There should be three screws in the bottom panel of the washer. Remove the screws and the pull panel down and off. There should be a clean out drain on the pump - so,...you're gonna need a bucket. Hope this helps...(and good luck).

F2 Error message. I've checked the hose. No


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that there's an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, the drain pump reservoir needs to be checked and cleaned. The access screws are on the lower toe panel directly below the door in the FRONT of the washer. They are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may need to prop up the two front feet of the washer to access them (a 2x4 works well for this). The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

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. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

Replacements can be purchased online at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I'm getting An F2 message on my washer followed by a beep. The washer is not draining correctly.


F2 is a suds problem.

There is an excessive amount of suds in the system and this affects the sensor and causes the drain pump to run and run and run until it shuts off from overheating. This is why we get the F2 and/or suds error code. Once a month, run the machine on the hot water cycle with a cup of bleach. This will clear out any suds build-up. Good luck :)

F2 My washer freezes during mid cycle


"F02" is a Long Drain error code, which usually means you have an obstruction in the drain pump, drain lines, or the drain pump has failed. If the drain pump will not function, the washer will not complete, or restart a cycle. The following link explains:

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

Sometimes you may also get a "SUD" error in conjunction with this error due to the detection of air in the drain pump (lack of water flow). If cleaning the drain pump reservoir, and checking all the drain hoses does not correct the problem, you may have a failed drain pump.

Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, repairclinic.com or pcappliancerepair.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing so shop all of them for the best price.

If you have any questions about this repair please let me know. I hope this helps you.
