I have a Whirlpool Duet washer Model number GHW9100LW1 that has decided to quit draining completely. An F2 error comes up. When I go to a drain only setting the drain pump sounds like it is laboring. I checked the trap area and found a quarter and a small button, but nothing big. If I leave it off for a few hours then it seems to work OK, but then it happens again on the next load. Size of the load from small to large doesn't seem to matter. Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

I found the drain pump shaft was loose, so I replaced the drain pump with a new one. It worked fine for about three loads...now I get a F H error about half way through a wash cycle. If I start over over or cancel this error and start from there, it will finish without a problem.  Any suggestions..what is causing this F H error.:(

I have the same machine and am having the same problem. I have yet to change anything, but like you said, it quits with an F2 code and then if I leave it a day and restart it, the load completes and might do another before the same thing happens. If you found the fault in yours please share!  Thanks.

This problem is usually caused by what we professional appliantologists call, "panties in the drain pump."  'Course, that's just generic talk for something ain't opos'd to be there.  Your hit list:

- Clean out the drain pump catchment.

-  Pull the suction boot off the drain pump, clean out any gookus.

-  Blow through the drain hose starting from the connection at the pump.

-  If all else checks out, replace the pump.

Panties was a good guess. Infants sock was the correct response (and a safety pin, 23 cents, + a few onces of smelly crude) 8 pts for you Samarai. It was located in the drain pump catch area. Thank you for your response.

For others with issue: I removed the bottom front panel and there was a white plastic catch basin with a removable-by-hand, large facing forward lid (peanut butter container sized) Remove it and Voila.  Very easy fix-it job. (Don't tell the wife that, I scored big points when she came home and it was fixed)

The Duet hides the pump/filter access behind the lower panel. Most LG, Miele and ASKO washers have it right up front for easy access. I guess keeping such a base element out of view helps sales.

Baby socks make me a tidy sum. They can go places big socks can only dream about. Get yourself a lingerie bag for them and other small items you wish to wash if you don't feel like repeating this episode.

I replaced the pump assy. and still getting the code. I have 2 machines, the only difference is the drain pipe is 4" higher.  the pump just labors for ever but never fully drains.

the machine is sitting unused for like 2 months, so just now looking around I found a link to a diagnostic proc, but it will not work.  it says to select DRAIN ? NO SPIN  , also select the second button and set it to NO SPIN   then press the button  BELOW ? the OPTIONS  and press it 4 times, it should display C00  but the time never changes.

anyways just now it drained fully, guess I will run some bleach and test it out to see what gives.
