SOURCE: won't wash;lights flash on spin speed ,wash

F09 means "overflow failure"
FA means that a leak has been detected.

Disconnect power and dry water from inside. While power is off you can also check the drain hose at the back. To verify that the problem is not siphoning caused by incorrect drain hose settings, restart the washer with the drain hose set down in a bucket on the floor and run a test cycle.

If that does not fix the problem, disconnect power again and check the drain filter housing connected to the drain pump. The drain filter is accessible from the bottom front, it should be located behind a trim panel. There is a protection cap that is removed rotating anticlockwise. Remove the cap and collect water in the drain system.

If still no luck, then the machine must be disassembled and parts must be tested.

Check hoses and inlet valve for internal leaks, check drain pump and pressure switch. Tucked in the control assembly there should be a tech sheet in an envelope with wiring diagrams and diagnostics.

Try first disconnecting power and inspecting the drain system, as explained above.

Fault code FO9

F09 means that it's running on the wrong power frequency.

Is this a model designed for a different country than the one you're using it in?

Does your owner's manual show a way to select a different power frequency?

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, see for support.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

AG-DV1000 Mini DV... ERROR F09

I believe that this error message indicates that the heads are not spinning. The tape should be ejected. This unit requires a servicer. There are a number of reasons for the heads not spinning. Finding out the cause in your specific unit will require testing and measurements with test gear. There are no user serviceable parts inside these units. Please see an authorized Panasonic service center.
