Hi,

Error F09 means Overflow Condition

If the Overflow contact on the pressure switch is Closed for more than 60 seconds and Overflow condition will occur. In an Overflow condition, the Door will remain locked, and the Drain Pump will run constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the Display is cleared. Unplug the unit to service.


Thank You

My whirlpool 6th sense front loader has stopped whilst full of water, half way through a wash. Have emptied machine, Still no power, machine wont turn on.


Hello Janine Gooch,

Went out on our internet trying to find your trouble shooting guide (typically in the OWNERS MANUAL)...

Finally ended up in AU ... No luck.
(September 9th is only 6 hours old here (SF Bay area)).

Your local peers have NOTHING NICE to say about that machine... particularly the CONTROL BOARD:

Hope this helps (says top load... shows front)

Whirlpool 6th sense washing machine


All washing machines have a water level sensor, this can be a tube into the drum that leads up to a switch normally attached to the inside higher up, what happens is the tube gets clogged up with muck and gives a false reading, which needs cleaning out.
Another problem may be your input valve normally a sngle cold water input, the valve can get clogged with limescale and its just slow to switch off even when the power is off. The default is a closed position.
Try switching the machine off at the plug as soon as it finishes, if it starts filling up its the input valve, these can be under twenty pounds on popular auction websites.

Whirlpool awm 8125 fault code F09 followed by FA


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.

My Whirlpool 6th sense washer displayed f09 so I left it. next day it seemed OK but does part of the wash and comes up with FA


Thank you for your response. I finally managed to contact someone at Whirlpool who advised that the error code FA indicates a component problem and may require a replacement part. Unfortunately a serviceman is required.

Hi i have a maytag front loading washing machine its about 4 years old haven't been able to find a model number either on the back or inside the door i get an number 5 error. the machine starts it filling...


I believe you are describing a tS code.

If it is tS showing it is an indication that the termistor is shorted. The thermistor is the temperature sensing device used on this dryer.

Before replacing the themistor check for a clogged lint screen or dirty vent pipe.

If these are clear and you are still getting the code the thermistor would need replaced, the resistance of the thermistor should be about 10K ohms at room temperature.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

F9/FA Whirlpool 6th sense frontloader washer


F09 is "overflow failure" - check drain pump, pressure switch, blocked drain.
FA is the emergency shutoff switch that detects when water is pooling underneath the machine.
