How do you check the drain pump on a Kenmore elite HE3 washer that is flashing an F02 code?

My HE3 washer won't spin or drain the water out and it displays an F02 code.

If the washer will not drain then it won't try to spin.

The image below contains the instructions to access and check the drain pump. The first thing to try is to check the pump for obstructions. You can remove the filter and clean it out.

The pump can be blocked or it may be bad. Remove the filter and check for debris preventing the pump from working. Use a small shallow pan or heavy towel to catch the water that leaks when the filter is removed.

If the filter is clean then the pump is most likely the cause of the not draining problem. If you have a volt/ohm meter you can ohm the pump out or check voltage to the drain pump. Use caution checking voltage to the pump. The wires must be left on the pump to check voltage.

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
