Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Water runs into drum when washer is off

The drum fills with water when the unit is not running. I assume there is a leaking valve or bad switch in the water supply system, but am unsure where to start. I have to turn the water supply off to keep from having water leak out when it's not being used.

You only have to change the inlet valve, can fit it yourself. The valve is at where the water comes in from the faucet at the wall. Surely you can do it yourself. While you are at it make sure to clean out the fine mesh at the hose and machine with a toothbrush. Good luck.

Overflows with water when filling


It sounds like your fill selector is bad this is the switch that you select small med or large loads. There is a rubber vacume line that runs from it to your washer drum as water fills it puts pressure thru the line to the switch when it reaches the pressure set (small med lrg load setting) on the switch it kicks the water valve off. The line may have a leak or the switc is bad. You can ck the switch by hooking a line to it and blowing air into it with your mouth you should hear and feel a click. Sometimes it will fix its self when you push and pull air out of the switch. If not replace it. good luck

Drum fills with water when not in use


It sounds as though you have a fill valve that is leaking. There are 3 valves on the fill unit, 1 for hot water, 1 for cold water and 1 mix. Either the hot or cold valve in the mixing unit is leaking.
You can take a look at item 39 below, it is the water valve unit.
fd13a43.gif There could be a piece of rust scale or dirt under the valve seat that is causing the leak or it is just worn out.
Good luck, let me know if I can do anything further.

Hi, If you are getting water in the washer without it running, the inlet mixer valve is going bad. When you run a load, does it finish spinning and all the water is out? I hope this helps you. It is not an expensing repair. I can walk you through the repair if you would like.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks
Vic

Washer won't stop filling


if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve

Water keeps running.......


i assume washer never starts running if not suspect water level switch or connection hose also be sure small hose to switch is not plugged or mashed flat even a small hole in hose may cause it not to get pressure to tell switch drum is full ..if washer does start running suspect bad water valve may not be shutting off

70 series Kenmore washer


POWERUP, YOUR WASHER COULD BE THE LID SWITCH OR THE COLD WATER VALVE. AT THE END OF THE WASH CYCLE, THE MOTOR WILL SPIN OUT THE WATER, BUT ONLY IF THE LID SWITCH IS ACTUATED. IF THE SWITCH IS BAD, IT WILL NOT SPIN OUT THE WATER AND THE TIMER WILL NOT ADVANCE FROM THAT POINT.
IF THE WASHER SPINS, THE NEXT STEP IS TO FILL WITH WATER FOR THE RINSE CYCLE. MOST WASHERS USE COLD WATER FOR RINSES. IF THE COLD WATER VALVE IS RESTRICTED OR FAULTY, THE WASHER WON'T FILL. IF THE WASHER WON'T FILL, THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH WON'T ACTIVATE AND THE TIMER WON'T ADVANCE TO THE NEXT STEP.

For those wondering about replacing the water inlet valve - this is a very simple undertaking.  You can find the part online for around 40 bucks.  All you have to do is unplug the washer, detach the hot and cold supply hoses, remove the lid (3 torx bits on my model) unhook the water line from the old inlet valve (conveniently accessible at the top right of the unit from the rear), unhook the electrical connections (be sure to label these for later re-attachment), unscrew the 1 screw holding the valve in place, and reverse the process with the new valve.  I'm hoping this will stop water accumulating in the drum - I'll update later if it does not.
