Kenmore Elite: Won't complete cycle

Our washer gave us the f-02 code. We knew it was the pump, took it out, was full of gunk (I mean full). Cleaned it out, didn't work, still got the code. Bought a new pump, installed it. At first it would begin to fill the drum without agitating and then would go right to trying to pump out water, would keep pumping forever until it gave the same f-02 code. Cleaned out the water lines (thought they might be plugged) same thing. It wouldn't agitate. Unplugged the machine to reset, started over, got it to agitate, went all the way through until 20 minutes left, pumps out the water but won't spin. Pumps until you get the f-02 code again. Is this an electrical/computer issue?

“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.

Error code f 02


I think it's a slow drain fault. But would need full model number to say for sure. Still it wouldn't hurt to check the drain pump for crud. Here are some vids that might help. Don't worry too much about brand specifics. Many brands share identical and similar parts.

My washer gives me a 02 F error code and does not spin the water complete the cycle. It just freezes


"F/02" Long Drain
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
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

Washer stops mid cycle and displays F 02 error code.

Washer does not drain completely.


I'm not sure if this is the same model as our but I will let you know ours did not drain all the way and kept stopping, not completing the cycle. We found that if you take the bottom of the front of the washer panel off thre is a circular looking thing, it happens to be a trap for waste, sort of like the dryers lint catcher. Make sure you put something under it befor you loosen the cap water will come out. When we took the cap off, it was filled with gunk and we cleaned it out and the problem was solved!!!! Amazing because we tried everything , called everyone and not one person even mentioned we had a trap in the washer... It should be right in the center when you take the front lower panel off.. Good luck and let us know if it works for you..
Sincerely,
