The Whirlpool washer F9E1 error code is a long drain error, meaning its taking too long for the washer to drain the water. If after 6 minutes of trying to drain the water out of the machine the water level pressure switch does not reset, the ACU ( main control board ) will shut the cycle off and show the F9E1 error on the user interface display. Under normal circumstances the washer should completely drain within 2 minutes.
This error is most commonly caused by a stopped up drain pump / drain pump filter trap, a stopped up drain hose or a failing or failed drain pump.
