Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

WHirlpool Duet Washer

Our washing machine is 3+ years old and recently the washer has on several occasions filled itself fully or partially with water when the machine was idle. The machine otherwise functions normally and these incidents occur after the machine has not been in use for several days. On one occasion, the machine failed to keep the front door locked allowing it to open with resulting water spillage with a surprise machine full of water? It's gotta be some sort of electronic malfunction I would assume to allow for random water filling when the machine is powered down and idle. Anyone have a clue? Eaily repaired?

Swede, you need to replace the water inlet valve. Part number 8181694. This is an easy fix. Just remove the 3 screws that are in back holding the top on. Slide the top back and you will see the valve. Couple of screws and a clamp and it will come right off. back.

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?

Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

Just bought a front load whirlpool wash machine. when i turn it on it locks door then unlocks door, it does this 2 to 3 times then the washer fills with some water only spins about 3 times then it waits...

This washer will stop and start a number of times during fill as it is sensing how much water it needs. Also you must hook both water line up and have both on. Also you must use HE soap and very little of it.

Washer slowly fills with water when not in use. I

I have the same problem. The only problem that I have is not knowing how much water will eventually go into the tub. It takes about 4 or 5 days to accumulate about a gallon. I called the Whirlpool service center and the woman said they recomend turning the water off after each use-I think this is ridiculous. If going away on vaca maybe. Rob

Whirlpool Duet washer fills with water by itself

sounds like a faulty water inlet valve, not seating properly after closing the valve.replacing the valve is the only solution to this problem, in the meantime you can turn off your water supply in between doing loads.

not a bad habit to get into!!!!
