Kenmore Elite He3 washer will wash but won't drain & spin
« on: August 30, 2009, 06:09:22 PM »

So in the middle of washing sheets today our washer stops.  It gives us the code F02, which we determined is a draining issue.  We took the drain hose out of the wall and drained the water into a bucket and eventually it started back up and we were able to drain & spin the current load.  We also checked the pipe to make sure that water drained out of there as well. We started the next load and everything went fine until the drain and spin cycle, it gave us the same code again!  Obvioulsy something isn't working right.  Is it the pump?

Model 110.4292

4292400  sorry.

We did take the front cover off and pulled out the filter.  Not alot in there, but one load so far has gone through the entire cycle.  When I heard the normal beep for the end of the cycle I was very happy.

4292400  sorry...

Is the Pump running ?
Does it have 120v ?

110.4292400x

If it's
110.42924000
110.42924001
110.42924002

then these are your Tech Sheets

similar to Whirlpool GHW9100

Thanks for your help...Where I'm confused is the pump seems to work fine for the rest of the cycle it's just at the final drain and spin,could the pump possibly be getting to hot at the end of the cycle

Thanks for the help.  We have since replaced the pump and the washer is working just fine!   O0
