Psyco whirlpool duet washer

Have been having problem with F11 error,but yesterday it just died, no lights,nothing. I reseated all connections and finally got the control lock light on, but can't get it to work still.
I held the cycle button down as instructed but it still won't work. The door will open and shut. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

F!! ERROR

Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the
Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

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 shouldshould be to the left when facing the MCU connectors.

We have a whirlpool duet washer that flashes F11 and will not start, I made sure the door shuts tight and also tightened the plastic latch that was loose, still not responding, please advise what you think...


Hello,

The F11 error code means that the motor control unit& the central control unit aren't communicating with each other

It could be a loose wire connection between the MCU/CCU or either one could be defective

What does F11 error code mean on a whirlpool washing machine?


This code indicates a serial communication error, meaning communication between the central control unit (ccu) and the motor control unit (mcu) cannot be sent correctly. Check the wiring harness connections at the CCU and the MCU. Unplug and reseat and make sure there is no corrosion. It can also indicate a problem with the door lock relay on the control board, a faulty hall sensor, or the mcu or ccu themselves. I think that I'd recommend getting an appliance tech to take a look at it, but try the unplug/reseat electrical connections fix first. Very sorry for your trouble. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Error code displayed on duet washer.


Pull off the front bottom panel and check your service sheet to verify error codes. You probably have a bad door switch.

Washer stops with F and then 11 error message


F11 is usually a generic code that indicates a communication error between the central control unit and the motor control unit. The first thing I would do is check the connection at the control board. A common problem is the connection jiggling loose. Unplug and reseat the plug and check for any corrosion which is the enemy of good electrical connections. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Older whirlpool duet washer has error F11


F11 is a serial communication error between the central control unit and the motor control unit.
Unplug the machine and open the panels.
Unplug and re-plug all wire connectors from the ccu to the mcu.
Inspect all wires and harnesses for a bad wire.
Could be bad components; ccu or mcu or motor

Whirlpool Duet Washer GHW9150PWO Have F11 and DL errors. Have replaced the door lock 2 x and still have same error messages.


Well du is a door lock error but it can also mean an error with communication to the main control board or ccu. f11 is also a communication error in either the ccu or the mcu ( motor control board)......easiest thing to try is to unplug all your connections to the ccu and plug them back in and try it again.....sometimes a wire harness just may be loose....if that dosent work I would look at replacing the ccu ( central control unit )
