SOURCE: Error code F09/Whirlpool Duet front loading washer

"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. This is usually attributed to a malfunctioning pressure switch, loose or broken connector between the Pressure Switch, Drain Pump and Central Control Unit (CCU), or...a drain pump or drain line that has become clogged.

Since this problem occurs periodically during the wash cycle, I would check your drain pump filter for obstructions first. It could be that you have debris lodged in the pump causing it not to drain properly. To access the pump:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Placing a couple of blocks of wood under the front feet of the washer will make access much easier.
3. The drain pump is located under the wash tub in the center. HINT: If you own a shop vac, remove the drain line from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum through the drain line. This will remove all residual water from the washer and make clean up later a lot less messy. Now, remove the cover on the drain pump and remove. Clean out the pump filter and check the pump impeller for obstructions.

If you do not own a shop vac, place a bunch of towels around the drain pump BEFORE you open it. There's about a gallon or so of water in the tub, drain line and pump.

Try this first, and let me know if this corrects your problem. If not, you may need to check the pressure switch and wiring. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Electrolux EW 1005f washing machine trouble.

The number 39404040 is the only one listed on their website.
If it is down because of local problems - I cannot be certain.

Electrolux India has very carefully hidden its service center number on its website. The only option you have is to drill-down to the local customer service center. Unfortunately the number given for Ms. Millenium Service Center for South Kolkata (033-24573470 / 24451120 ) doesn't work. I had to hunt down a certain executive to finally find the real phone number for booking complaint across India.

The Eletrolux India customer service number is (they have listed) 39404040.

Keep your model number, date of purchase and shop dealer name handy while making your call.

The customer service for Electrolux in India is suspect to say the least. CLICK HERE For a number of service centers in a few locations (you will need to read through the posts to determine the cities and corresponding #s called by posters.)

However after reading the posts - Your best option may be to have the part mailed to you from a different country!!

The toll-free number in the us is - 877-435-3287.

CLICK HERE to eMail Electrolux.

They will be able to direct you to a service center in India, or get you the parts you require.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

If you need further assistance please contact me again first.

Possibly the Main Capacitor is leaked/ burned.Try replacing it with new ones.

To locate it, you can follow the schematics diagram behind the machine.
It's look's like a mini can with cable, sometimes the color is white, and on the body written 25uF/400 VAC, or something like that.

Hope this work, if still won't, contact me for furthure assistant.

Do I have to take apart the whole machine to fix the drain pump on my LG WM3455HW washer/dryer combo? I can't seem to find any instructions on this model.

Lucky You. The newer models of LG Combo units WM34xx have the filter on the right hand side and the pump can be changed through the bottom panel.

LG Intello washing machine, model: WD12235 Front Load

Why dont you people read the user's manual? You wil learn abt your machine, to a certain extent. Try "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds. Works for other machines...............And please rate me if helped................
