Whirlpool Duet Washer Error Code E01 F09 – How To Fix – How To Clear?

Whirlpool Duet Washer Error Code E01 F09! I have a Whirlpool Duet washing machine and I constantly get the E01 F09 error code with any wash cycle. I have tried running a diagnostic test on it but I could not get it to work. I have cleaned and checked the pressure switch and the drain pump and both seem to be visually good. What does the error code E01 F09 mean on my Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine?

Whirlpool Duet Washer Error Code E01 F09 means LONG DRAIN TIME.

When your Whirlpool washer goes into drain mode and the drain time is past 8 minutes and not reaching the reset level in the pressure sensor then the valves in the drain are turned off and the drain pump will cease to pump out the water. This means there is a possible fault in the Drain pump, Pressure Switch, or the Electronic Control Board – CCU. Follow the instructions below as the error code may be coming up because a part is bent, clogged or needs to be resecured or cleaned out.
