Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

3 Answers

Leaking... my duet washer has been leaking from the front lining between the drum and the door. there is an opening in it near the top (i assume where water/soap jets out during runing??)...and it's coming from that area. it does not happen consistantly and the soap cups have been drained of excess water after each run. ...i opened the washer today and the drum must have been pretty full of water (no laundry in it)..because it flooded the room! ..i ran a "drain" cycle as there was a thin, steady leak of water coming from that are, then turned off the hoses (water supply) that it doesn't continue overnight. ..not sure why this is happening, if there is a damaged seal or may be more exterior prob. and, as i said, it does not happen consistantly. ...any help would be appreciated.

Re: leaking...

Normally you shut off the wall valve when you are thru with your washing. If there is a leak in the front area (important: first take the plug off the wall) open up the top of the machine and check whether the three rubber tubes are in place at the soap dispenser - one of them may have come off. Refit or replace if rubber tube is damaged; would be good to check all the tubes. Another thing would be to check that your soap dispenser is not clogged. :)

My whirlpool duet sport washer is leaking in the front underneath, not from the door. Does not do it when it drains. What do I do?

Hello Casey,
Its possible that the washer could be leaking from the door seal yet ya don't see it coming from the door. The way to check if its the door seal remove the lower panel and see if the concrete counterweight that's on the front of the drum...if ya see water dripping from that counterweight,its from the door seal.
If the door seal is not leaking ya would need to look at the pump and hoses on the tub while it was in wash mode to see whats leaking.

Duet front load - water fills while door is open!

This is a leaking solonoid valve.
The valves are located just inside the machine where the water supply hoses attach.
  • Remove the power plug
  • Undo the top lid of the washer
  • The valves will have some internal pipes clamped on their outlets. Remove the pipes.
  • Dry the valve outlets with tissue.
  • Turn on the water supply to the washer (if it was off)
  • Watch the open valve outlets for seepage.

There may be between 1 and 3 valves depending on the model.
You should be able to replace the leaking valve quite easily.

sounds like you have a faulty water valve that does not close when the power is not supplied to the machine.or a problem with the cotrol board supplying power to the valve when the unit is not in use

Changing the bellow on a duet

Tilt the machine back to create more space between the front on the door and the outer drum. Remove the screws for the kickplate and remove the kickplate for easier access. Open the door and remove the spring clamp holding the bellows to the door opening lip. Push the bellows into the drum to get access to the outside/ rear of the bellows (where it connects to the drum). There you will find another clamp which you loosen/ remove with a socket. Some models have an overfill tube on the top of the bellows (remove it from the bellows). At this point you should be able to completely remove the bellows.

Align the new bellows to the outer tub. Attach and tighten the inner clamp (be careful not to over tighten and periodically check the bellows and clamp placement as you're tightening to make sure it doesn't slip off). Attach the overfill tube (if equipped). Lay the machine back to level and install the front of the bellows to the door opening lip. Re-install the spring clamp by starting at the top and working your way down both sides (may be easier with 2 pairs of hands). Be careful not to overstretch the spring on the clamp.

Test with a quick fill and let it agitate for a few minutes to ensure there are no leaks (be ready to hit cancel and have a few towels just in case it leaks). Re-install the kickplate, make sure machine is still leveled correctly by trying to rock it diagonally from the top.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Good luck!

firstly you will need to unplug the machine, then remove the lid, open the door and remove the metal retaining band from around the lip of the door seal (may need a small flat screwdriver to lift it up).
once the retainer is off the door seal should pull away from the front lip, this can then be folded inside the machine and out of the way for the next bit.
next you will need to locate the doorseal retainer on the inside of the machine may need a 7mm socket and small ratchet or a small philips screwdriver for this one, this one only needs to be loosened enough so that the doorseal will pull away from the drum.

refitting is pretty much the reverse of removal.

you MUST make sure the seal is on the drum lip corrrectly before refitting the retaining band or it will leak.

you MUST also make sure the drain holes are lined up with the ones on the drum.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply, thanks kj

Water leaking from my whirlpool frontload washer

open the door and check between the drum and door frame. There is a large rubber bladder completely surrounding the drum. Pushing the drum further back into the machine will let you see the entire thing and unfold it. These often get small laundry like socks stuck there as well as sharp objects like nails. You may have a tear in it which will leak like that. Replacement parts run about $70.00.
