Whirlpool Dishwasher Error Code F11

Many households have the pleasure of not having to worry about cleaning the dirty dishes after meal times, as their trusty dishwasher would come to the rescue.

A fully working dishwasher certainly makes the cleaning process pleasant and more convenient for you - and helps avoid the question of who's job it is to do the dishes each night.

If your Whirlpool dishwasher is displaying an F11 error code on the control panel display, then it’s most likely that there is a problem with the water turbidity sensor.

Don’t fret just yet though, with our knowledge and guidance you should be able to diagnose the fault and be on your way to getting your dishwasher rinsing again.

Cause 1

Turbidity Sensor Failure

If the water in your dishwasher is dirty the dishes will not be getting clean, so it is important that all the sensors are in full working order to ensure optimum performance from your dishwasher.

The turbidity sensor measures how dirty the water is so that the sensor can send a signal back to the PCB so it can adjust the number of rinse cycles it needs to run after the wash.

If this sensor is damaged or blocked in any way, your machine may alert you with an F11 error code and this means that your attention is needed.

Here we have some steps that you can do to check that the sensor is not blocked or damaged in any way.

Safety First! Please ensure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before starting any repair.

  • Removing the base cover you should be able to locate the sensor in the sump or nearby hoses. 
  • Check that it is not damaged and not blocked by any manner of debris and replace if required.

If you have identified the turbidity sensor is damaged and requires replacing, you can check our extensive range of dishwasher spares to help restore your appliance back to working order.
