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

Water is not getting inside my washing machine.

If water is not getting into the machine, check the following:

To start cut power to the applianc3e for five minutes, this can fix a jammed timer control.

Check if the hot and cold water faucets are connected, and have good pressure.

If that does not work you may need to call a repairman to test the following:

The inlet valve must be tested by energizing it , testing valve solenoid, and reading voltages to identify a fault in wiring (contact).

If the inlet valve is fine when tested, worth having a look at the water level switch, if it is stuck on overfill position , it will prevent water from getting into the machine.

Lastly,the timer control board should be tested, to ensure that the problem is not a faulty timer keeping the inlet valve on close position.

washer stopped and wont turn off


Unplug the appliance from power, or trip the circuit breaker and cut power to the appliance for about five minutes.

While appliance is unplugged check that the drain hose is not kinked and empty water from inside the machine.

Let me know if you still have the problem when you connect the appliance back.
If the appliance does not start back, then there is a faulty part, in that case give me the model number as printed on service tag and tell me when the appliance had been purchased, also tell me the country of purchase.

Many thanks.

Dishwasher not running


Check door lock, if sensor in there is stuck the machine won't operate

Check also the water level sensor, if it is stuck the cycle wont start.

If the machine is still stuck then it is probably a faulty timer control board.

Before replacing the control board , the inlet valve, impeller, wiring harness, and additional electronic controls must be tested.

Try also unplugging the appliance from main, or tripping circuit breaker to cut power for ten minutes. ~This may unlock a jammed control board.

I have a Whirlpool AWG338 that has suddenly stopped drawing water. It will run a cycle as if water is there but never actually draws from the main. It has both hot and cold supply.


If water is not getting into the machine, and the hot and cold water faucets are connected, and have good pressure, then parts that can cause the problem are inlet valve, water level switch and timer control.
