The F11 code is just a generic code generated when there is 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 reset it and that
usually fixes it.

There is a business on ebay that will fix it for you for less than $100, I think around $80. If they can't fix it, they ship it back to you and give your money back. 100% feedback and about 100 people helped so far, prob worth a try.

Hello. the F11 trouble code means Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.
These are circuit boards within the machine and one of them will have to be replaced. Most folks leave this job up to the service technicians.

SOURCE: code f11

"F11" is a Serial Communications error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and Motor Control Unit (MCU). The CCU is the main computer for the washer and is located directly behind the wash tub. The MCU is the Drive Motor Control board and is located in the rear of the washer adjacent to the Drive Motor on the left-hand side (facing from the rear with the back panel removed). The wiring harness can also cause the error, but it is not as common a problem.

Whirlpool is the manufacturer of both model washers and recommends the following troubleshooting advice. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws holding it in place in the rear. Once the screws are removed, the panel slides back, then off. Remove the rear panel of the washer for access to the drive motor and MCU. Now check the following:

- Check the wire harness connections between the CCU, the MCU and Drive Motor. Make sure all connections are attached and making good contact. Check for any broken wires or connector pins.
- Check the Drive Motor to see if it free spins and that the belt is still attached and not slipping. If the motor is seized, replace it. If the belt is broken or worn, replace it as well.
- Check the MCU. Connector 1 is the Serial Communications Link between the MCU and CCU. Connector 2 is the connector to the drive motor. Resistance checks across pins 1, 2, & 3 are the motor windings. Connector 3 is the power supply - 120VAC should be read across pins 1 and 2 with the door in the locked position. NOTE: The connectors are read 1, 2, and 3 from the bottom to the top with the MCU installed.
- Check the CCU. Verify connectors 7 and 11 are properly installed. Facing from the front of the washer, connector 7 is the 4th connector from the RIGHT along the front. This is MCU Power. Connector 11 is the Serial Communications link from the CCU to the MCU and is located along the left hand side of the CCU (the connectors are numbered 11 through 14 back to front).
- Check the Drive Motor. Remove the connector and perform resistance checks on the motor connector pins. Readings across pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3 and 1 to 3 should read 6 ohms.

In most cases this is an indication of a failed CCU. This is an easy repair that the average do-it-yourselfer can accomplish on their own. If the washer is still under a warranty, parts and labor would be covered. With no warranty, a replacement parts will vary in price depending on where you get them. There are several good websites available that you can order parts on line and have shipped directly to you.


NOTE: Remove all the connectors from the CCU ONE AT A TIME and reconnect to see if the error code goes away BEFORE you decide to purchase a new one. It is not common, but sometimes a flaky connection can generate error codes.

SOURCE: What does F11 code mean?

F11 is a code that referes to communication error between the central control unit and the motor control unit. Disconnect power. Check wire harness connections to motor and control board. Check drive belt, visually inspect to see if belt is broke. Check drive motor, visually confirm motor operation. It is possible that if the belt broke it may have slung around in the cabinet and damaged or loosened the wire harness connection at the motor. Try unplugging wire harness at motor and then plug it back in securely. Hope this info has helped. Thanks, Tim.

    Kenmore gas range F11 error code


    The "F11" fault code indicates a shorted button on the electronic oven control. This means the oven control board will likely need to be removed and replaced. You could disconnect power, wait 30 seconds and reapply power. If "F11" returns upon power-up, replace the electronic oven control board (EOC). but if i had your model number i could nail it right on the head with a fix...

    F11 error code


    The F11 code means there is an electrical with the Maytag Epic washer. This could involve wiring, fuses or a number of other issues.

    Press the "Pause" button twice to stop the current cycle. Press the "Drain" button to remove any excess water. Try to run the washer again. If the F11 code repeats, shut the washer off and contact a service agent
    .
    The FH error code may be mistaken for the F11 code. The FH code signals a water supply issue and has nothing to do with electrical problems. Check the LCD screen to ensure you read the proper code

    What does F11 mean?


    F11 means that the circuit board at the top of the machine (CCU) is not communicating with the circuit board at the bottom of the machine (MCU). If you're getting an F11 code you may also get a FdL code (communication from the door lock to the CCU), in either case the problem is with poor quality control by whirlpool. On the CCU board there are what's called cold solder joints at the point where the relays and spade connectors connect to the circuit board. You'll need to remove the board and have those solder joints touched-up. You may break some plastic tabs removing the circuit board, that's because whirlpool used the cheapest plastic they could find. If you can't do the job yourself, take the board along with this response to a good appliance repair place. Good luck.

    Hotpoint wt741 f11 what does this mean


    Hotpoint Error Codes.



    Hotpoint washing machines are among the most common found in the Uk and like any mechanical device they will occasionally breakdown or develop a fault and need repairs.
    Being a very popular make means that most parts supplier will keep there parts in stock and because so many suppliers keep Hotpoint parts stock this also drives competition hence driving down the price of parts if you should ever need them

    One problem many people including some engineers face when faced with a faulty Hotpoint washer is knowing what the error code mean, so here are a list of error codes and there meanings for Hotpoint washing machines

    These error codes can some times have a E in front of the number and not a F as shown here, but the meaning of the code is still the same



    # F11 - This means there is No hot fill.The ambient temperature is probably below freezing perhaps due to the plumbing becoming frozen. Also verify that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.

    Could you tell me what F11 code means?


    F11 error code means there is a problem with the Control panel. Could be melted wiring, etc, since you left the oven standing. However, you can try unplugging the device from the power socket for about 5 minutes and reconnect. If the error goes away, then well and good; if not, you may have to replace the panel control.
