Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
My 3 year old duet wash has been leaking water and water has been accumulating in the drum. I have an extended warranty from Best Buy and they've been out 2 times this week. First time, he found a sock between the drum and below and declared problem solved. 2nd time he cleaned out a valve next to the water pump and declared problem solved. I ran a load of laundry yesterday and the drum was filled with approximately 3 inches of water and clothes were wet. I ran the drain and Spin mode and the drum cleared. This morning I went to dry the clothes that were in the washer and again the drum was filled with water and had leaked.
For those wondering about replacing the water inlet valve - this is a very simple undertaking. You can find the part online for around 40 bucks. All you have to do is unplug the washer, detach the hot and cold supply hoses, remove the lid (3 torx bits on my model) unhook the water line from the old inlet valve (conveniently accessible at the top right of the unit from the rear), unhook the electrical connections (be sure to label these for later re-attachment), unscrew the 1 screw holding the valve in place, and reverse the process with the new valve. I'm hoping this will stop water accumulating in the drum - I'll update later if it does not.

I have a front load whirlppol duet. It leaks through the door when the clothes seem to rotate in the drum. As soon as the clothing rotates and hits the bottom of the drum the water comes out the bottom of the door.

If the washer is intermittently allowing water to fill into the tub when not in use, you may have a fill valve that is leaking by. Sometimes when the water pressure in your home is too low (minimum of 25psi for most washing machines), or when the fill valve becomes worn, the diaphragm doesn't close all the way, causing water to leak by. It could be that you may also have sediment in the valve not allowing it to seat properly when closed. This would cause water to leak into the tub over a period time and may overflow onto the floor. I have experienced this problem before. Just something else to think about. You may try closing the water valves when not in use, to see if the problem goes away. If it does...the likely suspect could be a fill valve needing cleaned or replaced. Also you can purchase a water pressure gauge to check the inlet pressure to see if it meets minimum pressure requirements. I hope you find this information helpful.

Thanks Master Tech! I removed the lint clean out and found some chewed up change. I cleaned it, put it back and ran a load. It usually fills up overnight. So far it looks good!

Any chance I can change the water inlet valve without remove the top of the washer (I have the dryer mounted on top)?

I agree with the inlet water valve being the only thing to give you these symptoms. Does your water seem to be able to run as strong as in the past? If so then best buy needs to replace the valve or put a new diaphram and needle valve in it. The way to figure out for sure is to turn the water off as soon as you have finished with the washing for the day and see if this stops the water in the tank problem. If so then it must be the valve or water pressure.

There is no way that water can back feed into the unit the pump has a backflow flapper built in to prevent the water from coming back in what is sounds like is eith er all the water is not going out at the end of the cycle or you have a fill valve that is leaking by a small amount of water and when the unit sets it accumlates in the drum.. but the leaking out i cant explain unless you have a pin hole in one of the drain lines or the pump may have acrack in it .. The best thing to do is remove the 3 (torx) screws from the bottom of the unit and take off the bottom panel you will see a pump / lint clean out there.. get some towels or a shop vac to catch the water let in the sump.. see if that is clear then screw it in and run a load with the panel off. to see if you see any leaks..Just a note there maybe a door switch for that panel and it will need to be taped closed for the unit to operate.. not on all models.. Try that and let me know..

Hi, If you are getting water in the washer without it running, the inlet mixer valve is going bad. When you run a load, does it finish spinning and all the water is out? I hope this helps you. It is not an expensing repair. I can walk you through the repair if you would like.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
