Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer

Model MFW9800TQ0 Frontload washer has draining issue F02 error

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!!!

    Not only did i fix my problem, I found my wife's diamond ring and other junk you would not imagine would be there. I will say the only problem I had was finding the round white plug because I was looking for a small plug and it is the size of the top of a soda can. Thanks for the tip, I saved some money. Also, I found the instructions for the repairman in this section.

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.

What is code message F02?


Repairing the F02 error code can usually be done without ordering parts. Tools needed to repair your whirlpool Duet F02 error code are towels and a quarter inch socket.
Tip the washer back at a 45 degree angle. On the bottom panel there are three or four screws, with the screws removed the panel will slide down and off. With the lower access panel now removed you will have access to the washers drain pump clean out.
With the water already bailed from the washer you can twist the filter head counter-clockwise to remove. Twisting the filter head counter-clockwise will loosen filter so it can be pulled out.
With the filter out clean and install it back into washer.
Run a quick cycle to ensure the washer is back up and running and the F02 error has disappeared. If the error comes back, it may require you to clean the drain pump filter again.
If you require a new drain pump motor, you can purchase the part from the link below.

Kenmore elite Ht3, SUD/F02 alert


"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.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Kenmore frontload works with no load but fails with clothes


Suspect the drum motor. Sounds like a burned winding in the motor which will open when hot and not work under any load.
