Resolved Question:

i have a kenmore elite front load washer quiet pak that keeps stopping mid cycle with F20

F20 means the unit isn't detecting water entering the machine quick enough. Start the washer and turn it to cold and hot water. Make sure you are getting a good flow from both settings. If not then replace the electronic water valve (the part that the fill hoses connect to on the back of your washer) assuming your washer is getting good water pressure.

If you are getting good water flow on both cold and hot water settings then your pressure switch is bad and will need to be replaced.

It just keeps shutting off w/ F 20 ?? Its only 2 months old- water lines are open in back all good there

it sounds like your pressure switch is bad or the water valve is bad, if the unit is only 2 months old then I highly recommend calling warranty as it will cost you money to fix it any other way and will void your warranty.
