"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

I have a Kenmore HE3t washer than continues to stop during the cycle and flash the F2 error code even after cleaning out lines, hoses, trap, boot and replacing the drain pump.


It is possible that the brushes on the motor that spins the drum are worn down. The drum will start and stop when this happens. Check the brushes.

Kenmore elite h3 front load washer is not working error code f2 flashes


Hello,

The F2 error code mean that the washer didn't drain the water within the normal time it takes to drain,usually the reson the washer hasn't drained properly is because the filter screen on the drain pump is clogged with debris. this tip i have written will show ya how to clean the filter on the pump.

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.

GETTING A F2 CODE AND THE MACHINE JUST BEEPS


F2:---Drain pump error. Clean out the drain pump catchment.

- Pull the suction boot off the drain pump, clean out any gookus.

- Blow through the drain hose starting from the connection at the pump.

- If all else checks out, replace the pump.
---------------- remove the bottom front panel and there is a white plastic catch basin with a removable-by-hand, large facing forward lid. Remove it

Kenmore washer he3t F2


If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and F02 is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• 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
