First try holding down the cancel button for 10 seconds and releasing (might have to do this 2~3 times). The technician manual is located under the lower front panel. I've heard that locating the CCU (brain box, in lower right) freeing it up and giving it a couple of wacks has worked. F09 is pressure switch, E01 is Thermistor. The tech manual will be a great help!!
The drain pump runs constantly in an effort to drain the water. Unplug the washer and, if the washer is overfilled, check the water inlet valve assembly for proper shut-off of water flow. If the water inlet valve assembly is defective, replace it. If the washer is empty when this error code appears, replace the water-level pressure switch.
displays error codes. Though designed to indicate the nature of the
error, to anyone without a copy of a washer manual handy, the codes
might as well be Martian cryptography. Luckily, the Manage My Life
website has partnered with Kenmore and made manuals for each make and
model of Kenmore washer available online. The error codes are
differentiated between top and front-loading machines.
FH Error Code
When a front-loading Kenmore residential washer displays the "FH"
error code, the machine is experiencing a water-inlet problem. A
water-inlet problem is the result of the washer receiving too little
water to operate. The Kenmore owner's manual suggests five home remedies
for this problem: Check that the water faucets
connected to the washer are turned on; that the inlet screens in the
washer's connection hose are not clogged; that the hose is not kinked;
and that the hose is not frozen. If none of these problems are present,
turn off the washer, unplug it, plug it back in, and restart the
FL Error Code
The "FL" error code on a top-loading Kenmore residential washer
indicates that the machine has over filled. When a residential Kenmore
washer is overfull, it will beep every 10 seconds. The pump will cycle
on and off every 30 seconds in an attempt to rectify the problem. To
stop the pump or restart the machine, either disengage and then
re-engage the power source to the washer, or push the overfill reset
switch. If water continues to enter the machines after the "FL" error
has appeared, shut off the inlet flow faucet or the machine will overflow.
F02 Error Code
The "F02" error code on a front-loading Kenmore residential
washer indicates that the machine is experiencing a drainage problem.
Home-remedy solutions for this error code, as suggested by the Kenmore
manual, are similar to those for the "FH" error code: Insure that the
drainage hose is not kinked, frozen, or clogged. If none of these
problems are present, check that the hose is less than 96 inches, or 8
feet, above the floor. A hose more than eight feel from the floor will
not drain properly
F02 error could be caused by the over use of soap, you need to make sure your using 2 tablespoons of HE soap, 1/4 cap at the most. Over sudsing, could cause the water pump to run longer, the pump is designed for 15 min duty cycle which means, 15 minutes on to 45 minutes off. The computer may sense too much soap, and continue to pump. HE soap will cure that, along with SUD error, possible F09 (overflow condition), you may also notice the timing is wrong, HE soap works well in these machines and F/l washer go hand in hand
If the Washer is turning on itself then it is a CU Problem. It must be tripped or not functioning properly.
And about the F09 error. This error comes when the washer has a water overflow. This can be removed by tilting the Machine forward by making a point opened so that the excess water flows out. This overflow is caused when the water is blocked by any other object. This overflow is surely corroding the CU and making the machine to turn on by itself.
Kindly call a technician from Whirlpool to get the internal parts checked.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
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.
"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. This is usually attributed to a malfunctioning pressure switch, loose or broken connector between the Pressure Switch, Drain Pump and Central Control Unit (CCU), or...a drain pump or drain line that has become clogged.
Since this problem occurs periodically during the wash cycle, I would check your drain pump filter for obstructions first. It could be that you have debris lodged in the pump causing it not to drain properly. To access the pump:
1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Placing a couple of blocks of wood under the front feet of the washer will make access much easier.
3. The drain pump is located under the wash tub in the center. HINT: If you own a shop vac, remove the drain line from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum through the drain line. This will remove all residual water from the washer and make clean up later a lot less messy. Now, remove the cover on the drain pump and remove. Clean out the pump filter and check the pump impeller for obstructions.
If you do not own a shop vac, place a bunch of towels around the drain pump BEFORE you open it. There's about a gallon or so of water in the tub, drain line and pump.
Try this first, and let me know if this corrects your problem. If not, you may need to check the pressure switch and wiring. I hope this helps you.
