Last night we returned to find my washer with an F2 error. As instructed in the Troubleshooting Guide. I pushed stop twice and all seemed to be well. During the middle of the night, I awoke to the beeping again with the same error message, even though the washer was empty and the lid was up. I pushed the power button and all was well.
Today, I am attempting to wash and all is well EXCEPT now I hear a beep every 40 seconds or so, and the water temperature control is going nuts. The washer is cycling OK, so I finished the first load and unplugged the washer for a few minutes thinking this would clear some memory or reset it or something. Nope. The second load is going just fine, but the beeping and temperature control flashing are still having a hay day... Please tell me there is a simple solution?
I just found out sears has a recall for the control board for the top loader. I have the same problem. I called and to my suprise they said the swap was free. 1-800-659-7026. Have your model and serial ready. located under the door. This problem has been extreemly irritating for months now and I am sure sears is still collecting huge repair bills from people. No more sears products for me either!

There should be a troubleshooting guide in your user manual that will give you the error code meaning. If you don't have the manual, perhaps you can download on on-line. Just for giggles, I would unplug the unit for a minute or so, and see if that resets the processor. It's just a thought. I hope this helps.
The F1 error code means that the computer thinks a button on the touchpad is stuck. Sometimes this can be resolved by making sure the touchpad connector fits tight into the control board. The F1 code can be cleared by pushing CANCEL/OFF. If it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced .
"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:
1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged. 2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running. 3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.
The F02 error code indicates keypad/user interface failure. Most of the time, this is caused by a problem in the keypad/user interface. It can sometimes be caused by a failed control board.You could have an intermittent problem such as a stuck key or contact. As long as the F02 is not displayed, the washer should work normally. You can continue to use it when the F02 is not displayed. It is still safe to use the washer. Sometimes this problem is caused by a loose wiring harness connection between the keypad/user interface control board and the machine control board. The F2 error code on this washer indicates a stuck button on the user interface control board. The procedure for accessing the control boards on this washer is shown in the image below. I recommend unplugging the washerand checking the wire harness connection from the user interface control board to the machine control board. Try unplugging the connections and then plugging them back in a few times. Make sure that they are plugged in correctly and then reassemble and test the washer. If the F2 is still displayed, then the user interface control board will need to be replaced.

Ok these are not the series 70, getting a model number off the door will reallllllly help. Some of these sound like the oasis. F1 is motor control or primary control failure and F 41 is a rps thermistor failure.
For the guest with the 11027086601 kenmore elite oasis here is a link for supplying me with a partial model number, much thank yous!! paste in a browser:)

Chia, this is not a good one, F2 is a keypad failure or interface mismatch. You can try a couple of things. 1. unplug the washer for a minute and see if the code returns. 2. Remove the consol to access the control board, three screws on the backside and the consol lifts up. On the right side you will see the main board. On the right side of the board, center harness will be the interface ribbon cable. Reseat it a couple of times. If this doesn't work, I believe you will have to replace the touchpad. Catriver.
