SOURCE: F02 what does it mean
I have had this issue more than once. It was an easy fix for me (maybe a 20 minute job and best of all no money). For my F 02 error it was my 4 year olds socks that some how got down the drain line and stuck in the clean out. Here is what you do. There are 3 screws bottom of the front access plate. Remove these and the lower access plate will pop right off. Right in front you will see the pump and the drain line. It has a clean out right there. Unscrew the cap (be ready for alot of water to rush out, so have alot of towels ready). Once the water is drained remove the cap. The cap has a trap so that larger items do not get to the pump. This is where I find the socks stuck. Clean it out, tighten the cap back into place, put the access panel back on, and hit run. Has worked for me at leaste 3 times. Those pesky kid socks every time.

SOURCE: F02 problem
This is actually for the Kenmore Elite, but it should help.
You have to check your filter to remove blockage. Lift the machine at front to have access to 3 torx screws under the front panel. Slide downwards out. Have a wet vac ready. You will see the pump filter right in front. Gently unscrew, water will begin to drip, use the wet vac. Remove the cap & pull the filter out to remove all debris & lint, make sure there is nothing in the impeller. Refit carefully.
Your dealer wants to make more $$ so he won't write these details in the user's manual.

"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, there is something lodged in the drain pump or inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:
Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris and small articles of clothing can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.
NOTE: The "SUD" error code can often occur in conjunction with the "F02" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error should go away.
If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

SOURCE: a code F02 appears on
"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:
1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.
If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Tips for a great answer:
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.
