Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
My washing machine started doing funny things in the middle of a load of laundry. First it was give me a (F2) signal in the window that tells you time remaining. So I hit the pause/cancel button and then the start button again. It washed for a little time then did it again. I did the same thing and eventually was able to finish the load. Now I have another load in and it ran for a little bit and now it is giving me a SUD in the same window! What the heck is this machine trying to tell me?!
"F2" is a Long Drain error code, which indicates you are having a problem with either the drain pump or the drain hoses. You will need to check the drain pump and drain lines for obstructions. To do this, follow these steps:
If you check the pump and hoses and the problem still persists, replace the drain pump. The part can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number (located around the door opening) and look for item #10 under the "Pump and Motor" heading. If the part is not available you can also find it at the following websites:
repairclinic.com - item #1200164
pcappliancerepair.com - search by part #280187
I hope this helps you.
