Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Drum does not spin fast anymore

Have a front load washer and the motor will spin it, but not fast so the clothes are all still soaked when done.  Have not noticed an error code at all. Whirlpool Duet washer spins, but clothes are not spun very dry. Can still wring out water from them by hand, and they take about 1.75 hours to dry in dryer. No error codes.

It appears your motor/motor controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I have a Fridgidaire front loader. It completes the regular wash cycle, but clothes are soaking wet- it's not doing the final fast spin. When I select the drain/spin option, it drains and eventually...


Either an off balance load (unlikely if it happens all the time), a bad door switch, or a bad motor control board. Easiest repair is to try replacing the door switch, failing that, i'd call someone in to test the speed board.

Kenmore spin cycle issues


Does it agitate and spin at the same time? the motor has a pump on one side and gear case on the other. if the gear case is seizing then the pump is lagging because the motor is loaded from a seizing gearcase and the gear case needs to be replaced.
