Error code F3 on a Kenmore Elite Model #11020052992 washer

I've taken my washer to a repair place and an error code of F3 is showing up. I don't have the manual so they don't know what it means. I haven't been able to find a manual anywhere.

I see James provided you with excellent information. The first link he provided has information on the F3 error code which indicates a lid switch failure. The lid switch can be purchased from

Sears PartsDirect

. I provided you with a direct link tot he manual below. I hope this helps.
