Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Adds strait HOT water to a cold cycle.

I know it is supposed to raise the water temp. to help the detergent work better, but I don't want strait hot water on my dark or delicate clothes. It really malfunctions at times and the whole wash is steaming! I've tried shutting off the hot water to the washer, then I get NO water. The only solution is to shut it off and start over again but if Im not right there it happens again, too late! My question is: can the sensor for the water temp malfunction? and if so can it be checked? The repairman has been here, but of course it doesnt do it while hes here. I have an extended warranty{my washer is 5 years old} please let me know. thanks.

I own the Whirlpool duet set with the front loading washer. The clothes comeout with a bad smell. I was told that the washer probably needed to be cleaned. How is this done, and what makes it happen?


Using the wrong kind of detergent in your fancy front loader is a great way to grunge up your washer and impart some oder onto your clothes. And it accelerates the mechanical deterioration of your washer.
2. Using too much fabric softener and/or detergent.
Liquid fabric softener does not break down very well in cold water and the residue collects on the outer tub and basket along with the lint left from the wash. We professionals refer to this accumulated as grunge. Once formed, this grunge collects ever more additional soap, dirt, grease, human waste, mites, , parasites... and then some really bad stuff.
As it turns out, this grunge makes a perfect substrate for microbial life forms. Over some time- not very much time in warmer climates- those little bacterial colonies build up lots of microbial sewage, just like we do until one day you open the door to the washer
Using too much fabric softener will waterproof your clothes. How clean do you think your clothes will get if they repel water inside the washing machine?
3. Doing all your wash loads in cold water only.
Detergents don't dissolve as well in cold water. As a result, cold water washes leave behind more grunge. So... do an occasional wash in hot water. OK, maybe more than occasional. Like, I hope you at least wash your skivvies in hot water.
4. Leaving clothes in the washer at the end of the cycle.
Front loaders don't have as much access to open air as top load machines. Consequently, leaving clothes in the washer for more than eight hours will increase mold and mildew build up.
1. Add one additional gallon of hot water to the unit before sending it into a hot wash. This will raise the water level high enough to remove the Grunge Hiding Behind the Basket
2. Same as 1 but with bleach added to all dispensers. Clean the fabric softener cup with a rag first (bleach will not break up fabric softener since it is introduced in the rinse cycle with the fabric softener).
3. Same as1 and 2 but with a cap full of pine cleaner added to the wash water (NOT the dispenser). Add some old rags (they don`t need to be dirty) and select the extra rinse cycle. The wash action will help remove the accumulated grunge from the components
Once again, make sure you're only using high efficiency (HE) detergents in your front loader.

Cold wash/rinse selected, but only hot water is used


I have a Sears front load washer and I also noticed that on a cold wash/cold rinse cycle the machine was drawing hot water.

Laundry detergents require water to be at a certain temperature to aid in disolve. The machine adds sufficient hot water, regardless of the cycle, until that temp is reached. If I was to use a cold water detergent the machine, because it has no way of knowing which detergent I'm using, will still add hot water until that minimum temp is released. I don't know if there are machines available which include detergent type as an option?

Whirlpool washing machine...only uses hot water


Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".

Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.

1994 Kenmore 90 series washer smells musty


If you do not use a hot water cycle every so often it can contribute to the build up of mold or mildew inside the washer drain lines, pump and tub.. This is a common problem for those that only use cold water cycles. The detergent alone sometimes is not enough to kill bacteria. You also need the heat from hot water. I would recommend that you run a cleaning cycle on the hottest setting you have about once per week as a preventive measure. Add some bleach to the water to kill any existing bacteria. NOTE: This may take a couple of wash loads before you notice a difference. If you wish to conserve by not wasting water and energy by running an empty wash tub every week, switch to washing your whites in hot water with a little bleach to keep them brighter. This will kill bacteria in the washer in the process. I hope this helps you.

You most likely have a smart water temp sensor on your machine. It makes sure you have the proper water temp to dissolve your detergent. Even when set to cold, it will add some hot water. It sounds like your machine is working properly. If you feel you are haveing a problem check the water temperatures in your owners manual and then check them with a thermomater in the washer. If they are not correct you may have a bad temperature sensor. Good Luck and I hope this helped. Mca0824@aol.com

How to drain liquid chlorine?


Get as much as you can out with a towel, then flush the rest with cold water. Just pour it in and dry it out with a towel until you are able to pour water in it and it go out the dispenser like normal. After you have gotten the dispenser cleaed out you will need to get the detergent out of the machine before using it. Start a cycle with cold water. Let it start washing, when you see suds forming pour in a little vegetable cooking oil. This will kill the suds. Keep doing this through the cycle. After the suds are gone and the cycle is done, run it through another cycle with hot water. If you have no suds you are done. If It still suds up by the end of that cycle, run the cold wash and vegetable oil again.

You should be ok by running one cold and one hot, just watch it and add a little oil to kill the suds.

The cooking oil trick works with dishwashers too if you ever put the wrong detergent in them.

Please reply if you need any more help.
