    What does the F11 error code on my Kenmore Elite He 3t mean?


    "F11" is a serial communications error. The following link explains the possible causes and how to troubleshoot:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r666194-f11_error_whirpool_duet_kenmore_elite

    First, attempt to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). In many cases, this is all that is required in order to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, follow the advice provided in the link. In the majority of the cases, I've experienced, it was the CCU that caused the problem.

    If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    Kenmore Elite H3 error code F11


    F11 is a serial communication error. It is recomended to check connections from the motor control unit to the ccu. We are looking for the blue wires that carry info from component to component. The ccu is on top under the cover positioned in back for older machines and front right for new machines. The mcu, motor control unit is behind the kick panel below the door and is front left usually.Again we want to unplug check for dark or crusty connections if not to carefully reseat the connection and not only the blue serial wires but power as well. Remember to first unplug the machine and while you work the machine can reset, 30 minutes is typical.

    Random electrical problems, sometimes it works beautifully, sometimes not!


    F11 = Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the
    Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
    .
    1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and
    Central Control Unit (CCU).
    3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
    4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any
    cycle.
    6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
    7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
    8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted
    upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the
    MCU connectors.

    It certainly does sound like the main control, this is the most common part (electronically speaking) also there is the display board(s) directly behind the control panel. This PC relays user inputs to CCU (located on top of washer ---middle rear). I havent replaced a faulty display board yet out of the 50+ ive serviced. Doesnt mean its not bad. If you have any questions feel free....

    random issues with bad solder joints on the boards ,
    open the top of unit , reseat all the connectors on the control unit.
    start washer ,
    , push up gently on the center black wired connectors . system should start and run fine as long as you hold it up. normal issue is that the solder connections to the relays need to be resoldered due to crack around the leads.causing random issues
