F09 Error = Overflow Condition

If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is Closed for more than 60 seconds

an Overflow condition will occur. In an Overflow condition, the Door will remain

locked, and the Drain Pump will run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed

twice and the Display is cleared. Unplug the unit to service.

Potential Causes

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked

• Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and

Central Control Unit (CCU)

• Check/ Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects

• Check for Drain Pump Failure

• Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off

• Check the Pressure switch for proper operation

A typical HE3 Kenmore Elite washer the F09 code indicates and overflow has been sensed. This can be because of suds or a failure of the pump or pressure switch.

Suds is a common problem with the newer 2X-3X super concentrated detergents.

A pump that is partially blocked might cause this error

Hi. My Whirlpool AWO 5761 washing machine has an F09 error message and the door is locked with washing inside it. I have pressed the reset button and tried to start other programs, but the message...

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(
Good luck,
John C

Whirpool awm 8125 overflow failure F09

In the service manual, F09 refers to the pressure switch (pressostat).
In fact, the causes may be all that can fool the control unit.
To fix F09, the unit must be inspected by someone who has the minimum knowledge of how the washing machines work.
Whoever claims this error must be willing to investigate and provide the required details.

Panasonic dmr-ez48v error f09 what is it?

If I have got the right machine than F09 is an electrical fault. If It is a K Deck model (you need to check) then it means: No serial clock linking IC2004, IC7005 and IC7701.
