Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My Whirlpool Duet clothes washer will work for the first 7 minutes and then F20 (Water Inlet Problem) flashes. I've tried unplugging it overnight and that didn't help. It's getting water fine during the first 7 minutes. I've also checked and pulled the drain hose out of the drain pipe.

    Regarding recommendation #4, what is a wire harness?

  • royceann Jul 14, 2009

    My plumber knew what the problem was!!! We had flood control steel hoses on it that were malfunctioning. Every time water went through the hoses, it indicated there was a flood and the hose shut off the water supply.

    Thanks for your help!

What does it mean when my duet washer flashes F20?


F20 is a No Water Detect error.
It is an indication that you either have no water coming into the washer, or very little water at all. If the pressure switch has not tripped after 6 minutes, the error code is displayed. This can be a potential problem with the following:

* If you have NO water in the wash tub, check the following:
- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

* If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, check the following:
- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions: Duet_Service_F20_error

Hope helps.

F20 appires on the time display


Hi,

The reason for "F 20" is that while there is "NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING MACHINE OR PRESSURE SWITCH TRIP NOT DETECTED." If after 30 seconds not minimum 0.1l of water entered or maximum fill time of 13 minutes is exceeded, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
The possible fix for this problem is:
If there is no water in the unit: Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves.
Verify inlet valve operation.

If there is water in the unit: Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and
properly connected to tub and pressure switch.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, flow meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Verify pressure switch operation.
7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and measuring the resistance.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.


Thank you

Right befor it goes to rinse mode cycle if flashes F20. This is a new machine. I never used it. This was the first test I did.


F20 = NO WATER DETECTED ENTERING MACHINE OR PRESSURE SWITCH TRIP NOT DETECTED.

The pressure switch is not tripped after 6 minutes.

If there is no water in the unit:
#1 cause = Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
else
Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet
valves.
Verify inlet valve operation.
If there is water in the unit:
Verify drain pump operation.
Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly
connected to tub and pressure switch.
1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
2. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. The machine will drain
for 3 minutes before unlocking the door.
3. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
4. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch,
drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).
5. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
6. Plug in washer or reconnect power
