"F11" is a Serial Communications error. In a nut shell, the Central Control Unit (CCU) isn't communicating properly with one or more components. The following link explains:
This problem can be attributed to wiring, a bad connector plug, or the CCU itself has failed. You can attempt to reset the CCU by unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes. Sometimes these error codes are erroneous and a reset will correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears following a reset, you have a problem. Please read through the link provided. If you still require assistance, please let me know.
If you're looking for technical data about the error code, there is a tech sheet affixed to the interior cabinet wall behind the lower panel under the door. There are three torx screws under the front edge of the panel that you will need to remove. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down then off.
If you are looking for a User's Manual that explains the operation of the washer, you can go to Managemyhome.com and register (this is a FREE service). Once registered, look under the "Home Managers" heading and click on the "Owner's Manuals" link. Follow the instructions on the next page and your owner's manual will be available in a downloadable .pdf format.
If you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My washer stopped and displayed the LE error code. I turned off the power button and tried again, but after a few seconds it want back to LE. Finally, I unplugged the power cord, plugged it back in, and the washer ran normally.

fl flashes if any overfill condition occurs.this condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip.the control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for fl to be displayed.with an overfill condition ,the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out.the pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on 30 seconds off untill the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.press stop/cancel to clear the display.

SOURCE: My washer is flashing "F-21"
"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This is usually an indication that you may have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:
Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing such as socks or under garments can become lodged in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.
NOTE: A "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F21" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error (if displayed) should go away.
NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:
These are both very simple repairs that you can perform yourself without the assistance of a repairman.
NOTE: For an explanation of all the error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.
To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front fett of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.
The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.
Read through the information provided and if you have questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER. I hope you find this information helpful.
