Question and Answers

Q:

F2 error continues to show up. 11045986404 Kenmore Elite Residential washer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the F2 error code you're receiving on the Kenmore Elite washer, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.

The "F2" fault code indicates it's taking too long to drain the tub of water in order to reset the pressure switch. The problem is that the washer is not always able to drain water so that the water level switch can reset. This can happen if the wrong type of detergent is used or if you are using too much. There could also be restriction in the drain pump too. You only need use about two tablespoons of detergent in front loading washers. Start the washer without adding any detergent to see if there are any suds. If you find suds without adding any detergent would verify that too much detergent is being used and is not likely rinsing out completely from the previous washes.
Here are a couple of other suggestions if the detergent doesn't seem to be the issue, be sure to unplug the power source before making any of these checks.
 
  1. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  2. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  3. If the above information doesn't help, then the pump will need to be replaced.
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thank you for your question.  The Control Lock feature is control by the Drain/Spin button.  Press and hold the Drain/Spin button for good 3 second count.  The control lock light should toggle off.   I hope this helps.  Reply below with any additional questions.

From the description you give of the problem you will need to replace the 8182862 water valve to fix this problem.

This would be a great do-it-yourself project.

The valve 8182862 can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect for about $60 dollars.

Remember to unplug the washer before starting any repair.

The images below will help you access the valve by removing the top panel.

If you need motivation think of the $129 dollars you're saving by doing-it-yourself.

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.
