Take off the front bottom panel and clean out the pump . There is a trap in it its probably full. Turn the cap of the pump. there is water in it you will need a couple of towels.

Hello Mike - Typically, if the water temperature combination is not appropriate for the cycle selected, the status lights will blink and signal will beep 3 times. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. Wait roughly ten minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and verify if the washer continues to beep. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, your appliance could be experiencing a communication error with the control board or could have a wiring failure. I would suggest contacting an experienced service technician to determine the precise cause.

Washer won't complete cycle. F02 flashing


F02 = long drain

try this

If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F02" is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display.

NOTE: After four minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then four minutes later the "F02" error code will be displayed..

Possible Causes / Procedure

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

2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.

4. Check the drain pump filterfor foreign objects.

5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.

6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.

At the end of the normal wash cycle my washer begins to beep repetitively and shows an error code of F 02?. It will not spin and drain. We've began to switch it to Drain/Spin cycle and this works about...


Hi
Error F02 appears after 8mins of SUDs error. Error F02 means Long drain, means washer is taking longer time than normal to drain. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. NOTE: After 4 minutes the SUD error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
? Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
? Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
? Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
? If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

There are 3 small 9/32 hex head screws that hold the front panel on. Unscrew the 3 hex head screws (9/32 socket or nut driver size), now remove the front kick panel. Unscrew the white drain cap -WARNING-- lots of water will drain out when you loosen the white cap. Once all the water is out, remove and take out the filter trap.
Hope this helps... Please post back for more information

My whirlpool duet frequently locks up. It flashes f02 or SUD or just sits and does nothing. Sometimes it takes over an hour for a 40min cycle. Today I used the washing machine cleaner in it on the...


“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
