It sound like you have a blocked or a malfunction pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check whether you have a clogged inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. In case all is clean, you should replace the pump.. Good luck !

there is water in the pan below the unit. You will need to take apart the lower section of the dishwasher behind the toe kick and suck out the water, or just wait for it to evaporate (few days) Good Luck!

SOURCE: f2 code flashing

Have you tried to reset the dishwasher to clear out the error code? Toreset, you hold down the "Start/Stop" button (or "Wash Program" buttonon units that don't have the "Start/Stop" button) for 3 to 5 seconds.This should clear the code. Try running a cycle to see if the problemreturns. If it does, you can, if you are completely comfortable withyour mechanical abilities, remove the toe kick plate, the access panel,the "T"-shaped kick bracket and the galvanized guard plate to see ifthere is water in the basepan. I would only remove these panels if I was POSITIVELY comfortablewith doing it. * To remove the screws, you'll need a 20 TORXscrewdriver. If water is present in the base pan, vacuum with a wet/dryvacuum or soak up with a towel or sponge. Run a cycle and inspect forleaks. If the problem continues, contact a local service center: Toll-free @ 1-800-898-1879. Hope this helps...

I'm not sure about that model, but on an older one, just under the drain area there is a piece os styrofoam attached to a switch. I guess if it rises it activates the circuit. Problem is if it drys it sticks, so push it down with your hand gently. This involves taking off that bottom kickplate area, but that's the only way in there.

SOURCE: My Fisher and Paykel flashed a F2 error code

F2 error means motor problem. This could be due to several reasons. The most common is grime going in from the drain filter and getting stuck around the motor rotor cavity.

Follow instructions in your user guide to clean the filter plate. At this point you can take the rotor out and clean the cavity. The rotor can be pulled out carefully without pressing too hard on the impellers.

If this does not help then try cleaning the connecting link between the drain filter and motor cavity. You will need a thin stiff wire for this.

Finally if nothing works, the rotor might be broken and needs replacing.

Why is it blinking f2?


Whirlpool

F2 = Long Drain error code.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and “F/02” is flashed.

Press, PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the "F2 error code" will be displayed.

Potential Causes:

(1) Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.

(2) Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.

(3) Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump.

I have a Kenmore HE3t washer than continues to stop during the cycle and flash the F2 error code even after cleaning out lines, hoses, trap, boot and replacing the drain pump.


It is possible that the brushes on the motor that spins the drum are worn down. The drum will start and stop when this happens. Check the brushes.

F2 error code won't drain


The problem is with rotor assembly of the drawer that is causing the F2 error. Turn power off. Empty water using a small container and towel to dry base.


Remove the washer arm and drain filter sump cover. Twist the rotor at the base out from the socket gently but firmly.
Clean the cavity and check the rotor for damage. Put everthing back in and turn power on.If F2 does not go away then replace rotor.

Pump continually running with F2 displayed.


There is water in the lower pan that you must access by removing the toe kick plate and then the panel behind it. you will see water in the overflow area. Clean that out and all will be well. Asko's are awesome dishwashers that capture any water they may overflow or leak internally instead of it going on your floor, then a float switch triggers the F2 error and runs the drain pump.

Kenmore elite h3 front load washer is not working error code f2 flashes


Hello,

The F2 error code mean that the washer didn't drain the water within the normal time it takes to drain,usually the reson the washer hasn't drained properly is because the filter screen on the drain pump is clogged with debris. this tip i have written will show ya how to clean the filter on the pump.

My Duet front loader.. once it starts washing it stops and an error f2 code comes up and it will not complete the washer the clothes are left wet. if i move to spin only it still wont same code comes up


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F2 is a drain error in your washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F2. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The washer is giving a code of "F2" & not draining properly.. any idea?


This code indicates a pump issue. First, remove and clean the filter. Then you need to check out the pump.

Washing machine not draining, not occuring on every cycle. The "F2" code flashes during the cycle. "F2" indicates a drain problem. Is this the control panel or the motor that pumps out the water?


Possible your outlet filer is blocked, clean this out and refit. Refer to manual; the outlet filter requires periodic cleaning according to your usage; things shd be fine...
