"F02" is a Long Drain error. This is usually an indication of an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system, or a failed drain pump. In most cases, the drain pump reservoir just needs to be cleaned out. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

If you check the drain pump reservoir and the problem still persists, you may have a pump with a damaged motor/impeller, or something lodged in one of the drain lines. In particular, the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump.

I recommend you remove the inlet hose, as well, and inspect for clogs. In is common for small garments to become lodged in this area and restrict water flow to the drain pump. Check the output drain line for obstructions as well.

It does not take much to damage these small drain pumps. The error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes. So...if the impeller or motor become damaged, and the pump does not pull water at the correct volume, you may still experience the drain error. In this case, you will have to replace the pump in order to get the error to clear. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

Replacements parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.


NOTE: For a full explanation of all the error codes, each one of these appliances come with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front fett of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.

Read through the information provided and let me know if you have any further questions. I hope you find this information helpful.


NOTE: "SUD" is a suds error detect which can occur in conjunction with the "F02" error as a result of too much air being detected in the drainage system. In most cases, correcting the drainage problem will corect BOTH error codes.

Getting a H then a F error when the washer is washing a load.... I ended up turning it off. I've also received a F 02 error and a SUD error.


Hello, the H and F error means no water is detected entering the machine or the pressure switch trip is not detected. If the control has turn the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valve will be turn off and the error code will be display.
So try the following steps
1. Check drain pump operation
2. Check the pressure switch hose to see if it's in good condition and properly connected to tub and pressure switch
3. Check is it is not a siphon problem
4. Check wire harness connections to: inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump,flow meter, and central control unit(CCU)
5. Check all hoses for possible leaks
6. Check pressure switch operations
7. Check flow meter operation
8. Check CCU operation

F-02 ERROR: Means "Long Drain" that is if the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valve are turn off and F-02 is flashed. Check the following
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged kinked.
2. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects
3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
And for the SUD error means after 4 minutes of the draining process the "sud"error will be display and 4 minutes later the F-02 will be displayed. So apply the solution for the F-02 to these.
Thanks

My washer will not go through a complete cycle. It flashes F2 and will sit on SUD for ever as well as run on the last 1 minute for an hour. Help


If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are turned off and “F/02” is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display. NOTE: After four minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then four minutes later the “F/02” error code will be displayed. Si la durée de l’opération de vidange est de plus de huit minutes, le système commande la fermeture des électrovannes et l’affichage du code “F/02” clignote. Appuyer deux fois sur la touche PAUSE/CANCEL pour commander l’effacement. NOTE : Après quatre minutes le code d’erreur “Sud” sera affiché; quatre minutes plus tard le code “F/02” sera affiché. Possible Causes / Procedure 1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. 2. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. 4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects. 5. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7. 7. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 8. Replace the pump.

I keep getting sud and F 02 in the display


The first thing you should check would be the type of soap you are using, in any front load washer you should always use HE (High Efficiency) and also a smaller amount than what you would normally use on a top load washer and this is due to the amount of water used also if you are looking for an owners manual you can download one by entering your make and model number in on this page. http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/
