Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I can't load more than a couple of things at a time or the system will not drain...what could I be doing wrong
I would recommend you check the drain pump to ensure its not clogged with debris. The following link explains how:
A clogged drain pump is the number one cause of slow drain issues on this model washer. Also make sure the drain hose is not kinked and that there is enough space between the drain hose and standpipe opening to allow for a proper air gap. All of these conditions can cause drainage problems. If you do find anything in the drain pump, keep in mind that it doesn't take much to cause irrepairable damage. You may still end up with a pump that runs, but may not be pumping water as it should. If it comes to that, you may have to replace the drain pump. Please post back and let me know what you find.
I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
