The Machine does not know the lid is shut.... there is an arm connected to the lid... that arm runs just inside the the top cover and presses a button to signal the lid is down.. some where along the line the arm isnt pushing the button..take off the top cover and it should be an easy fix

"F22" is a door latch error. It can mean any of the following:
1. The door latch mechanism is broken. Inspect the door latch to ensure it is intact and not broken. Verify the electrical connections are making good contact.
2. The door latch hook (located on the door) is broken or worn. If the latch hook is damaged, it may not allow the door latch to engage and lock properly.
3. The interconnecting wiring between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the door latch are loose, broken, or not making good contact. The CCU is the main computer for the washer. You will need to remove the top panel of the washer in order to access. Simply remove the retaining screws located in the back of the washer and the panel will slide back, then lift off.
4. Defective CCU. The CCU controls nearly all the functions of the washer, including the door latch. If the CCU fails, the proper lock/unlock signals do not get sent to the latch mechanism.
Determing how to troubleshoot the CCU and Door Latch is in the technical data sheet included with your washer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower toe panel directly below the door. If the tech sheet isn't behind the toe panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. I do not have the procedure memorized, but there are some tests you can try to determine if the problem is the CCU or latch.
If you determine the latch needs replaced, the following link may assist you:
The procedures I provided are for Kenmore Elite series front loaders, which are the larger cousing to the HE2. The steps are nearly the same except for how to remove the door gasket from the front facing of the washer. The HE2 models are glued on instead of using a wire hoop (unless yours is a later model and has been modified). You can use a metal putty knife to carefully peel the gasket loose and reseal it when completed. A good appliance gasket cement (found at any appliance parts retailer) will work. You can also use a plumber's sealant. Just make sure you use a pliable rubber cement. Do not use super glue.
Some prefer to try to work through the top of the washer and avoid removing the gasket. This may be possible with the larger top loaders, but the smaller models are usually a bit more difficult to access.
Replacement parts can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

If the machine agitates, you probably have a bad pump. This is pretty straightforward repair, and I'm sure I can help you if you think you can do this yourself. Follow this link to a previous explanation on cabinet removal and you will find the pump right in front of you when you get the cabinet off. The part is relatively inexpensive to obtain from a local appliance part store. Changing is very simple. Hope this helps you :)

usually the softener is dispensed when the machine goes into the spray rinse if this is not happening it is blocked and the dispenser cap needs to be cleaned hope this helps
