Do you have a brand name, model or serial number? With out knowing what types of machine it is, you can only give the vague response of make sure the shipping materials are removed, the unit is level and that it has been installed properly.

Drain water


"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.

I have a Kenmore front loading washer. I normally leave the front door open when not in use. I came home the other night to water dripping from my dining room ceiling (Washing machine is on second floor...


The water solenoid could be defective. A solenoid is an electrical switch that pulls a shaft out of the water line to let the water flow in. The timer controls this along with water level sensors. That solenoid is a big electric magnet that operates when the power is applied to the electric coil and it snaps the shaft out of the water line allowing water to flow. It also compresses a spring around the shaft and when the power is removed from the coil, the spring snaps the shaft(valve) back into the seat of the water line. If the spring is weak or broken or blocked by debris from hard water, it does not close all the way and allows water to leak. Very similar to a leaky faucet.i expect that the solenoid will have to be replaced.

How do I drain the barrel


If this is a top loading washer, an easy method of draining the wash tub is to pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and lower it into a bucket. Gravity will allow the water to drain. If the washer is in a laundry room or utility room with a drain in the floor, you can simply lay the drain hose on the floor and allow it to run into the drain.

A less messy method is to use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain line to pull the water from the wash tub. Most of the these top loaders have a capacity of about 30 gallons, so you will need to empty the shop vac a few times to empty the tub. Make sure you place the drain hose back into the standpipe when you need to empty the vacuum or gravity will force the water on to your floor.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Fowl odor (sewer like) when washer is running.


Can you see the washer drain line,or is it inside the wall.
You should never smell sewer, I would find a good plumber,or a handy man that knows plumbing, and have him open the wall (if needed)
and install p-trap where the washer is located, at about floor level.
From what you said I think that someone ran a straight line to the cellar and installed the p-trap down there, also have them check the line to see if the line has been connected to a breather line, if not have him install a breather line right there with a one way breather valve inside the wall. The buildup and mildew around the compartment is due to the way it was made by the MFG of the machine, most 1000.00 front washers have a very poor design with this. All you can do is to remove it and clean it with bleach once a month. If you live in an nice area,but not very rich, the cost to do the drain should be around or under 350.00. I hope you get this squared away with no problems.

I'M HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY WASHER THE WATER IS NOT STAYING FULL IT JUST RUNS BUT NEVER FILLS UP.


This sounds like a siphon condition. Remove the drain hose (the thicker black hose from the back of the machine) out of the wall. Now re-insert it back in only 6". When they go in too far, the drain in your house that prevents odors from coming back out of your drain causes a siphon that pulls the water back out when the washer is filling. Make sure to tie the drain hose down with a tie so it does not pop back out when the washer is draining/ spinning.

My washer will not fill during the cycle for high agitation


You may have a siphoning problem. Double check your drain hose and make sure it's not shoved down in the standpipe too far. The standpipe is the drain line at the wall. If your drain hose is placed too deep into the standpipe, or if you have the top of the standpipe sealed off, the washer will begin to fill and continue to drain at the same time. The symptom will appear as if the washer is constantly filling. You need to leave an air gap opening around the rim of the standpipe, and the drain hose should only be placed about 4 to 6 inches into the drain line. I hope this helps you. Post back if this is not the problem you are experiencing and I will try to provide you with a better solution. Let me know if you have any questions.

You could have a siphoning problem. This can occur when you have your drain hose shoved down in the standpipe too far, or if there's no air gap where the drain hose enters the standpipe.

The standpipe is the drain line at the wall where your washer drain hose is placed. There should be enough air space around the drain hose to allow air to enter the drain line. Also the end of the drain hose should not be shoved so far down into the standpipe that is resting in the trap where water sits (about 4 to 6 inches is sufficient). If either of these conditions occur the washer will start to fill and then begin siphoning (or draining) water from the tub.

Do not seal the top of the standpipe either. Many consumers seal the pipe in an effort to prevent overflows or odors from escaping from the drain line. This actually causes more harm than good and results in washer drain problems.

I hope this helps you. Please post back if you have any further questions or concerns.
