I got an F11 code on our 2005 Kenmore Elite HE4t washer and the door was locked. I did some searching on the net and checked the CCU connection with no luck. I then looked in the lower part to check the MCU connection. I found the entire motor control unit horizontal on the bottom. The adhesive had come loose, the plastic mounts from the bottom are worn down. Somehow it had made its way onto its back under the drum; between the shock and the motor. One edge of the plastic case is worn off with plastic shavings loose around the bottom area. We have been having some balance issues and an occasional "knocking" (not every load). My next repair was going to be to check the bearings and spider arm. Now I am wondering if this was the source of the sound, or if it is a casualty of the drum rocking out of control? I think I'll try replacing the MCU and see how it runs. I am concerned that the wires may have been damaged. Should I be replacing the wires from MCU to the motor? Up until this one F11 code, our only issue has been the occasional balance problems. Can you quote me on the bearings and a new spider bracket if I decide to go that route next? Also, this MCU in the video/still images looks a little different from mine (and I'm not referring to the damage). The circuit board is set up differently. Are we certain it is compatible? Thank you, Lisa B

I am getting F06 and want to perform the resistance checks. It's not clear to me what needs to be disconnected and exactly where the test points 1,2 & 3 are located. Do you have a video for this or more detailed instructions? The wiring connectors all seem to be snapped in place so I suspect it is a failed MCU. I have read that the fuse on that board can be the culprit but it is not replaceable. Is there a check for that?

I've been getting 2 different error codes. One is an F1 E2 and the other is an F6 E2. I get the F1E2 more often. I've cycled the power and checked all of the connections that I can. Do you think it is the CCU or the MCU? If I by one and it doesn't work, can I return it to get the other?

F2 code has been coming up for awhile. Techs come in clean filters. I clean them often. Their not clogged or blocked-drum doesn't spin. I start wash cycle, it doesn't finish but gives f2 code. I change cycle to rinse and drain and speed of spin from high to medium and works once then next wash cycle I do same but have to try slow spin. Husband already placed new drain pump. He s wondering if he should try one of control panel. Which or what do you think is wrong. Thank you for your help R Hawkins

Hello, I have been looking at the other feeds. I have an F6 code error. When I ran the diagnostic check the motor never spun. I looked at the connectors and plugged/unplugged. Just put a new motor in and same code. From what I am reading, it sounds like the MCU, your thoughst? Thanks for your time, dave

My washer keeps coming up with f06 and stops functioning. I reseated all connectors on CCU, MCU, motor, and all other misc. Connectors with no good results. From what I read it points to a motor speed error. The motor works fine and spins fine but it continues to come up with f06 . It happens at different times in the cycle and its always different. Please let me know which board or part sounds like the most probable cause. I am pretty sure I can not return part if it does not work. I can not afford to guess but if I had to guess I would pick main control board.
