Question about Washing Machines
At the end of the normal wash cycle my washer begins to beep repetitively and shows an error code of F 02?. It will not spin and drain. We've began to switch it to Drain/Spin cycle and this works about half of the time. The washer was purchased in March of '04. Can you help??
Yes...the "F02" error code is a "Long Drain" error. The washer will not spin if it cannot drain the tub, first. The following link explains how to diagnose and correct the problem:
In most cases this is nothing more than a clogged drain pump. Folow the steps outlined in teh link provided on how to check and clear the drain pump and drain lines. Now...it does not take much to damage these pumps. If anything has been left in the pump for a significant period of time it can cause irrepairable damage to the pump impeller and/or motor. The result: a drain pump that MAY run, but won't actually pump anything.
If this is the case, you will need to replace the pump. Replacements can be obtained at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading for item number 10. This next link will provide you with the steps necessary to replace the pump (if required):
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

You should clean the the drain filter and the drain hose first but if the pump is removing water and the F02 is still hanging in there try this, it worked for me. Remove the back of the washer and in the upper left is a pressure switch that tells the computer the where the water level is. Remove the black rubber tube from the switch and blow into it. Mine had a small obstruction and didn't let the switch see the pressure change (water level change). I did replace the pump and didn't need to.
