Tips for a great answer:
It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution.As you have noticed that the drain pump is clogged this could have produced the noise. Now remove the drain pump, clean the drain pump, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. If the pump does not work even with power then it must be replaced.

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.
