Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

An open coat hanger went through a hole in the drum

We have a frontloading Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine. We washed a "cathouse" that my daughter made and didn't realize there was coat hanger wire that helped to support the roof. After washing, we found one piece of coat hanger halfway lodged through a hole in the drum. After further investigation, we found another whole piece of coathanger wire that is laying under the drum. We have attempted to get it back through a hole without much success. Any suggestions?

    Thanks. Unplug the unit was a great thought that we didn't do. We ended up drilling one of the holes in the basket a tiny bit bigger and managed to pull up the hanger through that hole. Thanks for your ideas.

My Whirlpool Duet Sport Frontloading Washing Machine is spilling out water from the place where you put in the detergent. What could be the cause and how do I fix it?


it is a drain blockage. in the back of the washer on the top are 3 bolts they are size 1/4 in. Remove them. slide of the cover off. reach down over the drum and find the drain hose. pull it out and find the blockage. replace the hose and it should be fine.

Machine does not clean clothes the machine seems to work ok but the washing feels stiff and there is sedment on the washing the machine is a hotpoint ultima 18 months old.


Try cleaning out the dirty water pipe. Mine was completely blocked up with scale and soap powder. We used a coat hanger and went from the out side as well. The water now pumps out completely without leaving any left under the drum

Water leaking from my whirlpool frontload washer


open the door and check between the drum and door frame. There is a large rubber bladder completely surrounding the drum. Pushing the drum further back into the machine will let you see the entire thing and unfold it. These often get small laundry like socks stuck there as well as sharp objects like nails. You may have a tear in it which will leak like that. Replacement parts run about $70.00.
