I was have the same issue. F2 is a drain issue according to the book. Called and scheduled a repair for Friday. The good news is, this is an easy fix that I did myself in about 15 minutes total time.

You need to remove the front lower cover, held on by three 7mm nut/screws. I had to use a small but long extension on my ratchet to get a decent hold on these screws. Once the screws are off, pull the front lower cover off. Directly in the middle you will see a screw cap, similar to one you would find on your gas tank on your car. WARNING!!!! WHEN YOU REMOVE THIS, EXPECT A BUNCH OF VERY NASTY WATER TO EXIT. Have numerous towels close at hand and do not sit on the floor in front of the machine when you unscrew this cap to the left. The cap is also a filter and you will find things in there better not described, but it is safe to say, once you see whati s in this filter, you will know why your machine would not drain. Clean the filter, put it back on tight and button up the front cover. Your ready to go.

I just completed the process described above and have just completed the second load without issue. I am doing the happy dance and saved myself a few bucks. Tomorrow, I cancel the repair appointment.

Good Luck!

  1. Open the front door of the washer, and run your hand behind the big, gray rubber gasket. You might feel/see small items stuck there.
  2. If you kneel in front of the washer and look along the very bottom edge, you'll see 3 screws in a row. They are of the "torx" type. Unscrew them and then jiggle out the bottom panel. Inside you'll see a large plastic (off-white color) drain, and you can unscrew the 3-inch diameter cap off it and pull it out. The backside of the cap is a filter. Clear it out and put it back in. (We found a baby sock there).

*&^% screws!!!


F2 = Long Drain. Most common cause is something (or lots of things) stuck in the drain pump. There are screws at the bottom of the front panel that can be removed to check it out. If the screws look like stars they are Torx head screws, get driver from most home centers.
