Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Spin cycle If I have one to two items in the machine on drain/spin or rinse/spin my clothes always come out sopping wet. Other cycles seem to be fine. I've had my machine for about 3 years.

The machine has sensors within it that detect off balance loads, very possible that the 1 or 2 items are not enough to correctly balance themselves, so the machine will never achieve full speed spin.

Hi can you tell me which programme is the short wash and spin please


I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.

It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.

When the wash is done the clothes are sopping wet. I tried putting fewer clothes in and they are still very wet. Checked the drain hose for a kink and it seems to be fine.


motor coupler-to test restart the washer in it's spin cycle, let the washing machine run for one minute, then open the lid and check to see if the tub is spinning. if it's spinning the coupler is fine. if it is not then the coupler needs to be replaced, can be purchased at any appliance parts store. good luck!

Front loading washer - water is not spinning out, clothes are sopping wet


Hi- Depending on the model the drain pump filter may be clogged; sometimes the drain pump impellers get damaged as well and do not pump out the water efficiently. If it seems to be coming up to full spin speed it is likely an issue with the pump. I'd run a Rinse cycle without any clothes in it and see if all the water drains out. The washer will not got up to full spin if it senses that there is too much water in the clothes (too heavy) to prevent damage to the machine. Probably best to get a Tech to come out an look at it. Good luck.

just add another drain and spin cycle and start it up again with the completion of the first cycle. Washing some items like sleeping bags takes forever because they are so darned absorbent and hold more water than a tiger's sieve of a bladder. Another drain and spin cycle should solve the problem.

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Try this: remove the front lower acces panel(below the door going acroos the lower portion of the washer)
by removeing the attaching screws and pull off, then inside you will see a cylinder shaped unit with a cap with a twist handle on it,this is the filter pump, unscrew the cap to remove the trap and clean out completely, there will be some water in it when you open it so have a towel ready to sop up the water,reassemble everything and try a load of clothes, this will fix your problem. Good luck !

Water not draining out w/ spin cycle


sounds like water may be going out but no spin in last cycle lean washer back and ck underneath for oil leak on top off transmission is a silver colored disk shaped object this is part of clutch if there appears to be a lot of oil on it good chance there is oil on clutch also causing it not yo spin..also ck to see if basket spins after short pause at end of rinse cycle ..start a rinse cycle at setting on timer with lid shut allow to run undisturbed ..once agitation stops in rinse timer should stop then start motor back up to drain ..there should be another short pause then washer should start spinning if does not pause suspect suspect timer if it does pause but doesn't start spinning suspect transmission..remember allow washer to advance by itself DO NOT RAISE LID TO CK..a small load of clothes will let you know if washer has spun
