This one is very easy. I paid the Sears guy $180 to come out and fix mine. I had my fiance watch him do it so she could walk me through it the next it happened. Sure enough (we have 4 dogs), it happened again one month later and I was easily able to fix the problem. You'll need a torx wrench, some towels, and a pan. On the very bottom, in the front of the washer, are two torx screws, one on each side. unscrew these and pull the lower front panel down and out. Behind this panel, in the middle, is a white plastic piece with another torx screw at the bottom. Remove this screw and pull the plastic piece forward and up. Pull it forward so you can slide a pan underneath it. There's going to be a lot of water. Put towels underneath the pan. Unscrew the center plastic piece. It will be tough but it turns counterclockwise to unscrew. Unscrew this and water and often times a big plug of debris will come out. Depending on how big your pan is, you will probably have to quickly screw the center piece back in before your pan fills up. Empty the pan and repeat until there's no more water. Inspect the center piece for any debris and clear it. Reinstallation is the reverse. Congrats, you saved $180.

Sometimes the water will not drain out, of my Kenmore Elite HE3 washer and it will display 02F. The door will not open, when I press the drain/spin button it makes a funny noise, won't drain, nor will it...


Hi, You pump filter screen is clogged up of you may even actually have something stuck in the pump. Unplug machine, remove the bottom front panel 2-3 screws along the bottom. look for the filter/screen housing next to the pump. place a shallow pan under it. Be prepared for lots if water and debris. Unscrew it slowly to drain then screw it back in to shut off and dump pan repeat until no longer full of water. Remove and clean all debris out screen, housing and hose.

Sud keeps popping up on the display or 02F flashes & then it stalls.....help!


I just fixed mine. Take off the the front kick paned (3 screws), in the center inside is a handle, turn it, but be careful a ton of water comes out. Inside there is a plastic cylindr that was coated and plugged up with a bunch of smelly linty type yuk. I cleaned it out real well and it works and smells great.

02f code


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F/02 error means Long Drain. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • 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.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

My kenmore elite HE3 front oading washer says 02F


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. 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 can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

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.

When pressing the start button a "DL" indicator flashes and then a "F" indicator remains, door does not lock and the washer will not start.


that is the code for door lock. ensure its not stuck or something in rubber boot stopping door from closing all the way and try to reset it.
maybe by unplugging it for a coupkle of minutes

Something chewed up


What you have is called spider failure. This is the three spokes that connect the basket to the spindle. The plastic is shavings of your tub.You need to get the rear of the tub replaced and the basket replaced.
