SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet dispenser problem

I had the same problem my fabric softener would not dispense.Close shut-off valves and take off the water hoses off the back of the washer and look for blockage on the screen.Mine was plugged up and after cleaning it off it works like new.

SOURCE: The fabric softner isn't draining during cycle but

When cleaning the softener chamber, make sure you remove and clean the syphon tube thoroughly. This is the only chamber designed to handle liquid. Otherwise, check that you have sufficient water pressure and that the cold valve opens fully. If you dont hear a decent gush of water during the rinse cycle, it's either pressure or the valve.

SOURCE: Detergent dispenser tray not draining water after cycles

I have the same problem and sometimes water stays in the detergent tray as well. I don't have a solution other than to remove the whole tray and drain in the sink after each cycle.

SOURCE: We have a Whirlpool duet washer that doesn't finish washing

My Whirlpool Duet GHW9250ML1 also stops mid-cycle with an error code F02 leaving water standing in the tub. I press cancel twice which clears the error code F02. Then I press the start button and wait a few seconds for the door to lock again. Then the cycle actually finishes. I have to do this with every wash cycle now. I suspect that it is the control unit on the upper front of the cabinet that is failing and needs to be replaced.

I have a jacket that was washed & the fabric stained from the detergent


Probably oxyclean? It has bleach in it and the jacket may not have been "colorfast". Or you may have had left over bleach getting into the wash. Or a bleach dispenser leaking?

Water won't drain out from the spots where fabric softener goes


It typically has some residual water after a load. All you need to do is to remove the detergent dispenser and dump the water out. To remove the detergent dispenser, pull it out as far it will go, then look into the detergent slot. There should be a horizontal plastic tab in the back of the detergent slot. Press the left side of the plastic tab and pull the dispenser out of the machine. Then you can dump the water from the bleach and fabric softener slots. Just slide it back into the machine and your good to go. Hope this helps.

Monthly Cleaning Protocol


  1. Hello. here it is: Use only the proper amount of HE (high-efficiency) detergent in your Duet. Whirlpool has stated that using too much detergent or fabric softener in the Duet can ruin a high-speed spin bearing responsible for spinning the basket. The replacement part is approximately $600. Whirlpool also claims that using too much detergent or softener can cause fungus growth.
  2. If you have mold and mildew problems with your Duet, check the filter trap. Unplug the washer and remove the three screws in the seam between the door and the bottom panel to remove the bottom panel. The Duet drain pump has a design flaw that leaves about a cup of water in the filter trap under the tub. Clean out that filter with bleach every month or two to eliminate mold problems.
  3. Put small items in a mesh bag before washing. There is a good chance they will get lodged in the Duet's filter trap, if you don't. Check the filter trap mentioned in Step 2 monthly to make sure there aren't any small items blocking the filter.
  4. Remove your detergent dispenser every month and wash with warm water and bleach to prevent mold buildup. Remove the fungus smell from your washer with Affresh washer cleaner. Always keep the washer door open when not in use.
