your inlet filter is most likely plugged.
take of your hoses from the machine and clear the filters in the machine inlet ports.
If this does not help your inlet valves are broken.
But most likely the filters is the good bet

Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!

This will redirect you to a site to check and see if your drain pump is not functioning correctly. I would be willing to bet that therein lies your problem. Quite usually the pump itself runs fine however there is debris inside that will cause the pump not to function correctly. I. E. Dirt, Lint, heck I've even found a diamond necklace that had been lost that way.
Other things you can check without tearing the case off is to make sure that the hose is not kinked or clogged. I've seen sometimes where hair will get caught up in there as well.

If you have cleaned the drain pump and checked ALL the drain lines (this includes the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump), then you may have to replace the pump.
Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and cannot pump at the correct volume to complete the drain cycle, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.
The following link explains how to replace the drain pump (if required):
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I hjave listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.
If you are having problems with unlocking the washer, there is a manual release you can use to get the door open: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576511-door_jam_on_kenmore_elite_and_whirlpool_ The problem may just be a momentary glitch in programming related to the "F02" error code you are receiving. If there are any error codes present, the washer will not complete a cycle and will shut down. I would recommend double checking the drainage system one more time to ensure there's nothing caught in the pump impeller or any of the drain lines (you may have overlooked something), followed by replacement of the pump if the problem continues. This will hopefully cure any others issues you may be experiencing with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
