There is a filter at the bottom of the unit that sometimes needs cleaned. You have to take of the bottom panel to get at it. It looks like a cylinder and you have to turn it counterclockwise.
If there is water in the unit, be prepared for some to spill.
You will likely find change...pencils, pens, and so on in this.
I've owned mine for 5 years and just found this out in the last week...
Hopefully that will fix your issue ;-)

Why does my kennmore smartwash elite keeps beeping and fashing f 02 signal


Hi,

Your drain pump can't drain all the water, so your drain pump has a cap on it to clean out the filter. Clean the filter and try again, if this code comes back, replace the pump. Good Luck

My Kennmore elite quiet pak 2 washing machine stops in middle of cycle and flashes letters h and f


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

FH error is displayed when the control detects no water entering the machine. To clear this error press and hold the PAUSE/CANCEL button twice. You can then check if the water inlet valve is fine and not clogged with foreign particles, try to clean it. If the water inlet valve appears to be fine then check if the pressure switch hose is properly connected to the pressure switch & tub. Please get back to me if you have any questions.

Error code fh the and the machine would not drain


I know you said you had done all this, bhut these are the commentsstraight from CD manual.

Kenmore Elite 2 front loading washing machine. About every 2 minutes the cycle stops and flashes an "f" then an "h" on the display over and over again. **

That error code can be the result of no water detected entering machine after 30 seconds or pressure switch (water level control) activation not detected after 8 minutes of filling.

If there is no water in the machine at the time, make sure that both water taps are turned on, check for kinked fill hoses or plugged sediment screens in them and verify the water fill valve operation. You can read about the water valves used on appliances at the following link:

If there is water in the unit, verify drain pump and water pressure switch are operating properly, the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to the pressure switch. Also, make sure the water is not siphoning out of the machine prematurely due to an improperly installed drain hose (see the following link).

That error might also be caused by too much suds in the wash water like can result from using non-HE detergents.

Getting an FH error code during the cycle count down


The FH code indicates it is not detecting water fill at the flow meter. Since you say that the washer is filling okay, I would check the wiring between the flowmeter and the control board. A common cause of this problem on this machine is the wiring harness jiggling loose. Unplug and reseat the wiring harness and see if it clears up the problem. Also look for and clean out any corrosion build-up where the harness plugs in. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore elite he3 flashing FH


The following link explains the "FH" error:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615354-fh_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

This can be a rather tough one to figure out, even with the error code explanation. I would recommend unplugging the washer for AT LEAST 30 minutes first. This will reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, check your washer installation to rule out the easiest possiblities, first. This means checking to ensure you don't have a siphoning condition, checking your drain lines and checking to ensure your fill hoses aren't kinked or clogged. Read through the link thoroughly and let me know if you have questions. I hope this helps you.
