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:

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

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:

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.

My washing machine gets a sud error often during the cycle. I have cleaned the drain as suggested


Vinegar does a great job of cutting suds and bubbles. I would put it in the detergent, softener, and bleach reservoirs and run a cycle. Then make sure you read the detergent amounts. It's easy to overdo detergent on a front-loader.

I have the kennmore elite he3t. Error code f 02 and it will not drain Is there a solution to this problem you know of?


The fault code indicates a draining problem and the display can be cleared by pressing the Pause/Cancel button twice. Either the pump filter is blocked, the drain hose is clogged/kinked, the pressure switch is stuck in the full position, or the pump itself is not working.

Disconnect power and
remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Click on the link below for further troubleshooting should the cleaning of the filter does not resolve the problem.

Kenmore elite he3t steam front loader - 110.4674-2 --- f35


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

We have a Kenmore Elite HE3t front loader washing machine.It has had water remaining in it after a load has finished twice now. I run it spin/drain and it is gone. Haven't had the problem for a few loads...


Hello. You sound like you have one of two problems.
The bottom panel on your washing machine has 3 screws on the bottom part of it that hold it on. You will need to remove these screws and the panel. On the right hand side you will see a plastic pump assembly. Since you have alot of water in the washer, you will need to lean the unit back at about a 45 degree angle so water won't go everywhere. Unscrew the front of the pump using the handle on it. It is either clogged up OR bad. If it is not clogged up, you will need to replace it. Send me the model number and I will get you the part number.
