Question about Whirlpool Gold Duet GHW9400P 3.8 Cu. Ft. Front-Loading Washer

Duet ht something stuck

A finishing nail (the kind with no head) was sucked out during the drain cycle and became stuck in between the drum you see (the one with the holes) and the exterior drum in the back of the machine. It is a front load washer. Is there any way to get to it and remove it. It makes a loud scraping noise during the spin cycle. As soon as I figured out what had happened I stopped the machine. It ran two spin cycles with the nail in it. Please help! My husband is not amused!

First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

My whirlpool duet sport washer often finishes it's cycle with the symbol Sd or 5d, I'm not sure which one. Any idea what that means?


Slow drain. Check your drain hose for kinks and make sure it's not partially plugged. If it is going into a pipe make sure it isn't pushed too far into it.

Gets stuck on timer and wont count down


We had a similar situation with our LG washer. It was not a timer problem.
The machine was not entering the spin cycle and was just stuck in limbo. A sensor or something was not being satisfied and allowing the progression to the next cycle. Our problem had to do with the drain line; it seemed as if it was air locked?? After lowering the drain line height (to reduce the head pressure), and manually draining some water out of the drainage cap (where the strainer is located) onto the floor, the sensor became satisfied and the machine completed its cycles properly.

What told me that it was not a timer issue was the fact that on different wash settings (normal, heavy, quick cycle), the machine timer would get stuck at different countdown points (22mins, 12mins, etc.).

Nail in washer


Hi I had the same problem, but not a nail a bra under wire, they have a wire that is sown in under the cup these often work loose and slip through the holes in the drum,in my case it was catching on the heating element if not removed it would catch the element and even damage it or at best my a bad noise. To get at it i just undid the heater element pulled it out from the drum and this then gave me good access to the drum housing so i was able to get at the wire. You must make sure you unplug the washer from the electrics DO NOT work on any appliance when it is connected to the mains. All washers have an heater at the bottom of the drum.If you are handy it will not take you more than an hour to do this job.Good luck.

Something stuck in drum, spinning cycle loud hammering/clacking sound


hi there,

sounds like you may have something caught between the tumbler and the cabinet. since the drum has holes in it, can you have a look if you can see anything that's come of clothing, like a bra wire. it's usually something bigger.
