SOURCE: Water Leak inside drum
That's because the water fills from around the door bellow via the dispenser. Any small water leakage will probably go unoticed because it drains into the seam in the rubber boot into the wash tub UNDER the wash basket. As it accumulates, it will eventually fill to a point where it is visible in the wash basket. It sounds like you have a water inlet valve that is failing. That's the only way water gets into the washer. It passes from the the water taps, through the inlet valve, through the flowmeter and into the dispenser. If the inlet valve is leaking, you probably have a diaphragm in the valve not closing properly, or a bad solenoid. I would recomend replacing it. To access, you will need to remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top panel in place. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off. The water inlet valve is located on the left-hand side in the rear of the washer (facing from the front) where the fill hoses connect. You will need to shut off the water supply, disconnect main power, remove the electrical connections to the solenoids, remove the any hoses and finally the mounting screw to remove. If you post back with your complete model number (located aorund the door opening), I can provide you with a part number. If you have further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

The rubber seal is called the "bellow". Replacements can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, or repairclinic.com. All three sites offer great service, so shop around for the best prices.
For instructions on how to replace the bellow yourself, follow this link:
This is not a difficult repair, but it can be a bit intimidating to a beginner. If you have questions along the way, or require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: KENMORE ELITE HE3T CODE F-02
F02 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.
F02 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 F09 (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 F02 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.

OK, what you are experiencing is a timer mechanism fault. the timer motor is malfunctioning. anytime you have to manually advance the timer knob, this will signal a fault within the control mech. this is easily fixed by, replacing the timer control module. i will place a link to the actual part needed to fix this issue. you can also purchase this timer on line at this site if you wish.

TRY TURNING THE DRUM BY HAND IF IT DOES NOT MOVE YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD MOTOR IF IT MOVES VERY EASILY YOU HAVE A BROKEN BELT. IF IT MOVES WITH SOME RESISTANCE TRY CHECKING THE VOLTAGE AT THE MOTOR IT BE A BAD WIRE

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
