SOURCE: Drain pump runs constantly:Error code E02

Suggestions: First see that the exit hose behind your machine is inserted at a particular height, ie about 3 feet above ground level, then into the standpipe in your wall. If things dont work plug off the wall, open up behind, you will see a thin pipe coming down from the pressure switch to the drain area. Disconnect this pipe carefully from the top and blow into it, it should be free. If blocked clear, if broken or damaged change. Refit carefully.

Could be a faulty inlet valve, or not enough pressure to operate valve,
Remove hose onto valve, and check the water is getting to it o/k,turning off the water to the valve before you undo the hose.
Hope this helps.

Hy, I have a washmasine bosch WAE28267SN that sow me an error E02 that's the error. Somebody can help me with some tips Thanks

The E02 error means that the washer is slow to fill. This can be caused by a problem with the incoming water hoses, the water valves or the washer draining as it fills.

The first thing to check is the incoming water if you have very little water in the washer. Make sure that the shut-off valves have been opened fully. If they were fully open, close them. If they were closed, check if that solves your E02 problem. Next remove the water hoses. A damaged anti-flood hose can reduce the water flow to a trickle. Clean the filters at both the shut-off valves and the intake valve on the washer. Replace the hoses at the shut-off valves. With a bucket below the hoses, turn on the shut-off valves and check that you are getting good flow. Now, attach the hoses to the washer. Check if the washer fills properly.

Check that the drain hose is positioned so that the outlet is above the water line of the washer. If your E02 issue continues and no water gets into the machine, then the inlet valve could be stuck in the closed position. If the washer is filling and the E02 error persists, then the water flow sensor may be a problem. This sensor has air tubes that can become clogged. Make sure that they have no dirt. There are other parts in this sensor that could be damaged.

Unfortunately, I don't have a source for parts for this washer. Some Bosch water inlet valves are available here: . If your washer is under warranty, contact Bosch.

I hope this helps.

Hello there and welcome to fixya

The error code "OE" indicates a drain error. This error will display if the washer is draining too slow or if it's not fully drained in within 10 minutes. This would also explain why it's not spinning properly.
The drain pump filter will need to checked and cleaned

I keep getting error code F21 on my kenmore elite which is a drain error the drain is not clogged and the drain hose is not clogged any ideas on what I could do?

The error code F21 is similar to F02 which both pertains to a draining problem. The usual cause is a blocked drain filter or a clogged/kinked. But since those areas are found to be not the source of the problem, the problem must be somewhere else. It is either the drain pump is broken particularly the impeller if the pump just hums/whirs or the pressure switch contacts are stuck/welded together and is, therefore, not tripping. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting instructions the problem of this kind after the drain filter has been cleaned out.

Error Code F02/F21 on Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite Front Load Washers (Filter Cleaned)

When my washer gets to the end of the cyle a error comes up saying F02 I have already cleanded the filter.

The fault code indicates a draining problem and the display can be cleared by pressing the Pause/Cancel button twice. Since the pump filter has been cleaned and the problem is not resolved, the problem is either a clogged/kinked drain hose, the pressure switch is stuck in the full position, or the pump itself is not working.

The pressure switch is stuck in the full position if the machine is completely drained when the error code flashes. It indicates that the pump is working and the drain hose is clear. Replace the pressure switch and it should address the problem. Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the machine then slide the panel rearward and off the cabinet.

Either drain hose is clogged/kinked or the pump is not working if the machine is still full of water when the error code flashes. Make sure the drain hose is free from clogs and kinks and the pump impeller is not stuck. Remove the pump filter then turn the pump impeller with your finger to determine whether it is stuck or not. Replace the pump if the impeller is stuck even without a single debris blocking it.

The drain hose is clogged/kinked if water does not gush out when drained manually by gravity into a basin or bucket. Blow air into the drain hose and you should determine if clogged or not. Also remove, check, and clear the tub-to-pump hose. It is the big black hose that connects the tub and the pump as the name suggests.

Check the resistance of the pump windings using a volt-ohmmeter. Dsiconnect the wire harness from the pump terminals then measure the resistance between the terminals with the volt-ohmmeter set to the lowest Ohm scale (R X 1). Nominal resistance of the pump winding is 10 ohms. Other than that, replace the pump.

Reconnect the wire harness if the resistance of the pump winding is good then recheck it at the wire harness connector in the central control unit (CCU). Replace the wire harness if there's any discrepancy in the resistance reading.

The last line of defense is the central control unit (CCU). It is apparent that the CCU is at fault if the drain pump winding and the wire harness are all good but the CCU fails to power up the pump. In this case, consider replacing the CCU.

We have F02 error message and nothing has worked.

If you have cleaned the drain pump and checked ALL the drain lines (this includes the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump), then you may have to replace the pump.

Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and cannot pump at the correct volume to complete the drain cycle, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

The following link explains how to replace the drain pump:

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I hjave listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

F02 error

"F02" is a Long Drain error code. The following link explains:

Usually this means the drain pump is clogged any needs cleaned out. There is a follow-on link included in the instructions I provided that explain how to do this.

Read through the link and follow the steps listed. If these preliminary measures do not work, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor on these drain pumps. Since the error occurs if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and not pumping at the required volume, the error code with continue to occur until the pump is replaced.

Replacements (if required) can be purchased at,,, or Shop all these sites for the best price.

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