Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Getting F02 error, machine stops part way in & beeps.

It's barely been a year, of course when warranty just runs out. We get a variance of codes but the main one we get constantly now is F02.  Machine stops, beeps & flashes this error.  Before this our clothes stunk badly. I got rid of a 15 yr old top loading machine still working great for this front loading mess. They were a gift from my husband. We thought we were upgrading. We can't afford the cost of repairman. Please help. Thanks.
PS..my husband did all manual said, checked drain hose, etc. any suggestions? Maybe he missed something.

    After doing what manual says & checking drain hose for blockage we still had the problem but after checking a few websites I saw there is a place to check that they do not tell us about in their manual. The Filter.
    The filter is under the washer door. You take off the front bottom panel under the door and you will see this white knob that screws off. Just make sure the washer has drained or you will have a flood. Unbelievably I found socks & money there & we couldn't see how in the world these huge socks got there but they did. Remove any items you find in there, clean out really good & also check the repeller fan for any damage. If it's ok, try washer & see how it goes. If damage to repeller fan you will have to replace, which I read is easy to do if you order part yourself. They should put this very inportant fact in the manual, it almost cost us $$ for a repairman, until I saw a blog on applianceblog.com Good luck!

    By the way our washer works like new now, after cleaning out that front filter. I hope it stays that way for a long time. NO MORE CODES!! Hope my above post helps you F02 code people out there.

Thank you so much for posting your solution of the F02 error code. I was having the same problem and noticed that my clothes smelled like mold and I didn't understand why. Anyway, my husband "cleaned the filter". He found four socks.
Awhile back, I noticed that I was missing a lot of socks. One day I pulled the gray flap in the washer and found around 15 socks! I now check that flap after every wash.

Again, thanks for posting your solution. It was an easy fix and it saved us $$.

We just had repair service out to look at our Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer.  They were dispatched by the Whirlpool's 800# after I called for assistance with trouble shooting.  No mention of cost was made.  $72 later we were told it would cost $600 to replace our computer!!!  Our machine is just 3 years old , and the repairman told us it is about the longest he has seen one last!  Our code is dlF which I assume means, door lock failed.  They did replace the locking mechanism, but it did not help.  They also told my husband the water hose was pushed down too far, and readjusted it.  Good luck.

Warranty is 1 year parts and labor, 2 years parts only and 3 years for control boards. That model does not have a control board.

Showing f02


Error Code F02 = Motor jammed or tachogenerator detached

Check the motor hasn't jammed up somehow, or that the small tacho coil on the end of the motor hasn't dropped off (tip the machine back and it's in between the brushes - it should be held in place with a clip. If it's hanging loose it's the fault)

This fault code basically means the PCB cannot detect any impulses from the tacho coil on the motor, so the main implication is that the motor is just not running. However, because other fault codes cover most of the other motor faults, the PCB thinks the motor may be physically jammed. That is, as far as the PCB is concerned, it is supplying the motor with power, but it can't detect the motor is running. This fault is not caused by worn carbon brushes because on these washing machines, an open circuit on the motor causes the washing machine to do nothing at all. It would not fill, or empty (as well as the motor wouldn't run) although the indicator lights would work. These washing machines do not produce an error code for open circuits in the motor.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer)

Whirlpool washer GHW9100LW F02 code - -what does that mean?


F02 – indicates a Long Drain error (Drain Exceeds 8 Minutes) - Select 'cancel' twice to clear error code.

Note: You may see a "SUD" error code appear first during this failure.

This should change to the F02 error code after a few minutes.
1. Switch off the machine, unplug the machine from the mains power and turn off the water supply to the machine.
2. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
3. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
4. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
5. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
6. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
7. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
8. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
9. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
10. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
11. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

Got code F02 after cleaning all drain system and replacing pump.


"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Kenmore Oasis Elite Top Loading Washer with an F2 error


The F02 error code indicates keypad/user interface failure. Most of the time, this is caused by a problem in the keypad/user interface. It can sometimes be caused by a failed control board.You could have an intermittent problem such as a stuck key or contact. As long as the F02 is not displayed, the washer should work normally. You can continue to use it when the F02 is not displayed. It is still safe to use the washer.
Sometimes this problem is caused by a loose wiring harness connection between the keypad/user interface control board and the machine control board.
The F2 error code on this washer indicates a stuck button on the user interface control board. The procedure for accessing the control boards on this washer is shown in the image below. I recommend unplugging the washerand checking the wire harness connection from the user interface control board to the machine control board. Try unplugging the connections and then plugging them back in a few times. Make sure that they are plugged in correctly and then reassemble and test the washer. If the F2 is still displayed, then the user interface control board will need to be replaced.
