Hi

F-11 means Serial Communication Error
Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

Things to check:-

  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive system for any worn or failed components
  • Check MCU
  • Check CCU
  • Check Motor
  • Check Wire Harness
Please accept the solution if it’s helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

We have a Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 Washer that we have had for 5 years. It has been flashing F11 and DL back and forth for months. We had a tech come out (not sure he knew what he was talking about) and...


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

My Kennmore elite quiet pak 2 washing machine stops in middle of cycle and flashes letters h and f


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

Softener does not dispense and we get a code F 30


This error code F30 flashes when the central control unit (CCU) cannot drive the dispenser motor to the proper dispensing position and hence the softener dispensing problem. Disconnect power then remove the top panel and check the dispenser motor assembly for damage or broken parts. You may run a diagnostic test then take a look at the dispenser motor and observe how it behaves. Replace the dispenser motor assembly if damaged.

My whirpool locked light keeps flashing and wont wash


Hi


The light is flashing due to the door lock error. The door lock is activated as the machine experienced an error or was stopped in middle of a cycle. Or the door was being pulled while the machine was running a cycle. Try unplugging your washer and restart the washer to check if you are still getting the same blinking light. If error is still not resolved then start the rinse/spin cycle & stop the cycle, now press and hold the cancel button for 5-10 seconds. However, if you are still not able to get the door open then you'll need to open the door manually by disassembling the washer.
Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My laptop was one year old last december. my battery stopped charging the same week it became one year and the guarantee expired. having no exta time, i took the laptop to the store 5 days after...


I would strongly suggest the good old battery 'hard reset'...

1.) Turn off laptop
2.) Unplug it from power supply
3.) Hold down the power button for a minute
4.) Plug it back into the power supply
5.) Power it on and wait to see if the battery icon is showing up and charging

This has resolved a few of these ghost battery issues on some of my clients laptops! If that fails, please provide the exact model number of the Gateway laptop and which operating system you're using and we'll see if we can't find another fix.

Hope this helps,
Joe

My Whirlpool Duet washing machine keeps stopping mid-cycle at various points in the cycle and multiple times each load with F11 as the stated issue. I don't know what F11 is or what to do about it. Can...


Hi from retired Englishman in France,
Our Bosch was doing a similar thing (after about 15 years) except a diffent code number.
The problem was the motor- the brushes had worn after those many years, not unusual. Although it is possible to have the brushes changed the next set might last only a few months because of the wear on the commutator they run on. A new motor, however, tends to be expensive BUT would last a long time.
So if you machine is quite a few years old and has been used fairly regularly this could be the problem. Sorry.
Still cheaper than buying a replacement machine (which my wife wanted but I persuaded her to let me replace the motor- at a cost of about £250!

Cheers,

Calypso washer stops/runs every 5 - 30 seconds in the middle of any washing cycle. No error codes. It just stops and than runs again all the time and cannot finish any washing cycle. It is 8 years...


I had the same problem. The washer control board has an intermittent failure. If you unplug power for about 30 minutes then plug it back in you will get a PF code (power failure). Ignore this code and push start again. It may run till it finishes the cycle or it may start cycling again right away. A new board costs about $180 at repairclinic.com

Bought second hand i how do I change the answer phone message to mine?


Hello. I have located the owner manual for your phone and I will provide the link at the end of this response. If all you wish to do is change the outgoing message to your own, do the following:

The OGM is your announcement to the caller and may be up to 2 minute in length. If
you choose not to record your own OGM, the caller will hear a prerecorded OGM. Use
your OGM to advise the caller to begin talking after a beep is heard. For example:
“Hello, we are unable to take your call right now, please leave a message after the beep,
and we’ll return your call as soon as possible. Thank you for calling.”
Recording your OGM
1. Press .
2. The total number of (new) recorded ICM’s will now be announced.
3. Press 8 to stop playback.
4. Press 4 5.
5. Record your OGM.
6. Press 8 to stop recording.
7. Your OGM will be repeated after a few seconds. Repeat the same procedure if
you wish to change the OGM. Any old OGM will automatically be erased when
a new one is recorded.
