Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
Recently, I experienced an issue with my Whirlpool Duet front loading washing machine where it would stop mid cycle and flash an "F02" error code. Based on the many postings on the internet, I cleaned all the plumbing and checked the pump for obstructions. This did not correct the issue. The next recommended measure was to replace the CCU as it was likely an issue with the control board. Still no luck. I also replaced the pressure switch which measures the amount of water in the machine. After spending nearly $350 on parts, it turned out to be as simple as cleaning the plastic housing at the rear of the machine into which the hose for the pressure switch connects. It had become completely clogged and was not allowing the machine to correctly sense the water being drained. This was in turn causing the drain pump to continually cycle until it gave up after 8 minutes and displayed the "F02" message. There is a single #10 torx head screw holding the plastic housing in place. Once removed, disconnect the vacuum line from the other end and clean. Then replace on the machine and reconnect the vacuum line. Very simple fix.
