Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
"F11" is a Serial Communications error. This is an indication of a communications problem between the Central Control Unit (CCU), Motor Control Unit (MCU), or the interconnecting wiring between the two. The following link explains:
I'm assuming the problem may be related to your CCU, because its located just below the top panel of the washer in the location you are hitting. You will need to remove the panel and check all your connections, to be sure.
FYI: If you do determine that the CCU is the cause of the problem, the part number is 8182695. Some sites may carry a refurbished version that costs less than a new one. For a full explanation of all the error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.
To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.
The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
Prices will vary between sites so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.
