Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I have a 6 1/2 year old Whirlpool Duet washer. There is a constant gurgling sound (like wather bubbling up) coming from it when it's not in use. I turn off the water supply after each use, and there are no visible leaks. The machine is working fine otherwise. What could be causing this noise, and should I be concerned? How can I make it stop?
Check your drain line. You may have a siphoning condition. The following link explains:
If you have the water source turned off, the only other way water gets into the washer is through the drainage system. If you do not have the proper air gap or placement on the drain line, it can create a vacuum and allow water to siphon back into the washer.
NOTE: Some residual water in the drain line is normal.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Check the water valve on the back of the refrigerator if it has an ice maker. Make sure the valve is turned completely on and not constricting the flow of water to the refrigerator via the water supply line. You might also hear a simultaneous buzzing sound when the gurgling noise occurs. In some refrigerator models, this filling process is on a timer, and you might hear the buzzing and/or gurgling every 15 minutes or so.
Check the water supply line for leaks or damage. You might see a puddle of liquid on the floor. If air is pulled into the water line as the refrigerator is pulling in water, that can create a gurgling noise. Replace the damaged hose yourself, or contact an appliance repair technician for assistance
Wait while the refrigerator completes its defrosting cycle if you hear water dripping and gurgling in the freezer area. When the heating coil turns on, the melted water from the frost flows down to a drain pan for evaporation to take place. The defrost process usually takes about 30 minutes. This is automatic and cannot be prevented in most refrigerators. Keep the closed to try to prevent unnecessary frost buildup.
Wait while the water equalizes in the refrigerator if you hear a gurgling sound when shutting the door. This is normal and is a result of air being forced through the drain tube. The gurgling can last several seconds but should eventually dissipate this usually happens with old fridges upgrade its a good investment
