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 ***** 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: whirlpool duet washer sport ht - error codes

FYI: The pump cleanout is located on the front of the machine, bottom right corner. There are only three screws holding the bottom cover on. It is easy to get to if you prop it up a few inches off the ground. Just thought this would be helpful as I just did this as of 5 min ago. Should take 10 min. or less.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet HT GWH9300P Suds then F2

This means that the drain time has exceeded 8 minutes and the water valves have turned off. After 4 minutes the suds error is displayed then 4 minutes later the F2 error.
Potential causes
1.Check drain hose for kinks or cloggs
2.Check electrical connection at the pump and make sure the pump runs.
3.Check inside of pump for foreign objects
4.If none of the above fixes the machine replace the pump.

If you hear the pump running and not draining, then take the toe panel off. Should be 3 1/4" screws on bottom. Remove the "coin catch". It looks like a BIG screw and it's white. Turn counterclockwise. There may be a sock, change ect...clogging it up. Dump it out and run machine. Have towel or bucket ready when removing coin catch.

SOURCE: washer won't drain or spin, get F2 error

Hello hernandez160,

The "F2" error is referring to excessive drain time. Unplug machine before working on it. Remove screws on bottom of lower panel and remove panel. The drain pump is behind the panel, It has a large round door on it, turn counter clock wise by hand to access pump clean out. Have lots of towels ready. Remove anything from pump (usually kids socks or small clothing articles). If nothing in pump clean out remove suction boot from drain pump and check there. If nothing there blow through the drain hose from the pump side to check if anything is stuck in the hose. If that's clear check the electrical connection on the pump, make sure nothing is loose or broken at the connection. If all this checks out good and it still wont work you probably have a bad pump and it will need to be replaced. If you do find something was blocked or clogged due to small clothing articles I would recommend a garment/lingerie bag to keep all the small stuff together during the wash cycle. Hope this helps to fix your problem. Please remember to rate this and every solution you get.
Thanks,

First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Whirlpool Duet Sport Model WFW8300SW0 basket won't


The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: - Duet HT washer - F01, F03, F06, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, F32, F35, F42, F61, F62, F63, F64, F65, F70, F71, and F99

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

I would first replace the door latch/lock assembly, a number of users have and it fixed the F-11 error code completely. Its the cheapest part for this problem.

Hope helps.

I have a Whirlpool duet HT front loading automatic washer, it's not draining & last time it did this a repair man came and showed me how to get underneath and drain it, but I don't remember how


The following link explains how to access the drain pump on a Whirlpool Duet front loader to clean out the trap:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

If you are experiencing drainage issues and cleaning the pump does not work, you may have to replace the drain pump. You will usually experience an "F2", "SUD" or "F21" error code (depending on model number) for a drain blockage problem. Since this error code occurs when the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump motor or impeller becomes damaged, the pump will not pump at the required volume and the error code will continue to occur. Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.

NOTE: Make sure you also check the drain hose and the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the drain pump. Small articles of clothing can commonly get lodged in this area.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
