Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
My clothes will not rinse and spin out
First, make sure that you do not overload the machine.
When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.
The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

WATER TEMPERATURE SENSOR ERROR
next information is only for the TECHNICION
If the water temperature sensor NTC value is out of range (23 F to 217 F to 103F C) during the water-heating step of the WASHcycle.
NOTE:To find corrrect Ohm reading refer to the water temperature sensor in TECHNICION ONLY section.
1.- Unplug washer or disconect power.
2.*check the water senser and conection to it.
3.-check resistence of heating element, if present on this model(abnormal=indifinity)

you can remove the bottom access panel to get to the drain pump. there might be something in the coin trap.

The F03 code is a problem with your water system. your inlet valves may have failed.
Open up the bottom panel and you will find a tech sheet that explain the codes and gives trouble shooting techniques. here is the service manual, good luck, hope this helps......
