Code f-2 indicates a long drain or pump issue. chances are you pump is clogged. remove the lower panel on the front of the washer by removing the 3 screws under the panel. once that is out of your way you will see the pump right in the middle. you will also notice that the pump has a removable filter in it.

first go get a mop bucket to catch the water. remove the single screw in the front pump support(if it has one) and then pull the pump forward some so it will hang out the washer just enough to reach the bucket. loosen and remove the filter piece slowly to allow water to drain out. also dont pull the filter to far out yet just incase you have to close it back up if the bucket gets too full.

once that filter is out you will probably find baby socks, lingerie, or just a bunch of change clogging the pump area. if you cant see any thing in there then you will need a new pump.

look up your washer by the model number here http://lartoday.com/order_parts.htm and order a new pump, probably around $100

What does F35 code mean and what to do?


  • Run an empty cycle without using any detergent. Often the fault code displays when too much detergent is used and the detergent sits in the drainage system. A cycle without any detergent is often enough to clear out the buildup.
  • 2 Pull the drain hose out of the standpipe mounted to the wall behind the washing machine. Complete a visual inspection of the hose for any clogs. If you see any, remove the screw that holds the hose clamp onto the discharge pump and then force water through the drain hose with pressurized water from a garden hose. Reattach the hose and then run an empty cycle to see if the code goes away.

    Error message SUD and F21 even after unclogging the filter


    Push the pause/cancel button twice to clear your message. Then run through a rinse/spin cycle. Next try a normal load without any detergent. SUDS is usually from too much detergent. If this fails, checked the hose for kinks. Check connections and if all that fails, you will probably have to replace the pump. Good Luck!

    What does it mean if the washer is not draining and has a flashing f where the time shows?


    I have the manual for this machine. Under "Code 21" it says the following:
    "F21" (Drain Problem) Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or disconnect power. Check the following: Is the drain hose kinked? Is the drain hose frozen? Is the drain hose clogged? Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor? Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
    For "SUDS" code, the following:
    "SUD" (Suds Routine) When excessive suds are detected, a suds routine automatically starts. This routine removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. "SUD" is displayed during rinsing to inform you that Suds Routine was activated. Use only HE (High Efficiency) detergents.
    Here is some more information that may help you as well:
    "F" Codes other than F20, F21 and F22 Select STOP twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer. Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.
    I hope this is of some help to you, Please rate and comment, Thank You

    Sears kenmore washer 110.42822200 error code sud


    SUD- Suds lock (Overdose of detergent detected during the wash cycle, or the actual brand is a non HE type)

    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.

    Possible Causes / Procedure


    • If too much detergent was used:

    A. Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
    B. Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.

    This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If the problem persist, follow this check list below.

    1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
    2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
    4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
    5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    6. Check drain pump.
    7. Check the pressure switch.
    8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.

    Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

    The code keeps flashing F 2 on my HE3 elite washer. It will not complete the cycle it keeps stopping then flashing F 2 and beeping?


    "F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. In most cases this means there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:

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

    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 and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

    NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.

    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.

    Whirlpool Duet ----"SUD" and "F02" code


    "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.
