F2 and beeping

In the middle of the night I heard a beeping. It was my washing machine. An error F followed by a 2. I turned the power off and them back on and the flashing light kept running through the spin cycles and the wash time kept changing. It wa 3am so I turned the power off and went back to bed. Half an hour later it was beeping again. I have to unplug it to keep it from beeping. Sounds like a computer problem but is there any way to reset it? A tech cant get here for a week. (mine is model Kenmore Oasis HE 110.2706 top loading. Thanks. Sherri

The F2 error is the user control board gone south on you, a new board will fix the machine, as always do you own your home and does the insurance cover appliances?

I have a Top Load Kenmore Elite Oasis Washing Machine, like many other people I am experiencing the F2 Error. It started first by stopping in the middle of a cycle and beeping then started with the F2...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
In common with other makes of washer such as some of Whirlpool's models, 'F02' can point to a simple thing like a blocked filter ('drainage problem'). It's well worth carrying this out anyway-

So I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

F2 code


Hi, F2 code on the Kenmore indicates a problem with either of the control board and the user interface board. Run the console and indicators diagnostic test mode to find out.

Console and Indicators Diagnostic Test Mode Activation
  1. While in standby mode press the following button sequence within four seconds: SOIL LEVEL>WASH RINSE TEMP>SOIL LEVEL>WASH RINSE TEMP
  2. Press START within five seconds when "dt" shows on the display. All indicators in display are lit and "88" is displayed.
  3. Press START again. The two-digit display and the status indicators turn off while all other indicators remain lit.
  4. Press START again. The two-digit display and the status indicators turn on while all other indicators remain lit.
  5. Rotate the WASH CYCLE selector back and forth. The indicators will switch on an off.
  6. Press the buttons to check the functions. The indicators switch on and off and a beeping sound will be heard when a button is pressed.
  7. Press STOP or POWER button to exit diagnostic test mode.
  8. If no indicators light up or if no beeping sound is heard when a button is pressed or if some buttons do not light up indicators when pressed, check the control board, the user interface board, and the connection between them.
  • Unplug the machine.
  • Remove the three screws on the back of the console.
  • Lift the console off the cabinet.
  • The control board is located on the right side of the console viewed from the front of the machine. Disconnect the middle wiring harness connector on the right side of the control board near the pressure transducer hose.
  • Clean the connector and the terminals thoroughly with brush and alcohol.
  • Reconnect and disconnect the connector several times.
  • Reinstall the console and reconnect power.
  • If the problem is not resolved, replace the user interface board.
  • If the problem is still not resolved with the replacement of the user interface board, replace the control board. You may also replace both board at the same time and keep the old good board as a spare.
Take care

During the wash cycle the machine comes to a stop and beeps. display shows "F2" ??? I then have to pause it then turn the machine back on for it to continue.


If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F02" is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display.

NOTE: After four minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then four minutes later the "F02" error code will be displayed..

Possible Causes / Procedure

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HE (2706?)


I just found out sears has a recall for the control board for the top loader. I have the same problem. I called and to my suprise they said the swap was free. 1-800-659-7026. Have your model and serial ready. located under the door. This problem has been extreemly irritating for months now and I am sure sears is still collecting huge repair bills from people. No more sears products for me either!

The problems posted by kim875 and kirsty2 all seem to be the result of faulty signals from the electronic board. This seems to be a real problem with this model machine. I would try to get board replaced under warranty , if at all possible.
