Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

I get an F09 error and when I push the pause button the washer says there is 22 minutes left.  I can push start and the machine will start washing again.  Sometimes it will finish washing and other times I will keep getting the F09 error.

"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. The following link explains:

The first thing to try is to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). In some cases this is all that it takes to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, follow the guidance I provided you.

This is one of those challenging errors to identify sometimes. Start with the easy possibilities, first. In addition, your washer should have a tech sheet inside to assist in component identification and troubleshooting. You can access the tech sheet by removing the lower panel under the door. If the its not taped to the back of the lower panel, it will be located along the interior wall of the cabinet.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Pause error unit will not wash


Hello cvaughn37_cv - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.

Error Message


Your owner's manual may give a troubleshooting guide for the error code your machine might give you. Is it possible you have locked out the control panel? I "think" the calypso has a control lockout, usually a start button or cancel button. If you press it in for 3-5 seconds, it can lock or unlock panel. If all else fails, try unplugging it and see it it will drain out the water.

My washer had 1 minute left before the spin cycle was complete.


Push and hold the START button for three seconds if you want it to finish off that last minute.

...or...

Push and hold the PAUSE button for three seconds to stop the cycle.

Peace.
