I don't think PROC LOESS generates diagnostic plots. Anyway,
for detecting non linearities, you can try other approachs like
splines or wavelets. Maybe one of them can handle binary outcomes.
If you have some idea of the non linearities, you can also
try some generalized linear (or additive) model and use
their diagnostic plots. However, this is not an easy task.
