STOP the insanity....that's what you're saying if you encounter the F11 and/or fDL error codes on your washer. If you're not there yet, you will be soon....
The dreaded F11 and/or fDL codes - been there done ALL that!! Our Whirlpool DUET washer is just over 5 years. We experienced our first F11 code 6 months ago (warranty just expired what else is new?). When it first happened, I thought nothing of it - hit the cancel button and the machine reset itself. Then it happened again and again and again. Each time it happened it was more challenging to reset it. I searched for the fix on line - I should have done my research before we purchased the washer.
I was able to determine the error was stemming from the CCU board. Order a new one at over $300.00 and have the same thing happen again - I don't think so. We tried EVERYTHING suggested on multiple websites.....unplugging the washer, hitting the right upper side, checking wires, wiggling the wires, wedging things to improve contacts, soldering, re-soldering, Vaseline, changed relays....anything and everything was a temporary fix. Contact Whirlpool directly? Tried that too, they apparently don't recognize there is an issue with F11 fDL errors, "not a commonly called in concern". Really?? We started searching washers to purchase....I couldn't bare spending $$$ for another washer, but we are a busy active family with 4 kids - what are our options? Then one night after searching the websites for one last desperate attempt at salvaging our washer, I followed through on a link:

email: selling.surplus@gmail.com

Now, I'm the biggest sceptic in the world and the most frugal consumer - really I am. I am posting my testament to this service because I've been there - frustrated, disappointed, angry. I am so pleased with the service Ed provided - from answering all my questions, to the superb job he did on the CCU. You can review all the comments posted by all his other pleased customers on eBay. I had to stand by my washer for the first 6 loads - just in case the beep beep beeps started. To my astonishment, amazement, and surprise - it never happened!! In my opinion, this is the only true fix for your F11/Fdl error!!
I never imagined in my wildest dreams ever telling anyone how happy I am to be doing my laundry again, but I really am!!

Electrolux EWX 14440 W Washer will not start


This sounds like what I am having. Machine tumbles but does not rinse. Some postings say this is the door lock problem. Google "Fridigdaire washer will not Spin" and page down to read solutions.

My door does not lock and my washer fills but will not pass tumble cycle, it will not rinse or spin, it eventually just shuts off while still in tumble cycle.


you have a door lock issue
open the control panel
inspect your machine control board
your looking for obvious burnning
look on the lower middle to left
thats the r-11 resistor
you will need a new
MACHINE CONTROL BOARD
and
WAX MOTOR LOCK

the board runs like 190
\ the wax motor aroun 25
it is a pretty easy repair i could talk you through it

Broken Hotpoint tumble dryer


If it is a stand alone dryer, and not a washer dryer, then F11 means that the pump is not working.
This can be due to one of several reasons,
First and foremost of course is that the pump itself is faulty,if it is o/k, then I advise you to call an engineer to sort it out, as it could be involved.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

All the lights keep flashing


could be a heating element fault?  normally when washers tumble forever they are waiting to warm up?

check for open circuit electrically, normally a fairly low cost repair
