Hello & Welcome to FixYa
F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. 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.

You you probably need a pump, but try this first. Remove the pump filter again and put you finger into the hole going to the pump and see if there is anything in it and see if you can turn the pump impeller. If this checks ok, Put filter back in and put washer into drain/spin. It should spin since you have drained the tub. If so replace the pump.
If it still doesn't spin remove the top of the washer and find the pressure switch. It will have a rubber hose going from it down to the bottom rear of the tub. Remove the hose from the switch and make sure you can blow through it. Hook hose back to switch and try drain/spin again. If washer does not spin now, you will need to do some trouble shooting with a volt/ohm meter or have a tech come out.
Post back to let me know what you find out.
