What does it mean when my washer shows F11...does it mean that the computer board needs replacing?
Answer Hello EWS. Communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU)
and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent
correctly. Possible Causes / Procedure
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
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not
mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left
when facing the MCU connectors.
I have a GHW9150PW4 Whirlpool Duet front loading washer. The unit fills up half way with water and after 12 minutes generates a F/H error. I replaced the pressure switch 8181695 and vacuum tubing leading to the pressure switch. I hate to buy a control board 8182695 if not the problem. Any suggestions?
You will want to make sure that there is no clogged screen in the water valve. Check to make sure that there is not a siphoning issue where the water is draining at the same time. Verify the wire harness connections to the inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter, and central control unit. Check hoses for leaks verify the flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and measure the resistance and if all of this checks ok then replace the Central control unit.
washer starts to fill with water ( water pressure is good), then within approx. 30 seconds an FH code beeps and the water stops. what and how do I test, to diagnose the problem? pretty certain it is not the inlet valve, seems to be working until the code beeps, then the water slows and stops.
Answer John, The "FH" error code indicates an issue in the water fill circuit " FH / No water detected entering machine or pressure switch trip not detected." Since your " water pressure is good" you would want to start by checking the air pressure tube W10004260 disconnect the hose from the water level switch W10514214 to the drain pump assembly 280187 and blow in the end of the hose, This should clear any debris that may have accumulated in the tube, and is blocking the air flow to the switch. Also check and make sure there are no loose wire connections at the switch and the CCU.
My washer only allows me to lock and unlock the controls. no other lights come on. what would be the problem?
Answer Hello Scott,
You should pull the tech sheet and put the unit into a diagnostic test. If it will not go, check all connections by unplugging each connector and re-connecting them. Do this, of course, one at a time so you don't cross any connections. If this still produces no results, the user interface 8182785 has failed and will require replacement.
