Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:
Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.
If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. Using the wrong detergent can cause excessive wear on the seals and pump impeller parts as regular detergent is formulated to be used in a standard wash tub with a 35 gallon capacity. So, if you use this detergent in a High Efficiency washer, you are putting a higher concentration of detergent in a wash tub that only uses 5 to 7 gallons of water. This added concentration can act as a corrosive. Some manufacturuer warranties will be voided if you do not use HE detergent.

F 02 error means that is Clogged drain filter.
Remove lower front panel, Torx driver required. Open the filter, the front cover spins off. Remove baby sock, dog hair, and fibers from curtains and replace cover. Mount front panel, set washer down. Plug in and test. Hope this video will help u to learn more about your washer.

I'm an owner as you and do all my repair on multiple FAV6800A machines.
I don't feel from the info supplied that you have a drain pump/drain line issue because you do not take a "ND" error code for "no drain" during the wash cycle.....the wash cycle completes. I don't believe you have a stuck slightly open water inlet valve in the machine because I feel the machine would eventually over fill and flood the laundry area in time.
Is there any standing water in the wash basket when you remove the wet clothes after the final Spin Cycle?
I would place the machine in Service Mode and run it thru a Quick Spin Test (with a wet load) and record the fastest RPM speed the wash basket will spin up to.
You need the Service Manual to help you get into Service Mode to do the test. Are you going to DIY or call in repair service?
If you want to run the Quick Spin test I will look for a previous post on this forum where I called out the process steps.
