Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Duet error code F 02.

The error code states we may have a clogged drain line. I have cleared obviously clogged drain line from washer to drain pipe, cleared clogged black rubber boot attached to bottome of barrel, made sure large filter was clear and same error code comes up.

Do I have to clear the error code somehow?

Thanks in advance..........Ed, Davenport, Iowa

    Cool-took only a couple minutes...mostly trying to find the little TORX screw bit for my powerdrill... Filter clogged, and there was even a small nail which luckily never made it to the impellor! THANKS,that was easy...just a little messy since I omitted the bucket...

    It did not take long to learn that my motor pump had been damaged...the same error code and poor drainage indicated the pump was shot. I placed an order for a new pump online...the hard part is living without for a few days! It was then attached and has been running like new. Maybe your motor pump is shot,also...

    washer is displaying 02 F and won,t complete the cycle

  • Boyart Dec 05, 2008

    I have the same code F 02. I checked/cleaned drain, filter every looks fine. I was also able to see the water drain from the machine. It looks like that the spin cycle won't come on. I put the machine on Drain / Spin and it doesn't spin. I think the F 02 is telling me that there maybe a problem with the spin cycle instead of the drain. Any suggestion?

    The drain pipe is blocked resulting in water remaining in the washer. I unscrewed the filter and drained the water there. But further down the drainpipe, still clogged. How can I access that

Just had this problem. Remove the kick plate in front of machine. The drain pump filter maybe clogged. Turn the white screw to remove filter, but be sure to have towels or a bucket handy. I clean mine out and now is working fine.

Same problem--washer would not drain--F02 code. Tried drain and rinse per trouble shooting guide with no luck. Door would not open. Unplugged power cord and then was able to open door. Removed front cover per earlier response (3 torx-head screws at bottom of front kick plate). The filter is in the bottom center--remove the front screws and the filter can be moved forward to be drained (a 13"x9" baking pan worked great). You can pull the motor and filter forward and unscrew the filter to let the water drain without flooding the floor. Our filter was clean, but the clog was a rubber mass within the flexible element between the filter and the bottom tank of the washer. The rubber had to be crumbled by squeezing the flexible element and using a soft snake in the line. As a note, there is a ball float at the bottom of the tank that should not be confused as a blockage and crushed. The tank was flushed with small buckets of water to remove the rubber particles. This problem was caused by washing an old rubber-backed rug in hot water--don't do this--cold water wash only!!! The rubber came off and formed solid balls of rubber which plugged the drain.

Error code in book is wrong,,try changing the pressure switch

Posted on Dec 06, 2007

  • Priscilla Feb 21, 2013

    Your exactly right. The error code is not fair clogged drain always. If your machine is draining properly then the problem is the pressure switch.

  • Priscilla Feb 21, 2013

    Its not wrong in the book but your right that it is not always the problem. If your machine is draining properly then yes it is the pressure switch.

The solution of taking off the front pannel and draining and cleaning the discharge area to the pump...WORKS!!!
We had a half dozen q-tips, a twist tie and a ton of hair! Be ready for a ton of water draining as you open the discharge cap.
Good luck!

Thanks for the info. Unclogged mine by following Jeezegirl's solution of taking off front panel and unscrewing white plug. I needed a big pot to catch the water. I should have pulled the white plug (screw top and all) out from the washer first, then I would not have had to mop up water afterwards.

Try unplugging it wait a few mins and the power up. Its the only way to reset them. I am assuming that the machine does pump the water out fine. If the drain is still clogged, or the pump impeller jammed, or if the pump is bad it will still not sense that it is draining normally.

Received a F 02 error code which is a draining problem. Checked the hose and it was clear. Upon restart, drum won't spin. Can hear motor engaging. Recommendations?


Sounds like it's not draining the water so the load is too heavy for the drum to spin. Remove the lower panel (3 bolts facing outward on bottom of panel), unscrew the lint filter trap (right side), and clean it out. Also make sure hoses are okay, and that the drain pipe is not clogged.

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.

"F21" 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 displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.


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