Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I have a whirlpool duet washer that is the front load type. Started getting the F02 code indicating failure to pump out water. I've cleaned the system completely. The pump will work sometimes, but won't other times. It seems that an hour or so of waiting since the last failure, it will pump out and work enough to finish one load. Could this be the pump, or so I have some other problem?
It sounds like the pump motor or the impeller may be damaged. The "F02" error code is usually attributed to a pump failure or clog somewhere in the drain system. If you have made sure that the drain lines and pump reservoir are clean, and the pump still does not run properly, I would replace it. The first link explains the "F02" error and how to check the pump.
This second link explains how to replace the drain pump:
A replacement pump can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the pump can be found under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading as item number 10 (part #8181684). This is a simple repair. Just read through the instructions thoroughly before starting any repairs. If you need further assistance, please let me know. If you do not wish to purchase parts on line, use the part number provided and take to your nearest appliance parts retailer. I hope this is helpful to you.

How to fix a Whirlpool Duet & Duet sport error code F02. Repairing your F02 error code can usually be done without ordering parts. Tools needed to repair your Duet F02 error code are towels and a quarter inch socket.
Tip the washer back at a 45 degree angle. On the bottom panel there are three or four screws, with the screws removed the panel will slide down and off. With the lower access panel now removed you will have access to the washers drain pump clean out.
With the water already bailed from the washer you can twist the filter head counter-clockwise to remove. Twisting the filter head counter-clockwise will loosen filter so it can be pulled out. With the filter out, clean and install back into washer.
Run a quick cycle to ensure the washer is back up and running and the F02 error has disappeared. If the error comes back it may require you to clean the drain pump filter again.
