Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer stopped and will not drain properly.

My 5 1/2 year old machine stopped and willnot drain properly.
About a monthe ago this happened and i cleared the white drain part and hoses under the machine.
Now it is stopping again so I unplugged the machine and started again, it starts and makes noises from the black part under the machine attached to the white draining part and does not drain, will not go on spin.
Do i need to replace this black part .... I think its the pump.....
Please let me know asap, I have 3 girls and going to the laundry mat cost me a small fortune yesterday.....maybe i should just buy the part and use my own machine.
Thanks,
Karina

    Thank you very much ...... I did check out the price for this part at an appliance part store in Barrie Ontario and they said it would cost $159.00 but I will check the places you suggested and price compare.

    Love this website.....You guys are amazing.

    I will go buy the part and see if that works.

    Thanks again,

The black part you mention is the drain pump motor. If the pump impeller is damaged, the motor may still run, but the pump will not drain any water. If the washer does not drain, it will not go into the final spin. The pump is sold as an entire assembly. Go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your COMPLETE model number. The pump will be listed under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading as item number 10 (part #280187). This is not a standard part that an appliance repair center would normally carry in their inventory, so it would have to be ordered anyway. So...why not cut out the middle man? You can use other web sites for a cost comparison, but this is the cheapest place I have found it listed (use the part number listed above for your search)

If you need instructionson how to replace the pump, you can use this link:

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Intermittant 0E error


I believe the OE error is generated if it takes too long for the washing machine to drain. If the drain is blocked or the pump is is not functioning well, the error will show up intermittently. I believe we experienced a similar error a couple of years back. After verifying the drain was clear, I replaced the drain motor, I believe the washing machine was about 5 years old at that time.

I have had this problem with two of my previous washers a top loader and front loader.Each time it was a faulty pump that drains the water from the tub after the wash cycle is complete. If the water does not drain from the tub the machine will not go to the spin cycle. Both of my washers were 5 or 6 years old when this occurred. If the washer is only 5 months old it should be under the manufactures warranty. Good Luck.

My washer will not work in the spin and rinse cycle.


Whats happened is that the clutch/brake assembly is stuck.Without a qualified service tech. you can really get taken if the repairman doesn't know the trick to this.I can walk you through this step by step and you need only a 5/16 nut driver or socket.

Kenmore Elite Extra Heavy Duty Calypso Top Load Washing Machine


I had this problem and did not have the time to fix it myself so I called Sears. The "tech" looked at his laptop, called his "supervisor" a couple of times and told my wife that both control boards needed replaced at a cost of over $500. The manuals, with testing procedures for the inclined, are on the inside, front cover.
The CE error is a communications failure and on mine it required replacement of the AVS board. I bought the part at a local supply house and replaced it myself for about $175.

Washer won't drain - completely.


I have been having the exact same problem in a top load Kenmore 80, starting about a year ago when I replaced the pump because the old one, (30 years old), finally seized it's bearings.

The new pump design has some rough edges near the water exit port and lint slowly collects there until it stops it from draining properly. Since the lint clumps do move around a bit, when the problem first starts occurring it is an intermittent problem, but as more lint accumulates it gets worse and worse.

The old pump couldn't be taken apart, (and never need to be taken apart), but the new one can be disassembled rather easily and when the lint clumps are removed everything works great for another month or two.

The pump is the so called direct replacement from Sears, for the washing machine that they sell, but obviously is not well suited for machines like mine that do not have lint filters.

I suspect they want to render my machine obsolete so that I buy a new one, after all they don't make much money selling 1 washer every 30+ years, especially if it rarely needs service. Why else would they sell pumps that don't work in place of pumps that worked well and lasted over 20 years.

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
