Take the lower panel of the washer front. The pump is right behind the panel either in the center or to the right side. (Depends on model)

I have the Kenmore Elite HE3t and the control panel lets me change the settings but the door stays locked and the drain pump (off the filter) keeps going but there is no water to drain...cleaned drain out...


Hi

If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Please check this video for cleaning:


Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

F- code is on door is locked


Use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hosse to remove any standing water once the water is removed the door should unlock. then check the drain pump and hoses fro anything restricting or bloxking the drain pump make sure to remove the hose from the front and or side of the drain pump.if you do not find anything then you may need to replace the drain pump.possable door lock and or communication failure with the main control board.

I have an kenmore elite with error code f02???


The drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap).

Unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

What does F2 code mean with the Kenmore Elite HE3?


Based upon your description, the drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

Flashing F 2


Your drain pump is definitely blocked/jammed. Remove drum to pump hose from pump, after unplugging the machine from the wall socket, and clear any obstruction within the hose and/or pump chamber. Also clean out front filter.
