Kitchenaid Washer Error Codes

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.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Immediate Action:

    • 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Reconnect Power:

    • Reconnect the power and plug the unit back in.
    • Resume a test cycle to observe if the F02 error persists.
  5. 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.
