FO2 is the code for long drain. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

SOURCE: Kenmore elite HE3 front load washer won't drain or

Hi there
I have found this and i hope this gets you in the right direction. Merry X-mas and Happy New Year also.
Sud SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle)
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.

  • If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
  • Check Drain Pump
  • Check Pressure Switch
  • Check CCU
Thank you for writing to Fix Ya.
Best regards Richard

I am getting a FO2 code when it washes


make sure the pump is running. Check for foreign objects in pump and or filter. make sure pump is not over sudsing. maybe too much detergent or not using the right detergent. ( H. E. detergent is recommended ) also check to see if the drain hose is kinked. Pump might be defective if these ideas dont work.

F2 code coming on several times during a wash


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} FO2 is the code for long drain. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

Regarding 'suds', the junk in your filter could be affecting the thin tube going from the pump area to the 'pressure switch' near the controls. This should not be blocked, remove clip from top & blow into it (after cleaning out the filter). If blocked clear it out. Do not wait for filter to clog up. Check it now & then, according to usage.

Spinning and draining does not work, F error or sometimes Sud


Sud means you using to much soap and the f code means soap is locking the drain pump up and wont allow unit to drain and spin.
