If water is getting into washer when not in use, then I would assume that the washer outlet pipe is connected to your sink waste outlet, this being the case, then this is the cause of your problem
What is happening is the washer outlet hose is below the bottom of your sink outlet pipe, and each time you empty the sink, some dirty water is syphoning back into the washer.thus causing the smell.
The solution is to raise the washer outlet hose above the bottom of the sink and waste pipe outlet so that the water cannot drain back into the washer.
It would be a good idea to remove the pipe from the washer where it fastens to the sink waste, and clean the connection of muck etc'
Plz rate my solution.
thanks.

I have a Whirpool Duet HT and the bottom of the machine SOMETIMES leaks water from the bottom corner(same corner where the detergent is put in). Sometimes it leaks a small amount if water but sometimes it...


Common parts that leak on a front load washer:
Door boot (also know as gasket or bellow), drain pump, intake system (which is either intake valves or soap dispenser). From my experience in that order.
The door boot can be inspected from the inside although if you didn't find any holes could still be it. (so if you find a whole than it most likely it, but if you didn't find holes it does NOT rule it out since it has to be inspected properly from the inside.

Whirlpool duet ht will not agitate or spin


Front load washers don't "agitate". Did you mean it doesn't tumble during the wash cycle? I need more information. Complete model # and a more detailed description of the issue.

Whirlpool Duet Sport Model WFW8300SW0 basket won't


The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: - Duet HT washer - F01, F03, F06, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, F32, F35, F42, F61, F62, F63, F64, F65, F70, F71, and F99

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.

I would first replace the door latch/lock assembly, a number of users have and it fixed the F-11 error code completely. Its the cheapest part for this problem.

Hope helps.

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

Front load washer fills up with water


Jamesbestor,

The water fill selenoid had junk in it holding the valve open or the seat in the valve is damaged.
Turn off the power and water, remove two screws on the back of the machine and remove the lid.
On the back left top corner are the water fill selenoids. Remove these and disassemble by undoing the 6 or 8 screws ( depending upon model ) holding the unit together. Clean and reassemble, it should take care of the problem. If not, replace the selenoid.
