Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
It wont drain or spin. It gives me a error F 02, there is nothing stuck under the rubber of the door. I checked the hose it is clear, the wall drain is clear and it is between 30" and 96" from the botttom of the washer as Manuf. suggests. It turns off every minute and I have to press "cancel" then "start" and it runs for another minute then gives the F 02 again. It also throws a few "suds" error codes and adds water, and the nightmare starts over!! I use only HE detergent and have even tried running cyles with no detergent, in case there was a build up. I have a husband and 2 teenage boys....I need to wash clothes. Any suggeastions?
Washer weary, You need to clean the filter on the pump. Remove the bottom panel and the filter will be right in front. 3 #11 torx screws it will pull down and off. Get yourself a bucket to catch the excess water. Unscrew the filter and clean it. Check to see that nothing is in the impeller. The F02 should go away..Catriver.

Error code F02 f 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
