"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

Here is what the manufacture says about F02 - Below this are my comments

If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are
turned off and “F/02” is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display.
NOTE: After four minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed,
then four minutes later the “F/02” error code will be
displayed.

Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make
sure the pump is running.
4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
5. Plug in2_bing.gif washer or reconnect power.
6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
8. Replace the pump.

Phil's comments---->
If you washed a rug with a rubber backing or small articles like baby socks you may have a plugged up pump. To access the pump lay on the floor and remove the 3 screws holding the lower panel of washer on. Pull down and out on the panel to remove. Lay out a lot of towels under the unit, I mean a lot... Look in the center for a white cap about the diameter of a large cup, it will have a handle on it to turn, turn this left(counter clockwise) to unscrew. This will unscrew and pull out, but be careful when it comes out so does all the water. Clean out the trap that is in your hand and anything you see or feel in the sump area the trap came from. Reassemble and test. If this does not work you will more than likely need a new drain pump, that is the component on the right of that trap you just cleaned out.

    Error code f 02


    I think it's a slow drain fault. But would need full model number to say for sure. Still it wouldn't hurt to check the drain pump for crud. Here are some vids that might help. Don't worry too much about brand specifics. Many brands share identical and similar parts.

    I have a kenmore elite he 3 front load washer...im getting f error 02. it runs fine until the end of the cycle will not drain or spin.


    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    With Kenmore Elite front load washer, what is F02 error?


    Hi


    Thanks for using FixYa. F/02 error means Long Drain. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
    • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
    • Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
    • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
    • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.
    Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
