    Yes F02 error. Definitely some crud in the exterior drain hose. I poured water into the pipe and it seems to drain fine. I have now proceeded with removing the back panel and looking at the dark water remaining in the interior hose. Obviously there is a pump failure, whether this is to do with the pump itself or that there is so much sediment (crud) obstructing the flow is yet to be determined. 3 years ago I had a suds error and ventured into the back of the machine and pulled out a baby sock from the ball in the black hose beneath the wash basin. Put it back togehter and it's worked fine since. My only problem now is if it's the pump itself how the heck do I get to it. And is there electrical stuff-to-do with installing a new one?

    We have the same problem on our Whirlpool washer duet, front load. It was clogged, got most of the clog out, but we are concerned that the pump is not working correctly. How do we know if the pump has failed? Is it worth a service call and a new pump, or would it cost less to get a new washer. We have had this washer for only 4 years.

If this is a Kenmore or Whirlpool model, an "F02" error code indicates a "Long Drain" problem. This means you need to inspect your drain line and or pump to ensure there is nothing obstructing the drain. Can you please post back to confirm correct Manufacturer and Model number?

SOURCE: HE4t Elite F02 error code

I did exactly what tech17 recommended and it worked like a charm. I had a shop vac so that definitely helped with the draining process. After I unscrewed the filter, low and behold, my child's small sock was plugging the valve. Now to see it how it go there.

SOURCE: showing f02 error code...

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

SOURCE: Front load washer, F02 error is flashing on board.

F02 error means if the drain time has exceeded more than 8 minutes. After four minutes suds will be displayed on the screen and again after 4 minutes the F02 error code appears.


Check the drain line for any clogs or blocks which hinder the draining procedure..Use of more detergent can even cause this condition..Be sure you are using only 2 tablespoons of HE soap and not more than that.

Check your drain filter also and replace them if needed. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer. The drain/filter/pump is right in front.
