Question and Answers


washer not draining out. MFW9700SB0 Maytag Residential washer


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "F02" fault will display if the drain time exceeds eight minutes.  After 4 minutes the "Sud" error will be displayed and 4 later, the "F02" error code will display.

The first thing I would do is check and clean out the drain pump filter. If the drain pump is not running, it could be jammed or faulty. If the drain pump is not running or humming, then a voltage meter will be needed in order to see if the control board is supplying the 120 voltage supply.

I added an image below showing how to access the drain pump. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the front lower access panel.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Maytag washer knocking on spin cycle



Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am sorry you are having problems with your washer.

Most likely, the spin bearing for the inner basket is bad. You can try opening the door with everything turned off and rotating the drum by hand. Turn it both directions and listen for the noise you have been hearing. Feel for roughness when you are turning the basket. Try to move the inner basket side to side and up and down, you should not be able to move the basket either way. There should be no roughness felt when rotating the inner basket.

Sometimes a foreign object like a coin will get caught between the basket and the outer tub. This can make loud and unusual noises.

Another possibility is a pump bearing going out or something caught in the pump.

I highly recommend having a trained service technician evaluate this problem. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
