Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Control lock light will not go off.

The control lock light is on my Whirlpool Duet GHW9150PW0 model and will not go off or allow the clothes to be washed. I have tried the pause/cancel unlock door button, unplugged the machine, and the control on and hold to start buttons. Nothing is working.

Do you have any error codes?

Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
If Pause/Cancel does not work:

  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

Whirlpool duet washer will not drain or spin, keeps making a rumbling noise, what can I do?


Hello Randall;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I have a Whirlpool Duet clothes washer. They are nice units. The information following is based on my model number GHW9150PW0.

You do not have a drain problem. I am more concerned with the rumbling noise.

1.) On both the front and back end of your drum you have a spring loaded counterweight. It is possible you have a broken spring.

Your should also check out your drive belt. At a high speed it may be slipping.

The above will effect your independent motor control located inside the washer, located inside your unit.

Control locked light is on on my whirlpool duet front load dryer and it won't do anything


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Frigidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your specific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Thanks

An F71 error indicates that the control panel (the buttons you press) is not communicating with the central control unit. Open the panel and check if there is continuity to the control panel wiring harness. Make sure that the wiring harness is fully connected to the user interface panel and the central control unit. Depending on if the drum rotates, you need to replace the user interface or the central control unit. (If the drum rotates, then it's probably the user interface. Otherwise it's the central control unit.)

Whirlpool has the parts diagram for the GHW9150P on their site in the Manuals and Literature section. The direct link to the parts list for the GHW9150PW0 is: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208180440.pdf . For other models, enter the model number and click search on this page: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView . This site has the parts for the GHW9150PW0: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5136839&diagram_id=28192106 . If you have a different model, start here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=ghw9150p .

I hope this helps.
