inlet hoses are not kinked, the water inlet valve is not clogged, you don't have a siphoning issue, and/or the drain pump is working. Thank you !!
hi, looks like there is some friction between the main and outer tub of your machine. there is generally a mechanism for smooth spinning of the machine in good rpms for wash-spin cycle. this could be because of rust formation, or mud collection. please refer your manual and remove the 3 screws behind the lower front plastic cover, and look for rust formation. scrape the rust and try spinning again.
F-11 like a Kenmore means communication error between the motor control and the main control. Check connections, unplug and replug computer connections and see if problem persists. I've seen cases where either board or even both can be bad.
Starting to see these fault codes pop up in these otherwise fine machines. The F/11 code
is just a generic code generated when there’s a communications error
between the two main control boards in the washer. These two boards are
the motor control unit(MCU) and the central control unit(CCU).
A common problem is the wiring harness jiggling loose; remove and
reseat it and that usually fixes it. If not, then you’re looking at
spending some money on control boards. Yes, I said boards, plural. The
really sucky part is that there’s no way to definitively and
conclusively prove which board, the MCU or the CCU, is at fault so,
unfortunately, that only leaves the parts changing monkey method: replace both boards,
But, on a brighter note, the electronics are covered under warranty
for 24 months. If your machine is older that this, then you’ll need to
shell out some shekels
FA is the emergency shutoff switch that detects when water is pooling underneath the machine -> a leak. "Check float switch under machine, empty any water from catchment tray, check for water leaks or oversudsing".
