Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer
Just all of a sudden without any reason just two weeks after one year it started to read a code F02 in a middle of a wash which means their is a draining problem according to Maytag manual. The washer is level and draining hose does not have anything clogged in it. Will do this regardless if any clothes are it in. Before I have to argue in having to pay for a service call when I'm just out of warranty for two weeks I figured I would try FixYa.
Thanks jworley60!!! Saved me a service call. I have a 9700 with the same issues and that filter had many interesting things in it (including four 1 dollar bills and one of those 3-in-1 washing sheets). One note, the panel is on the front and the screws are at the very bottom of the washer. If you do not have it on a pedastal, you may need to block it up a little to get to the one in the middle.

Yes it was a simple fix. There are 3 star screws on the very bottom of the front panel. There is a round white plug on the water pump that I unsrewed by hand. There was some water that spilled out so put down an towel or cloth.
I could not believe the clog that was in there. The washer is like new again. Thanks!!!

Had problem with F02 error code. Cleaned drain lines with snake and still had problem. Call repair man and he opened the bottom panel by taking off three screws, there is a filter like trap under washer, cleaned it out, and everything was just fine. As it turns out, we were using the new 3-in-one washing sheets and they were somehow making their way into the drain line and plugged it. This was a really easy fix.

Thanks for the tip, very easy and worked perfectly, but as your washer may not be draining if the drain in plugged, I would highly suggest having more than a towel handy to soak up water. We had a towel down but a couple gallons came out when we opened the trap.
