I have owned this washer for 2 1/2 years, and all of a sudden, I hear this series of 3 beeps every time I do a load. The beeps happen once or twice a minute. Also, when I press the "start" button, sometimes it starts and other times it takes me to a different temperature and spin setting. After reading several testimonials on the web, I am afraid that this washer is headed for a relay repair. 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.

Sometimes the LD on certain machines can be decieving, It's possible that the error is pointing to a lid lock issue. I'm a sears tech but have logged of my work computer for the night so I can't look it up right now. I just happened to stumble on this forum. In all appliances there is a tech sheet hid somewhere. This will give you more information. On this model, if you press and hold anykey for 3-4 seconds, let it up for 3-4 second and do that 3 times it will show more codes and go into a test cycle. Don't worry you cant screw anything up in the controller. If you or anybody needs help on appliances you can drop me a line. I have been a Sears tech for 15 years and have seen a lot of stuff and learning more all the time. scottowa at hot mail

Try unplugging the washer for about 20 minutes then plug back in and use. I have found that this actually works! The only thing I can figure out is that it takes time for the electronic control to clear. If that doesn't fix the problem I would call sears tech since it is less than a year old. They have a 1-2 year warranty.
