The errrors are generally related to one another. The "F02" error is a slow drain problem. The "SUD" gets generated because it senses air in your drain pump (due to a possible blockage). More than likely you have an obstruction in your drain pump and you will need to clean it out. This is probably the reason for the pump sounding strange too. The following link explains how:

Follow the link provided and this should be a an easy process for you. Keep in mind, however, that if there has been something obstructing your drain pump for any significant length of time, you may have damaged to pump. It doesn't take much to cause irrrepairable damage (I know, its a crappy design). If you clean out the drain pump reservoir, and the error(s) reappear, you will have to replace the drain pump.

If you require a replacment pump, you can purchase a new one on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the pump can be located under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading as item number 10 (part #8181684). For instructions on how to replace the pump, follow this link:

Hopefully, it won't come to the point of replacing the pump, but you have the information if you need to. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

My duet keeps giving me the "F02" code and I have removed and cleaned the drain hose and all is good on that end. Is there something else I can do?


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

F02 error then suds error


Removed the hose going to the pressure switch. When I blew in it, it was plugged. Blowing on it removed what ever blockage going to the tub. It cycled fine after that.

Kenmore Elite washer HE4t keeps giving us a F02 error code??


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. The pump should also be checked. Remove the hoses from the pump and using a flashlight, look into the suction port on the pump. Make sure there are no obstructions (like the occasional stray sock). Also check the pump impellers and make sure no blades are missing/broken and that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are missing/broken or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

F02 fault on a hot point washer says motor jammed


Hi, 

I suspected suds build up, so I tried both regular wash cycles (e.g. Normal) and Rinse and Drain cycles multiple times to clear suds in the system, but still received the F02 error. Sometimes the SUD error message came up, but not consistently.

I ran the built-in Diagnostics tests. It made it to C:06 then got stuck.

In both scenarios above, the washing machine continued to try to pump water out, despite the fact that all the water had already been drained. After 8 or so minutes, the F02 error came on. As I understand it, if the pressure switch detects either water or suds, it commands the drain pump to continue. After 8 or so minutes, if it's still detecting water or suds, the F02 error is displayed.

I performed the following with no success:
1. Check Wire Harness connections - OK
2. Check Drain pump. – OK, as water drains at a rapid rate
3. Check Drain pump motor - OK, as water drains at a rapid rate
4. Check that the Drain hose and Drain Pump Filter is clear of
foreign objects. – OK, ran a cable through both hose assemblies (exterior and interior) and not blocked.
5. Check the CCU – appears to function normally.
6. There were no kinks in the hoses, nor was the height of the pump beyond what the manual recommends.

After more diagnostics and troubleshooting, I found that the Pressure Switch was stuck and reported the SUDS state (continuity made between contacts 11 and 14 on the Pressure Switch itself). I ran many Rinse and Normal cycles with no detergent and still got this F02 error. I checked the state of the Pressure Switch’s Empty and Level 1 contacts which intermittently reported the correct water level condition (EMPTY and Level 1). In all cases contacts 11 and 14 (SUDS) were continuously made (connected) irrespective of water level, rinse conditions and the use of no detergent.

I removed the pressure switch and tested it by blowing into the inlet and did hear the switch click, so it seemed to work properly. Given the diagnostics above, I concluded that the pressure switch hose must have been clogged.

Good Luck!!

Thanks
