Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
Sometimes I get this code, looking for the answer
I had the same or similar problem, after troubleshooting with the above post to no avail I started taking the maching apart.
Here is what fixed my F02 code:
1 Took off bottom plate below the door revealing the inside of the machine
2 Carefully unscrewed the plastic filter trap
3 It was stuffed with all sorts of junk so I emptied it
4 Replaced the Filter trap where it goes
5 Put the bottom plate back on below the front door
All along the filter that helps keep the drain lines from clogging was clogged itself, if you havent checked yours ever it might be a good idea to look inside.
Hope this helps someone

"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This usually means the drain pump or drain lines are clogged, or you have a pump that is malfunctioning. Restarting the washer will not clear this code. The following link explains:
If you need to replace the drain pump, they can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. You can use any web source you like, but these, I have found, offer the best service and pricing. Shop all of them for the best price. Just use your model number (located around the door opening) for your search criteria.
Hopefully you won't require any parts. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
