Your filter could be clogged. You might want to try cleaning it if you haven't done it before, Its an easy fix to do. Here's how.

1.Turn power off at breaker or unplug the washer.
2.Unscrew the 3 star head bolts on the bottom panel.
3.Right in front of you you'll see a white plastic with 2 hoses going into it and a black box attached. It has a circular knob. That's where the filter is located.
4. Unscrew the 1 silver screw attaching the filter housing to the washer... this will make it easier to access the white hose clamp. Slide the housing towards you to free it from the washer frame.
5. Grab a bucket to catch the water that's in the hose and place a towel under the washer too, this will keep any stray water from going all over.
6.You can use a pair of Chanel lock pliers to squeeze the hose clamp on the smaller white hose while you pull it free from the housing, aim that hose into the bucket and shake it a bit to get any particles out until it stops draining.
7. Now you can unscrew the white circular filter knob to the left, be prepared for some water to come out, keep the bucket and towel handy for this.
8. Pull the filter all the way out and more than likely you'll be surprised by how much **** is in there lol, I had a small screw driver, a nail, coins and many other misc. debris.
9. Shake the filter housing a little while its over the plastic bucket to help drain excess water and crud out of the hose and housing.
10. Clean the filter and make sure all the holes are clear.
11. Reinstall the opposite way you took it apart but keep the lower panel off to make sure nothing is leaking after you do step 12.
12.Turn the power back on and press the cancel button twice and make sure the washer is set to spin and drain cycle and run and watch it off and on until its done.
13. Go ahead and put the lower panel back on.

Hope that helps :D

SOURCE: code f02 keeps coming up...

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

F 02 WARNING KEEPS COMING UP.. i FOLLOW THE MANUAL AND HIT THE CANCEL BUTTON TWICE AND UNPLUG THE MACHINE. I CHECK TO SEE IF THE LINE IS CLOGGED AND I CANT FIND ANYTHING.. THEN AFTER A WHILE IT STARTS BUT...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
F02 is a drain error in your whirlpool Duet washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display sud and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Making bad ckicking sound and f02 keeps coming up


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F/02 error means Long Drain. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

F02 keeps showing on display


If, after
four (4) minutes the pressure switch still senses foam in the wash tub, the Central Control Unit will
go into Failure Mode. The digital display will show, F02.
Cause: wrong detergent, too much of the right detergent, detergent placed in wrong compartment.

F02 Baumatic error not cleared Even when filter cleaned...?


Perhaps you need to check the outlet hose from the pump for a blockage, and of course, make sure the pump itself is working.

Kenmore HE3 front loader keeps getting F02 error message, most often when I wash towels. I was able to workaround by pulling half the load, but that no longer does the trick.


Long Drain

F02


If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects
• If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

F02 error on my kenmore elite H3


FO2 is the code for long drain. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels, a good big plastic bag or a wet vac to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.
