Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "F11" fault code will display when there is a loss of communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU). Since you have already replaced the CCU and MCU, I suspect bad or loose wire connection between the CCU and MCU. I would disconnect the harness between the CCU and MCU and test each wire end to end for continuity with an Ohm meter. If all the wires are Okay, I suspect you may have installed a faulty MCU or CCU. 

You never indicated if the drive motor ever ran or not. Maybe the motor is bad. You can test the motor by disconnecting the harness from the motor and measuring the Ohm resistance across the pins on the motor.  To test the motor; Ohm across pins 1 and 2, 2 and 3, and 1 and 3. All three should measure approximately 6 Ohms of resistance.

 

 If you get an F11, make sure you have VAC out of the Machine Control to the Motor Control Board at MS2.1 to MS.2.2. If not, replace the Machine Control Board. This can cause an F11. 

Voltage flows from the Machine Control to the Door Lock Assembly.  The Door Lock then energizes and closes the Door Lock MAIN Switch.  Voltage flows out of the Door Lock Main Switch to the Motor Controller.  So if you have power into the Door Lock Assembly but not out of the Main Door Lock Switch it will give you an F11.  If so replace the Door Lock Assembly. 

NOTE:  At one time we had an issue with Cold Solder joints on the Machine Control Board due to the manufacturing process.  On the older ones you could wiggle the connectors DLS or MS and cause the Codes to come up, and sometimes all you have to do is put your meter probes in the connectors and that might create the code or cause it to work.  Sometimes the control had to heat up a little from being used before the failure was evident.  You should not see very many of the older bad Machine Control Boards but there are still a few out there.  

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thank you for your help. I tested the continuity on pins 1,2 & 3 per above which read 16Mohms (I think that's infinity for my mm). New motor on the way. Thanks for your help.

SUCCESS!!! I replaced the motor, which I think had failed, but did not correct the problem. I followed your advice and checked the communications cable between the CCU & MCU. While the cable did work i noticed that the end that connected to the CCU was not nearly as tight as the end connecting to the MCU. I suspected that there was poor connectivity at the CCU and the cable. I removed the CCU and added some solder onto the leads where the cable would connect (top and bottom). Eureka! Thank you for all your help and advice. it pointed me in the right direction when I had multiple issues to resolve.

Hi Belinda,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your washer.

This error indicates a drain issue; typically the drain hose is kinked or clogged, the drain pump is clogged, or the household drain is clogged. I recommend checking the drain system.

The model number you gave me is inaccurate therefore I am unable to assist you with specifics for disassembly.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Follow the procedures in this answer, and if I may be of further assistance please include your model number in a reply to this post.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.

The 2203079 diffuser part is making a clicking sound. I don't think I need to pay a tech to tell me that. What does the diffuser do for the refrigerator?

A:

The diffuser has a damper in it that opens and closes to control the amount of cold air let into the refrigerator section. The control board where you adjust the temperature sends voltage to the damper to open or close it as needed.

The clicking noise usually indicates a problem inside the damper assembly and to repair the problem the diffuser should be replaced.

Thanks for sending the image so we can see the problem. Having gotten this far, I don't think you will have a problem replacing the diffuser.

The part number of the diffuser assembly is 2216112, and the cost is $74.01.
