    same problem with kenmore he4t model #45088400 app. 3 years old.

    Have the same F11 variable displayed which indicates "electrical problem" in the owners manual. Before I get a service rep out on a house call any idea what I can do if anything. Problem seems to be getting worse. Please advise.

Random issues with bad solder joints on the boards ,
open the top of unit , reseat all the connectors on the control unit.
start washer ,
, push up gently on the center black wired connectors . system should start and run fine as long as you hold it up. normal issue is that the solder connections to the relays need to be resoldered due to crack around the leads.causing random issues

Electrolux front loader washer ewd1477 flashing start/pause button. interrupted during wash cycle by power outage. start/pause button now flashes and won't start any cycle.


Try to turn circuit breaker off, or unplug unit, for about 5-6 minutes. This is a hard reset and should reset the internal controls to restart the unit properly.

We have a Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 Washer that we have had for 5 years. It has been flashing F11 and DL back and forth for months. We had a tech come out (not sure he knew what he was talking about) and...


The symptoms are pretty specific for the F11 code on the Whirlpool Duet front loaders and clones (Kenmore Elite and KitchenAid):

If the washer starts to fill but the drum NEVER moves, your MCU is bad

If the washer runs through most of a cycle and then gives the F11 before (or during) a rinse or spin cycle, then you have the CCU relay problem.

If you are interested in having me repair your CCU for you, I offer that service on eBay (website coming soon). My username there is "jhagner"

Thanks

How to install windows xp in msi k8mm-v motherboard?


Hi dharmen_shah,
I see that you need to install Windows XP on you Dekstop with an MSI Motherboard k8mm-V.
I have another desktop using the same Motherboard, there are 3 options installing Windows XP on the machine.
  1. Using an IDE Optical Drive
  2. Using a SATA Optical Drive "not a common installation process on this motherboard" since you will need to install the SATA rivers first to be able to use your SATA ODD
  3. Using a USB Flash Drive
See steps below for each installation type.
*Using an IDE Optical Drive*
  • If you have your Windows XP CD insert it on the Disc Drive restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • Once in the Boot Menu screen select your Optical Drive, it may say dvd/cd or ODD, select this and press enter. Note: windows may restart during the installation if it says press any key to boot to cd do not press anything anymore leave it will do everything on it's own unless prompted for any user information like a computer name date and time.
  • You will see on the screen Boot to cd: then it will show "press any key to boot to cd" press Enter or any key this will boot from your cd Windows XP.
  • Then you will see inspecting your hardware for configuration, once it boots to your Windows XP cd you will see a blue screen Loading up drivers and stuff for the installation of Windows XP.
  • Next will be the installation of Windows XP itself, just follow the prompt it is very easy to follow and it will give you all the details and what buttons to click on.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.

*Using SATA Optical Disc Drive*
  • You will need a 1.4 floppy disc to be able to do this.
  • If you have a 1.4 Floppy Drive you will also need to download the SATA driver from the MSI website.
  • Let us disregard this option since I believe you do no have a 1.4 Floppy Disc Drive and no one uses that or has a 1.4 Floppy Drive anymore on their machines.
*Using a USB Flash Drive*
  • To be able to use a USB Flash Drive for the installation of Windows XP your USB Flash Drive should at least be 1GB or 2GB, 1GB will be enough since windows XP only uses at least 7++gb of disc space for the installer size.
  • Using you USB Flash Drive you will need to copy the whole contents of your Windows XP Cd into your USB Flash Drive, don't worry this will be bootable just make sure that you copy everything from the disc into the USB Flash Drive.
  • Once you have copied Windows XP on your USB Flash Drive insert it to one of your USB ports on the machine then restart the computer.
  • Restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • This will be the same as using your Windows XP cd but instead you will need to select USB in the Boot Menu then press enter. on the installation steps it will be the same as installing using a disc.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.
  • Windows may restart during the installation and using a USB Flash Drive will be different at this point because it will boot directly to the USB, Once it restarts and may repeat the installation all over, to prevent this as soon as the system begins to restart from the installation go and keep on tapping "Delete" once it restarts this will bring you to the BIOS screen press F9 to set it to defaults then press F10 to save and exit this will restart again.
  • Once it restarts after setting the BIOS to defaults let the system boot on its own it will then show you a screen asking what windows to install the first thing highlighted will be the installation that was halted earlier just press enter then it will show you the windows installation page and will continue on it's own.
This is based on my own experience since I have an older Desktop that has the same Motherboard, I hope that I have given you all the options possible to installing your windows XP on your Motherboard k8mm-v.
Have a nice day,

Wont let me boot windows xp off flash drive


Hi manbrand62,
I see that you are trying to boot to your Flash Drive for the installation of Windows XP, try steps below.
  • As soon as you start your computer keep on tapping F12 or F11 to boot to the Boot Menu, I'm just not sure if it's F12 or F11 on a dell but one of the 2 options will bring you to the Boot Menu page that is where you can select your USB flash drive to install windows from the USB.
  • Note: Installing from a Flash Drive will be different from using a CD, windows may restart during the installation and since you are going to be using a Flash Drive you will need to get to the BIOS screen once the system restarts then set it to default then save and exit saving settings.
  • This will restart the system and continue the installation process for Windows XP.
I hope that this will help you installing Windows XP using you Flash Drive on you machine.
Have a nice day,

AFter start of cycle F11 displays and washer stops


The Motor Control Unit has internal failure; repeating under or over voltage, or over current conditions. If failure occurs during high-speed spin the door unlocks after 3 minutes. Possible Causes/Procedure 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and b etween the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU). Check the motor and do a continuity test. 3. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 4. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor. 5. Check the drive motor for powered rotations. 6. Replace MCU board.
