Why is my Whirlpool front loading washer stopping and displaying "F02"?

Have a Whirlpool Washer, Model GHW9100LW1, which stops in mid-cycle when its supposed to drain, error code F02. Cleaned hoses and pump filter. Is the pump bad? The problem started with water remaining in the tub after the wash cycle was completed. If cycle was then changed to drain/spin cycle, an error code of F02 displayed (drain problem). If washer was allowed to "rest" for awhile, and drain/spin repeated, then water would drain. It then progressed to the washing machine shutting down when it hit the drain cycle with the same F02 code. Again, if washing machine is allowed to "rest" and reset to drain/cycle, it will complete the cycle and drain the water from the tub. We have removed and cleaned the hoses, removed and cleaned the filter on the pump. Have also run the diagnostics in the manual and it runs through the diagnostics with no problems. However, the problem persists. Does the pump need to be replaced or is something shorting out, causing a hot spot which makes the washer shut down?
