Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, just 'F' on its own is not on my list of Kenmore (Whirlpool) error decodes ;-0(
Just in case (!) I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

When pressing start on my frigidaire washer LTT2940FE1, It says pause and won't start.


Reset the unit at the household circuit breaker and retry. PAU means the unit is paused either by a blockage and the sensor won't let the unit continue, or it was manually paused by a button press.

What does ds mean on Samsung high efficiency washing machine


A dS code means that the door was opened during the cycle. (At least this is true for the WF210ANW/XAA washer.) Close the door tightly and restart the wash cycle.

If the error persists, you probably have a problem with the door latch.
Samsung has the manual and trouble-shooting FAQs for many of their appliances here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/ . Click on Washers & Dryers (in the rightmost column) then use the drop-down menus to select Washers and then the model.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your washer for additional assistance.

My x5 3.0i 2006 t won't start this morning but temperature, gas level clock were wrong so I turn the engine off and restart a couple times it won't start and I saw message trans. false safe...


no. I'd suggest to disconnect a battery for 15 mins, reconnect, wait for 5 mins and try to restart. If it doesn't help (sometimes there's a program block to prevent stealing equipment) call a dealer

What does the LE flashing mean? Water won't drain out of washer.


LE means that the motor sensor has failed and needs a technician to come out and repair the unit. To remove the water, turn on the unit, press the spin speed button once and press start. It will drain the water out and spin the drum.

What does it mean when the washer flases F


An error code reading "F" indicates an electrical problem and "SUD" means that the "suds routine" to eliminate excess sudsing has been activated. The washer should restart once extra suds have been removed. Water and drainage problems usually mean you should check the hoses for any kinks or obstructions, according to the owner's manual.

An "F" code may require you to drain and start a spin cycle to drain the washer of excessive water.
Hope this helps.
