20 Most Recent Whirlpool AWM8143 Front Load Washer Questions & Answers

F09 is "overflow failure" - check drain pump, pressure switch, blocked drain.
FA is the emergency shutoff switch that detects when water is pooling underneath the machine.

The drain pump runs constantly in an effort to drain the water. Unplug the washer and, if the washer is overfilled, check the water inlet valve assembly for proper shut-off of water flow. If the water inlet valve assembly is defective, replace it. If the washer is empty when this error code appears, replace the water-level pressure switch.

Hello, the F09 code simple means an electronic communication problem with the washer..
To remove the error display, press pause/cancel twice, if pause/cancel does not work
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for 1 minutes.
2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
3. Re-select the cycle and press start.

If the error on the display, please call for service
