F2 is a suds problem.

There is an excessive amount of suds in the system and this affects the sensor and causes the drain pump to run and run and run until it shuts off from overheating. This is why we get the F2 and/or suds error code. Once a month, run the machine on the hot water cycle with a cup of bleach. This will clear out any suds build-up. Good luck :)

How do I reset on a F2 ?


Does it just say "F2", or "F2 E1" or "F2 E6" or some other "F2 - Ex" error code? On KitchenAid wall ovens, I would frequently encounter an F2-E6 error, and when you would press the Bake key, it would beep out a "morse-code" message (beep beeeeeeep beep beep beep). And in that case, you would have to replace the electronic oven control.

Cabrio washer f2 error code beeps won't start load


Long drain remove the bottom behind that that is a white tube under tube which has a knob for removal it is connected to the drain pump by a black tube you should get water out of this this is called the drain screen after you remove the screen look up into drain hose to make sure no other debris is inside also stick your finger where the tube leads to the drain pump and rotate the impeller if so good if not you'll have to separate the pump housing from the motor not hard reassemble everything should be good to go very seldom does the pump motor go bad.

Why does my whilpool duet washer flash F2: Its holding water and beeping.


First please verify this is a f2 and not a fo2 error
they mean almost the same thing i have it listed below
F/02 Long Drain
If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.
NOTE: After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

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

My washer, model number GHW9100LW2, is stopping when it gets to the drain/rinse cycle and showing an error message F2 on the display. What does the F2 error message mean?


“F02” is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

F2 My washer freezes during mid cycle


"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. If the drain pump will not function, the washer will not complete, or restart a cycle. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Sometimes you may also get a "SUD" error in conjunction 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.

Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, repairclinic.com or pcappliancerepair.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing so shop all of them for the best price.

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

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.
