Ok see the panel on bottom ok take the 4 screws under that out. Take that panal off there is a valve or white tube that you can unscrew ok have a bucket under it that is the lint trap slop of **** will come out with the water it was plugged up. You do need to do that once a month to keep it clean and so it don't smell. Whirlpool don't want you to know that so they make more money and you pay for service call. I know sucks put that's why I have a job

Why is it displaying f2 code and will not drain?


The F2 fault code indicates a problem with the washer's drain system, and you must troubleshoot the problem to determine how to fix the washer and clear the code.
Clogged Drain Hose The drain hose on a Kenmore washer should remain free of obstructions so the water drains from the washtub. the drain hose behind the washer can impede the flow of water from the washer. A drain hose inserted more than 4 1/2 inches into a floor or wall standpipe drain system can cause the water to siphon back into the washtub.
Stuck Water-Level Pressure Switch Your Kenmore washer uses a water-level pressure switch in the control panel to detect the level of water inside the washtub. You can find the pressure switch behind the control panel in top-load models or attached to the inside wall of front-load models. The round switch is approximately 3 inches in diameter with a clear or black plastic tube connected to the bottom or side of the switch. The tube runs from the pressure switch to the exterior washtub. As the water fills the washtub, it changes the air pressure inside the tube and lets the switch know when the water has reached a predetermined level. A stuck contact on the pressure switch can stop the advancement of the wash cycle and keep the water from draining. A few taps on the top of the switch with a screwdriver handle can release the contact and fix the problem causing the F2 error code.

What does f2 messege mean?


F2 This error code indicates that drain times are longer than expected.
If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.
