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(Actual drain filter location and procedure below)
• If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump

How to Check your drain pump filter for foreign objects:

Most likely, this issue will be the cause of a clogged drain filter. Use my procedure below to help locate and clean this filter.

First, you will need to unplug your unit and shut off the rear water faucets that feed the unit. Next; Open the small trap door next to the drain hose connection to the back of the washer to gain access to the filter. Now, Push twits and pull out the filter cap that is visible ounce the trap door has been opened. Clear out any debris and wipe the filter and the surrounding area with a mild detergent. If needed, wear gloves and use vinegar or bleach to remove odors, mold and mildew. Rinse the parts completely, if possible. Next; Remove the drain hose and clean it with a mild detergent or warm water. If necessary, again use vinegar or bleach to remove odors and mildew. Completely purge this hose. Once the drain hose has been purged, Reconnect the drain hose and filter. Close the trap door. Reconnect the inlet hoses and plug in the unit and turn it back on for a test run.

Kenmore Elite front load washer (model: 110 42936200) won't spin. It makes a buzzing/humming sound when it should be spinning. Any suggestions?

F2 mean that you have a drainage problem and could be that the pump is clogged. I believe the pump can be accessed from the front of the washer. Also make sure electrical connections are secure. Make sure no hoses are clogged or kinked anywhere.
