Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Just had the same problem with my 9250 Duet and fixed it this morning. The F02 code is a "long drain" code. It could be because something is blocking the external drain line, the internal drain line, the pump filter, or the wash basin. I fussed with mine intermittently for about a year, resetting it so it would run thru the cycle, until one day (yesterday) that wouldn\'t work. Opted to give a shot at fixing it, since repairman couldn\'t be here until at least Monday, and THEN wanted $90 just for the service call. Anyway, using a Torx bit, unscrewed the 3 screws on the front cover. Directly in front of you, at the center front of the machine, is a plastic apparatus with a motor attached to it. SLOWLY untwist the (apx 2.5") plastic cap. However, BE PREPARED. The water that remains in your washer will ALL come out. If it comes out all at once, there is a problem from the filter cap (which may have junk in it which caused the problem in the first place)to the outside line (i.e. bad pump, clogged drain line from pump to exterior drain line). If it all drains out slowly (like mine), or not at all, the obstruction is from the wash basin TO the pump filter. Using Robo-Grip pliers, I removed the hose clamp at the bottom of the wash basin (easily located by following the black rubber drain line to its origin), and quickly found the problem: a giant mound of YUCK (easily 5 cups worth, no kidding) which had accumulated around the float (situate inside the rubber drain line) and the washer drain basin itself. Pulled it all out, put it all back together, and it works GREAT! And the hardest part (no kidding) was getting the hose clamp back on the drain line/float apparatus. Hope this helps you, and that this post is not too late. BTW, I am in no way a mechanical genius, so I HIGHLY recommend that anyone attempt fixing it before calling the repair man.

SOURCE: My washer won't drain (code F2)?
"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, this means there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:
Included is a follow-on link that explains how to access and check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.
NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.
If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

Possible fault with the program controller unit. You need to check the program cycle outputs using a multimeter connected to measure the output voltage. On start the inlet should open and then close as the water level sensors works and then proceed to wash. So this much seems OK. Now in the next step the drain valve must open to drain off, then fill once again with the inlet working and water level being sensed. If there is no output in this section cycle then the prrogram controller has errors within the memory . You can remove the panel and reset all connectors and connections.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
F02 is a drain error in your washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds 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.
