Error Code F 02, and water won't drain

So I keep having this error code, F 02 come up on the Whirlpool Duet washer.  I've tried just running on the drain/spin cycle, running a full cycle, unplugging and trying all again.  Nada.  There are no clothes in the machine now, but still a pretty substantial amount of water.  I've read that I should check the filter, but am afraid to take it off with all this water, as one person said taking off the filter without draining the water would cause a flood.  So.....what do I do to get all this water out?  I guess I could scoop it out with a cup, but surely there's a better way....right?  Please help, laundry is piling up!

Here's a helpful link you can try that explains the "F02" error and how to troubleshoot. Best of all, it explains how to minimize the mess from a potential flood:

Read through the information thoroughly prior to beginning any repairs. If you do not own a shop vac (wet/dry), you may consider purchasing a small inexpensive one. A size 5 gallon or less is sufficient to drain a front loader. If you do not understand something and require require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Why does my whirlpool frontloader stop in the middle of a cycle and read f 02


Repairing the F02 error code can usually be done without ordering parts. Tools needed to repair your whirlpool 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 it 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.
If you require a new drain pump motor, you can purchase the part from the link below.

Whirlpool duet washer error code f-02


Error F-02 is a slow drain problem. Remove lower front panel. You will see a circular door. Be prepared for a lot of water and junk, maybe keep some old towels ready. Open, clean out, check pump which comes right behind it - see that blades rotate freely; refit carefully. You are done, for the next six months or so, depending on usage.

Whirlpool duet flashes F 02


The f02 error code is caused when the unit control thinks there is still water in the tub after it has tried to drain. If the washer is full of soap suds it will also display an f02 error code. You will need to use only name brand HE detergent. If your washer is not draining the water out you will need to clean the pump filter. I have provided the instructions below. Run the washer in a drain and spin to ensure the pump is running. If the washer has no water and no suds the problem will be either the pressure switch or a plugged pressure hose. To check the pressure hose you will need to remove the top and remove the hose from the pressure switch. Ensure the hose is clear by blowing into it. If the hose is clear I recommend replacing the pressure switch.
