Duet washer has an "F" code, and stopped in mid-cycle. How do I restart? What does the F mean?

    It's an F02, which is a drain problem according to the manual. I checked the hose & no kinks, but my washer/dryer combo is stacked and in a closet so it's really hard to disassemble the hose and check if it's clogged. I got the machine to run again by running a "drain and spin" cycle. What else can I do?

    "f" codes are diaganostic codes to tell you where the problem is. What is the number or letters that appear after the "f" code? What is the model of your washer?

I'm so sorry, this didn't update for some reason that you had replied. F-02 is a drain error. Remove the 3-4 1/4" screws from the lower front panel. You will find them all of the way at the bottom of the panel. Once the panel is removed, in the front bottom, center, you will find a white platic container with 2 hoses in the back. This is your pump. There is a "line" running across it. This handle can be rotated counter-clockwise. CAUTION: there is always water left in here. You will need a wet vac or several towels. Once you have completely unscrewed the handle, slide it out. You should find multiple forign objects stuck in this trap, keeping the washer from draining properly. Now re-assemble in reverse. You should be good to go. If this doesn't take care of it, drop me a line back directly (you can click on my user profile) or please send back a information grade.

The ND error code on a digital Neptune front load washer. The ND code means 'No Drain' and it is probably just something caught in the pump. Sometimes this is a early sign of the pump going out or a control board issue.

FH means there is no water getting in the washer. Make sure both fill valves are working by selecting first hot then cold if no cold. If one or the other is not working then replace fill valve( or clean if plugged)

F2 My washer freezes during mid cycle


"F02" is a Long Drain error code, which usually means you have an obstruction in the drain pump, drain lines, or the drain pump has failed. If the drain pump will not function, the washer will not complete, or restart a cycle. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r615268-f02_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Sometimes you may also get a "SUD" error in conjunction with this error due to the detection of air in the drain pump (lack of water flow). If cleaning the drain pump reservoir, and checking all the drain hoses does not correct the problem, you may have a failed drain pump.

Replacement pumps can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, repairclinic.com or pcappliancerepair.com. All these sites offer competitive pricing so shop all of them for the best price.

If you have any questions about this repair please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool Duet Front loader mdl WFW8300SW00 will not start


I had a variety of error codes show up on my duet, and I'm not sure but I seem to recall a 31, but the most constant was 02. I took off the front cover, pulled the white plug out from the unit, put a bucket under it, unscrewed it and drained it. It may be the MCU is having problems because the washer got plugged up.

Duet Sport stopped in mid cycle


Read the Manuel and see if they offer an over ride, first.
Since you already tried rebooting the machine, I won't suggest that!
If no go you will need service at this time!

Whirlpool GHW9150P front loader washer keeps stopping mid cycle witht he F06 code. I can get through an entire cycle if there are only two or three items in the washer. My thought is it needs a new motor drive. would you agree?

Washer stopped


The computer needs to reset. Try unplugging the machine. Plug it back in and then the system should be able to be restarted.
