Get code F_1 on HE2 washer during cycle and washer stops.

Resolved Question:

Get code F_1 on HE2 washer during cycle and washer stops. Pushing STOP button allows it to continue but clothes come out much too wet. Any ideas of cause?

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

F1 is a very bad error on this HE2 kenmore washer. It means that the main control board under the top panel in the front right corner has an internal short. There really isn't anything you can do but to order and replace this control board in order to fix the issue. The part is normally about $150 or so.
