Tip & How-To about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Continual electronic problems

I have spent a fortune on my machine getting door locks replaced, etc, but finally when the repair dude said I was going to have to replace the entire control panel the next time the machine wouldn't stop, start, lock the door, or whatever the ailment at the time might be, I took the top off, and manually checked all of the connections "under the hood". Machine worked and I have done this same thing five times in the last six months with the same results. With the way these things shake, they must loosen connections. It is worth a try, costs nothing, and I have had priceless success. Good luck.

dish washer will not latch


Latch is locked, but the door is open, panel will not light up. Tried to close door after loading, wouldn't close, water started running, tried to figure out what was wrong, something in the way, etc, but nothing. Then water sprayed all over, started pushing buttons, and finally it quit, now latch is locked, but the door is open.

That is correct, your tonearm needs to be replaced.

By adjusting that top screw on the tonearm, you only made the problem worse. It's very hard to realign that screw, as those are machine calibrated, and once tampered with, almost impossible to get back to exact factory settings. We recommend replacement of the entire Technics tonearm.

washer won't do anything!


You have a burned out door assembly. This is very common, min just went out. I purchased a new door latch assembly at my local parts supplier and hubby is replacing now. The part costs $50-$55, but is cheaper than a repair man if you can replace it yourself. Must remove entire front panel from washer to get to door latch to replace, but should fix the problem.
