Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
What does this code mean?
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!
