    Thanks so much for the feedback. If it keeps happening I will try taking the top off. I ended up just pressing cancel and restarted the load. It seemed to run fine, however if it keeps happening I will definitely be taking your advice. I appreciate your quick response!

"F11" is a serial communications error between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and Motor Control Unit (MCU), or interconnecting wiring. In a nutshell, the CCU, (which is the main computer board for the washer) has more than likely failed. You can try disconnecting the connectors and plugging them back in on the CCU, but I haven't had much luck with that remedy. You will need to UNPLUG the washer & take the washer top off by removing the three screws in the back to gain access to it. Once removed, slide the top back and then lift up. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub.

If you cannot get the fault to clear and wish to repair this yourself, you can find the part at repairclinic.com. Just type in your complete model number and look for item number 1176592. The part lists for about $157. Searspartsdirect.com also has the part for much more, but offers informative troubleshooting diagrams. The CCU can be found under the "Control Panel Parts" heading as item number 15 (part #8182695). If you wish to do some comparative pricing of your own, use the part number provided by the Sears website.

If the washer still carries a warranty, this would be covered. Doublecheck with the manufacturer on how long some parts are covered. Some of the electronics and mechanical parts are covered beyond the one-year limited warranty that generally comes with your appliance.

I know this may be discouraging news, but you can repair this yourself and avoid labor costs. It may seem expensive, but considering how much these washers cost (I know, because I own one), it may be worth the effort. I hope this helps you. Post back if you have further questions or need instructions.

    The washer stopped in the middle of a wash cycle. The error message was 11 F. I turned it off and turned it back on and washer stilled stopped and repeated the error message.


    Hi


    An "F-11" error code on a Whirlpool Duet could cause your washer to become inoperable and stop in the middle of a load. The cause of the problem could be a number of things and may require new parts.
    F11 can mean anything from motor to motor control board to ccu board to wiring harness connecting ccu to mcu to motor.

    Identification

    The "F-11" code could appear with the dash or without the dash on the LCD screen. Be aware that there is also an "F-H" code that could look similar to the "F-11" code. Listen for 11 beeps to go along with the error code's first appearance.

    Effects

    The error means that there is no communication between the "Motor Control Unit" and the "Central Control Unit." This means that any operation selected like "Pre-wash" or "Large Load" cannot be sent to the motor for the washer to operate.

    Prevention/Solution

    Open up the washer panel to check the wire connections between the two units. If any plugs are loose or unplugged, reconnect them. Check to make sure none of the wires are stripped, rusty or broken off. After you reconnect the wires, rerun the washer to see if the error appears again.

    Warning

    If you do not know or understand the inside components of your Whirlpool washer, leave the job to a professional. Contact the store where you purchased the washer or Whirlpool customer service directly.

    Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

    We have a whirlpool duet washer that flashes F11 and will not start, I made sure the door shuts tight and also tightened the plastic latch that was loose, still not responding, please advise what you think...


    Hello,

    The F11 error code means that the motor control unit& the central control unit aren't communicating with each other

    It could be a loose wire connection between the MCU/CCU or either one could be defective

    Code F1, does not stop filling, water pours out of soap tray


    Are you sure it's not an F/H error?

    The F/H code means the unit isn't detecting water fill at the flowmeter. The flowmeter sits just in front of the inlet valve and is attached via a hose, and off to the left of the CCU. Part link to the flow meter==> http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Flowmeter/1381535?modelNumber=GHW9250MW2
    If your washer is filling ok, check the wiring from the flow meter to the control board; I've seen this harness jiggle loose and cause problems.
