I had the same problem with my front load washer. A technician came and fixed it and showed me what to do in the future if it ever happened again. I had to take off the front bottom panel, and on the lower right side there was a screw-top about the size of a golf ball. When I unscrewed it -- have you a bucket ready -- water would drain out and the drain would be stopped up with all kinds of stuff -- chapstick containers, baby socks, q-tips, toothpicks, hair, etc. Once this was unstopped, I would screw the top back on and it would be good for a couple of months. Whenever it started taking a really long time for the clothes to wash or the clothes were coming out too wet, I knew the drain was stopped up again. This is probably also the cause for the suds -- it's just not draining properly. Hope this helps -- I had SO many problems with my front load (with the biggest being stinky laundry), I got rid of it and got a basic washer and dryer.

Without being smart...buy a new machine. It sounds as though the timer is dying...therefore slowing down...therefore extending cycle times. If that's the case, a new timer will cost about half the cost of a new machine.

Code f02 comes up. washer will not spin.


F02 error could be caused by the over use of soap, you need to make sure your using 2 tablespoons of HE soap, 1/4 cap at the most.
Over sudsing, could cause the water pump to run longer, the pump is designed for 15 min duty cycle which means, 15 minutes on to 45 minutes off. The computer may sense too much soap, and continue to pump. HE soap will cure that, along with SUD error, possible F09 (overflow condition), you may also notice the timing is wrong, HE soap works well in these machines and F/l washer go hand in hand

Whirlpool Duet ----"SUD" and "F02" code


"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

Keeps washing


If you are using a front load washer, never use more than one tablespoon of HE laundry soap per load. Now, to get rid of the suds you have: Get a package of Phyzeme (spelling?) tables for stomach gas. Cut about four of the capsules open and add the liquid contents to the washer, then resume wash. That will knock the suds right down without having to run about 10 rinse cycles through the washer.

suds is determined using the level sw located on top right rear side. remove top cover to see. most letter codes do convert to a f code. most common reason for suds error is use of standard detergent or too much detergent. running a empty load of fabric softener can clean the system. or rinse/spin with nothing. other common problem is this is a whirlpool product.
