Whirlpool Duet washer shuts off when tub fills with water

First, does your unit attempt to clear the water from the drum at all? That is, do you HEAR the drain motor engage and attempt to pull water out of the drum? I had to do a little more than clear the drain filter to fix mine. The drain filter was clear, but my Duet still wouldn't clear the water from the drum. When I pulled off the drain filter cap, I got a trickle (not a GUSH as you normally would) of water, indicating that the problem was further up in the line. However, first confirm there's nothing obstructing the exterior line clear thru to the drain filter. And I have to ask, does ANYTHING drain from the tub-- that is, is NOTHING coming out (in which case it is probably your drain motor), or is it just coming out slowly (indicating an obstruction prior to the motor)? Slowly means you should backtrack from the drain filter to the tub basin. On my unit, there is a black rubber hose that comes off the drain filter and leads to the tub collection basin. This hose attaches with a hose clamp that is easily removed with a set of pliers (in all honesty, in fact, it is considerably more difficult to put it back ON). When you remove it, you'll notice a float at the beginning of the black rubber hose. Clean out around it. Then, (and probably a more likely cause of an obstruction) reach your hand up into the tub basin and feel around. Mine yielded about 5 cups (no kidding) worth of yuck that was causing my drain issue that, when removed, completely solved the problem.

I have a Duet Whirlpool Front-Loading Washer and the last couple of days I've noticed there has been water in the drum. I ran it through just the drain/spin cycle it appears to remove the water only to...

Sounds like you have a seal issue. Try and shut the water from the back connection off after you do a load. I believe that it sounds like you have a leak from the gasket and it is letting water in when you don't want it there. If the water isnt there then we have narrowed the issue. Please let me know what happens. Hope it helps!

Got an F2 error code on my whirlpool duet washer what does it mean?

F20 code stating "No water or Insufficient water supply".

Possible solutions/areas to look at:
· Check the inlet screens where the hose connects to washer. Make sure it’s clean.
· Check height and length of discharge hose. If it goes into a "standard" height wall box, a sagging drain hose can make the tank siphon on the final spin. Wind the drain hose around some of the clips on the back of the washer, decreasing the sag in the discharge hose to almost nothing.
· Check to see if there is a tiny hole in the pressure switch hose-happens from the drum rubbing on the hose.
· Lastly, it may be the water inlet valve has failed. It’s fairly common. You can search for it online and put it in yourself. It’s pretty simple to do. Whirlpool part number 8540751

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: I find water in the drum after i have washed cloth...

Check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Moving across country. Want to know how to safely move my whirlpool duet washer. Have original huge screws. What to do with them?

The large screws you mention are called shipping (or transport) bolts. They need to be installed prior to moving the washer to prevent damage to the drum, drum supports or counter-weights. They are inserted in the back of the washer. There are some small white plastic transport covers that you will need to remove to see where the screws insert. You can view an exploded view diagram of your washer at The transport covers that I am describing are listed as item 26 under the "Top and Cabinet Parts" section.

In addition, its a good idea to remove any residual water from the wash tub and drain lines. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, an easy way to accomplish this task is to remove the drain line from the stand pipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will pull any water that remains in the washer. This water can become stagnant if the washer remains closed up for any significant period of time. If you do not own a shop vac, an alternate method is to remove the clean out trap on the drain pump. Be prepared to place some towels down around the pump to catch any water. To access the drain pump, remove the toe panel directly below the washer door. This is done by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: For better access to the panel screws, you can prop up the two front feet of the washer (a 2x4 works well for this).

The drain hose normally has a plastic saddle bracket that helps the hose keep its shape. On that bracket is a screw hole. Remove one of the top panel screws in the rear of the washer and reinstall with the drain hose bracket attached. This will enable you to ship the washer with the drain hose affixed to the back of the unit and not dangling.

When removing the fill hoses, leave them attached to the washer and tape them to the back panel of the washer. Or, remove them and place them inside the wash tub for safe keeping.

I hope I've given you enough information to assist you with your move. If you have any further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Is there a filter for duet sport front washer- 8300SW00?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Are you having a FILL problem, or a DRAIN problem?

If you are having problems with the washer FILLING, there are sediment screens in the water inlet valve. They are located in the connections on the back of the washer where the fill hoses attach. Some hoses also have screens in the ends that need to be checked periodically too. If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, it is common for these screens to become clogged with debris from time to time. Cleaning with distilled vinegar and cotton swabs can help dissolve rust, sediment and remove any debris. Simply turn off the water supply and remove the hoses form the back of the washer to check.

If you are having problems with the washer DRAINING, there is a clean out trap on the drain pump. You will need to remove the lower panel under to door to access. The drain pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Before you remove the cap on the pump reservoir you will need to place some towels down to catch residual water that will drain from the drain lines (this is normal). If you own a wet/dry shop vac, you can minimize this mess by taking the drain hose form the standpipe at the wall and pulling a vacuum on the line to drain all the water. There's about a gallon of water that remains in the lower tub and drain lines. A shop vac can help prevent you from having to mop up a mess of water. Unscrew the drain cap and pull the trap out and clean. With the trap removed, look inside the pump and make sure you also check the pump impeller. It is common from small items to get lodged in the impeller and restrict water flow.

If this is not what you are talking about, please post back and elaborate a little more so I can understand your problem. If you have any further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

2003 Whirlpool Duet Washer clear water pooling in drum after use.

When the machine is off, there are only two ways water could possibly enter. 1 Check the drain hose install, that it is not installed deep in the standpipe, if the hose is shoved too deep, it can sometimes siphon (rare with front loaders) water back into the machine.
2. Most likely cause, a slow leak from the water valve. Sometimes the water solenoid will not close completely, and you will get a very, very slow leak into the machine.
If not the drain hose, try shutting off the water supply valves when done using the machine, if that takes care of it, you may want to replace the machine's inlet valve.

Standing water in a Duet when turned off...

More than likely you have a fill valve problem. This is the only component that controls the turning on or shutting off of water thats between the dispenser tube and the fill hoses . You also may have a condition known as "siphoning" that can cause this. The following link explains:

Normally this condition is associated with a washer that cannot retain a sufficient water level and constantly drains. It can also cause back flow from the drain too. Just something to consider.

If you're sure its not a simple installation issue on your drain hose placement, take a look at the dispenser tube thats located in the rubber door bellow. A tale-tell sign of inlet valve leak by is a small trickle or drip of water coming from the dispenser tube. It may not be readily noticeable, but can show up as water sitting in the bottom of the spin basket over time. NOTE: It is NORMAL to have residual water between the spin basket and outer tub shell. This water, however, should not be at a level where it is visible inside the basket when the tub is empty.

Now, if you decide to replace the water inlet valve, a replacement can be ordered on line at Just type in your COMPLETE model number and look for item number 1 (part #8181694) under the "Dispenser Parts" heading. To replace the valve, follow these steps:

1. Unplug washer and turn off water supply. Disconnect fill hoses from back of washer.
2. Remove the washer top panel by removing the screws that hold it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
3. The water inlet valve is located in the left rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). Remove the dispenser hose(s) and electrical connectors from the valve.
4. Remove the mounting screws that holds the inlet valve in place.
5. Reinstall with a replacement valve using the above steps in reverse order.

It's that simple. This is not a difficult repair at all, and its not that expensive. I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance let me know.

Actually it's a Duet "HT" Model No# GHW9250MW2

Sounds like you have a water inlet valve that is leaking by. It is a solenoid controlled valve where the fill hoses hook up to. They sometimes become gunked up with rust or sediment and the diaphragms may not seat properly when the valve is in the closed position. This is particulary true if you live in an area with hard water or use well water. You can remove the valve and try cleaning (distilled white vinegar works well), or simply replace the valve (if you do not wish to repeat the process of removing the valve twice if cleaning does not work). If you wish to replace the valve follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer before servicing.
2. Turn off the water supply lines and remove the hoses from the washer.
3. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear. With the screws removed, the top panel will slide back then lift off.
4. The water inlet valve is mounted to the back panel of the washer on the left hand side (facing from the front). Disconnect the electrical connections and dispenser hose.
5. Remove the mounting screw(s) holding the valve assembly in place and remove.
6. Reinstall new valve assembly using the previous steps in reverse order.

A new assembly can be located at Just type in your model number and located item number 1 (part #8181694) under the "Dispenser Parts" heading. Another website that also carries the part is (item number 906483). Both are good resources for obtaining parts, however Sears also offers helpful illustrations as well.

Good catch on the symptoms. This problem can also be caused by a drain problem, caused by a siphoning condition allowing drain water to back up into the washer. I have a write-up that explains siphoning under my "Tips and Tricks" section under my profile if you wish to read it. However, you did mention you noticed water trickling in near the door, which leads me to believe you have a water inlet problem. This is the only component between the dispenser and fill hoses that controls the water shutting off. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you resolve your problem.
