Kitchenaid Washer Error Code F02
If your KitchenAid washer displays the F02 error code, it indicates a prolonged drain time exceeding 8 minutes. In some cases, you may first see a “SUD” (suds) error code, which can transition to the F02 error after a few minutes. This points to issues in the drainage system that require attention for proper washer functionality.
- Select ‘cancel’ twice to clear the error code and pause the cycle.
- If a “SUD” error appears initially, don’t be alarmed, as this is a normal response to excessive suds.
Inspect Drain Hoses:
- Check the drain hoses for proper connection and potential kinks or obstructions.
- Ensure the hoses are not twisted or bent, allowing for smooth water flow.
Power Cycle and Disconnect:
- Unplug the washer and disconnect the power source for safety.
- Examine the electrical connections at the pump for any loose or damaged wires.
- Verify that the pump is operational and clear of any debris or blockages.
- Reconnect the power and plug the unit back in.
- Resume a test cycle to observe if the F02 error persists.
Replace the Pump (If Necessary):
- If the issue remains unresolved, it may indicate a faulty drain pump.
- Consider replacing the pump after confirming that all other components are in working order.
By following these troubleshooting steps, you can address the KitchenAid Washer Error Code F02 associated with a long drain time, ensuring the efficient operation of your appliance.Schedule Appointment
