Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Threw in clothes added detergent and pushed start. Water filled in but no agitate or spin or drain. The unit reads F02. What does this mean?
Read out also read: sud
"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.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.
If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.
•If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
•Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
•Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and
Central Control Unit (CCU)
•Check/ Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
•Check Drain Pump
•Check the Pressure Switch
