I noticed water on the floor around the front of my washer. Then I received an F09 code. Are these two things connected or are they two seperate problems?

Our washing machine will not drain, and keeps bringing up "LD" error code. It keeps beeping and the timer isn't going down.

  1. residential washer 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.
  2. FH Error Code
  3. 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 machine.
  4. FL Error Code
  5. 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.
  6. F02 Error Code
  7. 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

Code f02 comes up. washer will not spin.

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

Is showing a flashing f09

Hello Sir, 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.

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.

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...

"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.

Code F14

Greetings pattiprem,

This error message can sometimes be caused by a power glitch. Try unplugging the unit for 2 minutes to see if this fixes the error. Another cause can be a problem with your Central Control Unit.

Thank you,

Error code F09/Whirlpool Duet front loading washer

"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.

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.
