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?

    Catriver, thanks for the prompt response.

    After looking at a parts list for the duet I suspected it might be the intake valve but frankly assumed I would be having troubles during operation as well.

    Anyway, my local parts guy had to order the part so I could not get to the repair for 2-3 days. I just switched it out and you were right, the repair is pretty simple even for a mechanic wannabe who knows enough to be dangerous. Mine is on a pedestal so it's tougher to get behind it but I managed. We'll see if that cures my problem.

    One comment - Whirlpool uses a Torx head screw to secure the valve to the back of the washer body. Very cute - fortunately I have a nice collection of tools as I suspect a Torx screwdriver or driver is not a common must have tool for the average Joe. What a bunch of dopes - I hate when they do stuff like that.

    Anyway thanks a million - my parts guy also concurred with your diagnosis.

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. Catriver..post back.

I am having 2 issues. Most importantly, my front load washer/dryer is skipping drying time. I typically wash the clothes then put dryer sheets in and use the dry only on low heat option. It starts...


Your two issues may be related. A combo washer / dryer uses a fine spray of cool water to condense moisture out of the air stream while drying. This water is then pumped down the drain. Cold water is also used to fill the softner dispenser. If the inlet screen on the cold water connection to the machine is restricted, those are two of several things which could show up. Turn cold water valve supplying water to machine off. Unscrew cold water fill hose from machine. Remove screen from inside machine, clean, re-install, re-attach cold water fill hose, turn cold water valve back on and see if performace improved.

I have an AEG 6955 washing maching about 14 years old. Recently the program has stopped on many occasions with code F1 usually on first fill. Other times it works OK. The manual says this is no water....


Yes changeing the valve will fix it . around £30. On one occaision only I have come across the detergent dispensor top being blocked up enough to slow down the fill. on your machine it allows 5mins if this is exceeded F1 is displayed and prog stopped.

LSR8233JQ washer water drips into tub from fill port


Yes the fill valve has been damaged by the silt. If you remove the hoses from the valve you will probably notice that there is either one or both steel screens missing from valve body. You cant remove the screens if they get clogged.

Washing Machine won't empty water during the cycle


does the timer advance by itself? if not the problem is your timer not advancing through the cycles. if timer does advance then being 14 1/2 years old it could be the motor. start the washer and mark the beggining where the timer starts. whatch it to see if it moves if not then you need to replace your timer
