This is unbelievable. This washer is 1.5 years old. I was told it was top of the line. I looked up to see what this error code is and I find out everyone is having the same problem. There has got to be something we can do. I have to Pause the washer and then start again. Sometime that works. Sometimes I have to switch it all the way to rinse and spin and go throught the motions there. I am calling tomorrow.......
I have a Kenmore Elite Oasis and the F1 error code continues to happen 5 minutes after pushing start. Today, it happened before the spin cycle.

Actually, your error code is "Sd" and indicates that the washer thinks that there are too many suds in the basket / drum.
Your buzzing sound is also likely to be the water inlet valves, common to top loaders as well, as the washer is adding additional water to rinse excessive suds out. Check your supply hoses for kinks, connections for scale buildup inside, as well as the screens on the inlet ports of the washer itself.
A kinked or restricted drain hose can also throw an Sd error code as well.
This is from a service bulletin. This may be of interest to you. I agree with you that fancy doesn't necessarily mean better. Anyway, I sympathize and hope this helps. Best wishes.

Called 1-800-253-1301. Spoke to a woman named Valerie in customer service. She told me there was a quality issue associated with the F1 fault code and they would take care of the repair parts and labor at NO CHARGE!. My machine is 28 months old.
CALL 18002531301 AND TELL THEM YOU HAVE THE F 1 CODE PROBLEM. THEY HAVEN'T CALLED THIS A RECALL, BUT THEY ARE CALLING IT A CUSTOMER AWARENESS PROBLEM.

Thank you so much for posting your solution of the F02 error code. I was having the same problem and noticed that my clothes smelled like mold and I didn't understand why. Anyway, my husband "cleaned the filter". He found four socks.
Awhile back, I noticed that I was missing a lot of socks. One day I pulled the gray flap in the washer and found around 15 socks! I now check that flap after every wash.
Again, thanks for posting your solution. It was an easy fix and it saved us $$.
