SOURCE: Kenmore elite smart Wash quiet pak 9 with an f2 code

"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This usually means the drain pump or drain lines are clogged, or you have a pump that is malfunctioning. Restarting the washer will not clear this code. The following link explains:

If you need to replace the drain pump, they can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. You can use any web source you like, but these, I have found, offer the best service and pricing. Shop all of them for the best price. Just use your model number (located around the door opening) for your search criteria.

Hopefully you won't require any parts. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Smart Wash Q Pack/Door will not lock/to start

The Tab that locks the door or click you would say is either broken or the door is out of alignment... might have to remove the tab and purchase and install a new one

The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.

The kenmore elite smart wash quiet pak 9 I opened the door and threw something else in and now a light is on thar says controls locked and it wont do anything


There should be a button on the control panel that says "open door" you need to push that button and wait for the washer to shut off before you open the door. Try pushing that button to see if that resets. My guess is that you broke the safety latch when you opened the door and it will need repair.

I have a Kenmore smart wash quiet pack 9 HE5t and when I try to turn it on it make a noise but won't turn on


Please check the motor belt , the drain pump and the inlet valve. If the noise seems to come from any of these it is possible that it trips off the circuit due to a fault and so must be confirmed.
You can remove the connection to the seperate items to confirm if the panel switches on.
