Question about Whirlpool Gold Duet GHW9400P 3.8 Cu. Ft. Front-Loading Washer

1 Answer

Streaks in towels/sheets

I have problems with towels getting streaked (almost as if bleached) in my washer. I noticed that one of the most recent ones was against the window of the washer when I took it out. Sometimes sheets get streaks or blobs where the color is lighter as well. I use bleach on all white loads but never on colors. Any ideas, please? Thank you.

    I thought the same thing--so I went for months without using any bleach. Still got the streaks. My drum is stainless steel. I used Costco detergent (HE approved liquid) for a long time. Now switched to one that is supposed to be easier on the environment called Ecos (still from Costco). It may be just my imagination, but the problem seems worse. I can certainly believe that the bleach is part of the problem, but there may be more. Any more ideas, please? Thank you.

From experience, Bleach will stay in the machine and bleach load after load (esp with an enamel or poly drum). Normally have to run a HOT empty cycle to clean it out.

Brown streaks on white cloths?


Hi Ralph,
It may be important to have an idea as to what caused the stain/discoloration. Carbona (http://www.carbona.com/home.php) has different products specific to the various reasons for the problem. You may be able to use bleach, depending on the fabric affected. Some white material turn yellow with bleach
Hope this helps ~ Good luck!

Vertical streaks


Or OPC is damaged, or there's something on it. If you want to see yourself DO NOT TOUCH ROLLER. To move it, try to push the gear. You need some power to do that. Stains can be removed from OPC with paper towel and isopropanol.

GWL10 leaving dark streaks on my cold water whites.


Hi Barla 2,Just read your posting.Now are the dark streaks like an oily substance?Is you machine leaking or has become noisier on the spin cycle?The only place this machine will get oil into the water is from the main bearings.But this is only the case if your main seal is faulty.Please reply with the additional information and I can help you rectify this problem.

Leaves streaks vertically on paper changed cartridge still there. 2600n printer


when you open the front of the print you will see the streaks on the black transfer sheet.

Close the front door half way or until all the cartridge doors open.
You will see the same streaks on the problem cartridge(s) as on the transfer sheet.

Change that particular cartridge, let the printer recalibrate, and presto streaks are gone.

What actually will happen over time is the stainless steel retianing hub and nut diseningrate and the tub becomes loose. Then the spin cycle will destroy the top balancing ring. When this happens - the washer is junk - not worth repairing.
Before that thou - other mechanical problems can happen, like u-joint breakage. These washers are absolute junk.
