Check the pump first but you most in likley have a bad circut board. On the front of the washer their is a kick panel. Remove the 3 screws on the bottom and remove it. Taped on the inside is a book of codes and some self diagnostics you can run. This is all your repairman will do and he will order the circut board and charge you more than the washer is worth.

Not enough weight in the washer I am guessing. Try adding more clothes.

Wash Cycle will not start; ADD GARMENT and DOOR LOCKED lights on.


IF you take the panel off the is below the door, there is a drain plug and you should take it out. YOU will get lots of WATER. Be ready. Clean this out and try again. The issue is most likely the water solenoid valve is bad or the board that controls it is bad. You can also find the tech sheet when you look for the drain. It has all the tests that you can run.

HE2 Kenmore Washer stuck on F01 error message and Add Garment light on. Any trouble shooting suggestions?


The F01 error is a communication error and most likely the cause is a bad central control board. You tried to unplug the power and the machine still will not start so next I'd recommend trying to run a diagnostic cycle to verify the operation of the central control.In the image below are the instructions to enter and run the diagnostic routine. If the process is done successfully all of the LED light will come on for 5 seconds then display the last error. Push the same button until the error code ends and all the lights come on again for 5 seconds then the test will start.
If the test runs through okay then the central control unit is most likely okay. If it fails to enter diagnostic then the control has failed and needs to be replaced.
The last thing to try is to check the connections on the control. A loose connector might cause this problem
To see how the control unit  looks please check out this link.

--------
Resolution: Error code F-01 can be caused by a power surge or other electrical anomaly,attempt to return the washer to operation by following the Hard Reset procedure below.
To clear and restart the control follow the below listed steps:
  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit into the wall outlet.
  3. Wait for another 30 seconds to allow the control to recognize all components.
  4. Press the Pause, Cancel or Stop button twice to clear the display.
  5. To test operation of the washer,select Drain & Spin cycle, then press and hold the start button until the machine starts.
If the cycle does not start, there may be an internal component failure that requires service by a professional technician.
Note: General information for resolution is based on information provided in question. Please contact a repair technician if problem persist. Call Sears Repair Service 1-800-469-4663

Can't get washer to start again after pushing pause/cancel button


sounds like central control unit problem, you can check for diagnostic mode operation by setting (door closed) drain/spin, no spin, pressing prewash 4 times in 5 secs pressing prewash again will advance through diagnostic cycle. replacing user interface may also be necessary

Control lock light will not go off.


Do you have any error codes?

Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.
