    I have a Whirlpool Duet Model GHW9100LW1. It is giving me an F 02 code at the beginning of the rinse cycle. The clothes in it have not rinsed and when I press CANCEL it tries in vain to drain the water in the washer and it makes an unusual grinding sound when doing so. The hose is not clogged or kinked. Tried unplugging unit and replugging it into outlet but no success--same code.
    Please help. Service call alone is $75 just to walk in the door and give an estimate.

    Thank goodness for the internet. same problem here, but with the kenmore front load equivalents. took me all but 10 minutes to remove 3 torq screws then unscrew the pump filter.

    note: it's going to be NASTY smelling. have towels and lysol ready!

We had this problem after our baby's socks started going missing in the wash cycle. We found them in two places: 1. Underneath the rubber gasket of the front-loading drum, and, 2. In the drain line, but not in the hose that comes out of the back of the machine. The manual and website make no mention of the three torx screws on the front, lower panel that can be removed, exposing a drain that can then be unscrewed (be prepared for A LOT of water to come out of here if you haven't been able to get it to drain). Inside here we found the culprit baby socks, removed them, ran a fan on the exposed electronics over night to dry them out, and put it back together. Problem solved. It's unbelievable that this information is not in the manual but had to be googled from sites like this. Hope this helps someone else and prevents an expensive service call. Maytag, you s u c k!

Amazing. The internet worked again! Using the info above I fixed my washing machine. I had an F03 code error and the washing machine would not drain. I also heard a weird sound (pump running but not draining).
Here is what I did:
I took off the bottom panel (as suggested) and you can see and access all the washing machine parts. I emptied the washing machine of all standing water. Unhooked the electrical wire to the pump unscrewed the pump so I could better access the hoses Keep Rags ready for the next step Loosened the clip on the hose from the cylinder to the pump (not the one from the pump to the wall drain) LOTS OF WATER - so make sure you have rags and a try to prevent a big mess There I found the blockage (in my case it was a shredded plastic bath mat). Cleaned out all the debris (found 6 quarters!) Re-attached the hose (this was the only real hard part because the clip is hard to hold while fitting the tube over the pump inlet) And tested the system for leaks using the silk and drain cycles
Thanks to all the posters here for making this possible.

Thanks for the tips. We have a Kenmore HE3t front loader that had a drain problem and showed an F02 error. It was real easy: take off the bottom panel and open the drain pipe. a lot of water came out. some cloth was clogging the pipe. removed it and reassembled everything. Works like there never was a problem. Thanks to Kenmore for making the drain pipe easy to open and to the FixYa community for telling me about it.

SOURCE: error code F02 on whirlpool

Pop off the front cover (3 Torx screws on the bottom lip) After removing the cover you will see a white plastic unit with a screw on cover on the front. Unscrew the cover (no tools needed). Pull the cover off then remove the strainer. It will have gray gook on it plus God knows what else. Clean the strainer in the sink replace screw the cover back on and your in business.

What is code message F02?


Repairing the F02 error code can usually be done without ordering parts. Tools needed to repair your whirlpool Duet F02 error code are towels and a quarter inch socket.
Tip the washer back at a 45 degree angle. On the bottom panel there are three or four screws, with the screws removed the panel will slide down and off. With the lower access panel now removed you will have access to the washers drain pump clean out.
With the water already bailed from the washer you can twist the filter head counter-clockwise to remove. Twisting the filter head counter-clockwise will loosen filter so it can be pulled out.
With the filter out clean and install it back into washer.
Run a quick cycle to ensure the washer is back up and running and the F02 error has disappeared. If the error comes back, it may require you to clean the drain pump filter again.
If you require a new drain pump motor, you can purchase the part from the link below.

Whirlpool front loader duet hd washer gets stuck in the wash cycle with the error code of F02. What is F02 mean?


Whirlpool Duet front-load washer F02 usually means it is taking over 8 minutes for the washer to sense that the rinse or wash water has drained, which either means that the drain/filter is clogged or the pressure switch/tube is clogged (causing both the washer to over-fill with water and not sensing that water has drained).

To clear out the drain/filter, tilt the washer backwards a little for easier to the kick-plate and support the front bottom with a wood block or similar, remove the front kick-plate's (3) retaining screws and swing the kick-plate up out of the way. The filter drain is behind the white knob in the center, be prepared with something to catch any remaining water and lots of towels to soak up any spills, and turn the knob counter-clockwise to remove the filter.

Whirlpool Duet Mdl GHW9150PWO Washer stops


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
