    It beeps and pauses mid cycle. It doesn't happen all the time, just when I've got a full load.

F09 is listed as 'Waterflow Problem' and means there is a problem with the water pump. Either something clogging the pump, or a pump malfunction.

Check for something clogging the water pump first. To do that open the lower access panel by unscrewing the 3 torx screws at the very bottom of that panel, then you will see the plastic water pump in the middle front, just unscrew the handle.

You may wish to have some dry towels on hand as some water will come out.

Oh! My! God! There was 3 baby socks and a bunch of nasty smelling lint in the strainer catch thingee. It is working just fine now. The water is coming out like a garden hose instead of dribbling out like before. Thanks!

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

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608557-f09_error_code

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.

If you have questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

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 Panasonic.net 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.
