Question about Maytag Washing Machines
My machine keeps giving me this error message

SOURCE: What does a F09 error mean?
Since Sears doesn't manufacture its own equipment I need a product code number to access the specific features of your appliance. Email me with that info and I can find what the error codes are.

SOURCE: I get an F09 error
"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. The following link explains:
The first thing to try is to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). In some cases this is all that it takes to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code reappears, follow the guidance I provided you.
This is one of those challenging errors to identify sometimes. Start with the easy possibilities, first. In addition, your washer should have a tech sheet inside to assist in component identification and troubleshooting. You can access the tech sheet by removing the lower panel under the door. If the its not taped to the back of the lower panel, it will be located along the interior wall of the cabinet.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Shannabug is right on the money. I had the same problem a few days ago. F09 came up - I hit pause twice - since there was water still in the drum I did a spin and drain.
NOW UNPLUG THE WASHER!
Right below the kickboard there are three torqux screws - now's a good time to get a Torqux folding key set. Once removed - give the side of the kick board a rap on the side - sometimes you may have to use an object to hit it with - it'll fall right off.
On the bottom, dead center is a white cylinder facing you with a screw cap. This is the filter/catch basket - to the right of that is your pump.
Before you screw off the cap, make sure you have lots of paper towels - I had a shop-vac - as I loosened the cap I had the vacuum **** up the water that was coming out - I removed the filter and there was two pencils in there - apparently my son never emptied his pocket. I put the shop vac into the filter chamber and started sucking up anything else that may have been there.
When you put the cap back on, ensure the little notch on top of the cap is facing up, and screw it back on securely. Put the kick board back on - and you're ready to go.
If you continue to have a problem you can clean out the drain tube with a shop-vac - and/or purchase a new pump - but now you see where it is, and how easy it is to change it - you can now save yourself a few hundred dollars by changing it yourself!
IMPORTANT - BEFORE YOU DO THIS UNPLUG THE SYSTEM. This will make sure no injuries, and while you are doing the filter, the computer is getting to reboot itself.

SOURCE: code F09 ???
Hello, the F09 code simple means an electronic communication problem with the washer..
To remove the error display, press pause/cancel twice, if pause/cancel does not work
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for 1 minutes.
2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
3. Re-select the cycle and press start.
If the error on the display, please call for service

SOURCE: Hi. My Whirlpool AWO 5761
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool 'F09' states 'overflow' meaning that it has sensed water in the bottom tray where a lot of the electronics are. That is why it will not continue- for its own safety effectively.
Have the back removed and see if there is actually water there. If so possibly a hose/connection is leaking. If not then the sensor is malfunctioning ;-0(
