Re: Kenmore Elite HE3t
The machine control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will
shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be
unlocked after 3 minutes.
• Check Wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and
the Motor Controller, and between the Motor Controller and the Machine Control
• The Drive Motor has failed
• The Motor Controller has failed

I have a Kenmore Elite he4t front load washer that was working fine and then we moved and now it stops washing midstream and flashes an F and a H. I have to pause and restart then it will stop washing again after a few minutes and flash the same codes again. I reset again and then it stops with 1 minute left and will not drain.
We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.
the F code is a puwer outige. This is how to fix
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call
This is what an HF code is.
"FH" (Water Inlet Problem--no water or insufficient water
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.
Check the following:
Are water faucets completely turned on?
Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?
Are water inlet hoses kinked?
Are water inlet hoses frozen?
Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press
START. If the problem remains, call for service.
That is the code for a water inlet issue. Meaning "no or insufficient water supply" according to the manual.
It says to hit PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel cycle. Then unplug unit and check for:
Are faucets completely turned on?
Are screens at the inlet hose connection to washer clogged?
Are inlet hoses kinked?
And last...Are inlet hoses frozen?
After checking all those it says to plug back in, re-select cycle and press START.
If problem still comes up call for service.
I remember on another site someone had the same code coming up, all the inlet suggestions checked out OK and they had to call for service as it was something in the control panel/computer of the unit.
Hope your issue is something simple as suggested by the manual.
Take care ; )
