Duet washer door locked

Had F02 error (suds related). Unplugged machine overnight, error gone. Water still in washer, won't drain. Tub won't spin. Washer door is locked. Took off front panel, opened clean out to drain water (lots of junk in there!). Want to open door to remove clothes to see if tub will spin when empty.

Question: Is there a manual "pull" somewhere that will release the lock?

Thank you all!

    Thanks aborcass, I'm that far now but I still have the F02 error. I just can't seem to get through a whole cycle w/o getting the error, and I've run about 10 cycles with water only. I also did the check, running drain/spin cycle, no spin, 4 times in 5 seconds press rinse hold. One time it got through that whole cycle and ended like a normal cycle. But then I ran a reg cycle w/ water only, and F02 error. Appreciate any help?

    I have the same issue with the F02 error. When running the diagnostic test, the pump will train the tank and keeps running but the machine will not continue to the next step and the F 02 error will come on. I have replaced the pump with no resolution.

After pulling the manual door release by removing the bottom door panel you are able to add 1 cap (1 tbsp) of liquid cooking oil to the water. The cooking oil will greatly reduce the amount of suds so you can complete the cycle.

Pull the front panel off, look for a plastic piece , it has a filter that you need to pull out. turn it to the left pull it out and clean it. This solved the problem for me. had the same issues.

    sounds like you have an issue with the drain pump not moving water through it, possible bad pump, or even a restriction in the drain line itself, ive seen however very rare occasion that somethin liek a coinm is stuck with in the piipe , hose or even ppump assy, where the coin depending on postion is preventing water flowing. also make sure your using an HE detergent. its specifally designed for front loading machines.!!!!!!

Whirlpool code F02


The F02 error code on a Whirlpool washer indicates that the control detects a long drain time. This can be caused by excessive suds in the tub, a restriction or clog in the drain system or by a number of other component failures.
If the Whirlpool washer did not drain, check for excessive suds in the tub. After the suds dissipate, you can normally run a rinse/drain and spin cycle. Causes for excessive suds include not using HE (High Efficiency) detergent or using too much detergent (even if it is HE type).
If the washer will not drain and you do not detect excessive suds, you could have a clog in the drain system. Check the drain hose and the washer drain. You may need to manually unlock the washer door and then pull the large item filter on the pump to check for a clog. To manually unlock the washer door, Always saftey
unplug the washer ,to disconnect electrical power and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the top of the image below. Carefully reach up along the inside of the front panel and pull down on the tab that is under the door lock mechanism until it clicks. This will unlock the washer door. Open the door and manually drain the water out of the washer with a wet/dry shop vacuum. Once the washer is drained, arrange some towels to catch residual water that will drain out and remove the large item filter as shown in the image below. Check for a clog or restriction that could be preventing the washer from draining properly.
If you find no clog or restriction in the drain system, you may have a bad drain pump that needs to be replaced. A problem with the electronic control board could also prevent the washer from draining.
If the washer is draining properly but you are getting this code, you likely have a problem with the water level pressure switch or the control board.

Whirlpool duet flashes F 02


The f02 error code is caused when the unit control thinks there is still water in the tub after it has tried to drain. If the washer is full of soap suds it will also display an f02 error code. You will need to use only name brand HE detergent. If your washer is not draining the water out you will need to clean the pump filter. I have provided the instructions below. Run the washer in a drain and spin to ensure the pump is running. If the washer has no water and no suds the problem will be either the pressure switch or a plugged pressure hose. To check the pressure hose you will need to remove the top and remove the hose from the pressure switch. Ensure the hose is clear by blowing into it. If the hose is clear I recommend replacing the pressure switch.

Whirlpool Duet 9100 will not drain during regular wash cycle. Cleaned drain filter & ran diagnostic and then rinse & drain. Water drained from washer & clothes were damp and I thought the...


I would assume that you are using HE detergent if not the pump could go into a suds lock. You may have a bad drain pump. The other options could be possibly a bad central control unit. (however these are very expensive) or possibly a door lock issue but usually you will get a door lock error.

Our Whirpool duet washer will not spin, gives us the SUDS and F02 message and now the door is locked.....suggestionss?


k now the washer beleives that it is full of water.
pour about 3/4 cup of veg oil in the dispenser. and start the unit.. this will get rid of the suds error.
F02 means long fill.. and the water level has not satisfied the computer for 40 secs. check water connections. making sure they are fully open.
to open the door if it does not unlock, in the dispenser there should be an ODD colored line, five that a tug and the door will pop open

My whirlpool duet washer will rotate to balance


If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed.


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


To solve this:




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.
thanks.
