Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3t Front Load Washer
When I run the washer empty it does not give me any errors, only when I run it with items like towels.
I have already cleared the trap, tub drain and pump.
Anyone have any ideas.
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F2" is flashed.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F2 error code will be displayed.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.

If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.
These are the possibilities for that error code at one web site:
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. * Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
* Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
* Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
* If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.
F2 is long drain.
Just because it came up doesn't mean there's a problem, it simply means there was a failure during the cycle, if it returns on a regular basis, you have a problem.
F2 error could be caused by the over use of soap, you need to make sure your using 2 tablespoons of HE soap, 1/4 cap at the most.
Over sudsing, could cause the water pump to run longer, the pump is designed for 15 min duty cycle which means, 15 minutes on to 45 minutes off. The computer may sense too much soap, and continue to pump. HE soap will cure that, along with SUD error, possible F9 (overflow condition), you may also notice the timing is wrong, HE soap works well in these machines and F/l washer go hand in hand
if the F2 returns the remove the 3 torx screws from the bottom kick panel, and remove the kick panel, right there in the middle you will see a big round handle, turn it and then slide it out, have some towels ready, there will be some water in there, and check to see if you have any thing in there that will slow water flow, tooth picks and other "floating" items may jam the impeller.
