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.

I had this happen to my machine on Friday. My husband fixed it last night and it cost $6.59!!!!
One of the hoses inside (i think it was one from drum to drain hose) the machine was rubbing against something which then created a tear in the hose. The hose was leaking and therefore activated the float switch and FA F9 response. The hose is a small black rubber one about 15mm in diameter. My search for a replacement hose took me to Repco where i got fuel injection hose ( which wont be getting any holes in it i assure you!!!!). I could have ordered a part but it was going to take a week and I can just imagine they would have charged thru the nose.

    Hi, thanks for the post, it really saved my day. My 10 years old AWM8125 sixth sense stopped working after starting filling with water, showing F09 and FA shortly after. I followed the advice in this and another post so I checked the above mentioned hose, first, after taking out the upper cover, by blowing air in it with a 150 ml syringe - no pressure at all was building in it. Secondly, I removed the rear cover and I checked the hose. It was loose at the drum-end. I fitted it back and I tested the washing machine with a rinse programme with the drum empty, before reassemblying the covers. I worked just perfect. I reassembled it and now it's washing fine.

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.

Awm8143 FA code


Service manual say FA is "aquastop failure- check aquastop switch", (aquastop switch is flood switch located in base of machine), however looking at the parts view of this machine, it doesn't seem to have a flood switch-odd.
F9 is an overflow problem- manual says to check pressure switch.
Both faults seem to indicate either a leak or overflow problem- remove rear panel and check base for any water, which would indicate a leak.
If OK, next step would be to remove front panel (remove wire and spring from around door seal, remove 2 screws holding door lock, remove 3 screws along base- front panel comes off by pulling down and out towards you-can be a bit tight)
Pressure switch is located just above door lock-it has the black tube going to it- remove tube and blow into switch-you should hear it click.
Also check the chamber that the other end of the tube connects to on the bottom front of tub- this chamber can get blocked up and cause overfill problems.
Please note- always disconnect from power supply before attempting any repairs. If in any doubt, best to leave for an expert.
Good luck!!
