Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer
I just wanted to confirm stopgo's solution. A few notes/elaborations:
Funny that the instructions for checking the drain filter cannot be accessed until you open the bottom panel to check the drain filter!

We had this problem after our baby's socks started going missing in the wash cycle. We found them in two places: 1. Underneath the rubber gasket of the front-loading drum, and, 2. In the drain line, but not in the hose that comes out of the back of the machine. The manual and website make no mention of the three torx screws on the front, lower panel that can be removed, exposing a drain that can then be unscrewed (be prepared for A LOT of water to come out of here if you haven't been able to get it to drain). Inside here we found the culprit baby socks, removed them, ran a fan on the exposed electronics over night to dry them out, and put it back together. Problem solved. It's unbelievable that this information is not in the manual but had to be googled from sites like this. Hope this helps someone else and prevents an expensive service call. Maytag, you ****!

First time, mine had about 50 cents in pennies and dimes in there. Closed it up. Thought it was working fine. One week later... same problem. Opened it up again... nothing. Finally felt the outsride of the black rubber hose right behind the drain, and I could feel there was something big in there. I massaged it to where I could see it then reached in with long needle nose pliers. It was a full grown man's sport sock on the rubber hose just behind the drain. For gosh sake... how did that manage to go down the drain???

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
