SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: what does F7 mean on a whirlpool 6th sense washing

Hi,
F7 in whirlpools means "Clean the filter”.
The following troubleshooting steps would help fix it. Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill. Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a program this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it. My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filters clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine.

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:

Whirlpool 6th sense washing machine doesn't go into high spin


sounds like you have a blocked hose/pump vent hole.......if its holding water in the bottom of the tub it wont spin it will try but the pcb wont let it do the spin .due to pressure switch telling its got water left... pull pipe off pressure switch check holes not blocked check all hoses......

Whirlpool 6th sense front load washing machine stopping mid cycle. Have to turn power off to reset & restart


I have the same problem. Stops randomly during the cycle and turning off the power for a second re-starts it.

I think it is one of the sensors is faulty - for example the sensor that detects if the load is un-balanced, or if the machine has enough water.

Seems to be a common poblem for these machines.

I'm going to try to find which one later today.
