Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Doesn't seem to be spinning or anything. We have the F02 code and the washer seems to be humming during the rinse cycle but not spinning. The tub does move after the rinse cycle but the beep and F02 code indicates that the rinse is not getting completely done. The SUDS code also show up. Help please.
The following link explains the "F02" error on a Kenmore Elite:
More commonly, you have a clog in the drain pump. I would recommend starting there first. The link I provided gives a follow-on link that describes how to clean out the drain pump of debris. I would also recommend you check all drain hoses for kinks and clogs. If you clear the pump and the error returns, there's a good chance you will need to replace the pump. It doesn't take much to damage the small impeller. The pump may run, but it may not be pumping correctly. If you discover that you need a new pump, replacements can be found on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number (located around the door opening) and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading for (I believe) item number 10. This was the cheapest place I could find the pump. If you wish to check other sites, use the part number provided on the Sears website for your search.
I hope you find this information helpful and that it doesn't come to replacing parts. If it does, however, it's not a terrribly expensive repair if you perform this yourself. I can also provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to replace the pump, if necessary. Let me know if you have questions, and/or require additional assistance.

he F02 message is a long drain error and it may mean the pump is clogged or bad. You don't provide a lot of detail about if the water is draining out or not but the first thing to check for this error is the drain pump.
The image below shows how to access the pump and remove the filter. This may be your only problem. With the access panel removed you can also make sure the pump is running. Remember to unplug the washer before removing the access panel.
Check the pump for the F02 and make sure you're using HE detergent and there's not excessive suds.
