Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

2 Answers

WFS1071AW is my type of whirlpool front loader

The water entry into the machine is fine with nothing blocking it. But i keep getting the red light on for "water tap closed". At one point the water did start flowing in but soon stopped and turn on the warning light again. I have noticed a couple of other people have had similar problems but there was no solution provided. Please suggest how to fix it??

Thank you,

    Hi I have the same problem. After the machine fills and proceeds to wash, the red light appears suggesting the tap is closed. I have cleaned out the inlet pipes thoroughly, however it still happens. Any other suggestions???

    Thanks Chris

New machine water tap closed the machine keeps cutting out and you need to be there for the whole of the wash. shop are saying there isn't enough water pressure. i have the same water pressure as always ' so they are saying its because all machine have been changed from anologue to digital and i will have this problem regardless of what machine they replace it with. do you think this is correct?

Hello baud Welcome,
You said the water entry into the machine is fine with nothing blocking it. But you keep getting the red light on for "water tap closed". At one point the water did start flowing in but soon stopped and turn on the warning light again. Please suggest how to fix it??

I believe this sounds like the screens are dirty and stopping water flow so it shuts down!
Dry all of the below suggestions.

Washer displaying code message and or tone sounds
“F20” (Water Inlet Problem—no water or insufficient
water supply)
First:
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug
washer or disconnect power.Leave power off for 5 minutes. This will reset the system!
Check the following:
Are water faucets completely turned on?
*****Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?
Remove hose from washer an clean screens at water inlet!

Are water inlet hoses kinked?
Are water inlet hoses frozen?
Plug in washer or reconnect power. Re-select cycle and press
START. If the problem remains, call for service.

Let me know how you do.
Thank You Huuum

I have a WFS1071AW-7.5kg. It is stopping mid cycle and showing a red "Clean Pump" light on the front panel. Where is the pump and how do I clean it? Your help would be appreciated.


The pump is hidden below the removable kick plate at the bottom of the machine. Hold the plinth on either side and pul it downwards and outwards to remove it. The filter is unscrewed by turning anticlockwise.

This is covered in page 11 of your manual, a pathetically poor scanned PDF copy of which is supplied by whirlpool Australia if you go to this web address:

http://www.whirlpool.com.au/app.cnt/whr/au_AU/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001/DOCTYPE/IFU/DOCLANGUAGE/AU

Enter WFS1071AW As the commercial code and select language ENGLISH

Note: This model has no drain hose to get rid of residual water, suggest you tip the machine back 45 degrees and have a towel ready to catch any leaked water.

I have a front loader WFS1071AW 7.5kg and it leaks loads of water and suds from under the detergent tray when filling. What is wrong with it???


The hose down from the back of the dispenser to the drum is blocked.

Take out the soap drawer and use a babys feeding bottle brush to clean out the pipe

Either that or take off the top of the machine (Normally two screws on the back of the top panel)

Then remove the pipe and clean it you may need a pair of Corbin Clip pliers to do so , at a push use Mole Grips

Washing cycle starts and takes hours even for short cycle.


Try checking for good water supply.
Pull out detergent tray and check for good water supply during filling.
if poor filling-
Try checking the hoses.
Turn taps off, disconnect from machine, place hose end in sink, turn tap on and check for good water flow.
if the hose has a red indicator in the side of the hose (end which is fitted to the tap) - Red indicator is a failed hose.(for models with Water Stop hose type "B")
