    The so called expert didn't even try to work me through the problem.

  • 3sdik Jun 22, 2009

    Thanks,



    I have already taken the pump out and unsreqwed it from the filter housing to inspect it but I see no propeller damage. By eliminating that what do you think I should check now?

    I think you are correct I will just replace the pump. I just ran it again and it is making a clicking noise. You have been helpful thanks fro the advise.

If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed. When the impeller is broken or, misaligned, it will make loud noises during the draining. I am most certain that this is a damaged pump impeller.

    Unfortunately, you cannot repair the impeller. this is a fixed device and, you will need to replace the entire pump.

    If the noise you stated is , indeed, coming from the drain pump, there is no other issue. you have checked the drain hoses and, filter. there are no obstructions as you stated. the only logical problem here is the pump. either the pump drive shaft or pulley is frozen or, the impeller is damaged. I'm not sure if the pump is housed in a clear compartment but, in most cases, you will need ot replace this pump.

    If the noise you hear originates from this device, you can bet the bank that it is damaged. There are no other parts that control the draining. its just a pump that is connected to a couple of hoses and excape device. check the outside drain hose. unscrew it form the back side of the unit and, take a look inside the outlet hole.

I have a kenmore elite h3 washer - Bad Water Pump?


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

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(located, and mounted on the actual pump)
If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

If your washer fills, agitates, drains, but will not spin, the likely cause is the gear case (transmission). A new gear case can run about $200 just for the part. With labor, this could be a bit expensive to repair. I hope this helps you some.
