The symptoms you describe are typical of a broken lid switch. The lid switch is located under the washer top on the right hand side. It is activated through a slot by a small plastic piece on the lid called a "lid strike". Make sure the lid strike is still installed and not broken. Make sure the lid switch itself is not loose, as well. There are two mounting screws along the washer tub opening that hold it in place. If the screws become loose the switch will not make contact with the lid strike when the lid is closed. If you need to replace the switch or lid strike, the parts are available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Top and Lid" heading on the next page. The lid switch is listed as item number 22 (part #3355806) and the lid strike is listed as item number 16 (part #358684). Both parts combined will cost you about $30. If you have further questions and/or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Yes...the "F02" error code is a "Long Drain" error. The washer will not spin if it cannot drain the tub, first. The following link explains how to diagnose and correct the problem:
In most cases this is nothing more than a clogged drain pump. Folow the steps outlined in teh link provided on how to check and clear the drain pump and drain lines. Now...it does not take much to damage these pumps. If anything has been left in the pump for a significant period of time it can cause irrepairable damage to the pump impeller and/or motor. The result: a drain pump that MAY run, but won't actually pump anything.
If this is the case, you will need to replace the pump. Replacements can be obtained at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your COMPLETE model number and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading for item number 10. This next link will provide you with the steps necessary to replace the pump (if required):
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.
