Hi


Error code F03 on Kenmore means that there is draining problem or a filling issue with the washer. Check if the washer is draining; also make sure that it is not kinked or clogged. If the drain hose is not kinked then next thing to check is Drain Pump. Check out this link to disassemble your washer---

Now, check the drain pump for any blockages. Make sure that you have a container to collect water when you open drain hoses from the pump as it has a lot of water inside.


If the drain pump is fine then it is an issue with filling of washer. Check whether washer is filling and the pressure is fine. Also, make sure you check the softener dispenser. Pull the dispenser drawer out and clean it thoroughly. Make sure that the siphon hole in the dispenser is clear and not restricted or plugged. Please post back for any further assistance.

What does code f03 mean


An F03 error code on many front load washers indicates a failure to drain properly. You can usually clear this fault code by pressing the pause/cancel button. Next, check the drum for water. If the drum still has water in it, restart a drain and spin cycle. This should drain the water from the tub.

If your washer will not drain, check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. Make sure that the drain hose is not stuck more than 8 inches down the stand pipe.

If you do not hear your drain pump running, you may have a problem with your control or your drain pump. Also, if your pump is making a loud noise, it may be clogged. These problems would require service by a technician.

Front load frigidaire washer w/ error code F03....doesnt want to drain. Tried spin/drain, delicates, and normal and all end up with F03!! Please help!!! Thanks Royce


The F03 code is a problem with your water system. your inlet valves may have failed.

Open up the bottom panel and you will find a tech sheet that explain the codes and gives trouble shooting techniques. here is the service manual, good luck, hope this helps......

My front load Kenmore washer has a f03 code on the screen. It is not draining the water and it is not doing a max spin. What do you think I need to do?


F03 error code means that there is either fill problem, a drain problem or a water level pressure switch failure .

First ensure the machine is filling.
When the drain system is causing the F03 error do the following.

Ensure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged.

If the drain hose is OK check the drain pump.

Start unplugging washer from main and remove the service panel at the bottom.

Follow the instructions on manual to remove panel.

Access the water pump and remove the hoses, clear any blockage in there.

Use a container to collect the water, be prepared. If machine has lot of water inside, remove some water with a sponge before undoing the pump.

VCR keeps showing "F03" and doens't do anything


Your vcr seems to use the K Mech. F03 Means that the mechanism locks when unloading.
The cause of which might be the loading motor or drive, timing and most likely the mode switch.

HOTPOINT ULTIMA SUPER SILENT ( WF 860 ) 1600 SPIN SPEED.


I read that someone has a problem with F-03 on the display. I have seen this for the first time on my hotpoint wf860 1600 spin. I read the manual the only thing I can think of maybe an unbalanced load in the machine. Albeit the manual is not clear about this. P21 automatic features unbalanced load warning.
