Unfortunately whirlpool wont provide much support on these models, and sears hasnt a clue, but go to on whirlpool support- tech sheets use model# with out the 110. and you should be able to get a tech sheet with a code list. essentially a duet
does the lock seem to act up or is it not draining completely?
if its a slow drain check hose, make sure its not shoved in all the way, about 6 in. is it. check pump clean out at bottom. right behind lower kick panel. door lock mechanisms are common problems as well.

F11 and f dl errors

I hope that you have a serivce contract or something on this unit you need a main control board f11 means that there is communication error between the 2 computer boards the fdl means that there is is door lock problem. But that is incorrect that is how you know which board has the problem the door lock is controlled by the main computer board. it's just playing tricks on you I have tried changing the door lock with those codes and it did nothing. that board tends to be alittle pricey .good luck.

F11 code Whirlpool Duet GHW9300PWO Washer

well your close f11 is a motor control unit error or a loose connection in the wiring harness from the mcu to the motor or from the mcu up to the control panel the mcu is under the bottom kick panel un plug the washer safety first then start at the motor follow the wires back to the mcu checking wires and connectors then form the mcu up to the control board check your motor for continuity normal should be about 6 ohms between pins 1&2 then same at pins 2&3 same at pins 1&3 your motor maybe overheating and tripping out on overload then restarting when the washer motor cools down if all that checks get back with me and we will run diag on it

F11 Code

Plug off the wall. Shaking & vibration of your washer causes circuit board connections to become loose; due to faulty manufacture. Remove the 3 or 4 screws from the back & take off the top cover to secure the connections, make sure they are tight. This applies for the F11 & F dl codes. Dont forget to rate me &, merry xmas!
