Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I get repeated F2 messages and when the washer is reset, it makes a low, rumbling noise. I have removed the drain hose and flushed it out (did not see an obstruction). Also have been getting the SUD message a lot lately.

"F02" is a Long Drain error code, which usually means you have an obstruction in the drain pump, drain lines, or the drain pump has failed. The following link explains:

The "SUD" error can commonly occur with this error due to the detection of air in the drain pump (lack of water flow). If cleaning the drain pump reservoir, and checking all the drain hoses does not correct the problem, you may have a failed drain pump.

If you have any questions about this repair please let me know. I hope this helps you.

What does f2 messege mean?

F2 This error code indicates that drain times are longer than expected.
If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Whirlpool washer model ghw9150pw0 has an error message of f2. The washer does not go thru the cycle and now the door won't open. Help whats wrong


This error code indicates that drain times are longer than it should be
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose from on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.
The most common cause of a slow drain is the drain pump screen is clogged with lint. Unplug the washer and remove the bottom front panel with 3 screws on the bottom. The drain pump will be right in the center usually white in color. There will be about a 3 inch piece that can be unscrewed by hand. Have your wet vac ready because when you start to unscrew this all the water in the machine will come out here. Once all of the water is empty completely unscrew and pull out. You will now be looking at the drain pump screen which with the f2 should be full of lint or debris. Clean the screen thoroughly and reassemble. If this does not fix your problem you will need to check all the hoses going into the drain pump for anything blocked in them. If all is clear you will need to check for 110 volts at the pump when the washer is in drain. This should only be attempted if you have had training with live voltage. If 110 volts exists the drain pump will need to be replaced.
Thank you

OE error message washer fills with water then just makes a grinding noise.

It is a long drain error. The washer is not fully drained after 10 minutes of draining. Remove the cabinet cover and check the following:

  1. Drain pump filter The filter maybe clogged with foreign objects, clean it. If the filter is damaged, foreign objects may get into the pump impeller and clog it. Keys, coins and pins in the impeller maybe causing the noise.
  2. Drain hose The hose maybe frozen, kinked, twisted or crushed. Repair or replace if necessary.
  3. Connector The connector may disconnected or disassembled. Reassemble or repair if necessary.
  4. Drain pump coil
    Check pump coil resistance between the terminals using an ohmmeter. Resistance should be between 10-20 ohms. If the resistance is too high or too low, replace the drain pump.
  5. Voltage Check the voltage between the connector in step 3 during spin. The voltage should be 120Vac, else replace the main board assembly.
Regarding the grinding noise, run the machine while the cabinet cover is open and check or observe where is the noise coming from. If it is coming from the motor:
  1. Check if the bolts are loosened. Re-tighten it loose.
  2. Replace the motor stator and rotor assembly if still noisy.

Flashing F2

“F02” (Drain Problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked?
Is the drain hose frozen?
Is the drain hose clogged?
Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor?

After running this check list, plug back up and try a complete cycle using cold water and no detergent. Sudding can mimic a drainage issue as well. make sure you are using the correct HE detergent to prevent over sudding.

Try this first.

Washer won't drain or spin
Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 96" (2.4
m) above the floor?
Is your voltage low?
Check electrical source or call electrician. Do not use an
extension cord.
Is the "SUD" routine active?
Cycle will complete once extra suds are removed.
Is the load balanced?
A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items
or redistribute the load.

Front Loader Frigidaire will not drain model no. LTF530FSO

check to make sure all hoses are not clogged - our washer hose before the pump was clogged due to washing a rug that had deteriorating rubber backing - would not drain until I flushed out the hose that goes from the tub t the pump.

Ge Profile Harmony Washer doesn't drain properly.

It sound like you have a blocked pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check where do you have this clogged, inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. Good luck!
