the machine is locked out on the control, go to the signal button on the far right side and hold the button in for four seconds and it will unlock the control and yu can select the cycle that you want

SOURCE: Blinking light cycle won't start
sounds as if you have a bad door latch assy, the unit is not recognizing the door closed, so when the button depressed probly only beeps 3 times at you. check the lock/latch for an obvious broken part

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

Welcome to FixYa.
The "F02" on your model of washer indicates the machine has detected a fault or obstruction in the drain process.
The same error as the "F21" on the later model Kenmore/Whirlpool units.
Chances are the pump itself is being obstructed by debris or some other foreign object as opposed to being faulty, although the faulty pump can`t be ruled out...yet.
Here`s how to check it and clean it...
Though it being full of water may make it messy. A wet-dry shop vac is handy in this situation.
If it is in a position that allows you too lean it back against something strong or a second set of hands it will help if tilted back almost all the way.
Careful not to hurt the machine or yourself, and undo the fill hoses and drain hose.
**Turn off the breaker at the service panel or unplug the washer from the wall socket...safety first**
1) locate the screws in front at the very bottom of the panel below the door and pull the panel down and forward until it is off. They will be either 1/4" hex head or #20 torx head screws.
2) You will immediately see the drain pump in front of you with a large removable filter. ( **see image below...this is were a wet-dry shop vac and towels come in handy, also the use of the removed panel as a catch pan is beneficial...but you may still get wet ) 3) Turn it counter-clockwise should allow you to remove it and inspect it and clean it out. Make a good thorough inspection inside the pump as well not just the removable filter.
4) Re-insert the filter and before placing the panel back run a test rinse/drain cycle to inspect for leaks and to verify the unit drains and spins now.
( If the problem still exist`s the "F21" will re-appear. If so you`ll need to check the hose/rubber bellows from pump to tub...back-flow ball...for other obstructions ).
5) If all appears OK after your efforts, well your efforts paid off...pat yourself on the back. You just saved yourself potentially a couple hundred bucks !
Now You should be good to go. Re-attach the lower panel and you`re back in business.
**NOTE: if this still fails to remedy the F21 or if it returns immediately during the next drain you may require a pump unfortunately...part # 280187 available at "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" etc.
**This however can also be caused by the back-flow ball inside the bellows which connects the tub to the pump. There is a large clamp which secures it to the tub, but if you remove it to clean out all the dirt built up inside, make sure you get it good and secure when putting it back.**
Let me know how it goes and if you require further assistance.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool duet
Whirlpool Duet front loading washer- my washer gets mostly thru the cycle,then just stops,and does 3long beeps,repeatedly,until i go over there and hit the power button(but still,all display lights stay on).. the one i have does not have a display,so theres no error code.. but its got water in it when it stops,and ive had to open the washer w/towels at the ready,to get some of the clothes out,to see if thats the problem...but even with nothing in there,the remaining water will not drain out...
