Re: What does a F09 error mean?

Since Sears doesn't manufacture its own equipment I need a product code number to access the specific features of your appliance. Email me with that info and I can find what the error codes are.

Machine stops working and shows F09 what does this mean

Really need the make and model as different manufacturers use the same code to mean different things. Hotpoint/Indesit/Creda F09 on almost all appliances means "Eprom Fault" this is a problem with the main control chip and you will need an engineer to reprogram the main module or swap it out. If it's Bosch, then the good news is F09 means "Heater Fault" which almost certainly means a cheap £20 replacement heating element needs fitting

I have automatic hitachi washing mashine 110Q it has an error f9 what does it mean plz?

"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem yourself:

Read through the information provided and check all the common sense things that you can easily eliminate, first. For more in-depth troubleshooting procedures, refer to the tech sheet that came with your washer. The tech sheet is located inside your appliance. To access, remove the lower toe panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge (you may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access - a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

The tech sheet will either be located directly behind the toe panel, or affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes troubleshooting tips, error code definitions, test points, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. You will need to use the tech sheet to accurately locate and perform some of the steps I have outlined. F09 Error Code Fixya

The machine is not filling with water than it shows F09 and then FA on screen. Its a 6th sense and about 4 years old


Error F09 means Overflow Condition

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

Thank You

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F09 means heat fault. Please check that the filter is not blocked. The filter should be emptied after every load and/or cleaned once in a week thoroughly. If still the issue is not resolved then you’ll need to get the heat sensor replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Error codes on Kenmore Elite washer

F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears. Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right. Press this button until no-spin lights. Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display. Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08. If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.

while F09 is the water pump. It usually means something is clogging it. Take the front cover off of the washer and the water pump is located right in the middle front. Unscrew the cover to the pump and make sure there is nothing clogging it.
