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

Whirlpool front loader duet hd washer gets stuck in the wash cycle with the error code of F02. What is F02 mean?


Whirlpool Duet front-load washer F02 usually means it is taking over 8 minutes for the washer to sense that the rinse or wash water has drained, which either means that the drain/filter is clogged or the pressure switch/tube is clogged (causing both the washer to over-fill with water and not sensing that water has drained).

To clear out the drain/filter, tilt the washer backwards a little for easier to the kick-plate and support the front bottom with a wood block or similar, remove the front kick-plate's (3) retaining screws and swing the kick-plate up out of the way. The filter drain is behind the white knob in the center, be prepared with something to catch any remaining water and lots of towels to soak up any spills, and turn the knob counter-clockwise to remove the filter.

How can fix f 02


whirlpool duet f02 codeHow to fix fo2 fault code on a whirlpool duet front load washing machine, The whirlpool duet is one of the machines that have a main computer control that operate and monitor the functions of the machine,
This control is usually mounted behind the front panel,sometimes at the back or to the side, it also has a speed control board that is mounted on the bottom usually at the right side.
Whenever a problem accur there is a fault code displayed on the machine, there is a technician sheet with the fault codes on the machine, the technician can use this guide to go directly to the problem,
This f02 code mean there is a problem with the drain, there is a drain filter that sometimes get clogged with lint and other things,
Removing the kick plate and removing the drain access on the pump will reveal the drain filter, use a small bucket, and towels to catch the water that will be in the pump

F02 error and not draining correctly (pool of water left at the bottom of the washer after cycle has completed). This is on a whirlpool duet front loading washer.


Hi
Error F02 appears after 8mins of SUDs error. Error F02 means Long drain, means washer is taking longer time than normal to drain. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. NOTE: After 4 minutes the SUD error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
• 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.
There are 3 small 9/32 hex head screws that hold the front panel on. Unscrew the 3 hex head screws (9/32 socket or nut driver size), now remove the front kick panel. Unscrew the white drain cap -WARNING-- lots of water will drain out when you loosen the white cap. Once all the water is out, remove and take out the filter trap.
Hope this helps... Please post back for more information

What does it mean during the wash cycle when it stops during the cycle and says F 02? Thanks!


F02 error means if the drain time has exceeded more than 8 minutes. After four minutes suds will be displayed on the screen and again after 4 minutes the F02 error code appears.


Check the drain line for any clogs or blocks which hinder the draining procedure..Use of more detergent can even cause this condition..Be sure you are using only 2 tablespoons of HE soap and not more than that.

Check your drain filter also and replace them if needed. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer. The drain/filter/pump is right in front

The F02 Code usually means the washer machine can't drain the water. Usually caused by a failure of the drain pump or a clog in the drain hose.
