Error message f 09 and f 02

Okay so i have had my kenmore elite et3 for about 5yrs now and im really not sure what model number it is. i looked at all the pics listed on this website and could not find it but anyway, i really have enjoyed this washing machine up until two days ago. i put a load of clothes on and about 30 mins into washing an error code f 02 along with a beeping noise comes up. i know that f 02 means SUDS but i normally just press the rinse/drain button and everything is fine. this time NOTHING happened. it would rinse but not drain and now f 09 is flashing along with that beeping noise again. i cant cancel anything and open the door b/c its full of water. its like its not spinning or draining. PLEASE HELP!!

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.

Kenmore elite he14. What is the f14 error?


The Central Condrol Unit (CCU) receives it's data from an EEPROMonboard the CCU.
If there is an error reading this data, it will cuse this error.

A power glitch may cause this error. Try unplugging the Unit for two minutes to see if that fixes the error.
Check CCU

So its likely you'll need a new CCU board. Check your owners manual, some models have up to a 5 yr. parts warranty on that CCU.

I have an error message HF

I suspect that you are getting the FH fault code that indicates a long fill on many of the Kenmore washer models. Here are some tips that might help:
  • If you are using a Flood Save device as shown in the image below for your fill hoses, this could be causing your problem. This type of device will not work on washers.
  • Make sure that the hot and cold faucets behind the washer are both turned fully on.
  • Turn the water supply faucet off. Disconnect the hoses from the back panel of the washer. Check the inlet water supply screens on the back of the washer. Clean any deposits and debris. Thoroughly flush this area with water to keep any debris from making it past the screens and into the inlet water valves. Debris can corrupt these valves and could cause them to leak.
  • Put the ends of the fill hoses into a bucket and briefly turn on the water supply faucets to check the water pressure and volume flowing through the fill hoses. If the pressure or volume is low, check the hoses for clogs. If the hoses are okay, then you will need a plumber to fix the water supply to the washer.
  • A failed water level pressure switch or flow meter could cause this problem on some models of Kenmore washers.
  • Check the installation of your drain hose. Make sure that it complies with installation guidelines. An improperly installed drain system can result in the siphoning of fill water through the drain during the filling of the tub.
If these tips do not help, resubmit your question with additional details
