Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite HE3 washer- 1 year old

Read your comment for the similar another had w/this F-02 warning for this type of washer. Very helpful, thank you. I wonder if we could also ask about our F-02 warning. We have researched the drain hose and found no problem, have washed bath rugs in the washer a few times, (wont anymore) what else could be the problem? We are currently scheduled to have a Sears repairman come and pay a base fee of $65.00!! How can we avoid being taken advantage of by the repairman?
Thank you for your help!

    Yes! The reservior at the bottom of the washer was clogged w/ baby socks and beads and small toys!! We removed them (thank you for the 411) and have since had no F-02 warnings!!!

    Yeah!!

    So far so good. Thank you!!!

If all you have checked is the drain hose, you need to check the drain pump reservoir and the drain hose PRIOR to the pump (coming from the bottom of the wash tub). Rugs are notorious for collecting and holding large amounts of dirt. This dirt will pack together in the drain lines and pump and clog it up. I hope I'm not too late with this post. I was hoping to save you some money. Let me know if the helps.

Error code f 02


I think it's a slow drain fault. But would need full model number to say for sure. Still it wouldn't hurt to check the drain pump for crud. Here are some vids that might help. Don't worry too much about brand specifics. Many brands share identical and similar parts.

I have a kenmore elite HE3 washer. I was getting the sud error and then eventually F02. I cleaned out all the drain lines and pump filter trap and this did not help. I've now replaced the pump


I endevor to purchase a new unit. I've had the same electrical issue with the "F" variable coming up for EACH cycle. I've pressed the Pause/Cancel button and attempted to resume the cycle. While that did work, again, the "F" would come up and the cycle disrupted. I think I will end up paying quite a bit to have it serviced. My washer is 7 years old and I've had it serviced twice to date. I intend on purchasing new in the New Year, a Samsung or LG.

Kenmore HE3 stuck in delay cycle and won't unlock or cancel


YOu more than likely have suds in your washer, or an extremely unbalanced load. push the pause cancel button twice, that should unlock the washer. open the washer, and look inside. Is there a lot of suds, or towels that are tangled up? If so, add some fabric softener to the wash tub and do a rinse drain spin (for suds) for the extremely unbalanced load, take the towels (or what ever load you are doing) and put about 1/2 of them in. I have the same washer and have experienced this "problem" once or twice in 7 years. And those were the two culprits. Hope that helps
