Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool front load washer model number: WFW9150WW00. We have had it for a few ears now an lik it a lot except for one issue, th front seal. Not th door seal but here the seal covers te gap beteen the tub and the door. We had to have it replaced once and it cost over $400 and it now needs it again. The seal stats to rip nd tear apart and when that hapens it starts to damag the items being washed, bestdes ucking small items like socks int the drain. Isthere a fix for this besides every couple of years having to replace the seal? Why does it not last longer?

SOURCE: Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer

most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959KL1 ruins clothes

I can assure you this IS a common problem. I can't tell you how many customers I have had in the past that complained about their Calypso's leaving the same marks on their clothing. The problem occurs because of the suction on the clothes as the washer extracts water from them during the final nunator cycle. The nunator is the wash plate that the clothes get caught in. The manufacturer's cure for this problem was to come up with a modified control board that reduces the final nunator time and minimizes the suction action on your clothing. The replacement control board part number is 8571359. I have ordered and installed this board on a few Calypso's. I'm surprised that nobody advised you of this in the past. If you call Whirpool back and they deny this, I got this information from them. It may be worth your while to contact them again to see if there is a recall on this and if they would cover the cost of the repairs.

SOURCE: Whirlpool washer overflow during wash cycle

What you can try is to get the machine empty and remove the hose that connects the pressure hose to the switch and blow air through it to make sure it is clear, then tap on the nozzle where the hose connects on the switch to make sure it is also clear.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Sport Front loading washer and dryer with error code

An easy Fix. Take off the kick panel, 3 screws 1/4 inch. Make sure you have a shop vac ready or a lot of towels as there will be some water. Always disconnect power to washer and dryer, and turn off water to washer. Your filter most likely is clogged with change, screws, lint, and other household stuff that we leave in our pockets! Unscrew the cap on the filter, easy to find, since you have the kick panel off! Take everything out of the filter. Take your shop vac and **** out remaining stuff in hose. Also, **** up any water that has leaked in and around the washer. Screw the cap back on hand tight, put the kick panel back on, turn your water back on, plug it in and there you go! Maybe takes an hour and saves you a repair bill. If you are not comfortable with this procedure then call a maintenance person that is qualified. 775f844.jpg

How do i fix my whirlpool washer model # wfw9150ww00 from leaking water


In the most simple terms, you need to find out where the water is coming from. Once you know that, you can replace the parts or seals that are leaking. Get a technical manual (free and on the web) and remove the access covers to see what is going on.

note, the front door gasket looked intimidating to me to replace on my unit... So I paid on site repair to service it... Which is expensive.

I have been given a Whirlpool AWM 312 by friends moving overseas and don't know how to operate it and would like to get a manual. My main problem is what drawer (front the left facing the machine) do I...


The manuals for most Whirlpool appliances are available here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp . Look for the full model number under the lid on the rim of the washer. AWM 312 is not a complete model number. Next is the washer a top loading or front loading machine? This is actually indicated in the model number - most Whirlpool models start WFW (front-load) or WTW (top-load). The exception is the compact washers (LCE4332PQ is the current model).

For the front-loading washers, the detergent goes into the largest compartment (usually the left-most part of the drawer). Top-loading washers that have a detergent compartment usually have it positioned at the top center back of the tub. Use HE detergent for high efficiency washers and do not use more detergent than recommended (using less is okay).

I hope this helps.

My plastic drum seal on my Whirlpool duet front-loading washer is chipping apart. The drum doesn't run true, is wobbly and has a rhythmic rub when turning. How do I replace the drum seal? Model GHW9100LW.


You have more serious problem than just your drum seal. The support arms in the wash tub are broken. The wash tub should always spin true. When it wobbles it is a sure sign that the suport arms or spider arms are broken. It is an expensive repair since the wash drum, the outer plastic tub and the door seal need to be replaced. Check your warranty, to see if some of these repairs can be covered. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace it. Sorry.

Leak/boot tear in whirlpool duet washer


The front door seal is referred to as the "bellow". They will wear out with age and may become mishapened from repeated pressure from the door being closed. Over time the bellow can stretch or develop rips and tears and begin to leak. If the bellow is leaking, or no longer providing a good seal, it must be replaced. This will cause water to puddle under the front of the washer and inside the cabinet. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load


Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and have great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If the model number is correct, the part number is 8182119.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If you leave the door OPEN between washes this will help prevent constant pressure on the door seal which can stretch it out of shape over time. It is also beneficial to allow the wash tub to air out to prevent mold and mildew from forming. In addition, overloading the washer can contribute to premature wear and tear on the bellow which can lead to rips, tears and possible dislodging from the bellow clamp seals. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for loading in your owner's manual.
