Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer
My machine is not draining. I have tried unplugging. It is a Kenmore Elite HE3 quietpak
Did this.......amazing what's in there!
Be prepared with lots and lots of towels.
Alas, I ran the drain, spin and was rewarded with a sud error and now there is water in the washer tub.

Draining the water pump helped slove my F02 problem

Had same problem. Followed advice on post (i.e., remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter and voila!). Found one sock, a quarter, and some other junk clogging the drain. Saved $55 house service call. Thanks all!

Probably something caught in pump. Remove lower panel if this one has it and you will see the pump. Loosen the round cover in middle to access clean-out.

he F02 message is a long drain error and it may mean the pump is clogged or bad. You don't provide a lot of detail about if the water is draining out or not but the first thing to check for this error is the drain pump.
The image below shows how to access the pump and remove the filter. This may be your only problem. With the access panel removed you can also make sure the pump is running. Remember to unplug the washer before removing the access panel.
Check the pump for the F02 and make sure you're using HE detergent and there's not excessive suds.
