F2 and sud on frontload washer

I keep getting the code f2 and sud and then f2 again. It stated in the manual to push the pause button twice and I did this. It turns off the washer but it will not let the water drain out of the bottom of the washer. I have had to manually take every article of clothing out and ring them out. I am exhausted from doing this. Please tell me what to do.

    Thank you! We will try this tomorrow first thing!

    This actually worked for us too. Pull off the bottom panel and you will see a white 3-4 inch drain you can twist the top off of. put a towel underneath to catch the excess water and unscrew it. i found a sock and padding from a bathing suite top clogging my drain outlet. Now my maching works well! just make sure you put the bottom panel on before you attempt to run the machine again. It will not run at all until you do!

Ok id say something is jamming the drain screen remove the lower panel after drain the washer there are two ways to deal with this as there will sill be water in the tub of the washer you can get a hose clamp from the auto parts store for radiators hoses and clamp the tub to pump hose before removing the white dial of the front of the pump or get a shop vac and pull the water out through the drain hose in the standpipe and be sure you use he or low suds detergent if your not already

The washer is giving a code of "F2" & not draining properly.. any idea?


This code indicates a pump issue. First, remove and clean the filter. Then you need to check out the pump.

Whirlpool F2 = Long Drain error code.
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 "F2 error code" will be displayed.

Potential Causes:
(1) Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
(2) Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
(3) Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.

F2 error code on my Kenmore Elite HE3 washer


Depending on how fritzed your drain pump is this may or may not work. I've been using HE detergent because it is supposed to cause fewer suds. However, apparently is causing more suds than needed. I need to use only a couple tablespoons? If your clothes are not dirty enough for the soap to grab onto then extra suds are the result. The repair guy said we had an excessive amount of suds in the system and this affects the sensor and causes the drain pump to run and run and run until it shuts off from overheating. This is why we get the F2 and/or suds error code. He said once a month run the machine on the hottest water cycle with a cup of bleach (no clothes). This will clear out any suds build-up and is cheaper than Afresh which works, too, (but smells cleaner than bleach). After sitting for a day our pump started working again (yay!) It also stopped making the horrible loud sound. So glad I do not have to replace the pump!! yet...(knock on wood!).

Flashing F2


“F02” (Drain Problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked?
Is the drain hose frozen?
Is the drain hose clogged?
Is the drain hose more than 96" (2.4 m) above the floor?

After running this check list, plug back up and try a complete cycle using cold water and no detergent. Sudding can mimic a drainage issue as well. make sure you are using the correct HE detergent to prevent over sudding.
