Hello...my Whilpool Duet washer keeps giving a SUD and F02 error. Now...this just happened a couple months ago and we replaced the Drain Pump Assembly...is it possible that we are once again going to have...
Hello, W/D here.
What you are seeing is the suds (SUD) error code, followed by a long drain fault code (F02).
This does not necessarily indicate that you need to change anything at this time. When the machine senses too much suds, the error code is displayed, when too much suds are actually present, a longer drain time results.
Duets are HE (high efficiency) machines, and require a detergent that produces little suds. If you are using HE detergent, cut back on it until you can run a cycle without getting the SUD/F02 alarms. If you are not using HE detergent (we don't either), you really have to be careful with the amount of detergent used.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Run a cycle without any detergent to flush the machine.
It is advisable to check that the drain hose isn't plugged or have a kink in it.
Make sure that the pump is running. You may need to check the electrical connections at the pump.
You might check the filter on the drain pump for debris or foreign objects, which might cause the drain cycle to be extended.
If limiting the detergent, and nothing was found in checking the other items listed, then the pump may need to be replaced.
