Unplug your machine, remove the top panel, doublecheck all of the wires are securely connected. Sometimes the wires are loosened due to the vibration of the washer. Hope this works for you! It worked for our Kenmore Elite H3 when no cycles would start and flashed the error code "dL/F" (door lock failure).

After the complete wash cycle is finished, the clothes are still soaking wet sometimes. This is not an every load problem.

SOURCE: keep getting f2 signal on

F2 and F02 error are one and the same. My daughter was doing a load of towels in my Kenmore Elite HE3t front loading machine, when I went back to put them in the dryer the washer had a load of water in it and an error reading of F02. Checked the manual Could not find anything wrong with the Drain Hose?
 
These are the possibilities for that error code at one web site:
 
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.* Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
* Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
* Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
* If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.
F02 is long drain.
Just because it came up doesn't mean there's a problem, it simply means there was a failure during the cycle, if it returns on a regular basis, you have a problem.

F02 error could be caused by the over use of soap, you need to make sure your using 2 tablespoons of HE soap, 1/4 cap at the most.
Over sudsing, could cause the water pump to run longer, the pump is designed for 15 min duty cycle which means, 15 minutes on to 45 minutes off. The computer may sense too much soap, and continue to pump. HE soap will cure that, along with SUD error, possible F09 (overflow condition), you may also notice the timing is wrong, HE soap works well in these machines and F/l washer go hand in hand
if the F02 returns the remove the 3 torx screws from the bottom kick panel, and remove the kick panel, right there in the middle you will see a big round handle, turn it and then slide it out, have some towels ready, there will be some water in there, and check to see if you have any thing in there that will slow water flow, tooth picks and other "floating" items may jam the impeller.

SOURCE: F11 & FDL error codes several times per load.

HI. this is a door lock error code.

A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it 6 times before displaying the error.

Potential Causes

• Door Lock Mechanism broken or removed from the Door
• Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly
• Check the wire harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Door Lock/Switch Assembly Failure

Replace failed component.((Which will be a failed door lock assembly in this case))

Kenmore elite he3t where is the lint trap?


Raise up your washer slightly or feel for 3 screws right under the front, bottom. Unscrew these and pull down - you will find the lint trap. Be prepared for water, and since the model is 2002 - immense junk too!
Pl say so if helped!!

Need part number for rubber boot on my kenmore elite HE3t washer


The part number is 8182119 and can be viewed at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look for item number 5 under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading. In addition, you may not need them, but just in case, you may consider the inner and outer bellow clamps that hold the door seal in place. This are items 6 and 14 under the same heading. Sometimes they become damaged. If you need instructions on how to replace the door bellow, the following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

If you have any questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: You can find this part a little cheaper at appliancepartspros.com. Just use the "Search By Part Number" selection as your search criteria.

To keep the new bellow from mildewing, it is recommended by the manufacturer that you leave the washer door open while not in use and to periodically clean the bellow. Pull back the rubber folds in the door and make sure you do not have anything stuck that will cause odors and mildew. Small garments such as socks and underwear can commonly get stuck in this area of the door. Also, if you do not routinely use hot water, it is recommended that you run a "clean" cycle with a small amount of bleach about once a month to kill any bacteria.

Questions about the Bellow?


If the door bellow is twisted, it may just be a simple matter of a clamp that has come loose allowing the bellow to shift. If its the front clamp located around the door opening, this can easily be resolved by removing the clamp, repositioning the bellow and reinserting the clamp. If its the rear clamp, however, you may have to remove the front of the washer to gain full access to it. There is an aligment mark (arrow) on the bellow at the 12 o'clock postion where it meets the wash tub. You need to make sure the arrow is pointing straight up. The following link explains how to replace a bellow:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

Use this link even if you do not decide to replace the bellow. It provides good information on how the bellow is installed. Bottom line, if the bellow is not leaking, and you can resolve the twist, you do not need to replace it. Make sure you inspect for cracks or tears. As far as the additional components are concerned, inspect the clamps that you have before buying new ones. I've only had to replace these clamps on rare occasion. Last of all, "Yes", this is a job for a do-it-yourselfer. Its a little time consuming, but can be accomplished easily by following the link I provided. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS You may check repairclinic.com to see if they carry the bellow at a lower price. They offer competitive pricing and often carry the SAME part for less.

Worn out bellows


The bellow definitely should not deform in the manner that you describe. When you replaced the bellow, did you line it up correctly? There are alignment marks (Arrows) on the tub and the bellow to ensure it is installed correctly? If the bellow is not aligned correctly, it will twist when the tub spins. If the shocks are worn, the bellow could also deform, but you would probably experience excessive vibrating during the final spin. If you are sure the bellow is installed correctly, and wish to replace the shocks, let me know. There are four of them on your washer. I believe they are sold in pairs. If you post your complete model number (located around the door opening), I can assist you in locating parts.
