Whirlpool washer model wfw9150ww01 won't dispense bleach

My guess is that the valve that pushes water into the bleach compartment has stopped working. It should be accessable from the top. I have some maytags similar to your machine that i have to remove the front panel to remove a couple screws to lift the top like a car hood. Not sure about your machine though.

I have had two bleach dispenser valves fail in the past two years on my Neptune TL washer. They simply won't dispense the bleach from the reservoir. Is there any underlying problem that may cause...

Maybe the water channel leading to the dispenser valve is not aligned......lid bowed? See Pic

""I have had two bleach dispenser valves fail in the past two years on my Neptune TL washer. ""

Describe fail......did you replace the valves or a repair service?

If you did the work what troubleshooting did you do on the valves? Did you check for 120VAC applied to the valve in Service Mode? Maybe the relay that applies 120VAC to the valve is not functioning or working intermittently........see pic of schematic of Control Board K3 is the Bleach Dispenser relay that applies 120VAC to that dispenser valve. Is it working 100% of the time? If not it may be a Control Board or connector issue ......but you need to troubleshoot.

Did you power up your old dispenser valves with a 120VAC cheater cord on the work bench to verify operation Open/Close?

I'm an owner not a appliance repair tech but have a electronics technical background.

Fabric softener does not despence


You'll need to clean the dispenser by removing it. Use white vinegar and spray then spray the dispenser & agitator with it too. Use hot water after a minute and vinegar will wash out the softener. Try using a soft brush to clean it. Try running a cycle with hot water and bleach (use no soap). Avoid using large amount of soap. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
