Whirlpool Duet Sport Model WFW8300SW0 basket won't

The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: - Duet HT washer - F01, F03, F06, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, F32, F35, F42, F61, F62, F63, F64, F65, F70, F71, and F99

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

I would first replace the door latch/lock assembly, a number of users have and it fixed the F-11 error code completely. Its the cheapest part for this problem.

Hope helps.

Flashing f11 code in spin cycle. meed a manual for the He 4t. have also seen a dl code once.

The F11 error code indicates an internal failure of the MCU (Motor Control Unit). Most often the MCU will need to be replaced; however there are a few things you may want to check first. If you have a volt/ohm meter and are comfortable working around live electricity I can give you a few checks that will help you diagnose the problem.

I have included an illustrated set of instructions, that should guide you through the disassembly and testing for the F11 (see this image).

Check the wiring harnesses between the CCU (Central Control Unit) and the MCU, and between the MCU and motor. If these connections are not good there can be a loss of communication between the computer boards and the motor.

Check continuity of the motor windings and tachometer. Begin by Ohming the set of 5 black wires (this connection also has a green wire) at the MCU. They are numbered from top to bottom 1-5, with 1 being the top black wire.

Ohm 1 to 2, 1 to 3, and 2 to 3, then Ohm 4 to 5. Wires 1, 2, and 3 should read approximately 6 Ohms when Ohmed two at a time, 4 and 5 should read approximately 115 Ohms together. If the readings you get are not close to 6 (5 - 7) and 115 (110 -125) the motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

If the Ohm readings are close to those given, and the wires and connectors are good, replace the MCU.

Just looking for that an error f 11 means


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.

Thank you !!

Thank you!!

"F09" is a "Flood Condition" error code. The following link explains this:

Read through the information thoroughly and verify all the recommended steps. More than likely you have a drainage issue with the drain pump as a possible culprit.

If you need to check the drain pump for obstructions, the next link explains how:

Let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

PS All the fault codes are normally in a tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. This tech sheet is usually placed inside the washer behind the lower panel, or affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

Error Codes F dl and F 11 sounds like you have a bad door latch assembly. It makes contact, washer begins the wash cycle, and then after some vibration becomes unlatched and generates the "Fdl" code or "F11". "Fdl" is a door latch error, "F11" is a serial communications error to the CCU. A door latch problem can generate BOTH codes, because it has a communication link to the CCU. I would recommend replacing the door latch. You can find the part at either or Just type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search menu and you will find a listing of all the parts. For instructions on how to replace the door latch, go to my profile and look under "Tips and Tricks". I have a write-up listed there on how to replace a door latch on a front loader. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, or have any further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
