Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Reimbursement for ruined clothes

My black clothes were ruined after the Control Panel was replaced
but defective. Bleach from the prior load was not dispensed and
went all over my black clothes.
I lost $200.00 in clothes.

    Is the check really in the mail?

  • Liz221 Feb 27, 2008

    That is ridiculous that we spend so much money on an

    appliance and can't depend on it to dispense the bleach

    properly.



    I did call Whirlpool and they told me to go to the website and

    contact someone there.



    I hope I don't have anymore problems.

    Thanks

You should never put bleach in the dispenser ,
unless it is colorfast bleach.
always add bleach diluted directly in the drum to prevent this from happening in the future.
the dispenser may never clear the bleach fully.

check is in the mail.

    Nope , jus kiddin, whirlpool has never been known to do this unless you call them and complain in person.
    Your issue has happened to a lot of folks when the dispenser and hoses didn't clear.
    I am serious about the solution though as I have this duet and don't trust it with bleach. except the liquid colorfast version.
    We always rinse the tub in hot water when using clorox bleach, then run a cycle of rinse.
    Wait a while and you'll be back to this forum with a new issue with this washer.

Front load washers need more maintenance than top load units. you might try some bleach on a rag or some vinegar but it's tough to get off once it starts..Make sure your using HE detergent and definitely leave the door open after loads to let the seal dry

Bleach ruining clothes


Why use bleach unless it is to whiten curtains, ACDO make a specific product for that purpose

Use a pre-wash program and the correct multi - layered tablet or old fashioned powder

Both products contain bleach and whiteners as part of their construction.

Make sure that you use the correct one for coloured items as they will remove colour

Bleach ruins colored load done after white load


Your bleach dispenser is the problem. It needs to be replaced. All of the bleach isn't leaving the dispenser so when you go to wash your colored clothing what's left in there comes out. Best thing to do till you fix it is wash your whites last. You can try running some white vinegar through the wash on the hottest cycle. Pour the vinegar into the bleach area and the soap area and run it on hot. Run it a couple of times. If there is anything clogging up the dispenser this might clean it out. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck.

Clothes picking up residual dyes & bleach spots


I dont think the washing machine is designed to put bleach in??
Remember a washing machine is never really empty of water.
It holds about 1 litre of water in the tub after each cycle.
Thats the way they are designed.
The same as front loader.
I would put clothing in the tub to bleach,then rinse them in the tub with cold water ,then wash them?? cheers

The lint is not being washed from machine. All dark clothing has lint residue. How can I rectify this problem please? Currently my husband using damp cloth has to wipe over black clothing extensively prior...


the self cleaning lint filter seems to be clogged. before you replace it try this cheap/ easy remedy.
  • run a load with no clothes on high water level, hot water and a gallon or two of bleach.
  •  no soap. 
  • do an extra rinse after to make sure you rinse all the bleach away before putting more clothes in.
the lint filter may be defective since it has always had this problem, but its worth a try.

DARK CLOTHES END UP WITH BLEACH DOT STAINS


Hello sa-kap,

yYu said,

Hi, I have a top loading Kenmore Elite washer (don't know model #) from the year 2002. It has the automatic bleach dispenser. The problem is that if someone has washed clothes with bleach sometime during the day and someone else comes along and washes dark clothes, the clothes get ruined with dot bleach stains. It appears that the bleach remains in the washer. Any tips or do I need to buy a new washer? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
V.C.My problem is similar to that which VCasabona is having. Not just dots occur but often big splotches. It may not even be just a colored load following whites on the same day but, on occasion, it occurs on the next laundry day, a week later with the first load that is not the whites with bleach. Also, my wife adds the bleach to the filled washer (old school, I guess), rather than pouring into the dispenser. My water pressure, which is not at issue, is not what I need to address to remedy the situation. I have noted that the ledge that is part of the floating tub had some build-up of deposits, some of which may have been bleach. These I've reached in with damp cloths and removed as best I can. I've run full, empty loads through hoping this would flush out any lingering bleach. Because the occurrences run intermittently from infrequently to frequently I cannot be sure if any of my attempts to remedy the problem are having any effect. I've guessed at the model # of the Kenmore top load washer we own since Dec of 1999


Sounds like some water is remaining in the tub after the pump gets done emptying the washer.
So its the pump!
The Kenmore Elite is a good washer and I believe worth fixing!
Unless the cost is half the price of the cost of a replacement.

Bless You,
Please write me a good rating before you sign off.

DARK CLOTHES END UP WITH BLEACH DOT STAINS


SOME BLEACH DISPENSERS USE COLD WATER TO FLUSH THE BLEACH FROM THE CUP. CHECK THE COLD WATER FOR GOOD PRESSURE. IF THERE ISN'T GOOD PRESSURE, REMOVE THE COLD WATER HOSE FROM THE MACHINE AND CHECK THE SCREEN INSIDE THE VALVE WHERE YOU REMOVED THE HOSE. PUT THE END OF THE HOSE IN THE TUB AND TURN IT ON. CHECK FOR GOOD PRESSURE. CLEAN THE SCREEN AND RECHECK THE WATER PRESSURE AFTER REINSTALLING THE HOSE AND TURNING ON THE WATER. IF YOU STIL HAVE POOR PRESSURE REPLACE THE VALVE.

Clothes picking up residual dyes & bleach spots


You might want to check with the company on this one. You can email them at their web site. We've never run into this and I haven't heard of anyone else who has. Maybe your unit isn't pumping properly or maybe some of the water is siphoning back into the tub? I have heard about pumps becoming partially or fully clogged and in need of being cleaned out.

Keep us posted on this one?
