SOURCE: whirlpool duet front loading washer purchased in 2004, beeps and displays F9 code during whitest white cycle or heavyduty cycle when washing towels, this provokes unusual delays, frustration and ineff
Boyz, your machine is draining too slowly. When it initiates a drain cycle, the water level switch is sensing the water level is still too high after 60 seconds so the computer stops and generates this fault code. Here are the things to check; * Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or inked. * Check Wire Harness connectors 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 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.

F21 is a drain error code. You likely have something stuck in your pump. Remove the lower front panel. (there are 3 #20 torx screws on the bottom of it holding it on) Once you have the panel off, the white object in the front center is your pump.
Remove the #20 torx screw out of there to make life easier. Slide the pump forward slightly so you can raise it. Now, on the front of the pump is a handel that you will need to turn counter clockwise. So after placing something underneath to catch
the water left inside the machine ( a large bowl or bucket), turn the knob slowly counter clockwise. If there is too much water for your container, screw it back clockwise and go empty your container. Repeat until all of the water is out. Once that is done, unscrew it all of the way and slide if forward. You will usually find missing socks, toys, coins and all other kinds of fun objects. While you have the trap out, reach in with your finger to the hole on the right. Try and turn the wheel inside to make sure there isn't anything keeping it from turning (bobby pins, nails,
screws, etc) If there is, you will need to unclamp both hoses on the back of the pump and remove any further forign objects. Now re-assemble the unit but leave the panel off. Run a quick fill and drain to make sure all of your connections are tight and
you don't have any leaks. Put your panel back in and you're ready to go.

Called 1-800-253-1301 was told by the Whirlpool agent that there was a quality issue associated with the F1 fault code. They would take care of parts and labor free of charge! My machine is 28 months old. Talked to a woman named Valerie.

The problem with the fabric softener not dispensing is not likely related to and F03 error code due to the washer not draining.
For the dispenser problem, I recommend that you pull the dispenser drawer out and clean it thoroughly.
The fabric softener dispenser works on a siphoning principle.
Make sure that the siphon hole in the dispenser is clear and not restricted or plugged.
You can fill the fabric softener compartment with water and make sure that it is siphoning properly while you are cleaning it.
Make sure that the cover is properly replaced on the fabric softener dispenser when the drawer is replaced in the washer.
You can use the diagnostic test described below to test the fabric softener dispenser.
If the softener dispenser does not fill and dispense properly, you could have a failed dispenser valve, a failed control board or a wiring failure between components.
You indicated that you tested the pump and that it is good. You could have a clogged drain hose or a clogged washer drain that would prevent the washer from draining.
You could also have a failed drain pump even though it runs. If the impeller is jammed or damaged, it will not pump out the water in the washer.
You will likely need to unplug the washer and drain the water out of the tub using a wet/dry shop vacuum.
To check the pump and drain hose at the bottom of the washer, remove the bottom front service panel and remove the drain pump. You may find a clog or restriction in the drain pump or connecting hoses. If the drain pump is damaged or will not work, it will need to be replaced.
The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.
