The errrors are generally related to one another. The "F02" error is a slow drain problem. The "SUD" gets generated because it senses air in your drain pump (due to a possible blockage). More than likely you have an obstruction in your drain pump and you will need to clean it out. This is probably the reason for the pump sounding strange too. The following link explains how:
Follow the link provided and this should be a an easy process for you. Keep in mind, however, that if there has been something obstructing your drain pump for any significant length of time, you may have damaged to pump. It doesn't take much to cause irrrepairable damage (I know, its a crappy design). If you clean out the drain pump reservoir, and the error(s) reappear, you will have to replace the drain pump.
If you require a replacment pump, you can purchase a new one on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the pump can be located under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading as item number 10 (part #8181684). For instructions on how to replace the pump, follow this link:
Hopefully, it won't come to the point of replacing the pump, but you have the information if you need to. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

A bad pump would not affect a washer's ability to spin. It would only affect the drain function. If the washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain, this is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:
If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

MAKE SURE THE CONNECTION ON THE TOP PANEL FOR THE LID SWITCH IS GOOD. ON OCCASION WHEN THE TOP PANEL IS SLID BACK IT CAN BEND THE BRACKET THAT HOLDS THE FEMALE END ON THE CONNECTION. HOPE THIS HELPS
