The F 02 errors in these machine means "Long Drain". 9 times out of 10 this is an issue with the pump. Pump problems plague these machines, not because they are faulty, but because things get inside them. Foreign objects like pencils, paper clips, etc. Generally you can remove the obstruction and resume using the washer. If you are unlucky, something damaged the pump and it will need to be replaced. Naturally there can be other causes to an F2 error, but this is the most likely.. by a loooooong shot :)

If you are a do it your self type of person, I can tell you how to take care of the pump yourself. This would require some tools and might get a little messy tho. Glad to help either way!

Depending on where the pump is purchased, it can cost anywhere from $120 - $200. good luck!

My Duet front loader.. once it starts washing it stops and an error f2 code comes up and it will not complete the washer the clothes are left wet. if i move to spin only it still wont same code comes up


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F2 is a drain error in your washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F2. 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.

I have an HE 3 front loading washer and I am having problems with


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F2 error means Long Drain. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F2" is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Also, check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. Then check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. If still the issue is not resolved then replace the pump.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

Whrilpool duet front loader washer flashes f2


HI. this code represents a Long Drain issue.

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• 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..

*&^% screws!!!


F2 = Long Drain. Most common cause is something (or lots of things) stuck in the drain pump. There are screws at the bottom of the front panel that can be removed to check it out. If the screws look like stars they are Torx head screws, get driver from most home centers.
