Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
You may have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Usually this means the drain pump is clogged. The following link explains how to access and check the drain pump on a Kenmore Elite:
You may also have to remove the hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Small items (such as socks) can get lodged in this area and prevent the drain pump from functioning.
If anything gets lodged in the drain pump impeller for any significant period of time, it can cause irreparable damage to the pump. Since the pump is supposed to pump at a required volume to complete the drain cycle within 8 minutes, it can start causing error codes to appear if it is pumping too slow or not at all. Some of the error codes that may occur are "F02", "F21" or "SUD". If this is the case, you may have to replace the drain pump. The following link explains how:
Replacements can be purchased on line at any of the following web sites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. Hopefully you won't require a new pump.
If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

• 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
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.
