You may need to check the drain hoses that lead to the drain pump and look for any kind of restrictions,or some thing stopping the impellar wheel from turning in order to drain the water

My F09 and my E01 codes keep coming on in mid cycle and shutting down the cycle


F09/E01 are related codes.

LONG DRAIN: If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes without reaching reset level in pressure sensor, the valves are turned off and the drain pump will stop running. NOTE: Suds can cause delays in draining. Washer drains for 4 minutes, pauses 5 minutes, then tries again for 4 additional minutes of draining. F9E1 will display if washer does not drain. (Normal drain takes less than 2 minutes)

Possible Causes:
Verify that the drain hose is not blocked or kinked.
Make sure drain hose is not sealed into drain pipe.
Make sure the drain hose height does not exceed 96" (2.4 m).
Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
Check connections from tub to air trap, air trap to pressure hose, and pressure hose to pressure sensor.
See TEST #8 (Drain Pump) on page 19. Is pressure hose pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?Is pressure hose pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?Is pressure hose pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?

This code means that the machine is not evacuating its water.

  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.

  • Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

Stops in cycle and says f 02


F02 error is related to drain pump block.If the drain pump gets blocked or the drain hose is blocked the error comes up,this is indication of cleaning the drain pump and drain hose.If the drain pump and drain hose checked ok then its faulty drain pump,its not draining the water so the error f-02 is showing up. error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Remove the wide tapering pipe from the drum to the pump. Inside there is a non return ball valve. Clean this and see if that helps. Take the front bottom panel off and open the drain trap,and see if there is any thing got stuck up,like coins,nails,socks or any small cloth etc etc.--------------While removing the drain pump and drain hose for cleaning,please keep thick towel with you.As you disconnect the drain pump from its connection,lot of water will flow towards you,if your machine is filled with water.So keeping this towel with you will help to control this water flow towards you.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

MY WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER BEEPS AND CUTS OFF 2 MINUTES BEFORE CYCLE ENDS DISPLAYING F 02 CODE?


The F 02 error code is a long drain problem. It could be that there is something clogging the drain line or a kink in the line, the drain pump trap is clogged, something lodged in the drain pump or the drain pump not working properly.
Here is some info I found on this site to help me clean out the drain pump trap and to replace the drain pump if cleaning it out doesn't work for you.

Kenmore Elite: Won't complete cycle


“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.

Washer won't drain


That is, in short: FO2 is the code for long drain. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 screws. The panel will drop and come off. The filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in.
