Look for it in the front of the machine bottom right, it is a door about 4 by 4 inches. If you cant find it look into your user manual under filter cleaning. Push to open, unscrew the plastic and be prepared for much water. Clean out the clogging and residue; this should be done periodically according to usage. What detergent does the book say, use front loading powders, they clean better.

Duet F-02 code


F02 is long drain.
Just because it came up doesn't mean there's a problem, it simply means there was a failure during the cycle, if it returns on a regular basis, you have a problem.

F02 error could be caused by the over use of soap, you need to make sure your using 2 tablespoons of HE soap, 1/4 cap at the most.

Over sudsing, could cause the water pump to run longer, the pump is designed for 15 min duty cycle which means, 15 minutes on to 45 minutes off. The computer may sense too much soap, and continue to pump. HE soap will cure that, along with SUD error, possible F09 (overflow condition), you may also notice the timing is wrong, HE soap works well in these machines and F/l washer go hand in hand

if the F02 returns the remove the 3 torx screws from the bottom kick panel, and remove the kick panel, right there in the middle you will see a big round handle, turn it and then slide it out, have some towels ready, there will be some water in there, and check to see if you have any thing in there that will slow water flow, tooth picks and other "floating" items may jam the impeller.

A friends HE3 would not drain. F02 error message was showing. The filter had coins, pencils, a wire from a bra, and a piece of cloth that was stuck in the pump impeller vanes. Cleaned it all out put it back together and it worked.
For others that encounter the same problem: (The fix is very easy).
Unplug the washer. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer. The drain/filter/pump is right in front. First remove as much water from the washer as you can. Place a large towel under the pump - a lot of water will come out when you remove the filter cover cap. Remove the drain filter cover cap by turning the filter cover cap counterclockwise. Remove the filter and check the housing and pump impeller vanes for debris (see if you can move the pumps impeller by hand). Clean the cover cap gasket and the gaskets mating surface. Replace the filter and close the cover cap firmly. Run a short wash cycle and check for any leaks at the filter cover cap. Replace the kick panel if none are found. Good luck.

My washer keeps saying SUD. what is wrong?


Hi
Error F02 appears after 8mins of SUDs error. Error F02 means Long drain, means washer is taking longer time than normal to drain. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. NOTE: After 4 minutes the SUD error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
? 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.

There are 3 small 9/32 hex head screws that hold the front panel on. Unscrew the 3 hex head screws (9/32 socket or nut driver size), now remove the front kick panel. Unscrew the white drain cap -WARNING-- lots of water will drain out when you loosen the white cap. Once all the water is out, remove and take out the filter trap.
Hope this helps... Please post back for more information

What does the code SUD F O2 MEAN


F02 error means if the drain time has exceeded more than 8 minutes. After four minutes suds will be displayed on the screen and again after 4 minutes the F02 error code appears.


Check the drain line for any clogs or blocks which hinder the draining procedure..Use of more detergent can even cause this condition..Be sure you are using only 2 tablespoons of HE soap and not more than that.

Check your drain filter also and replace them if needed. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer. The drain/filter/pump is right in front.

What is an F 02 code mean with my whirlpool duet?


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

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

In general , this usually means you have an obstruction in the drain pump and it requires cleaning. I provided a follow-on link in the instructions that explain how to do this.

Read through the link and follow the steps provided. If these preliminary measures do not work, it is recommended that you replace the drain pump. Since the error code is based on the volume of water pumped, if the pump impeller blades become damaged, or if the motor becomes damaged, the pump will not pump the required volume of water in the 8 minutes required. The error code will continue to appear and the washer will not run.

A replacement pump (if required) can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com or repairclinic.com. The pump is sold as an entire assembly.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
