Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I have a F2 error code on my front load Kenmore washer, what should I do
Solution #2 was right on target. I wasn't able to get much water through the drain hose with the shop vac, so I just opened the door and vacuumed out the tub. After accessing the pump cover I just opened it slowly and let the shop vac take up the trickle of water.
We had several "color absorbing towels" that are used to soak up color from a load to protect other clothes stuck in the pump access area. They're just thrown into the wash (like dryer sheets in the dryer), so we won't be using those any longer.
Thanks for a great tip! It saved a service call, one week of washer down time, and a trip to the laundry mat.
“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
