Question about Whirlpool ET8CHEXSQ Dryer
I purchased the pair in mid 2007. They both worked fine until recently.
The dryer is showing an error cdoe F02. When that happens the light panels all lights up and a beeping noise starts. I then will stop the beeping sound and cut the lights by pushing the pause/cancel button. But that only last for a while. Then it starts all over again. Recently, the dryer started up by itself. Now that was scary....can you help?
"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
