"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

My Kenmore elite he3t is giving me a problem in the spin cycle. Even thought the spin setting is set on high or extra high, the drum turns very slowly and will eventually stop and the washer starts...


The machine will not advance to the high-speed spin cycle unless the water is drained first. The F02 error code manifests this condition as it means draining problem. Either the pump filter is blocked, the drain hose is clogged/kinked, the pressure switch is stuck in the full position, or the pump itself is not working. The display can be cleared by pressing the Pause/Cancel button twice.

Disconnect power and remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Click on the link below for further troubleshooting should the cleaning of the filter does not resolve the problem.

This error code indicates that drain times are longer than it should be
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose from on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.
The most common cause of a slow drain is the drain pump screen is clogged with lint. Unplug the washer and remove the bottom front panel with 3 screws on the bottom. The drain pump will be right in the center usually white in color. There will be about a 3 inch piece that can be unscrewed by hand. Have your wet vac ready because when you start to unscrew this all the water in the machine will come out here. Once all of the water is empty completely unscrew and pull out. You will now be looking at the drain pump screen which with the f2 should be full of lint or debris. Clean the screen thoroughly and reassemble. If this does not fix your problem you will need to check all the hoses going into the drain pump for anything blocked in them. If all is clear you will need to check for 110 volts at the pump when the washer is in drain. This should only be attempted if you have had training with live voltage. If 110 volts exists the drain pump will need to be replaced.
Thank you

Our Whirpool duet washer will not spin, gives us the SUDS and F02 message and now the door is locked.....suggestionss?


k now the washer beleives that it is full of water.
pour about 3/4 cup of veg oil in the dispenser. and start the unit.. this will get rid of the suds error.
F02 means long fill.. and the water level has not satisfied the computer for 40 secs. check water connections. making sure they are fully open.
to open the door if it does not unlock, in the dispenser there should be an ODD colored line, five that a tug and the door will pop open
