Remove the soap dispenser check drain hole for foreign object. I've seen socks, toys, and those new soap pod casings cause the same symptom. Try to spin your basket buy hand. It should spin freely and coast to a stop with no noise. If you hear scraping or if it comes to a sudden stop, there is likey a sock or the like between the basket and tub. Use a flashlight to locate by shining it at the holes in basket. If it's there you will likely see it. Try to drag it out of there with straightened hanger or perhaps it's close enough to grab with needlenose pliers. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Washer making noise in spin cycle

Is this unit new? I had a frigidaire that would really get to going on the spin cycle. Got the clothes really dry and sounded like a jet engine if no clothes were in it. Is it a whisling sound or screeching sound...The sound could be coming from the water pump. It may have something in it that is dragging. Some you can take the bottom off of and clean them out..

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet GHW9100L pours water out of the soap dispenser dra

probable cause is there is an article of clothing that is stuck between the outer and inner tubs, in the area where the dispenser water and detergent enter the machine. you can run your hand around the rubber boot and you might be able to remove the article, it will be in the upper left part of the machine. if nothing can be found than you have a plugged up dispenser hose.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Washer Trouble Code F25

TOP SOLUTION
The thing is most people have never used a washing machine before, its alright. If you like calling Whirlpool they will track your phone number and in the future they know you like to buy repair parts. The front load washer for the home is a new concept especially with steam etc. use patience and common sense. no washer can really wash 15 pairs of jeans and spin 150 miles an hour several times a week in this you must see the problem . so use common sense when filling the drum and do not use the highest spin cycle unless you are washing very light items. to fix f25 (happened to me after 1 month and I purchased a floor model) the fix is easy and does not involve a circuit board even though there are many buttons that light up. A repair man would love to order you any part you want plus markup, suggest the balancing mechanism and you will have made a new friend. give it up if you know you had to push on the door , maybe take a running jump to get it to close.you cannot wash a months worth of clothes all at once 1. unplug unit 2. remove 2 to 3 screws from bottom of front panel 3. next gently check connections, some may need tightening but again be patient and use appropriate pliers but mainly use gentle pressure 4.many will discover how simple it would be to work on the washer especially if you opted for the pedestals (worth every penny) 5. notice the drain trap cleaning access white and circular and turns, with a towel underneath open and clean trap at least once a year ...before replacing panel do a test rinse and spin. you will notice that once the f25 code appears there is no resistance to turning the drum this only helps to protect certain parts, once the appropriate wire is no longer loose this resistance is no longer...test but still be patient wait while the machine goes through the motions. don't start pushing every button. drum starts turning properly then replace panel. there is taped to the panel a manual with a breakdown of all the error codes. remember this is a very expensive piece of merchandise and will do for you what dry cleaners would have done for you (yes it has a wash by hand button and the machine will not spin to remove water in clothes on this selection, it will only turn to agitate , just remove clothes, hand wring out into the drum then hang or place in a plastic bag and refrigerate for a day or so until you can hang items)** I was able to my surprise wash a 110 year old linen tablecloth using this feature (soak items that require special stain removers and rinse before putting them in this machine. this machine is fantastic BUT be patient, and do not overload and do not spin everything on the highest setting. In being patient I was able to wash a king size comforter and the slip covers of a 90" sofa (not together) the machine can do this, not every day, but choose the correct setting such as bulky or heavy duty and select appropriate settings. I know for the money one should not have to take off the front panel but remember the machine weighs 200 pounds and coming from whatever factory one can only imagine what happens to machines that are abused in transportation. The key is to be patient and use common sense, if waiting on the machine to finish or the door to unlock ( the reason for the multiple locking steps is to allow those who have decided to get into the machine the opportunity to get out) then I will use the dreaded word of multitask otherwise enjoy the experience. I know I love mine!!!

Water is leaking out the soap dispenser.


Remove the soap dispenser and clean it throughly, next check the tube from dispenser to the tub to be sure it is clear of blockage. Run the washer with hot water to clear any residual buildup that may be left in it.

The water runs up out of the soap dispenser and not in the drum


Try removing the dispenser drawer and with the door open pour some water into the dispenser housing and see if it runs into the drum, if it DOES run into the drum the you have a dispenser housing issue.if it DOES NOT run it to the drum their is a plastic pipe that runs from the dispenser housing to the rubber boot that lets the water into the basket,a few times I have seen these get cloged with a item of clothing preventing water from draining into the washer Good luck

My duet front loader is not draining. Water came pouring out of the soap and fabric softener dispenser. There was not a code displayed when this happened


make sure the drawer is closed all the way , and that you don't have a build up of soap in side where the dispensor drawer slides , this could keep the water from going into the washer.

Whirpool Duet - Soap not getting into wash cycle


O.K. Is the water draining out properly? If the filter is blocked then your washing will be churning in dirty water as the machine will drain for a maximum time then rinse etc. in the used water.

Water overflowing from dispenser, no error codes


check the holes of the dispenser, could be clogged with soap and liquid detergent. check the hose where the dispenser flows to the drum, it could be clogged also. open the door, trace the dispenser hose that is attached to the drum or to the big rubber gasket at the front. check and see if there is dirt accumulation or soap clogging the hole.
