    Yeah me too, it starts off as F09 then goes to FA. We've had it looked at already and it was fixed briefly, but its started again. I've tried turning it off at the wall, trying just a rinse and drain cycle, letting it sit for an hour...nothing changed. It was fine yesterday.

    I have the F9/FA problem on my front loader 6th sense Whirlpool washer. (AWM 8143 6kg).



    I've opened the round cover for the filter, removed it, checked the propeller thingy spins etc. Nothing caught in there. Replaced it, poured 500ml water into the soap dispenser (as per the manual) and it still doesn't work.

    It starts with water entering the drum (I can see it going in) but after 10 secs it stops and the error comes up - F09.

    A few times while trying different things (draining, "rebooting" etc) the FA error has come up but is soon replaced by F09 again.



    I have not had it work since this error first came up.



    Started when the soap dispenser was clogged and water/soap flakes (my husband put flakes in by mistake) started pouring out the dispenser drawer. Unclogged the soap build up behind the drawer and poured some hot water down the hole to clear any other build up.



    Any ideas?

Try tilting machine forward, if you get a dribble of water there is a leak inside some where. The dribble of water you see sits in a pan and sets off aquasure sensor and stops machine to prevent flooding.

The error code F/H for this machine means that the drain pump is blocked. Look at your manual for how to access the drain pump and clean it out. This will resolve your issue.

I require an operation manual for a Whirlpool AWM302


The Whirlpool UK site has support for the AWM 302. The direct link to the manual is http://docs.whirlpool.eu/_doc/501910006566GB.pdf . If this isn't your model, start at http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/support/instructions-for-use/instructions-for-use.content.html and click on Search. Then search using the Commercial code box. (There are also washers with the commercial code AWM 302/3 and AWM 302/4.)

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool AWM 8143 - Starts a cycle and then starts flashing open door light and won't go further. Door is shut properly. Tried turning it off at the power and back on to no avail.


This is either a problem with the door lock itself or most probably a motor failiure as the door open light also indicates some kind of motor problem. If your appliance is 4/5 years and above then you will most likely need to change the set of carbon brushes on the motor and this will solve your problem
