Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
I got an F09 error and overflow. Huge overflow! There was a drain problem, and I cleaned it out. (there was a 5 dollar bill in it) Even though I turned the machine off and unplugged it water still flows in. I had to turn off the water at the outside valve. Could the large volume of water have damaged the water intake valve or the logic board? I'm going to dry it out and see if it resets itself when I turn it on. If it doesn't can I fix it myself? I hate this machine. It has been nothing but trouble.
It sounds like the water inlet valve may have jammed open , see if water still enters when machine is switched off if it does not then you probably have a short on the electronic module.

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.
• 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

F09 error occurs due to overflow condition, if the
overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds and
overflow condition will occur. To start with check the drain hose and make sure
it is not clogged, also try to clean the drain pump filter. If everything is
fine and the drain pump is running then check the wire harness to the drain
pump and control unit. Please post a comment if you need more help.
