"F02" is a Long Drain error code. 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:

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.

MY WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER BEEPS AND CUTS OFF 2 MINUTES BEFORE CYCLE ENDS DISPLAYING F 02 CODE?


The F 02 error code is a long drain problem. It could be that there is something clogging the drain line or a kink in the line, the drain pump trap is clogged, something lodged in the drain pump or the drain pump not working properly.
Here is some info I found on this site to help me clean out the drain pump trap and to replace the drain pump if cleaning it out doesn't work for you.

Washer does spin out


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. It sounds like your drain pump has failed and is not draining properly. This is probably also the cause of the "SUD" error and the noise you're hearing. If you wish to replace the pump, I recommend replacing the entire unit. Searspartsdirect.com carries the part for about $71.00. Just type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search menu and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading for item #10. If you look under my profile under "Tips and Tricks" there is a posting on how to replace a drain pump on a front loader. If you can't the information you're looking for, or need further assistance, let me know. I hope helps you.
