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
Rylee

F 02 I reset it to drain and spin for the first load. already took the bottom panel off and cleaned out the white container. still not working for the second load, still flashing F02.


f02 means long drain. something is stopping it from draining. takes the pump out and look in at the impeller, something could be caught in it

Kenmore Elite HE3t 11042922200 Front Loading. F02 drain Problem


We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

Take the front panel off (it's simply three hex screws along the bottom and a nudge upwards that do the trick), unscrew the cap to the pump filter, have a bucket handy for the torrent of water behind it.

This will expose the Pump Inlet Strainer.

Front-load washers have this design flaw. You'll be surprised what you'll find in there - panties, missing socks, nylons, hairballs, coins, legos, etc.

Kenmore Elite F02 code even after changing to a new pump.


remove compartment cover under the front load door. There is a drain there that will catch large items left in your clothes, ie pens paper etc

F02 problem


I can't think of what that error is off the top of my head and the owners manual would not tell you what that code means. Take off the bottom panel of the washer (3 screws underneath usually 1/4" or #20 torx) and the tech sheet is inside against the right sied or on the back of the panel. It will tell you what that means and some tips on what to look for. If you have any questions let me know.
