Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Stops after the wash cycle and displays F20 in time remaining
Ok, I found 2 solutions for this problem, I tried the first one,and it really seemed to work, but I think I will do the second one too. First, if you have metal flood safe hoses, you need to look for debrisblocking the filter at both ends. I kept checking the screens at thewasher end and not seeing anything, but there was debris located at thewater supply end, stuck in the flood safe device that is in the metalhose. Also, Flood safe hoses say to turn the water on to fullpressure, but sometimes that can activate the flood safe device, soonly turn your water supply on half way. Make sure that the hoses areon right as well, the flood safe device needs to be at the end with thewater supply, not the washer end. You will be able to see the device(it looks like a little sieve) inside the hose.
Another cause of this problem can be the filter IN your washer, itis located in the front just under the front bottom removable panel. If you have a pet in the house, definitely check this out, a lot ofhair gets stuck in that. Just unscrew the front bottom panel, and thenit is right in the middle at the bottom, a cone shaped filter. Get atowel, because there will be water in there, too. Check out this linkwithpictures: http://enginerdandwife.com/2007/03/kenmore-elite-h3-washer-error-code-hf.html
