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.

Loss of power over time


What are and were the codes? Were the catalytic converters replaced? Sounds like the typical clogged cats. It could be the cats broke apart and clogging the exhaust system. My scanner tells me much.

Unit switches off and displays error code 02-57


According to:

bassfisherman60

From the manual
02-57 Fan lock
This code is output when fan locking (over 30 seconds) is detected.
After the error message is displayed, the power turns off.

Perhaps opening the unit with the power unplugged (of course!) and clearing/cleaning the fan would help. It may be that the fan is just clogged with dust/debris.

HAVE A 95 MUSTANG 3.8 HAS A HESITATION TO IT NOT SURE WHAT IY COULD BE CHECKED CAM SENSOR CRANK SENSOR ALL FINE.. CAN YOU GIVE ME ANY SUGGESTIONS?


Here are some things to look for. Also is your car shooting any check engine (ODB) codes? Alot of times if you are running a catless exhaust and dont have MIL eliminators it will shoot a check engine code but then again I've seen mustangs that dont shoot the code.


-Check for vacuum leaks your system can detects a leak as small as 1mm in size. Yes this even means check the security of your oil cap. check all hoses that attach to the intake manifold and all hoses that run downstream the MAF and upstream of the 02 sensors.

-Clean the MAF, that helps alot. I just took it off and sprayed some brake cleaner all over it and some on the sensor itself and repeated it about three times.

-Take your CAI off to get to the throttle body and inspect it and then manually open it and see how much black residue or how much dirt is on it and you can take some electronics cleaner and spray it down but dont scrub hard the TB's have a special coating on them that you dont want to take off but be sure to get everything cleaned evenly.

-I also had an 02 sensor go bad and that took some power away from me as well.

-Also it can be a clogged or bad fuel filter as well. You could also running some fuel system cleaner through your car. I remember it helped my friends mustang out.

-Sometimes it can be a buildup around the throttle plate, try hitting the throttle inside and out with carb cleaner.

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.

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.

Whirlpool washer is giving me a flashing code "02"


I was having the same problem with my 4-5 yr old machine
and learned that the pump was getting clogged so i took the bottom panel off and cleaned out the
filter before the pump...pulled about $3.75 in coins, nails,
a piece of sponge and various other items
See the link below for some details

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.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

My bissell easy vac won't pick up after first use


Well after reading and re-reading my bissell easy vac manual (I had only used the vac twice), I went through all the troubleshooting recommendations. I cleaned out all filters and even though I had only used my hose attachment once, I was shocked that it was completely clogged! I took the whole thing apart and thoroughly cleaned it out according to the manufacturers instructions. It is working beautifully again now, I just take extra care to check it after every use...it can be a hassle, but I find that's what happens when you buy bargain items; you spend less but end up investing more time in upkeep. I hope this helps!! :)
