Does this occur on all cycles? Usually a draining problem stems from an issue with the power supply,
the position of the drain hose or a clog in the drain filter.
F variables (other than FH, F02, and SUD) just means a electrical problem. Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Turn off the water supply at the faucets, which are usually recessed in a square compartment in the wall behind the Kenmore Elite washer. Unscrew the inlet hoses that connect the water faucets to the washer. There is a mesh screen inside the hose. Make sure it is not clogged.
Uncurl the water hose if it is wound too many times, restricting water flow. Remove any kinks or bends in the hose that could be blocking water flow.
Re-select cycle and select HOLD TO START. If the problem remains, call for service, because could sound like perhaps the control board go to bad. Unplug it first,
let it discharge (usually around 4 min) and then have a go at it again.
I hopethat it will helpto solve theproblem, orwill serveas a starting pointto initiate adiagnostic work.
If you want to completely disconnect it, please do it in this order::
>Make sure that there is no laundry in the machine
>Turn the machine off
>Unplug it from the wall socket and secure the cord to the top of the washer with a piece of duct tape.
> Turn the water off at the faucets that supply the washing machine.
> Loosen each hose and turn it into a bucket or sink to drain it as much as possible.
>Secure it with th4e opening up with duct tape to the side or back of the washer so that you do not drain leftover water all over the floor.
>Finally do the same with your drain hose. You may have to pull the washer out from the wall to do this, but you need to pull the drain hose out of the drain, and bend it to drain to a bucket or sink.
And then secure it to the washer as above with the opening higher than the tub.
> At this point you can move the washer to an area outside or wherever you want to take it. If you are moving it outside, you can disconnect the water hoses and drain them completely and even keep them if they are still good, and you are replacing the washer. You can also remove the drain hose completely if desired.

Most washer hook up have a drain built into them. Normally the drain is about an inch and a half hole between the two faucets. The hooked end of the big hose just slips down into that hole. If there was a washer there there must also be a drain there at one time. The big hose is where all the water comes out of the washer,
would check the drain pump for a clog. Remove the front panel of the
washer, the pump is at the front bottom right side, with 2 hoses
attached. Now either get the water out of the tub with a shop vac, or
pinch off the hose connecting the tub to the drain pump. Take the top
hose off, and stick your finger down the hole and feel for anything.
also you can stick a screw driver down the pump and see if the impeller
Is you water discharge hose still connected to the drain in the wall? If not, place it in the drain and make sure it is secured and won't pop back out of the drain (tie it down to faucet next to drain). If the hose is connected to the drain, then the hose must have came undone inside the washer, or has a crack in it. Check condition of hose and look inside washer to make sure it is connected.
