My wife and I have a Kenmore HE3T Washer that was working great up until a few weeks ago. I opened it up after not using it for a couple of days and water poured out.
I ran the drain cycle and it worked fine.
If we do several loads in a row, there is no issue. It is when we allow it to go unused for a few days that water starts to build up inside of it. There are no error codes showing up and it otherwise works fine.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Re: Slow leak in our HE 3T Washer?
Khorak, I've seen this on this model a bunch of times. The inlet valve is weeping water. You need to change it out. The top has 3 screws in the back and it will slide off toward the back. The valve sits on the left side, right up on top. Easy job, part number is 8181694. Catriver

When that happens it is often because the drum bearing is starting to go. The first symptom is a loud high pitched noise during the spin part of the cycle. As problem gets worsening you will notice that the drum will be a bit wobbly if you spin it by hand.
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.
Clean Out your Water pump filter if that is not dirty replace the water pump. f02 is Code for LD Long Drain something is clogging your water drain in the washer or your kids rock or pen got stuck and chewed up the blades on the water pump
I have the same problem. It started a few weeks ago. I did get it to work for a while by unplugging from the wall outlet. When you plug back in, you can choose one clcle and it will work. I repeated this 3 times and it went back to normal for 3 weeks until today. Trying to find a true permanent fix. unplugging and replugging resets something, will work temporarily
"f6" error code means that there a miss communication between mcu(motor speed control board) and ccu(central control unit). i recommend you to ohm out the motor. most likely its your motor speed control located at the bottom left of the washer good luck. replace the motor speed control board and you should be all set to go.
