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

    Thank you SO MUCH...fixed my problem, too (other than the fact I didn't get the cover to the filter screwed back on tight enough - LOL - I oughta know better than to close it up before I run a cycle to check! Live and learn!).

    To clean the plastic filter all you need to do is:

    1) Get a 7MM socket or appropriate male star screwdriver

    2) Remove the 3 screws that hold the bottom panel on the washer

    3)Place a towel under the washer and carefully unscrew the filter out of the assembly (about a half gallon or more of water will come out as you take the filter out)

    4)Remove all the debris from the catch basin in the filter

    5)Put filter back in and re-attach the panel to bottom of washer



    The whole process takes less than 10 minutes and is very easy to do. It had been a while since I cleaned mine out there were about a half dozen coins in it and some paperclips.

"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:

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

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.

The kenmore elite smart wash quiet pak 9 I opened the door and threw something else in and now a light is on thar says controls locked and it wont do anything


There should be a button on the control panel that says "open door" you need to push that button and wait for the washer to shut off before you open the door. Try pushing that button to see if that resets. My guess is that you broke the safety latch when you opened the door and it will need repair.

Kenmore elite smart Wash quiet pak 9 has got the control panel set to lock mode. How can we open it?


The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked. This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons. To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.
