Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Can you help me?
I recently had the same problem.. There is usually a panel on the lower front of the washer. I flipped open the panel door and removed the screw out plug. Make sure you have a floor drain at this point, as the water will come out when the plug is removed. This plug also contains a filter. It was plugged up with all sorts of debris... Lint, dryer sheets, rubber bands, a stick ect ect. I just cleaned the filter and plugged it back in. The washer worked normally after this. This is a simple thing to try before removing the back panel and drain hose to check for obstructions. The solution by jsrock516 would be the next logical solution. After that I would think that a faulty drain pump would be the problem

You can gain acess to the pump cleanout by removing 3 torx 15 screws from along bottom of front panel. justbehind the panel youl find the "bttoun trap. unscrew it and chances are youll find baby socks, bra underwires, etc... )somethings blocking the pump from orkin proerly, be warned scoop water out first, and tip unit back if possible. when oyu unscrew the pump clean out all water above will be coming out

The "F2" error is referring to excessive drain time. Unplug machine before working on it. Remove screws on bottom of lower panel and remove panel. The drain pump is behind the panel, It has a large round door on it, turn counter clock wise by hand to access pump clean out. Have lots of towels ready. Remove anything from pump (usually kids socks or small clothing articles). If nothing in pump clean out remove suction boot from drain pump and check there. If nothing there blow through the drain hose from the pump side to check if anything is stuck in the hose. If that's clear check the electrical connection on the pump, make sure nothing is loose or broken at the connection. If all this checks out good and it still wont work you probably have a bad pump and it will need to be replaced. If you do find something was blocked or clogged due to small clothing articles I would recommend a garment/lingerie bag to keep all the small stuff together during the wash cycle. Hope this helps to fix your problem. Please remember to rate this and every solution you get.

take off the front panel below thedoor. reach up behind the lock you will feel a little knob. pull it down about 1/4 inch and pull door open.

Press and hold "end of cycle" button for 3 seconds, on the right side
of panel. This is the child lock feature, do it again & it locks.
If helped, pl rate me good!!

L20 is not a valid error code.
Unplug for 40 minutes and re-try.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
