Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Front loader with F02 problem

After the wash cycle the machine stops and flashes F02 for drainage problem. At that time, I lift the hose and pull it up from the drain and you can hear some water drain out. Then I push the hose back down in the drain - then push the pause button twice and then hit start and it continues to run its cycle. After the rinse cycle, the water drains just fine and for the rest of the wash its fine. It just gets stuck at that one point????

Whirlpool Duet, F02 code. Filter is clean, pump has great volume, pressure switch tube is clean, flex tube ball is free. Some times the machine will just stop, no code with the display flashing.


F02 Long Drain 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

Check both the drain hose at the back (check height setting and look for blockage), and make sure you have checked the drain filter (access door in front bottom side in front loaders- Bottom side or back in top loaders).

If the drain filter and hose are OK, next step will be checking the pressure switch. The pressure switch is the sensor that detects water level, deciding when to start/stop drain pump and when to advance to spin. When the pressure switch is clogged or defective the machine may not drain or spin. The pressure switch is located in control assembly and looks like a kind of plastic disk with 4 or 3 contacts and with a long thin rubber hose connected to the switch. Clean the rubber hose and replace the switch if that does not work. While disassembling the control panel check also if tucked inside the control assembly you find the envelope with the tech sheet. The tech sheet will describe the diagnostic procedure that may be useful to find out what the problem is.

Pressure switch is a common fault causing drain problems . If the problem was not the pressure switch next step would be reading volts while machine is cycling to test control module and pump. For safety reason I suggest the users only performing tests and maintenance that can be done with power not-connected.

GE washing macine stops during the wash cycle


This is exactly what my machine was doing, as well. I fixed it by cleaning out the filter in front of the water pump.

Searching here, I found that you can remove the lower front panel (three screws along the bottom edge is all it takes) to get to the filter. With the panel removed, you'll see a round white plastic cover (about 3-4 inches diameter) that screws out. Get a bucket under the cover to catch the water that's in it (could be 2 quarts or more) and unscrew the cover.

The cover pulls out, revealing that is actually a screw-in plastic strainer. I found tons of coins, broken pens, paper clips, etc. in mine when I did this. A lot will be deep inside the black rubber hose that connects this filter housing to the washer drum. You can rake the stuff out with a bent wire clothes hanger. Shaking the black hose will help hurry the junk along and out of your machine. Screw the cover back on after the clean out and your machine should go back to normal.

Thinking about it, front loaders will have lots of small items flushed into the pump compared to top loaders. Coins you alway found in the bottom of the drum in a top loader, they all wind up in the filter of a front loader. And once it slow the drainage to a crawl the machine will shut down multiple times when it can't drain the water out completely, and it will never step up to it's max spin speed with all that water still in the drum.

My whirlpool front loader washer is about 7 years old and when I run it, it beeps and flashes F02. What does this mean and how do I fix it?


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases this means there is a clog in the drain pump and it needs to be cleaned. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

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.

Flashing F2


“F02” (Drain Problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked?
Is the drain hose frozen?
Is the drain hose clogged?
Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor?

After running this check list, plug back up and try a complete cycle using cold water and no detergent. Sudding can mimic a drainage issue as well. make sure you are using the correct HE detergent to prevent over sudding.

F02 is a drain problem. I took the back off the washer and cleaned out the drainage hose and I guess its a holding tank before it goes out. Both were very clogged with STUFF cleaned it all out now it works better than ever.
