Among some 400 million KsKl pairs produced in e+e- annihilations at DAFNE, about 6500 each of Ks->pi+e-nubar and Ks->pi-e+nu decays have been observed with the KLOE detector. From these, the ratio G(Ks->pienu)/G(Ks->p+p-(g))=(10.19+-0.13)10-4 is obtained, improving the accuracy on BR(Ks->pienu) by a factor of four and providing the most precise test of the DeltaS=DeltaQ rule. From the partial width Gamma(Ks->pienu), a value for f+(K0)Vus is obtained that is in agreement with unitarity of the

The form-factor slope agrees with recent results from semileptonic Kl and K+ decays. These are the first measurements of the charge asymmetry and form-factor slope for semileptonic Ks decays.
