Elite he 3t front loader. Why does it leak water at beginning of rinse and spin cycle only?


Is it leaking from the tray top left corner? Mine was because it was not level. IT was level left to right but not front to back. The front was lower than the back. Raised both front feet, no more leaking.

The symptoms are pretty specific for the F11 code on the Whirlpool Duet front loaders and clones (Kenmore Elite and KitchenAid):

If the washer starts to fill but the drum NEVER moves, your MCU is bad

If the washer runs through most of a cycle and then gives the F11 before (or during) a rinse or spin cycle, then you have the CCU relay problem.

If you are interested in having me repair your CCU for you, I offer that service on eBay (website coming soon). My username there is "jhagner"

Thanks

I have a kenmore elite he3 front loader washer. it gives me a f11 code when i attempt to wash a load.


F/11 is serial communication error code. It means the communication between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU) is not good. Possible causes include worn or failed drive system components, faulty CCU or MCU, broken wiring harness, faulty drive motor, or faulty wiring harness connections in the CCU, the motor, or the MCU.

I have a Kenmore Front Load Washing machine and I am getting an error message f-35. what does that mean? It is an HE 3T Steam. Once I get this error code, the unit stops and unlocks.


This washer seems to have multiple solutions for the f35 error,
Unplug the machine for an hour to reset the computer

Clean the filter The panel below the door has 3 screws (mine was a star shaped screw). The white cap screws off. yopu may have to cancell the error using "stop".

Kenmore elite washer f11 f14 and dl codes


Replace the CCU it is your only choice. They do not make bandaids for washing machines. If you dont fix it you will just have a non working machine soon

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.

F 11 Error Code


The door will stay locked if the machine did not drain properly. Try running a Drain & Spin cycle.
