Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. 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. Applianceaid.com

  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer.
  3. The drain/filter/pump is right in front.
  4. You can see a diagram of the pump at http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drain-Pump/1200164.
  5. First remove as much water from the washer as you can. Place a large towel under the pump - a lot of water will come out when you remove the filter cover cap.
  6. Remove the drain filter cover cap by turning the filter cover cap counterclockwise.
  7. Remove the filter and check the housing and pump impeller vanes for debris (see if you can move the pumps impeller by hand).
  8. Clean the cover cap gasket and the gaskets mating surface.
  9. Replace the filter and close the cover cap firmly.
  10. Run a short wash cycle and check for any leaks at the filter cover cap. If the error comes back, you may need to replace your drain pump.
  11. Replace the kick panel if none are found.

SOURCE: Error Msg F02

Had the F02 error as well. Thanks to all great posts here, esp. colonel rick, catriver and bullfrog7. Use a Torx (star) screwdriver to get the three screws off the bottom of the front plate (I dropped a screw, so was glad I had a magnetic reach tool). I saw the trap, and began to unscrew, and water started pouring, so I immediately re-closed. THE WATER IS AN ISSUE, SO BE PREPARED. Big problem for me was I had the drawer unit beneath (water leaking through ... messy). Grabbed a few towels, but then took bullfrog7's idea of the shop vac. Sucked what I could out of the drum (had a load going before the error), Then I unscrewed the front screw from the trap, and slid the trap unit forward (be careful of the wiring harness unit). This enabled me to pour water from the trap into a mop bucket. I then used the vac to **** what I could from the drain pipe. Our trap had 3 baby socks and untold lint. Washed the trap, put it back together, and voila! No issues. If I can do this, you can too!

SOURCE: kenmore front load HE 4T error code 2F what does this mean?

Its been my experience this is related to the drain pump being plugged.
First, you need to take out as much water as you can. Empty the washer and then select drain with NO spin. It may help to drain water.
Second step, unplug your machine, and unscrew the front-bottom panel (there are three screws on the bottom, you need to go to the floor)
Third, there is a plastic cover for the draining pump. WARNING - There is still, water inside, so have plenty of towels handy!
Unscrew the plastic cover and there is a good chance you'll find the clog.

SOURCE: f02 error on my kenmore elite H3

FO2 is the code for long drain. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels, a good big plastic bag or a wet vac to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

What does the trouble code f2 mean for the kenmore elite 4t washing machine?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My kenmore elite HE 4t washing machine will not start. error message dL. It has happen before but I was able to get it started and working for several weeks till now.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'dl' stands for Door Lock (Error). There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(
Good luck,

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 model 44832 200 washer. Will spin sometimes, but doesn't seem to get to full speed. Often won't spin at all and gets F02 error, but it does roll during wash/rinse cycles. ...


he F02 message is a long drain error and it may mean the pump is clogged or bad. You don't provide a lot of detail about if the water is draining out or not but the first thing to check for this error is the drain pump.

The image below shows how to access the pump and remove the filter. This may be your only problem. With the access panel removed you can also make sure the pump is running. Remember to unplug the washer before removing the access panel.

Check the pump for the F02 and make sure you're using HE detergent and there's not excessive suds.

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

Kenmore HE3 front loader keeps getting F02 error message, most often when I wash towels. I was able to workaround by pulling half the load, but that no longer does the trick.

F02 Error Code & SUD message


Knowing from our washer, the SUD code is too much foam from the detergent. Since most soaps today are highly concentrated, or High Efficiency soap, try using less soap as a starter. :)
