Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
The washer starts to fill with water and after about 3-4 mins it shuts off and error F5 will flash before washing cycle begins. I am able to start the load again from that point, but won' t clear.
"F5" is a temperature sensor error. The following link explains how to diagnose and correct:
The first thing to try, however, is to unplug the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches. If the error code reappears, then you know you have a legitimate error. In many cases, the small connector that plugs into the heat sensor either becomes corroded, or comes loose. Make sure you troubleshoot the washer while it is UNPLUGGED.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.
First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.
Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.

Water Temperature Sensor Error
If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the "F/05" error code will be displayed.
•Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay
•Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay
