"F11" is defined as a Serial Communications error. This is an indication of a communications problem between the Central Control Unit (CCU), Motor Control Unit (MCU), or the interconnecting wiring between the two. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608695-f11_error_code


To rule out the possibility of an erroneous program error, UNPLUG the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes to reset the CCU. Plug the washer back in and attempt to run a program (DRAIN and SPIN is recommended since the washer has already run through a wash cycle). The washer should allow the tub to fill and run through a drain sequence, before finally doing a final spin. If the error code reappears, you know you have a legitimate problem and will need to troubleshoot.


Remove the top panel of the washer and check all the connections at the CCU, first. Remove the connectors that run between the CCU and MCU and reseat them, one at a time (refer to the tech sheet that comes with the appliance). Sometimes reseating the connector plugs can correct certain problems.

FYI: If you do determine that the CCU is the cause of the problem, some sites may carry a refurbished version that costs less than a new one.


For a full explanation of all the error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to accurately troubleshoot this error code.


Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com


Prices will vary between sites so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know.

Read through the information provided and if you have questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

    Tip

    Fix your F11 FDL error forever.....


    STOP the insanity....that's what you're saying if you encounter the F11 and/or fDL error codes on your washer. If you're not there yet, you will be soon....
    The dreaded F11 and/or fDL codes - been there done ALL that!! Our Whirlpool DUET washer is just over 5 years. We experienced our first F11 code 6 months ago (warranty just expired what else is new?). When it first happened, I thought nothing of it - hit the cancel button and the machine reset itself. Then it happened again and again and again. Each time it happened it was more challenging to reset it. I searched for the fix on line - I should have done my research before we purchased the washer.
    I was able to determine the error was stemming from the CCU board. Order a new one at over $300.00 and have the same thing happen again - I don't think so. We tried EVERYTHING suggested on multiple websites.....unplugging the washer, hitting the right upper side, checking wires, wiggling the wires, wedging things to improve contacts, soldering, re-soldering, Vaseline, changed relays....anything and everything was a temporary fix. Contact Whirlpool directly? Tried that too, they apparently don't recognize there is an issue with F11 fDL errors, "not a commonly called in concern". Really?? We started searching washers to purchase....I couldn't bare spending $$$ for another washer, but we are a busy active family with 4 kids - what are our options? Then one night after searching the websites for one last desperate attempt at salvaging our washer, I followed through on a link:

    email: selling.surplus@gmail.com

    Now, I'm the biggest sceptic in the world and the most frugal consumer - really I am. I am posting my testament to this service because I've been there - frustrated, disappointed, angry. I am so pleased with the service Ed provided - from answering all my questions, to the superb job he did on the CCU. You can review all the comments posted by all his other pleased customers on eBay. I had to stand by my washer for the first 6 loads - just in case the beep beep beeps started. To my astonishment, amazement, and surprise - it never happened!! In my opinion, this is the only true fix for your F11/Fdl error!!
    I never imagined in my wildest dreams ever telling anyone how happy I am to be doing my laundry again, but I really am!!

    Ghw9150pw2 My 2006 Whirlpool Duet washer is showing an F11 code. It will run a small amount of water initially, but then stop and throw the code. It was ran a few loads successfully one night, and the next...


    The F11 code indicates that there is a communication error between the motor or MCU and the CCU (central control unit or clock). To reset the washer and try again, press Pause/Cancel twice. Then press Drain/Spin. Then try setting up to run a load.

    If the error recurs, you need to check the wiring harnesses and connectors between multiple components, check for wear at the motor bearings and other drive components. Then next components to check are the MCU (motor control unit) and the CCU. This may be a good time to get a technician to check out the unit.

    I hope this helps.
