Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
"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 searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. Shop all these sites for the best price.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: You cannot view the drain pump by tipping the washing machine back because it has a solid cabinet bottom that prevents viewing the internal cabinet components. It is NOT recommend to even attempt to tip this machine back due to its weight.

It may be a coin or something in the pump itself.
Pull the machine away from the wall and tip it back so it's resting against the wall.
Look up inside and you will see the pump, attached to a black rubber hose with a jubilee type clip. Remove this and check in the pump for a coin or whatever shouldn't be their. Refit the hose and try again.
