displays error codes. Though designed to indicate the nature of the
error, to anyone without a copy of a washer manual handy, the codes
might as well be Martian cryptography. Luckily, the Manage My Life
website has partnered with Kenmore and made manuals for each make and
model of Kenmore washer available online. The error codes are
differentiated between top and front-loading machines.
FH Error Code
When a front-loading Kenmore residential washer displays the "FH"
error code, the machine is experiencing a water-inlet problem. A
water-inlet problem is the result of the washer receiving too little
water to operate. The Kenmore owner's manual suggests five home remedies
for this problem: Check that the water faucets
connected to the washer are turned on; that the inlet screens in the
washer's connection hose are not clogged; that the hose is not kinked;
and that the hose is not frozen. If none of these problems are present,
turn off the washer, unplug it, plug it back in, and restart the
FL Error Code
The "FL" error code on a top-loading Kenmore residential washer
indicates that the machine has over filled. When a residential Kenmore
washer is overfull, it will beep every 10 seconds. The pump will cycle
on and off every 30 seconds in an attempt to rectify the problem. To
stop the pump or restart the machine, either disengage and then
re-engage the power source to the washer, or push the overfill reset
switch. If water continues to enter the machines after the "FL" error
has appeared, shut off the inlet flow faucet or the machine will overflow.
F02 Error Code
The "F02" error code on a front-loading Kenmore residential
washer indicates that the machine is experiencing a drainage problem.
Home-remedy solutions for this error code, as suggested by the Kenmore
manual, are similar to those for the "FH" error code: Insure that the
drainage hose is not kinked, frozen, or clogged. If none of these
problems are present, check that the hose is less than 96 inches, or 8
feet, above the floor. A hose more than eight feel from the floor will
not drain properly
Check your front and rear counter-weights. They are made of concrete and start to chip away. More so the rear than the front. When you open it up look on the base and see if you have chips or chunks of concrete. I had that problem as well - also make sure you spray lube inside,check your "Spider" wheel, and belt.
I would need the complete model # to get you a breakdown showing the piece i believe to be broken and in need of replacement. I believe this Kenmore F.L. was built by Frigidaire and they have had a problem with a specific piece on this machine. I will be glad to help once you get me the full model, should be around the opening of the door.
