Whirlpool duet code 02 problem

Recently I have been getting a 02 error code.  We replaced the drain tube, but that did not help.  I read some of the other responses you gave and they seemed very helpful.  Any help explaining the 02 error code and fix would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
B. Miliz

Checking and replacing the drain tube, in your case, may not be enough. I would strongly recommend checking and cleaning the drain pump. If a thorough cleaning of the drain pump and verification that all the drain lines still does not solve your problem, you probably need to replace the drain pump. Searspartsdirect.com carries a replacement pump for about $70. Just type in your model number and locate item number 10 under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading. If you do need to replace the pump, use this next link for step-by-step instructions:

Some of the steps are repetitive, but I hope its helpful to you. Let me know if you require further assistance. Hopefully, you can solve your problem without the need of replacing anything.

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 gives me an error code of F 02


"F02" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that there's an obstruction in the drainage system somewhere. Most commonly, the drain pump reservoir needs to be checked and cleaned. The access screws are on the lower toe panel directly below the door in the FRONT of the washer. They are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may need to prop up the two front feet of the washer to access them (a 2x4 works well for this). The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

Replacements can be purchased online at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

MY WHIRLPOOL DUET FRONTLOAD WASHER BEEPS AND CUTS OFF 2 MINUTES BEFORE CYCLE ENDS DISPLAYING F 02 CODE?


The F 02 error code is a long drain problem. It could be that there is something clogging the drain line or a kink in the line, the drain pump trap is clogged, something lodged in the drain pump or the drain pump not working properly.
Here is some info I found on this site to help me clean out the drain pump trap and to replace the drain pump if cleaning it out doesn't work for you.

Error Code F 02, and water won't drain


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:

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

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.
