Code F on Kenmore Elite HE t3

I am getting a code F on my control panel. It always comes up at the end of the cycle when there is only 2 minutes left of the cycle. It doesn't seem to have enough get up and go to drain the water. When I push the start button on the start of the cycle, it sort of makes a bzzz sound instead of a click sound. Almost as if it isn't going into gear or something. HELP.

    checked the filter wasnt clogged and it still doesn't drain the washer still blinks f 02 on it please need help!!

    My Knemore Elite HE3 will not drain and almost continuously switches to F02 error at the end, if not during a wash cycle.

    Filter is clear. Drain hose in the machine and to the outflow drain are 'yucky' but clear.

    Pump appears to work - spins - and impeller blades look intact.

    What else could be the problem?

Mommy, the F code should be followed by a number such as F 02, F 11, something like that. What I think you need to do is check the filter, it may be clogged. Remove the bottom panel by removing the 3 screws on the bottom and pulling it down and off. Right in front you will see the pump and filter. The filter cover just unscrews and the filter will pull out. See if there is a bunch of lint and junk blocking the drain flow. If so, clean it and give it another try. back.

I don't know if the person named Mommy ever mentioned your solution worked for her or not, but I had the same problem and just fixed my washer following your instructions. Thank you very much for a very helpful post.

I have an f6 code and the machine will not operate once it comes up

The F6 error code means that the computer on the control didnt detect that the motor reached a high speed on the spin cycle, sometimes it thinks the washer didnt spin fast enough because of a loose wire connection either on the motor or the control boards (motor &machine control) if you find that the washer did actually spin at high speed (clothes dont come out sopping wet at the end of cycle) the wire connections or the motor control board will be the potential causes of the F6 error code. Try unplugging the machine for five minutes to let the computer reset then try again. Next check the control panel wires. f6 code flashing on display Kenmore Elite HE3 Washing Machine

Model 110.45962.400 code comes up f 06

The following link explains the "F06" error code on a Kenmore Elite:

In a nutshell, the error is an indication of a Motor Speed problem. This means there is a communications problem between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Drive Motor or Motor Control Unit (MCU).

However, before assuming there is a problem, unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes. In some cases the washer can experience momentary computer glitches. The 30 minute interval is necessary to reset the computer. Sometimes this is all that is required to clear some error codes.
If the error code returns following a reset, follow the advice given in the link to determine the fault.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.
