Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Dispenser leakage WE had a service guy come to the house - he ordered us a part - it is flat plastic and round with a rectanglar opening on top that goes down to a small round opening on the bottom - on the back is a female opening of four plastic parts - the part looks like it should fit onto the tube at the upper back middle of the dispenser drawer cabinet - however, it is too large on top and hits the top of the cabinet - it came with no directions and the manual is no help. How does if fit or where does it go?

A photograph would be helpful; but how come he didn't tell you where to fit it, and no instructions. Call him up. Your model number? Someone here will help.

SOURCE: fabric softener dispenser

If you cannot get the dispenser cap opened, submerge and soak it in some hot water. Liquid fabric softener is a type of wax that, over a period of time, will harden and clog the dispenser (as you well know by now). In many cases you do not have to take it apart if you just use the hot water method. You may have to rinse and repeat several times. Try this and let me know if you have any luck. If you require further assistance, please post back with your complete model number, so I can see what type of dispenser cap we are talking about. I hope this helps you.

I had a similar problem, but mine was with the detergent side. I removed the top of the washer and had to clean the dial that advances to let the cyle of dispensing continue. It worked, but now the machine shakes and I am told is 'unbalanced'

What causes leak between filter and filter housing on kenmore elite model 40141003010.

Hello Emile;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

I assume your changed the below component:

25693704-zbtre13rzitqz5mqvrpod1im-1-0.jpg At the ends of the plastic tubing are plastic push pull connectors. If the tubing is not properly seated and locked into the connector you will have a leak.
You may also have a crack in the connecting tubing from the water tank.
When you use your water dispenser, the water dispenser solenoid valve allows 65 PSI water pressure into the plastic tubing line, where if you have a bad connector or a crack in the line will cause a leak.
The is a plastic cap on the top of the above component.
1.) Put your fingers behind the above component where the tubing goes into the plastic mounting head. More often than not you can get bad parts
2.) Have someone push the water dispenser lever. Observe if water is running down the plastic tubing or if your fingers are getting wet.

I have a LG GRL207QVJA Fridge Freezer and have a leak behind the water dispenser. How do I remove the control panel to get behind it so that I can replace the leaking tube?

Hello Adrian;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You must be in the UK. I can not pull up any information on your unit, but I will try and walk you through this.

Hopefully the water leak is directly behind the dispenser. If you have water leaking out the bottom of the door, then you are going to have to replace the whole door. It water is leaking out of the bottom of the door then the insulation in the door is saturated. Over time the water in the door will freeze and crack you door liner open. There is no way to dry the insulation out. So, lets say this is not the case.

You either have a contact pad or a paddle arm in your dispenser housing. You may have a plastic curved piece at the top of the dispenser housing. It is held in by plastic clips. Squeeze this on both sides to release.

Up plug the refrigerator. Their are electrical components behind this housing. On the bottom of the housing frame are 2 small slots. With a flat head screw driver, pop the bottom of the housing out. On the sides and top of the frame are plastic clips. Push in on the sides of the frame to release. If you have a control board on the top back of the frame - remove the connectors. They are idiot proof. Each connector is designed to only fit a special plug. Set the frame assembly aside. You may have to remove a control board fixed to the housing, A contact switch housing and the housing itself. There are screws that go around the housing frame for removal.

On the bottom of the door there is a spring and a tubing connector. Push in on the end of the connector to release the tubing. You may have to remove a black locking ring on the connector first.

The tubing assembly you are replacing is available as a part.

Here is the hard part. Using a good adhesive tape, tape the top end of the new tubing to the bottom of the old tubing. Feed the tubing up from the bottom.

If you do not have slots on the bottom of the frame, you must push inward on the frame to release the frame from it plastic retaining clips.

I have an Admiral side by side fridge freezer model number GC2027HXKW and the water dispenser is not working. The ice is still being made but I cannot get any water to come out

Hello Rosemary:

Are you good with a multi-meter and tools?

You either have a bad contact switch or the mounting pins holding the switch are broken. This switch is behind the dispenser cover. On the bottom of the cover there are two slots for a flat head screw driver to pop the cover off. There are several plastic tabs on the cover sides and top that you must be careful not to break. If you have a plastic round piece where the water dispenses you will have to remove this. Squeeze at the top and the piece. There are tabs that will release. After you have removed the cover there is a touch pad control board - inspect for burn marks. You will need a small screw driver to pry the electrical connector free. Set the cover assembly aside. You will see a green control board. Ground yourself by touching something metal. Static will knock out a control board.
There are several screws holding the board. Remove the board. Know you can see these small contact switches. One on the left side for the ice dispenser and one on the left for the water dispenser. Inspect the housing upon which they are mounted on for broken pins. The contact switch easily slides off these pins.
So, either the control board, the contact switch or it's housing is broken.

Or, you have a bad water solenoid valve. This is located in the back lower left hand corner of your refrigerator. You need to un plug your refrigerator. Pull it out far enough were you can remove the bottom cover. There are 2 solenoid valves. The solenoid valve with the water line running up the back of your refrigerator is the ice maker solenoid, the other is your water dispenser valve. You need to take the wire connectors off the valve. Using a multi-meter check for continunity.
I am sorry I am not their to repair your unit,

Remove dispenser cover

Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

I am trying to open the outer casing of the vacuum

There is a push in type flat plastic switch trim cover over the metal housing surrounding the switch.. You must unplug the cord, gently pry around the trim cover and you will find a screw, an irregular one underneath holding the switch in place. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN when reinstalling this one or you will crack the switch.

Once removed the rear housing will come off. Then you will see several new philips round head screws holding the front housing onto the vac.With all screws removed the housing should open easily but there may be dirty film inside holding the halves together. The fan shaft will unscrew revealing the fan, a spacer behind and perhaps two different spacer washers. Install the new fan hand tight, washers and spacers in same order...

Have a intermittent leak in the soap dispensing area in top left area above the front loader sears kenmore # 417.29052991. looking for service manual to guide me on getting into that area for repairing.

You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.,wbwdbgswgksbgfwxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxwtwtqtfwk/1/1303472/5961857/image45924img-or.jpg

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Front loading washing machine is having leakage problem

You need to work out where the water is coming from, either the front, back left or right hand side to give you an idea what/where to look.
Front - Open the door and check the door seal (usually grey rubber round the door) look for splits, chaffing, damage.

Rear - check the connection to the pump, there will be a (Black) rubber hose from the drum housing about 12-18"long, check for splits, connection etc.
Check and remove the pump itself, Isolate the electricity, to remove - disconnect the outlet hose from below the sink or upstand, lower the outlet hose to the floor and syphon off the water into a bowl from the machine, there will be some even if the machine appears empty. disconnect the plug on the pump (2 wires), disconnect the hoses from the pump (2 off) and check inside the hoses, bra wires, socks etc. look inside the pump for foreign objects, the pump can be wasily split open via 3 screws normally, refit in reverse order.

Top - remove the top cover usually 2 screws at back or side and will slide slightly to remove, check hoses to drawer and the hose below drawer to top of the drum housing, check the inlet solenoids at the back (where the water hoses connect).

hope this helps
