Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Dont forget lots of errors can be caused by the motor burshes
lots of people will think na they are ok they dont need replaced
however this is actually the case
BUT what happens is as they wear the carbon from them ends up on the case of the motor and more important the electrical plug and socket on it
this causes a current to flow accross the carbon dust
and can upset the normal operation of the motor and the speed sensor and motor condition anaysis
so you can get a ghost error just caused by carbon dust
when you open the machine simply use a dry paint brush and give the motor a good brush around
to remove the conduction path
this dust can lead the the mains supply in your homes safety sensors tripping
i fix this fault about 20 times a day!!!!

Thanks for using FixYa. F11 is a communication error between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU). To start with check the wire harness connections between CCU and MCU, and then check the motor. If both of them appear to be working fine then it seems that the MCU of your washer has gone bad as the control unit seems to be working fine. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
