Question about KitchenAid KHWS01PMT Front Load Washer

2 Answers

F-11 In the begining I too had the DL-F code. Had the repairman out to fix it. (expesive too)!!!!! Now I have the F-11 code. The unit works fine untill about 1-2 mins from the end of the final spin cycle. I used to be able to get it going again by hitting the canceal button until it stops flashing, & it reads back to the last 1 or 2 mins left. From there I then push & hold the start button (about 5sec). Wait another 5sec, then I hear a click & it starts up right were it left (stopped) off. But, today (6-14-08) it will not even do that. It just will not click & start. Now it will just start beeping AGAIN, untill I hit the canceal button, like I was going to repeat the same steps AGAIN!!!!!!!!!

FIRST COMMENT
F11 Serial communication error Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

Possible Causes / Procedure

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the MCU connectors.

Replace failed component.

    The problem is that it can be a multitude of problems with Kitchenaid F11

    Is the opperation of the washer normal during the first say half an hour when you start opperating it?

Washer goes through cycle, until around 11 minutes until finished it stops, and goes into dL. Will not finish load. What does this mean?


Hi.

the error F/dL means Door Lock Error

The error is prompted when the door cannot be unlocked.

Here possible causes.

Door Latch mechanism broken
Door Switch Assembly defective
Wire Harness from Central Control Unit to the Door Latch or Switch Assembly broken
Central Control Unit (CCU)
Door Lock or Switch temporary failure (it can be reset disconnecting power)

You will probably need to replace the door lock assembly. Parts must be tested first.

Regards.

I've gotten the error code DL and then F, I tried sanding, unplugging but it still shows me the error. How can I fix it?


Hi,
Initially unplug the washing machine.While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for five seconds.
Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the DL code is cleared.

If you still face the problem then follow the procedure:

Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause].
This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum.

Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Hope this helps.
