If this is a Kenmore Elite, Whirlpool Duet, or Maytag Epic series front loading washer, "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 that can commonly occur in conjunction with the "F02" error. This is a result of too much air being detected in the drainage system. In most cases, correcting the drainage problem will corect BOTH error codes.

    I followed you directions to clean out the drain pump reservoir and it worked perfectly! I couldn't believe how much stuff (toys, combs, pencils, money) was in there. You saved me a TON of money - thanks!

During wash cycle it stops and beeps, then f 02 scrolls on screen


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F/02 error means Long Drain. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed. 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.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Restarted printer and will not move off the XEROX screen


It could be a bad main board 671-5316-80 or hard drive 650-4310-02

Some information flashes on the screen...if you see "CPU interupt 12," then suspect the hard drive more.

My whirlpool duet washer will not spin all of the water out after the spin sycle. There is a flashing F2 on the screen.


F/02 = Long Drain

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed. Most likely cause is item 1.
  1. Check Screen Filter Assembly for foreign material lint, socks, coins, nails ect. To access the filter remove the lower front panel. The filter (white is located before the pump. Place a pan under the filter and remove it and clean then reassemble.
  2. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
  4. If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

Wash stops, beeping, flashing F and 02


I'll just take a swing at this one, without model number.............F-02 is typically a Whirlpool error code for " slow drain". If this is a Kenmore or Whirlpool front loader, pull off the bottom panel and check the pump filter, (pump should be right up front, turn counter-clock-wise to remove filter) clear of any debris, check hose from tub to pump as well. NOTE! If there is water in the machine, it will pour out of the pump, first remove the water either with a wet-vac, or just do it very slowly and carefully at the pump, draining the water into a pan.
