Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
The bleach and softener dispensers are not working. At the end of the wash the dispenser still contains the bleach and or softener.
I had just purchased a new/used HE set after having an older, standard top load washer. Because my older washer didn't have the new style water heater in it, I always had my cold water inlet valve turned at half pressure so I would get a "true" warm water wash when I selected that. Consequently, when I hooked up the new washer, I did the same thing, not realizing that the new HE washer had an internal water heater to alleviate that issue. I then had the problem of the bleach and softener dispenser still being full after a wash, time after time (except one load that I programmed for WARM/WARM). I was very aggravated, thinking I bought someone else's problem. I obviously searched the internet for possible solutions and cleaned out the dispensers and holes above the dispenser and still had the problem. I don't know why I came to the conclusion of turning the cold water valve ALL the way on, but I did. And EUREKA! Problem solved!!! And it only makes sense..............if you don't have enough water pressure coming in, it won't fill up the dispenser and it won't make the siphon action do it's job! I don't know if this is an issue with anyone but I thought I would post it................just in case!

You have to remove the compartments and clean them out,, could have lint build up blocking it
