Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

F02 Code -

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.

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.

Kenmore Elite front load washer (model: 110 42936200) won't spin. It makes a buzzing/humming sound when it should be spinning. Any suggestions?


F2 mean that you have a drainage problem and could be that the pump is clogged. I believe the pump can be accessed from the front of the washer. Also make sure electrical connections are secure. Make sure no hoses are clogged or kinked anywhere.

I have a Kenmore HE3t washer than continues to stop during the cycle and flash the F2 error code even after cleaning out lines, hoses, trap, boot and replacing the drain pump.


It is possible that the brushes on the motor that spins the drum are worn down. The drum will start and stop when this happens. Check the brushes.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 model 44832 200 washer. Will spin sometimes, but doesn't seem to get to full speed. Often won't spin at all and gets F02 error, but it does roll during wash/rinse cycles. ...


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.

Hi please go to this above link, it is all explained at length what is going on and what to do.

This error code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle.
If a "Sud" or "Sd" error code is displayed, or if you can see excessive suds in the window:
There are too many suds in the washing machine. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sud" or "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the tumbling and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This pause and rinsing are necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds. See the animation below for more information.
  • If you see "Sud" or "Sd" with the Rinse status light on, the washer is in the process of removing suds. Let the cycle continue.
  • If you see "Sud" or "Sd" and the Cycle Complete light is on, the washer detected too many suds during the cycle and your load may not be fully rinsed or water may not be fully removed. You may want to select a Rinse/Spin cycle for further rinsing.

I would assume that you are using HE detergent if not the pump could go into a suds lock. You may have a bad drain pump. The other options could be possibly a bad central control unit. (however these are very expensive) or possibly a door lock issue but usually you will get a door lock error.

Whirlpool Front Loader will not drain or spin


Based upon your description, the drain pump has either failed or become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel (three screws along the bottom). There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris

If you need further assistance, let me know

Humming noise during spin cycle


Strangely enough, the electronics in the motor drive circuits are quite hardy. Suggest if motor does agitate but not spin, check the motor brushes and see what length and condition they are in.Have had to replace brushes on many occasion.If you have a motor that has a capacitor then check the cap. It could be defective.
