Question about Bosch Washing Machines
I experienced the e-13 error. I went on line (you tube)and all it should be only the task of cleaning the hoses entering and exiting the drain pump as well as the drain pump. Reassembled. Didn't work. Did some more investigation on youtube and found different sites to discuss the problem. The overwhelming answer was the drain pump needed to be replaced. I ordered a new pump and installed the pump. I put back all parts, door any cables and any hoses. I also had a prayer asking for divine intervention. Turned the wash cycle to begin and i was estatic as i could be at it making noise but during the sloshing sounds coming from the washer were joy to my ears. This joy lasted about 30 min. which is exactly the time it goes into drain mode and at that time the little drain tolls worked their magic the e13 err or reared its vicious head and left ,me faced with a broken down washer for the third/fourth week, I am at my crossroads where one road leads to a new washer (not a Bosch) or take money and throw in into the wind, by trying to repair the washer i have. I've looked at the washer parts schematic/parts cost and find the costs for buying the electrical board would be cost prohibitive. This leaves me searching for an answer to resolve this hair pulling problem. Help
I had a similar problem my LG would sometimes wash and other times I received a code(forgot the code it's been awhile)it wouldn't drain, I changed the pump etc.. I had the repairman at the house three times finally PC Richards replaced the washing machine. However after a week the same code came up. I and checked the voltage at the outlet and it read good. So, I checked the voltage while machine was running and I had 89V. I had a bad circuit breaker changed breaker problem solved! I hope this helps.

If the drain lines were plugged, there may have been enough pressure on the pump to fault out. Make sure the sewer line is completely open, as well as the lines at the pump.

First thin I would try is to check your thermal fuse for continuity.
Its located on the tunnel that incases the heasting element.
Try putting the machine into diagnostic mode. If it won't enter diagnostic mode, then you need to replace the main control board.
You also want to check the drain hose, the end of the hose is tapperd and tends to collect lint. Run a coat hanger up the hose and see if you can fish something out also check that belt.

I assume you have removed the lint filter at the bottom of the machine and cleaned it out to make sure the pump is not stalled on a 1 pence or bra clip. Can you hear the motor start to spin? If not its probably because the water level switch is gunged up at the bottom of its rubber tube where it comes from the drum. Remove the top of the machine and locate the pressure switch - usually a round black or white device about 80 to 100mm across with a rubber pipe on a small spout 8mm diameter. Take the pipe clip off using pliers to compress it and move it back down the pipe. Remove the pipe and blow hard down the pipe to try and clear the blockage - you will hear bubbles blowing in the bottom of the drum water. Also you could very very gently blow into the switch stub pipe and listen for it changing over - clicks usually twice each way - blow - two clicks, release - two clicks. Restore swtch pipe and try the machine again. Good luck.

SOURCE: F02 Error Code on Kenmore
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your information posted I understand you have the Kenmore HE3t washer, correct ?
Reading your description and factoring in all you've done and inspected, it may in fact be a faulty pump...(the F02 ultimate worse case) even if it is draining slowly it does not rule it out, trust me I've seen many of them.
By reading your post I've gathered you are pretty thorough so I don't expect you missed it, but I must mention it or I wouldn't be thorough either, I think you can appreciate that, have you checked the back-flow/check ball ?
If not, here's how...
Pull the boot off if you have not and just see if anything has got in there to obstruct the "ball" from working correctly. It is shown here...(this is from the back, but you can do it from the front...just not as easily...in my opinion)
Undo the clamp and inspect inside...if you have not already.
It's amazing how often I find this ball "stuck" or the bellows clogged with debris of all sorts of items...definately worth looking into before declaring the pump has failed. Good luck. Let me know how you make out as I said and if I can help you in any manner going forward I will do whatever I can.
I've also included a more thorough link of my repair tip below
