If you need to clean out the drain pump reservoir, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

If you check the drain pump reservoir and any problems persist, you may have a pump with a damaged motor/impeller, or something lodged in one of the drain lines. In particular, the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump.

I recommend you remove the inlet hose, as well, and inspect for clogs. In is common for small garments to become lodged in this area and restrict water flow to the drain pump. Check the output drain line for obstructions as well.

It does not take much to damage these small drain pumps. If any error codes are generated, it is caused by the drain cycle exceeding 8 minutes. So...if the impeller or motor become damaged, and the pump does not pull water at the correct volume, you may still experience the drain error. In this case, you will have to replace the pump in order to get the error to clear. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

Replacements can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

NOTE: For an explanation of all the error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front fett of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.

Read through the information provided and let me know if you have any further questions. I hope you find this information helpful.

It sounds like your Drain pump has either become clogged, or has burned out.
  1. First, disconnect the power to the machine.
  2. The drain pump is located at the bottom of the machine. You will have to remove the panel to access the drain pump, or you can access the drain pump from the bottom of the machine after you have removed the water from inside the machine.
  3. The drain pump has 2 hoses connected to it, and a wiring harness.
  4. Disconnect the hoses and wiring harness and remove the drain pump.
  5. Check the impeller inside the drain pump for coins, socks, etc. and clean it out if you can. Make sure it turns with ease, and isn't worn out, or rocking back in forth. If it is worn out, replace the drain pump.
  6. If after clearing the drain pump and reassembling, and the machine still fails to drain, replace the drain pump.

This advice is for Kenmore Elite, Whirlpool Duet and Maytag Epic model FRONT LOADING washing machines. If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here’s the information you need to check the drain pump:

  1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
  2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
  3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
  4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
  5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
  6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
  7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
  8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT – DO NOT FORGET!).
  9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console – DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). “C00” will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
  10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
  11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
  12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.

NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “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.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

Sounds like there might be something in the pump that got past the button trap. You will have to remove the pump to check it.

My kenmore front loader sounds like I am wahsing a rock


You have offered a fairly vague description (cycle stage in particular would be useful).

Based purely on your description of the noise, it might be a pump obstruction - often a bra wire or similar item can block the pump.

If you are comfortable to investigate yourself then proceed as follows -

1. Turn the washing machine off at the mains supply and isolate/unplug.

2. Tilt the machine back and access the drain, usually located at the front, below the drum, often behind a flap - DO NOT LOOSEN/REMOVE THE DRAIN PLUG - Place a basin under the drain.

3. Remove the drain plug (often there is a small retaining screw securing the plug, remove it and keep it safe)

4. Allow the drum to drain into the basin until empty

5. Look into and feel around the opening exposed by removing the plug - if there is an integrated filter, clear it and remove any remaining obstructions from the waste pipe & pump, including the typical aforementioned bra-wire/s, wet fluff & dust etc.

6. When satisfied that all is clear, reassemble the outlet and re-secure the plug with the retaining screw if present.

7. Place the machine back on the level, reconnect the power and check its function.

Washer won't drain


You either have a foreign debris trapped inside the drain pump or the drain pump is broken.  You will need a qualified LG technician to repair this problem.

Water is leaking from the underneath, at the front of the machine


The drain pump is located at the front, underneath. The drain pump has probably failed and will need to be replaced.
