Problem I'm getting a 02 F alarm

Posted by on

  • creekwoodsev Dec 10, 2008

    I cleaned the drain pump trap (among many things found part of a rusty paper clip) and the machine ran twice ok, then gave me the f 02 again. How do I check inside the pump for little items perhaps like the other piece of the paper clip or something?

FAULT F-02 FLASHING


if the fault is F-02 then just clean the white plug out. There will be pretty much dirt there and a lot of water will come out. So just get the towels ready.

Get code 02 F - what does that mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F/02 error means Long Drain. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F/02" is flashed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
  • 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.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Kepp getting a code f 02 then washer wont do


Open the bottom panel (3 screws on bottom) then you should see a drain clean-out. Unscrew that, there is probably something stuck in there. Have a pan ready to catch the water when you un-screw it. Good luck

F 02 Error Message


Hi!

If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and “F/02” 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 F/02 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 still the problem persists then you need to replace the pump.

Turn off ALARM - Whirlpool washer


This sounds like the imbalanced load alarm. This can occur with large heavy loads like blankets, bedding, lots of diapers (cloth), jeans etc. The best solution is to wash lighter loads and not overload the machine. If overloading continues, the machine could be damaged.
