Repair & Advice
Was receiving F02 and SUDS error code. The pump had not pumped the water out in a predetermined amount of time (even though it had). The SUDS error would immediately come on even without soap. Figured it must be the sensor giving bad information to the control panel. Changed the pressure switch and that fixed the problem. Has been running over a month with no problems. First, you may want to clean the pump filter out first. The pump filter is accessed by removing the 3 screws on the front lower panel of the washer. You will see a plastic handle front and center when you remove the panel. Twist the handle and pull to remove. Have plenty of towels or wet/dry vac ready as some water will flow out. Remove debris for filter. Replace panel and run washer cycle again to see if problem is resolved. Also check drain hose to make sure it isn't stopped up. If not, it may be the pump or pressure switch. My pump was removing the water in a reasonable amount of time so i figured it was the water level pressure switch. To replace the switch remove the 3 nuts at the top and back of the washer. The top should slide right out by pulling it towards the back of the the washer. the pressure switch is at the top back right corner of the washer, close to where the drain hose comes through the back of the washer. Use the flat head screwdriver or needle nose pliers to push in the plastic tab so as to disengage the plastic catch. Replace with new part. Replace panel cover.
