Fail Part 2: Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine – F02 Error


Whirlpool Duet - Error F02

I have previously posted my frusteration with the poor quality of the Whirlpool Duet washing machine. The joys of having a CPU in ever single device possible. After spending $180 on a new CPU during my last repair, I expected to have a worry free, clothes washing life. This week, my wife opens the front load washing machine only to discover that it was still filled with water.. After cleaning up the mess, we noticed a new error message. Error F02

After a quick “Topeka Search” aka Google search, I found that this drain problem could be fixed by removing the front panel of the washing machine and cleaning out a small container found behind the panel. Imagine my surprise to find a sock, some change and a hand full of Airsoft BB’s in this container. It was a pretty easy fix but I’m not sure why it was designed to allow items as big as a quarter to be washed down the drain and into this container.

I ask myself again, why didnt’ I just stick with an old school washer and dryer? Those things run forever and are super low maintenance.

For those with a Whirlpool Duet, keep this post hand for the time with you get the thrill of an F02 error. 😉
