Most likely (it happened to many owners), you get the FO2 code, because some small items like socks got sucked into drain system.

Maytag washer throwing fault code 21


An "F21" or "F02" error code is indicative of a slow draining cycle, normally caused by a clogged or kinked drain hose. If an "F21" or "F02" error code appears, check the drain hose on the back of your washer to ensure that it is not clogged or bent. Once the drain hose has been unblocked, the error code should disappear and the machine drain properly. However, if you have a high efficiency washing machine and the error code continues to appear, make sure you are using the correct detergent; because high efficiency machines use much less water than traditional washing machines, they require the use of a low sudsing detergent. Traditional detergents may produce too many suds, which can block the machine's drain hose and lead to slower draining cycles.

What does it mean when sud appears on the display screen and the washers seems like its not doing anything?


Hi, W/D here.
What you are seeing is the suds (SUD) error code, and is sometimes followed by a long drain fault code (F02).
This does not necessarily indicate that you need to change anything at this time. When the machine senses too much suds, the error code is displayed, when too much suds are actually present, a longer drain time results.
Duets are HE (high efficiency) machines, and require a detergent that produces little suds. If you are using HE detergent, cut back on it until you can run a cycle without getting the SUD/F02 alarms. If you are not using HE detergent (we don't either), you really have to be careful with the amount of detergent used.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Run a cycle without any detergent to flush the machine.
You need to check that the drain hose isn't plugged or have a kink in it.
Make sure that the pump is running. You may need to check the electrical connections at the pump.
Check the filter on the drain pump for debris or foreign objects, which might cause the drain cycle to be extended, if you are also getting the F02 code.
If limiting the detergent, and nothing was found in checking the other items listed, then the pump may need to be replaced.

Best regards, --W/D--

What does the symbol code "suds" mean?


SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle)
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.
  • If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
  • Check Drain Pump
  • Check Pressure Switch
  • Check CCU

F02 problem. Took drain hose and cleaned that out but it didnt help. Is there another spot to clean out?


if the pressure switch detects either water or suds, it commands the drain pump to continue. After 8 or so minutes, if it's still detecting water or suds, the F02 error is displayed.

try the following :
1. Check Wire Harness connections -
2. Check Drain pump. , as water drains at a rapid rate
3. Check Drain pump motor - , as water drains at a rapid rate
4. Check that the Drain hose and Drain Pump Filter is clear of
foreign objects. – , run a cable through both hose assemblies (exterior and interior) and to check if blocked.
5. Check the CCU –.
6. check for kinks in the hoses, and the height of the pump if beyond what the manual recommends.

if okay then check the Pressure Switch if stuck then run many Rinse and Normal cycles with no detergent and if you still get this F02 error. checked the state of the Pressure Switch’s Empty and Level 1 contacts which intermittently reported correct water level condition (EMPTY and Level 1). In all cases is contacts 11 and 14 (SUDS) continuously made (connected) irrespective of water level, rinse conditions and the use of no detergent.

Iremove the pressure switch and test it by blowing into the inlet and check to hear the switch click, test the switch
blew into the pressure switch hose to clear the blockage,

Kenmore Elite washer HE4t keeps giving us a F02 error code??


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. The pump should also be checked. Remove the hoses from the pump and using a flashlight, look into the suction port on the pump. Make sure there are no obstructions (like the occasional stray sock). Also check the pump impellers and make sure no blades are missing/broken and that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are missing/broken or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Hit pause to add other clothes to the cycle, stopped running and now flashing sud and nothing happening. can't stop the machine to start over






Hi

This happens when SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle). The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds. You need to follow these steps:

  • If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
  • Check Drain Pump
  • Check Pressure Switch
  • Check CCU

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

F02 fault on a hot point washer says motor jammed


Hi, 

I suspected suds build up, so I tried both regular wash cycles (e.g. Normal) and Rinse and Drain cycles multiple times to clear suds in the system, but still received the F02 error. Sometimes the SUD error message came up, but not consistently.

I ran the built-in Diagnostics tests. It made it to C:06 then got stuck.

In both scenarios above, the washing machine continued to try to pump water out, despite the fact that all the water had already been drained. After 8 or so minutes, the F02 error came on. As I understand it, if the pressure switch detects either water or suds, it commands the drain pump to continue. After 8 or so minutes, if it's still detecting water or suds, the F02 error is displayed.

I performed the following with no success:
1. Check Wire Harness connections - OK
2. Check Drain pump. – OK, as water drains at a rapid rate
3. Check Drain pump motor - OK, as water drains at a rapid rate
4. Check that the Drain hose and Drain Pump Filter is clear of
foreign objects. – OK, ran a cable through both hose assemblies (exterior and interior) and not blocked.
5. Check the CCU – appears to function normally.
6. There were no kinks in the hoses, nor was the height of the pump beyond what the manual recommends.

After more diagnostics and troubleshooting, I found that the Pressure Switch was stuck and reported the SUDS state (continuity made between contacts 11 and 14 on the Pressure Switch itself). I ran many Rinse and Normal cycles with no detergent and still got this F02 error. I checked the state of the Pressure Switch’s Empty and Level 1 contacts which intermittently reported the correct water level condition (EMPTY and Level 1). In all cases contacts 11 and 14 (SUDS) were continuously made (connected) irrespective of water level, rinse conditions and the use of no detergent.

I removed the pressure switch and tested it by blowing into the inlet and did hear the switch click, so it seemed to work properly. Given the diagnostics above, I concluded that the pressure switch hose must have been clogged.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Error codes


I own a HE3 kenmore elite for 4 years now and the troubleshooting codes are: SUD When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This causes the cycle to go longer to remove the excess suds. Reduce detergent amounts or use HE detergent. The F02 error I had with mine and it is a drain problem. Book says check the hose for kinks, clogged or is it more than 96 inches above the floor. On mine it was the fan pump on the forward motor that drains the washer. It was worn and not pushing out the water fast enough. You will hear a high pitched whine at the front bottom of the washer if this is bad. To reset the washer from the F02 error, select pause/cancel twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or dissconnect power. good luck
