Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
This is a water intake code, it usually indicates a blockage. To troubleshoot this code, F20 (water inlet problem, no water or insufficient water supply). Select stop twice to cancel the cycle. Disconnect the power supply, (unplug the machine). Check to see that the water faucets are turned completely on, and that you are getting water out of the ends that connect to the washer. Check the screens at the inlet hose connections on the washer. (the inlets, where the hose screws on have small cone shaped screens in them). Make sure the inlet hoses are not kinked. This one is unlikely, but it is in the repair manual so don't laugh, ..Make sure the inlet hoses are not frozen. If all of this is good and you still get the F20 code after conducting the troubleshooting tips, your clog is inside the washer. You will then need to take the front off and clean the filter, (an easy operation). I found a link with pics that shows a homeowner doing this with step by step instructions and I found it to be correct, but funny as all get out. I am going to provide the link so you can laugh about this too. I wish you the best of luck and hope that you find this solution very helpful!
Enjoy this! His code is HF, the proceedure is the same.

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.

The particular model number is not listed in the list of
manuals of omega washing machine.Please call the customer support for
assistance.However given bellow are some settings of the washing machine,which
is extracted from a website.Hope it helps:-
7 is warm wash delicates (warm cycles then it runs through
the number 10 delicate cold cycle too)
10 is cold wash delicates
1 is the longest regular cycle
I normally wash with only the cold tap on, 3 for dirty washes, 4 for regular washes.
Soap goes in the middle slot
3 Buttons from left to right
left - in to spray rinse
middle - in to NOT spin dry
right - in for NOT boost heat (or maybe it has no booster and it is just in for cold wash - not sure)
when standing in front of it, reaching over the back, the left connector is cold and the right connector is for hot water.
