Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
I own a Whirlpool AWO 9565 washing machine. Once I choose a program, lines start blinking on the panel for a few seconds until the "F11" error message shows up. It also makes a rhythmic sound like a clicking of some sort while blinking. If I turn the knob to a program, it seems to start automatically without me pressing the start button. What is wrong with my machine? Ps. I can't find the manual anywhere.
The F11 fault code indicates a serial communication error between the Machine Control board and the Motor Control board. This can be caused by several different problems.
A failed Machine Control board could be failing to provide the Motor Control board with proper voltage. If this is causing the F11 code, then the Machine Control board would need to be replaced.
The Machine Control board could also be failing to supply proper voltage to the door lock assembly. The Machine Control board would need to be replaced for this failure as well.
Voltage flows from the Machine Control board to the Door Lock Assembly. The Door Lock then energizes and closes the Door Lock MAIN Switch. Voltage flows out of the Door Lock Main Switch to the Motor Control board. So if you have power into the Door Lock Assembly but not out of the Main Door Lock Switch, it will give you an F11. If so, you will need to replace the Door Lock Assembly.
You could have a bad Motor Control board that is causing this failure. A bad wiring connection between the Motor Control board and the Machine Control board could also cause this fault code. A bad wiring connection between the Motor Control board and the drive motor is also a possible failure. A failed drive motor could also cause the F11.
With so many possible causes for this failure, I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair the problem in your washer. If you are able to unplug the washer and check the wiring connections, you may be able to find a loose wire harness connection that is causing the problem. Much of the diagnosis for the potential problems noted above requires live voltage checks. I do not recommend conducting these types of checks yourself. Unless you want to take a chance and replace the Machine Control board and the Door Lock Assembly,

You most probably have a faulty water inlet valve...Not an uncommon problem..They can sound ok, but when you check the detergent drawer there will only be a trickle..Replace the inlet valve...Good luck...Nomess

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Providing that the tap is turned fully on AND the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, this is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(

SOURCE: Hi. My Whirlpool AWO 5761
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool 'F09' states 'overflow' meaning that it has sensed water in the bottom tray where a lot of the electronics are. That is why it will not continue- for its own safety effectively.
Have the back removed and see if there is actually water there. If so possibly a hose/connection is leaking. If not then the sensor is malfunctioning ;-0(
