I have been having the same issue after looking into it you need to remove the front access cover and clear the pump filter. When it gets clogged the motor starts to over heat and this error cycle is to prevent the motor from overheating. Clean the filter let the machine cool and retry!! Good luck

Have you looked behind the bellow under the folds to make sure there's no rips or tears? The bellow could appear okay on the outside, but still could have a tear somewhere out of plain view. I had this happen to me before.
The inner seal from the bellow to the tub could also be loose now. If you said a garment got stuck and the washer continued through the cycle, this could have loosen the seal where it attaches to the wash tub. You would need to tighten the band clamp around the facing of the tub if this is the case.
A good way in determining where the leak may be coming from is to remove the lower panel under the door. Start a wash cycle and watch to see where the water is coming out.
Now...if the tub seal is loose it may require some disassembly to get to. If you're going to go the route of disassembling the washer front, and have never replaced the bellow before, it probably wouldn't hurt to replace it anyway. My rationale: It's better to disassemble the washer once, rather than possibly having to do it all over again in the near future.
You can get a replacement bellow at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" section for item number 1 (part #8540952). It only costs about $32.
If you need instructions on how to replace the bellow, just go to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks". There is a write I posted there giving step-by-step instructions. If you cannot find it, or have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

Is this a model 110.47512601 HE2 Plus? If it is, I do not see an F12 error code listed. I have a tech sheet for an HE2 Plus, but I only see an F21 error code.
There is a tech sheet inside your washer that explains all the error codes. You will have to remove the lower panel under the door to access it. Its usually mounted to the inside of the lower panel on along the interior walls of the cabinet. There will be instructions on how to enter diagnostics mode and a full list of error codes, followed by procedures to follow on how to correct. If you require further assistance in determining the source of the error, please let me know.
PS Don't tell Sears I told you where they keep their "secret" error code list. Don't you find that irritating? The repairman would have come to your home, opened the washer, and read the tech sheet right in front of you - then charged you for it. Good luck.

SOURCE: Error F28
F28 is a serial bus error from the CCU (Central Control Unit) to the MCU (Motor Control Unit).
All you need is some Electronics contact cleaner spray and a 1/4 inch socket to remove the top of the machine and the back of the machine.
The CCU is the computer looking box at the top front right hand corner.
Find connector M13, (has red marking on it and only 3 wires) disconnect it by pushing the retainer tab back and pulling gently on the connector.
Spray the contacts of the connector and computer with connector cleaner.
Then re-assemble connector.
The MCU is in the back lower left corner.
Find the connector with 3 wires and red mark, and remove this connector in the same way you did the other, spray it and re-install.
Put the back and top back on.

Error F-24 means water temperature sensor reading is out of range (below 23 degrees F or above 217 degrees F). This is caused by a failed temperature sensor. It can also be caused due to a wiring failure or a failed electronic control board could also cause this fault code. Unplug the washer & remove the kick panel in the front. Use a multimeter to check the resistance of the temperature sensor. To remove the bottom front service panel, take out the screws at the very bottom of the panel and then pull it out and down to remove it from the washer. With the panel removed, you should be able to pull the wires off of the temperature sensor at the bottom front of the washer tub. Measure the resistance across the leads of the temperature sensor. It should read around 10K ohms (10,000 ohms) of resistance at room temperature. If the reading is less than 7500 ohms then you would need to replace the sensor. If the resistance reading of the temperature sensor is fine, then the issue is with wiring failure or a bad control board. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
