I followed your previous fix and I'm still getting the FO2 error message. Any advice? I already replace the pump and circuit board and still have the same problem the FO2 still appears and the washer won't work.

    Hi there, I have read many of your solutions to a common problem on Kenmore Elite frontloader washer. I have a code F02 that comes up and after I cleared the clogged at the pump filter, unplugging it for more than 30 minutes to reset the computer brain, It was still giving me an F02 display. So after checking everything, I changed the hose from the tub to the water pump, changed the complete drain pump, yet it is still giving me an F02. Im pretty sure there is no clogged anywhere.What else can I do? Thanks

I have a Kenomore Elite HE4t Washer. I am getting an F02 error message. I've tried to rerun washer & get SUDS on and off. Fo2 message appears again and cycle shuts down. Door will not unlock. Any...


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• 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

I get an Fo2 error. How can I fix the error?


“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

Going to Fo2


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to 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 can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

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.

Why an ei6 error msg on canona630 suddenly after just taking pix?


The E16 error is a circuit board problem and is not user fixable. It needs to go to a Canon service facility. Try to get it fixed under warranty, if possible. If not, get an estimate before repairing, as price may be prohibitive. Weigh repair costs against replacing with a new camera.

Error message FO2 keeps coming up


The F02 error code indicates a “long drain” If after 8 minutes of pump time the washer is not draining, you will get this error code. I would recommend checking the pump filter, drain hose, pressure switch & pressure hose. Be sure you are using HE (high efficiency) laundry soap.

FO2 Error Msg


Hamish, F02 is long drain. Check that the drain hose is not kinked or plugged. Check the drain pump filter for lint and debris. Check the electrical connections at the pump and the fact the the pump is running. Make sure you are using HE detergent and that you are not over sudsing. Check the drain itself is not backing up. If all of the above are good, replace the pump...Catriver..post back.
