    If you look in the Manual, Page 20, it says Fuilt 9 is a Drain Failure. Check the Pump and you may find something in the Pump that stops ti working. I have found Bobby Pins, Coins, Nails all sorts of Junk in Pumps.

Front loader whirlpool washing machine won't go thru cycles.


"o" is an unsual code. usually it will have an "f" then a number. it may be that you are having a draining issue. is the unit full or have some water left in it? if so take off the front panel and see if you can remove the sump cover. be ready for water to come out, then remove whatever is blocking the pump and sump area. it most liekly has lint or items in there causing no drain.

Washing cycle starts and takes hours even for short cycle.


Try checking for good water supply.
Pull out detergent tray and check for good water supply during filling.
if poor filling-
Try checking the hoses.
Turn taps off, disconnect from machine, place hose end in sink, turn tap on and check for good water flow.
if the hose has a red indicator in the side of the hose (end which is fitted to the tap) - Red indicator is a failed hose.(for models with Water Stop hose type "B")
