SOURCE: Whirlpool Fron Load washer. Can not unlock door.

There is a manual way to unlock door. I copyed this from the tech sheet.
Manually Unlocking the
Door Lock System
1. Unplug the power cord from
the outlet.
2. Remove the lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of
the front and locate the bottom
of the door switch/lock unit.
4. Located on the bottom of the
door switch/lock unit is a
tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about
a ¼” or until a click is heard.
6. The door may be opened.

Also there is a test procedure you can run to check the door lock actuator.
DIAGNOSTIC TEST
The washer must be empty and
the control must be in the OFF
state before pressing the
touchpad sequence to start the
test.
Starting the Test Mode
 Close the door.
 Push CONTROL/ON (if present on
this model).
 Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle.
 Select NO SPIN by pressing the
SPIN SPEED touchpad.
 Push PREWASH OPTION four
times
within five seconds. (If
PREWASH OPTION is not present
on this model, press RINSE HOLD
four times within five seconds.)
C:00 will light up on the display.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: F11 error

The F11 fault is the motor. I have had this issue myself and found that replacing the contact brushes solved this. The brushes on most electric motors are made from carbon, and wear down with use. They are spring loaded but have a limited life span. These are also cheap to purchase.

I have a whirlpool sixth sense washing machine. the door open light constantly flashing although the door is well shut. No programmes work


We had the same issue: the cycle would start then stop, with the door open light coming on. It turned out to be a faulty contact in the door. Took a technician 15 minutes to fix.

Washing machines door open light is on, but door is shut


Found it for myself - F7=motor fault. New motor brushes fixed it. This error code will come up if the motor fails to turn on demand at any point in a program, be it filling, in a wash cycle, or spinning.

The machine runs until the spin cycle then stops


That means that you need to have the door latch replaced, a bad door sensor is preventing the washer from spinning.
Try first unjamming the latch with a stick, like a pencil for example.
If that does not work, replace the door latch.

AWM 8163 Whirlpool washing machine


hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Spin


Electrical module fault
The “Spin Speed” indicator and the “Start
Delay”
option are flashing and an audible tone
sounds. The display shows “F4” to “F16”.
Switch off the appliance. Select a programme
and press the “Start/Pause” button once
again.
The programme will continue.
If the fault re-occurs, contact After Sales
Service (see “After-Sales Service”).
