Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Duet ok, as a test, I put on the rinse and spin cycle. It does exactly what you said about the door lock/unlock, and it puts the water in, the drum rotates both directions. After about 5mins the pump comes on and runs continuously. With about 6-8 minutes left on the cycle, I get a f02 error. Should the pump run continuously ? and should it not spin at high speed ? Thanks, Scott

    during the rinse cycle there is approx. 3-4 inches of water in the tub when the pump kicks on, it pumps water out but pump never shuts off. It runs until f02 comes up. I took cover off housing while pump was running and the impeller is definitly moving freely. How does the pump know to turn off ? Its almost like it is not getting the signal to shut off.

Yes it should run continuosly,(at least untill the water level drops.) a more common instance withthis machine is that the drain line is blocked/restricted, or somethingis ninthe pump housing. it is even possible hat the pump impeller has dislodged from the housing and although it sounds as if its "pumping" its moving no water..usually in htis case your able to open the filter assembly and "pushback on hte impeller(normal impeller will not ,ove back" however if it was dislodged it will have foward play.i would even blow out the drain hose form the pump to the drain standpipe, just in case.
F02 is def a long pump out time and no ther ewill be no high speed spin with water in unit(or if it thinks thers water in unit)

Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?


Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

The door wont open . I have tried to put it on for a cycle and you can here the the water for around 5 seconds then it stops and does nothing.


Check and make sure your pump or filter is not clogged, then next I would suspect you have a faulty door lock mechanism
More common issues with the door lock.
Is water hooked up to the washer?

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
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. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
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.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!

Whirlpool Fron Load washer. Can not unlock door.


There is a manual way to unlock door. I copyed this from the tech sheet.
Manually Unlocking the
Door Lock System
1. Unplug the power cord from
the outlet.
2. Remove the lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of
the front and locate the bottom
of the door switch/lock unit.
4. Located on the bottom of the
door switch/lock unit is a
tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about
a ¼” or until a click is heard.
6. The door may be opened.

Also there is a test procedure you can run to check the door lock actuator.
DIAGNOSTIC TEST
The washer must be empty and
the control must be in the OFF
state before pressing the
touchpad sequence to start the
test.
Starting the Test Mode
 Close the door.
 Push CONTROL/ON (if present on
this model).
 Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle.
 Select NO SPIN by pressing the
SPIN SPEED touchpad.
 Push PREWASH OPTION four
times
within five seconds. (If
PREWASH OPTION is not present
on this model, press RINSE HOLD
four times within five seconds.)
C:00 will light up on the display.

Hope this helps.

Whirlpool Duet won't run


The trouble could be with the door interlock. When the clothes were jammed in the door it could have caused the door latch to put strain on the interlock.
