Question about Whirlpool GHW9100L Front Load Washer
My Whirplool front load duet washer began a grinding noise & says ''F02'' which the manual says is a drainage problem. We have taken off the panel door checked the filter,(very clean)checked all hoses,screens, no problem. Still have water in machine. We followed directions to press/cancel pause twice & reset to drain spin. It still doesn't drain & starts making a grinding sound. Pressing cancel does not stop machine so we have to unplug it. Also door will not open. We opened by reaching up on the inside of the panel behind lock to pull lever to open. I have water sitting inside washer. Please give any advice to avoid having to call a repairmen. Could this be an electrical problem & if so which part should be replaced. My husband could fix it if we know which part or wires. My model is GHW9100LW1 & is probably the original. Purchased about 6-7 yrs ago. PLEASE HELP! Thank you for your response.
"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
