Tip & How-To about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I too was having an F-20 problem, and tried all the regular fixes mentioned on the tips page. Still no work? I opened the hood on top by removing the three screws on the top back and sliding the lid off. I found that there is a rod that is attached to the soap gate, and the gate for the bleach and had slipped off. As the relay turned on, the gates would not open and thus created a water flow problem. I reattached the rod, I put a small screw to hold it in place as I think there must have been something there originally that broke off. Problem solved! Just thought I would relay the fix as it is kind of rare, and was never mentioned on the page. Good luck!
