Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
As stated above, we have a whirlpool washer/dryer set (duet large capacity electric washer with matching gaz dryer. Ever since the machines were purchased, we have encountered a recurring problem with the washer. When washing cotton towels in the Whitest White or Heavy duty cycle, the cycle often stops with a beeping noise and the display of the F9 code, which incindentally is NOT defined in the owner's manual and the the pause/cancel button must be pressed twice and the cycle continued. This can occur 2 to 3 times during a single cycle provoking lost time, long cycles, frustration etc. Please help as the service repairmen have been less than clear as to what the problem is and we are close to losing confidence in the Whirlpool product that was so highly recommonded. Initially, the problem was caused as we understood due to the use of the wrong liquid detergent (NOT an HE product) We have since changed and still no resolution. Regards TNK
Boyz, your machine is draining too slowly. When it initiates a drain cycle, the water level switch is sensing the water level is still too high after 60 seconds so the computer stops and generates this fault code. Here are the things to check; * Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or inked. * Check Wire Harness connectors to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU) * Check/Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects * Check for Drain Pump Failure * Check the Inlet Valve for proper shut off * Check the Pressure switch for proper operation

Every 2 years i seem to have the same F9 problem, well the trap at the pump
catches everything left over in my kids' pocket.
to clean this trap , remove the front cover at the bottom in the center is
the pump, remove the front screw and the pump is free to move about
3" forward , put a small bucket to drain the pump in
turn counter clockwise until it comes loose.
this solves the problem for me.

I have a Sears Elite front loader washer Model Number 110.42832 200 that I purchased in July 2002 from Sears. In July 2007 (2 months ago), the Sears guy came and did a maintenance tune up as per the extended warranty. I had not been having any problems; the tune up was free and was part of the extended warranty program. Since his visit I am having F09 error problems. I opened the front kick panel and opened the circular white plastic door with the handle to check for debris. Water came pouring out. I did not find any debris but ran the item under the faucet and replaced it securely. I ran the washer using the drain and spin mode to end the cycle. I keep having the same problem with the F09 error message coming up and the cycle stopping. I again opened the drain door to let the water pour out and did the drain and spin routine. I have used Tide HE detergent for the past 5 years. I have not moved the unit. And it was recently serviced. Last week I had a SUD error and so I ran it with no detergent etc and then the F09 error message came up. I have the manual and I have read the messages saying to check this and check that but I really have no clue how to check the pressure switch etc. I might do 1 load of laundry a week or 2 over the past 5 years so it hasn't been used excessively, I believe. I appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thank you.

Are you using HE rated detergent? You MUST use HE (high efficiency) rated detergent in this washer. Your washer uses less water than traditional machines. With less water, the wash action can create too much sudsing when regular detergent is used. The lack of HE use will also cause the machine to use a greater amount of water and cause your error code F09.

With my machine, I cleaned out out the trap (yuck!), and then had to replace the pump when I was getting a F3 code, just 2 weeks ago. NOW, i'm getting the F9 code intermittently since then. What do I need to check now and where is it???
