Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool 'F11' decodes as 'communications error, (control unit)' sometimes cured by re-seating plugs and cables. Sorry, engineer call-out ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

I have a hp stream locked up and I can't get reset. I need a disc and I don't have one, do I have any other options?

what does locked up mean?
be more clear please.
on modern HP PC, the F11 key works, as stated in the service manual, of your unstated PC, (lots of streams there are)
but you power on, hammer the f11 key and bingo recovery mode.
(hint if the HDD drive is bad , this fails)
this erases all data and apps you loaded since new and goes back to ,day one 1 state.
if locked up means lost password, then tell what it was lost.
or W10 , local or

if f11 is dead and the hdd is bad (or ssd) then you need a new hdd or ssd and a new OS.
if you dont have the HP disks , ask HP for them we are not HP at all.

ask here.
tell them the full PC model number
and the tell what it does good or bad. (the story unstated)

I need to factory restore a Toshiba Laptop c655d s5133.

When you restart it, should say something like "Press F11 for system recovery." It might not be F11, but it will be one of the F keys. It will tell you which one during startup.

Mfw97000sq1 model. had problem with error code f11 could you tell me what wrong?


Thanks for using FixYa. F11 is a communication error between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU). To start with check the wire harness connections between CCU and MCU, and then check the motor. If both of them appear to be working fine then it seems that the MCU of your washer has gone bad as the control unit seems to be working fine. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer Error Code F11

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 Cancell, 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.

Error F11

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. Works for certain machines, dont see why it wont for yours.
