Question about Kenmore 4292x Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Persistent F02 / SUD error. Tried all the tricks!

I have the HE3T, and I now can't get through a load. It stops running and begins flashing a F02 error. If I cancel and restart, it runs for a few minutes, shows a SUD error, and eventually stops with a F02 error again. I have cleaned out the filter, replaced the pump, and augered out the drain hose! What now?

    This is happening with zero suds in the water.
    I've checked the hose from the pump to the bottom of the tank (as well as I can). I've also checked just inside the front load door, under the seal.

    What is next?

    Pulled off the hose between the tank and the filter. Found lots of debris (small items from wash) plugging the ball-valve just beneath the tank. It is working great now!

    Thanks!

Kenmore HE3 front loader keeps getting F02 error message, most often when I wash towels. I was able to workaround by pulling half the load, but that no longer does the trick.

***You stated that there was a noise when you started a manual drain. This may be a damaged drain impeller. in this case, replace the entire pump(drain).

Have "sud" code and"f 02" code


I don't have a solution but I feel your pain.

I had an F02 error flashing so I got brave and took off the front panel and opened up the drain thing. What a mess! Water everywhere and OMG,the filter was caked with goop, a popsicle stick and a piece of metal.

I still get a Sud error so I am having the Sears guy out in the morning.
