Question about Washing Machines
You have a pump problem. F02 is a pump error code. Something is probably clogged up in the pump filter. Remove lower front panel, pump is at center bottom. Make sure as much water as possible is removed from basket then unscrew pump filter cover. Remove filter and clean then reinstall. Washing something with too much lint or using a high sudsing detergent can cause SUD or F02 error. If problem continues you might need a new pump.

"SUD" is a SUDS detect error. This can be an indication of a restriction somewhere in the drainage system, a failed drain pump, you are using too much detergent, or you are using the wrong type of detergent. The following link explains the error in more detail and how to correct:
You may have some foaming action going on inside the drain pump caused by the vinegar mixing with soap residue in the lines. Allow the washer to sit for 30 minutes, then run a Rinse/Spin cycle with nothing in the washer. You may have to do this several times in order to clear any suds.
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. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:
Replacements can be purchased online at any of the following websites:
