The F02 error code on a Whirlpool washer indicates that the control detects a long drain time. This can be caused by excessive suds in the tub, a restriction or clog in the drain system or by a number of other component failures.
If the Whirlpool washer did not drain, check for excessive suds in the tub. After the suds dissipate, you can normally run a rinse/drain and spin cycle. Causes for excessive suds include not using HE (High Efficiency) detergent or using too much detergent (even if it is HE type).
If the washer will not drain and you do not detect excessive suds, you could have a clog in the drain system. Check the drain hose and the washer drain. You may need to manually unlock the washer door and then pull the large item filter on the pump to check for a clog. To manually unlock the washer door, Always saftey
unplug the washer ,to disconnect electrical power and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the top of the image below. Carefully reach up along the inside of the front panel and pull down on the tab that is under the door lock mechanism until it clicks. This will unlock the washer door. Open the door and manually drain the water out of the washer with a wet/dry shop vacuum. Once the washer is drained, arrange some towels to catch residual water that will drain out and remove the large item filter as shown in the image below. Check for a clog or restriction that could be preventing the washer from draining properly.
If you find no clog or restriction in the drain system, you may have a bad drain pump that needs to be replaced. A problem with the electronic control board could also prevent the washer from draining.
If the washer is draining properly but you are getting this code, you likely have a problem with the water level pressure switch or the control board.
There are a number of causes for a SUD error. The most common is using non-HE detergent or just too much detergent. Try taking the clothes out and running the washer empty. (Do not add detergent.) When the tub doesn't have any suds, retry with a small load and very small amount of HE detergent. The next issue is clogged drain hose/pump filters. Take the drain hose off the back of the washer and clean any debris with Q-tips or similar until you see the filter screen. The pump filter is sometimes called a coin catcher. You'll need to carefully check that. Take a small bucket or bowl to catch the water when you disconnect the hose from the tub to the pump. The final cause is a leak either at the detergent "box" or in the tub or a bad sensor claiming there is such a leak. If the unit is detecting suds outside of the tub, you will need to call for repair. Depending on the age of the washer, this may be covered under warranty.
Run a cycle with white vinegar this will clear the suds. Make sure you are using HE soap if not the unit will over suds.
Another common issue is the drain pump filter. If it gets clogged the sud error will come up as well. If you have water inside the pump may need to be cleaned. Simply remove the three screws ont he bottom of the lower access panel and then twist the handle on the filter. If water is inside the washer, it will come out when the filter is pulled out.
Drop your drain hose to floor level with bucket under it this will drain with no power applied , pour in as much water as you can to flush it out / clear pump .After all suds clear refit / restart ..Should now fill, wash/ empty and spin...I hope ...
You need to check and see if ice maker has any water init. if not check the fill tube that goes thru the back wall for stoppage while you have it out rin the maker thru a harvest mode and listen for the sounds of the solonoid opening. If tube is full you'll need to replace the slow leaking valve a common problem. for parts call 704-819-6557
Check the exit hose for blockage and kinks, open the bottom access panel (3 screws front bottom)and then open the filter access and look for debris, some extra water will spill!!, check the manual for more in this area http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/eab852a13fbc842085256aa200643dd6/$FILE/Duet%20Job%20Aid.pdf
