Whirlpool Duet Front end Washer

When we went to load the washer this morning, we found about an inch and a half at the bottom of the tub of the machine. This si the first time that we notice this. We have been using this machine for the past 4 years. I checked the taps on they are not leaking.

    Since the time I posted this problem, it did not happen. What the wife said is that she used the hand wash cycle with the low spin. If it would be the inlet valve, we would always have water trickling in.

    I too have had standing water periodically in my washer. I am wondering if it is the result of too much detergent/suds being used. I have a water softener and I wonder if using the amount of detergent recommended is too much. Any ideas?

You have a bad water inlet valve. its not seating properly allowing water to trickle in when not in use. youll need to replae the water valve. in mean time turn water off between uses.

My washer threw the F H code, it ended up I had caused the problem earlier in...


This advice is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model FRONT LOADERS displaying the “FH” error code.

"F/H" indicates that either you have no water coming into the washer, or very little water.

If you have NO water coming into the wash tub after 30 seconds the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Inlet water valve may be clogged. Clean inlet screens if necessary.
- Make sure water taps are on.
- Check inlet hoses for kinks or clogs.

If you HAVE water filling the wash tub, and after 8 minutes, 10.5 gallons of water has been detected by the flowmeter, but there has not been a detected a Pressure Switch trip, the inlet valves are turned off and the error code is displayed. Check the following:

- Make sure you don't have a siphoning problem. Click the following link for instructions: http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning
- Verify Drain Pump operation.
- Verify Flowmeter operation.
- Verify the Pressure Switch hoses are intact and connected properly.

To access the Drain Pump - UNPLUG the washer and take the lower panel under the door off by removing the three screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Propping the front feet of the washer up can make access much easier. I use a couple small blocks of wood. With the screws removed, the panel should drop down then come off. If it sticks, tap either side and it should come free. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. Verify the electrical connections are good and that the pump is running. If not, click on the following link to check the pump for obstructions:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385845-checking_drain_pump_in_whirlpool_duet

To access the Flowmeter and Pressure Switch – remove the three screws in the top panel along the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel should slide back, then, lift off. The flowmeter will be located on the left-hand side of the washer (facing from the front) between the inlet valve and dispenser. It’s a small white plastic device with hoses attached. The pressure switch is located on the right-hand side of the washer in the rear. It is a round plastic device with electrical connections and a hose attached.


There should be a tech sheet directly behind the panel or attached to one of the interior cabinet walls. Please refer to this sheet to learn how to perform diagnostics, how to locate the components mentioned, and the specific measurements required determining if the components are good or bad.

I hope this helpful. Please post back if you can't find the tech sheet and/or need further assistance.

My whirlpool front end load duet washer has an inner drum which was making increasingly loud noise and now seems loose from the outer drum


Hi,

I am sorry to say that fixing this is a major repair. it involves replacing the inner tub and at least the rear half of the outer tub. Getting to these parts involves almost total dis-assembly of the washer. It takes me 2.5 to 3 hours to do this job generally, and the parts cost is substantial.

If I were you, my first step would be to contact Whirlpool and try to get them to cover the repair, or at least the parts.

If you would like to attempt the repair, I will gladly give you some pointers and help you through it, just be aware that it is a complex procedure.

Let me know if you need more help,
Mainetech

How do I get change out of the washer? It went


I think you are talking about the three tub baffles that are attached to the inner tub. You can remove the baffles, usually one or two screws hold these into the tub. If it only has one screw then the opposite end is clipped into the tub. Most coins however get flushed down into the drain pump filter. We call this a coin catcher as that is what it is designed to do. Remove the front bottom panel, 3 to 4 screws on the bottom. Put a towel down under the pump to catch about a half gallon of water. There is a large round plastic screw that you unscrew from the pump assembly. The screw is three to 4 inches in diameter and almost dead center on the bottom front of the washer. Once you have unscrewed the unit, pull it out and clean out everything you see. Look inside and make sure there is nothing in the hose or the pump inlet hole. Reinstall and test for leaks before you put the panel back on. I recommend you clean this out every 6 months. Good Luck,
