Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

F 02 code

We took the filter off, it was completely clogged. We cleaned it all out, now still getting the code which according to the manual it's the pump. Do we need a new pump? It seems to be pumping water o.k.

These small drain pumps are easily damaged by debris and foreign matter clogging the impeller. If anything has been left in the pump for any significant period of time, the impeller or drive motor may have been damaged. The error code is caused when the Central Control Unit (CCU) fails to detect a completed drain within a prescribed time interval (usually 6 to 8 minutes, depending on model). The pump may still run, but may not be pumping enough volume to drain within that prescribed time (I hope this makes sense). In a nut shell, if cleaning the pump and drain lines does not correct the problem, the manufacturer recommends replacing the drain pump. Replacements can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or appliancepartspros.com. All three sites offer competitive pricing, so check with all three for the best price.

I hope this answers your question. If you need assistance in replacing the pump, or have further questions, please let me know.

F 02 WARNING KEEPS COMING UP.. i FOLLOW THE MANUAL AND HIT THE CANCEL BUTTON TWICE AND UNPLUG THE MACHINE. I CHECK TO SEE IF THE LINE IS CLOGGED AND I CANT FIND ANYTHING.. THEN AFTER A WHILE IT STARTS BUT...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
F02 is a drain error in your whirlpool Duet washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display sud and then F02. 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 screen on my washer is saying the code LD i dont have a manual and it wont drain completly. I took my clothes out and they were completly soaked with water. HELP! :D


The LD fault code indicates that the washer took longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water and reset the water level pressure switch. You should be able to press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Check you drain hose for kinks or clogs. You could have a clog or failure in the drain pump that is causing this problem

What is code F 02


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 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 F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• 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(Actual drain filter location and procedure below)
• If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump



How to Check your drain pump filter for foreign objects:

Most likely, this issue will be the cause of a clogged drain filter. Use my procedure below to help locate and clean this filter.

First, you will need to unplug your unit and shut off the rear water faucets that feed the unit.The pump has a clean out filter located at the front, behind the lower section of the front panel, that allows for the removal of large objects that may have passed from the basket. You will need to remove the front panel to access this large object filter device. Now, Once you have located the drain filter cap; Push twits and pull out the filter cap that is visible. Clear out any debris and wipe the filter and the surrounding area with a mild detergent. If needed, wear gloves and use vinegar or bleach to remove odors, mold and mildew. Rinse the parts completely, if possible. Next; Remove the drain hose and clean it with a mild detergent or warm water. If necessary, again use vinegar or bleach to remove odors and mildew. Completely purge this hose. Once the drain hose has been purged, Reconnect the drain hose and filter. Next; Place the front panel back on the unit. Reconnect the inlet hoses and plug in the unit and turn it back on for a test run. If the cleansing dose not produce positive results, replace the drain pump.


Click here to access service manual for your unit. The actual component access procedures dealing with this issue will be on page 3-10 in the manual provided under the title"PUMP MOTOR". Front door and panel removal procedures are also described in this manual. This will start on page 4-1. Foucuse on pages 4-3 and 4-4 for front panel removal to access the drain pump and filter assembly.

F 02 was flashing and the water is still in the machine how do i get the water out


Based upon your description, the drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) Take care of lot of water going to the floor, unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

Washer has an F02 code in the middle of the cycle, which has stopped, and I don't have the manual.


F02 = Long Drain

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

The most common cause is a clogged drain filter. Remove your lower front panel. The filter is located in the discharge hose before the pump (often white in color).
Remove the filter and clean out any debris (socks, nails, coins etc..)

If this is not the problem then here is directly fronm the manual.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

* 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.

Getting an F 02 error code with my Kenmore Elite HE 3T


Your filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and other stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 screws. The panel will drop and come off. The filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels and unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in.

Kenmore Elite: Won't complete cycle


“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.

Kenmore Elite HE4T Front Load Washer


These machines have a filter you should clean depending on your usage. It is usually at the front bottom - a small door. This is a filter before the water gets to your outlet pump to be siphoned out; it is there in order not to clog up your pump.
