    further diagnoses indicates the pump motor is clog free. removed it completely from machine, no socks nothing inside, impeller is free of debris as well.

    the pump ohms out at 15.9 ohms
    the black wire going to the pump motor shows 39.5 volts.

    still does not drain, have to clean out with shop vac each time. could this problem be a hot or cold water solenoid, or a sudsing switch or ?
    ohm out the pressure swich perhaps?
    it appears i will have to replace the bellows around the door. it is leaking as well.

    any suggestions would be appreciated.

'Infinity' as ohms reading for pump means it's broken - there is a break in windings.
You'll need a new pump, I think.

SOURCE: WASHER DOES NOT DO FINAL DRAIN AND SPIN. USUALLY

Hello.

There are several reasons that a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work
down to the more difficult causes.

BELOW ARE TOOLS AND INSTRUCTION THAT WILL HELP IN SOLVING THE PROBLEM.

1 A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.

2 If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.

3 Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.

4 Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.

5 If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall.

Thanks.

Hello,

The F2 error codes means LONG DRAIN TIME and the suds code the washer detected water in tub after normal alloted drain time...so basically the F2&SUDS means the same thing. A lot of times when it does not drain fast enough,its caused by a blocked filter on the pump being biult up with debris. This tip i wrote will show ya how to clean the pump filter.

It won't drain or sometimes it drains slow.The F2 code will appear or the Suds code will show up.


The drain filter is blocked and needs to be cleaned. Unplug the machine or disconnect power then remove the three screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel and pull the panel down and off. Once the panel is off, you'll find the drain filter attached to the drain pump.

Place a container or a piece of towel
underneath the filter to catch spillage. You may need to drain the water from the machine by putting the end of the drain hose over a container on the floor. Position the container as low as possible to extract as much water.

Remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise and clean it.

Also take a moment to inspect the drain pump impeller by reaching it in with your finger and turning it. The impeller should turn freely. Otherwise, replace the drain pump.

It is not finishing a load it will not drain nor spin and I get the codes f2 and sud can you help


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

- Open the lower panel / door and locate the circular filter. (About 5 inches across.)
- Before removing the filter... drop the drain hose to floor level and get as much water out of the machine as possible.
- Get a cake baking pan and place under the filter to catch any water that drains out. (Have a mop near by!)
- Rotate the filter CCW 90 deg and pull it toward you to remove the filter.
- Once removed get a flash light and inspect the filter sump area for debris. (Reach inside and pull out everything other than machine parts!) You should be able to touch the pump impeller blades.
- Clean the filter.
- Install the filter by pressing it into place then rotating Clockwise 90 deg to lock it into place.

Try a normal load of clothes.
If you still get the F2 / Suds code there is a problem with the drain pump not working properly.

If you have further questions or need more help make sure you include your actual MODEL NUMBER in any future response.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Kenmore Elite, HE3t, front loading washer, Model 110.45972404. Constantly shuts down during cycle with SUD or F02 signals. If I pause and restart sometimes it works. However last night it would not drain...


F02 indicates the drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) Take care of lot of water going to the floor, unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

I think the drain pump is clogged due to SUD formation.

The following link explains the error in more detail and how to correct:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608687-sud_error

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 can be 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.

F2 constantly displays after was starts


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is usually an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, 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/r3608545-f02_error_code

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to access and 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.

What does F2 code mean with the Kenmore Elite HE3?


Based upon your description, the drain pump has either failed or the pump filter has become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) BE READY TO CATCH LOTS OF WATER. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

Whirlpool washer GHW9100LW F02 code - -what does that mean?


F02 – indicates a Long Drain error (Drain Exceeds 8 Minutes) - Select 'cancel' twice to clear error code.

Note: You may see a "SUD" error code appear first during this failure.

This should change to the F02 error code after a few minutes.
1. Switch off the machine, unplug the machine from the mains power and turn off the water supply to the machine.
2. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
3. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
4. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
5. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
6. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
7. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
8. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
9. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
10. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
11. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.
