Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
I have a Kenmore elite He3 showing F02 error code. Have to check for blocked drains but what may be causing blockage is the plastic gasket around front of tube is wearing away! 1st can some one tell me how to check drains and 2nd can this gasket be purchased separately and is it a nightmare to replace.
Your drain pump is clogged. you must take the bottom panel off to acess. there is a draincock that you will unscrew but be advised that there will be a gush of water and then you will discover the small items blocking your drainflow.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
