If you have cleaned the drain pump and checked ALL the drain lines (this includes the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump), then you may have to replace the pump.
Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and cannot pump at the correct volume to complete the drain cycle, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.
The following link explains how to replace the drain pump (if required):
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I hjave listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need.
If you are having problems with unlocking the washer, there is a manual release you can use to get the door open: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576511-door_jam_on_kenmore_elite_and_whirlpool_ The problem may just be a momentary glitch in programming related to the "F02" error code you are receiving. If there are any error codes present, the washer will not complete a cycle and will shut down. I would recommend double checking the drainage system one more time to ensure there's nothing caught in the pump impeller or any of the drain lines (you may have overlooked something), followed by replacement of the pump if the problem continues. This will hopefully cure any others issues you may be experiencing with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: What do you use to
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
To remove the access panel you will need to remove three #20 torx head screws. To do so you will need a #20 torx bit or #20 torx screwdriver.
Good Luck and thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided and a short testimony is appreciated.

Tips for a great answer:
This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged
drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and
remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower
front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs,
you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely, if the issue returns then it is time for a new pump. Hope this
helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
You are right, E13 is a long drain
time error and to solve this issue the pump filter assembly should be cleaned
completely. There is a tiny hole you can stick a
pin through in the access panel on the lower front right corner. Push a pin through
the whole and turn the access panel counter clockwise and it will remove so
that you can unscrew the plastic drain cap behind it. Remove the plastic drain
cap and clear the drain behind it. After doing all these things if the issue returns then it
means the drain pump is faulty and should be replaced. Hope this
helps...please post back for further assistance.
