Hi, this is how to fix the error, remove the top cover by removing the three 7mm screws on the back of the machine at the top. Slide the cover to the rear and lift off. The CCU board has 2 relays on it. They have white plastic covers. One is labeled K4 and I believe the other is K2. There are five legs on each relay soldering them to the circuit board. Remove the circuit board from the machine. It is the one you can see with the top off in the back of the machine. Unplug all the connectors. Unsolder the 2 relays...brand name Omron. With a jewelers screwdriver carefully remove the plastic cover on the K4 relay. Examine the contact points on the normally open contacts and I will guarantee they will look dull and burnt. They should be bright and shiny. You can burnish the contact points lightly and clean them with electrical contact cleaner. If you take off the cover of the 2nd relay you will see the contact points are nice and bright and shiny. Swap the 2 relays and resolder them on the circuit board. While you have the board out, take a pencil eraser and rub it on the contact points where all the connectors slide onto the board. Spray the electrical contact cleaner to wash any residue away. Carefully reinstall the circuit board and replace the top cover. Our machine has done dozens of loads since I did this with no more problems. I expect another failure at some point when the points deteriorate on the swapped relay. At that point I will try and find replacements for both relays. The K2 relay apparently has less voltage going thru the contacts and does not fail. If you feel real comfortable, you can check the "wiping" action of the points by manually operating the relay when you have it out. I adjusted mine to give a bit more wipe on both relays.

What does error code E-11 mean


Hello Roger, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided you would like to know what an E-11 error code means on your Frigidaire washer. An E-11 error code means that the fill time is too long. This could be a possible problem with your pressure sensor, water valve, or main control panel. If the water pressure is below 30 PSI then it will continue to display the error code of E-11. Also make sure the hoses are not restricted or blocked because this could cause the error code to display. I hope this information has been helpful to you. -Matt

Main spout emits water. Side spouts do not. After just a few minutes, light blinks 11 minutes on and off. Cause?


Thank you for your inquiry, Judy Mudgett!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is displaying 11 minutes and lights are blinking. Sounds like you may have a possible issue with your control panel or miscommunication. I would suggest resetting your washer and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to have a problem with your display I would suggest having a professional technician come out and perform a proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

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.

Machine will not lock door or code F 1 Comesup


This can be a door lock or a main control, or both. Whirlpool builds this and there is no good diagnosis to determine what part is bad. I usually replace the door lock mechanism first as this is the most common cause and also the cheapest. However when you tell me that you have had it work by moving the wiring terminals at the main control, (also called a ccu), then I would change your ccu first. This is a great washer and we suspect that a lot of these repairs are not the manufacturers fault but are actually caused by power surges. Buy a 2000 joule or higher, wall mounted surge protector from you local harware store and plug the washer into this to prevent this repair from recurring. This repair actually happened to my own washer and I was tapping on the control to get it to work for a while, but finally replaced it. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Iget a f-11 trouble code on my kenmore elite he4t washer.


REplace your MCU. The MCU is the Drive Motor Control board and is located in the rear of the washer adjacent to the Drive Motor on the left-hand side (facing from the rear with the back panel removed). The wiring harness can also cause the error, but it is not as common a problem. Go onto kenmore.com and find your right washing machine and replace the part yourself. First try and take the wiring harness off and then reconnect it and see if the error code goes away if it doesnt then replace the part. Please Rate. Thank you

I jhavent got to figure out what an F1 is. I suspect its a "Fill" code 1?

Does it fill with water okay? If it dosnt fill within a cretian time I bet the computer see this and causes a F1? But Im guessing.

If it is this take your hoses off the washer not the faucet. put loose ends in the washer tub and hold em down while Turning on the water. Look for rust, sand or any thing that might be coming into the screens. If you have low water pressure this could be the cause also. But only remove the hose on the faucet end if you have low water pressure then look for the screens on the faucet end.
Also check the inlet of the washer at the water valve for mud, dirt or anything.

I need to know if this is what an F1 code is if you wouldn't mind posting back and if this helps you please rate me as high as you can. Thank you and good luck.
