Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

It takes several cycles to dry my clothes.

I have vacuumed the dryer hose and the escape hose to the outside of the house and I still need to use 2 to 3 full cycles to dry my clothes.

    Remove the dryer vent hose form the back of the dryer and try to dry a load. If the results are the same, you have a clog INSIDE your dryer in the blower fan housing. You will need to access the blower fan housing and vacuum out any accumulations of lint. If the dryer does better with the hose removed, you may STILL have a clog in the vent line somewhere. Did you inspect the entire run? How long is the vent hose from the dryer to where it exits your home? How many bends are in the vent line? Does the vent line exit through a crawl space or attic? Do you properly sort your clothes when drying? I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, just need some answers to better assist you. Please provide some answers to some of these questions and let me know.

Ok Is this gas or electric? If it is gas then you may be haveing a problem with your ignitor coils. take the bottom panel off with a putty knife there should be 2 clips you can see them with a flash light push the putty knife in and pop the panel out. watch the ignition. if the units ignitor glows read and missfires. You have bad coils. replace the solinoids this shouild solve the problem.
But if by removing the vent from the wall and you run a load and it runs fine then you know you still have a problem in your wall.

Hirundo washer/dryer fills with water during the dry cycle so clothes come out hot and soaked what could be the cause?


Moister in the dryer:

This means that the moist air is not escaping correctly and that is why it is taking so long to dry your clothes - if they dry at all.
a good start at cleaning out lint blocked areas, I suggest go to the back of the dryer and take off the vent pipe or hose and check things out with a flashlight. Clean out all the lint and dust you can, even use a vacuum cleaner on it. Make sure the vent pipe is completely clear of any obstructions.Non-rigid ventshas much worse air flow than smooth piping, so you might want to upgrade tosmooth piping.
Once you have all the lint and dust cleaned out of the dryer, go to where the dryer vents outside. Again, clean the area thoroughly. There is usually a trap door that opens when the dryer air is on and closes when it is not operating. It should be completely clear of lint and opening smoothly.
Also, look into the exhaust area on the dryer carefully to see if there is a hole or gap in the dryer's internal air ducting. Without the vent pipe connected and with no clothes in the dryer, start it and let if run for a few seconds and make sure there is strong air flow from the exhaust port. You should feel it strongly on your hand.
Re-connect the vent pipe and start the dryer again. Feel all around the bottom to see if any air is blowing out from under the bottom. This would indicate there is a break or gap in the dryer's internal ducting. If you do feel air, you will need to call a service technician to see if it can be repaired. If your dryer is very old, there could be a rust hole in the duct.
In conclusion Cause ·Poor venting is a common reason why water might leak into a clothes dryer. Since the dryer works to expel moisture, it is important that the dryer's vents are properly installed so that the humidity can escape.
Effect ·If the humidity in the dryer is trapped, it will eventually turn to water. This will lead to poor drying results or longer drying times, depending on the amount of leakage.
Prevention/Solution ·Faulty dryer venting can be prevented by making sure that the humidity is directed outdoors. Also, vents should be cleaned of lint and other debris before each load so that water can readily escape. Taking these precautions can ensure that the moisture will meet dry, open air.

Why Would Find Water in My Dryer eHow

Supra washer/dryer combo leaking significantly


In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

My dryer doesn't completely dry my clothes. Usually I have to run almost 2 cycles to get my clothes dry.


check your vents,, inside the house and outside,, check to make sure the vent hose is not kinked,, if all is good make sure the unit is blowing out air good, if so then you may have a thermostat or heating element going out,,, i have seen alot of vents on the outside get wet and clog up

Dryer not drying cloths even though it does the full cycle? hotpoint wd63


There are several reasons for this to happen.
  1. Heater element faulty.
  2. Thermostat faulty.
  3. Heater relay faulty.
  4. Blocked condenser.
  5. No cold water going in on drying cycle.
You really need a meter to test the components with, to get the bottom of the problem.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

If there is no heat at all then the heater or the temp sensor or the thermal fuses are defective and need replacing.

Also check that the lint filter is clear of debris and lint. Rinse it if necessary in some mild washing up liquid in warm water and dry thoroughly. Check that the air outlet hose is clear if you have one fitted. Check that the condenser is empty of water and the case is free from dust and lint. Vacuum / brush or wash the outside of the collector in washing up liquid and warm water and dry.

My whirpool dryer (Duet) seems to always take (2) cycles to dry...After the first cycle the clothes are still very damp.


Your dryer may be pushed too far back , causing the vent hose to kink , behind the dryer . Also , check the outside vent airflow , and check the lint screen holder , for any peeled off lint , which could also be blocking the outside air flow .

Wash machine sometimes gets stuck on rinse cycle & dryer not dry


Sounds like the drain hose for the washer is too far down in the stand pipe at the wall causing a siphon effect, try raising drain hose a little. The dryer sounds like the vent line from back of dryer too wall is pinched causing an air flow obstruction. Hope this helps.
