    LF appears after my maytag front loader is washing for about 4 min. We took the screens out, cleaned out and swapped ends of hoses from washer to the water valves. Still not working. Washer only a yea


    LF means long fill....if the flow meter does not detect
    the correct amount of water entering the machine the
    code will appear. Google Maytag front load washer
    LF code...there are several links including a video
    that should help you solve the problem.

    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"

    If Pause/Cancel does not work:
    1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.

    3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
    NOTE: If the error remains on the display, then call for service.

    Take care

    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.

    Stops on spin cycle and gives a f11 error code


    F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears. Press Cancel, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right. Press this button until no-spin lights. Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display. Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08. If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.

    My Kenmore Elite front loader HE3 washer will not start.


    The door lock is not telling the control the door is locked. Faulty door switch or failed control or loose wire.Try pushing in on the door while it tries to start. Advanced trouble shooting may be required.

    Resetting washer after the problem is fixed


    Did you unplug the washer at any point while you were repairing it? Normally, to reset some minor glitches with the washer all that is required is to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes. This will reset the CCU. If you had the power secured, the problem SHOULD have gone away with the installation of the new door latch. Unless...you purchased a defective door latch, or have a faulty wiring harness. What was the error code you originally experienced? The reason I ask, is because if this is a Kenmore Elite Front Loader as the one pictured above, there is no "lf" error code. "Fdl" and "Fdu" error codes are usually the indication of a defective door latch. Could you please post back and clarify this information for me?
