I guess the washer and dryer are somewhere that someone can get in to use them without permission. Where do you and they get electrical power from?If they are connected through circuit breakers then just throw the breakers when you're not using the machines.

Hi you could have a clogged drain pump or obstruction in it. Remove the lower bottom cover. Have a container or towels to catch water. Removed the drain cover by turning counter clock wise. Sometimes you have to remove the pump to fully and clean. You also need to plug the washer into another outlet. If possible use an extension cord use the extension for test only.

Puppy chewed the cord. It is an internal cord and does not plug into the back of the tv. Can I replace it myself? Directions or diagram? Where is the best place to get the replacement cord?


Any polarized power cord will work----cautions: the cord where it connects inside will have either a white stripe on one side or a rough surface---that is the neutral side---replacement must be soldered to correct points---you get it backwards and set will work but shock hazard will exist-------if you have enough cord left you can do a splice repair-----I cut them back and offset so not next to each other(the two sides of the cord----get some heat shrink tubing--slide it over each side and down a ways---solder the two ends for each side back together (you will lose a little of the cord) and once soldered slide the shrink tubing down over the soldered parts and heat it with a hair dryer and it will shrink air tight over the solder connection's---you do not want the splices side by side to prevent any possible short----for extra protection once done use some black electrical tape and tape the whole area.

Either replace entire cord or splice repair it. Examine cord end to end for any bare wire showing---if chewed in more than one spot replace entire cord.

WASHER TURNS ON FOR COUPLE OF SECONDS THEN TRIPS BREAKER.PROBLEM WITH MOTOR ???.


Is it tripping the breaker on your home's electrical panel? If this is the case, you need to know what that breaker is also feeding, how much amperage it can handle, and what the load demand is. Your washer needs 1700W which is around 15 Amps. If you're on a 15 Amp breaker that is already supplying power to something else, such as incandescent light bulbs, then you're going to trip the breaker each and every time. You'll want to plug it into a 20 Amp circuit that's being used by little to no other electrical devices. A quick alternative is to unplug or power off all other devices before using the washer... or plug it into the same outlet that you use your blow dryer.

I need to know how to install a cellanoid in my Whirlpool Duet washer Mod # GHW9150PW4 is there a place to get the instructions?


Are you meaning the Water Inlet Solenoid Valve??????

If yes .... you need to know if your W/P Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer really has a bad Water Inlet Solenoid Valve for the Hot and Cold water. This valve is where the Hot and Cold water hoses connect to the rear of your washer on the upper top left side in the rear as you are facing the washer. In my opinion it is highly unlikely that your Water Inlet Solenoid Valve is bad....but it is possible. Sometimes the filter screen in the inlet(s) of the Hot & Cold water valve can be stopped up with dirt, sediments, etc. If you turn off the water faucets and remove the Hot & Cold water hoses from the washing machine... you will be able to see the screens...if they are stopped up you can remove them with a small screw driver and clean them and reinstall them.

Hook up your hoses and turn on your water supply Hot and Cold faucets.

Here is a quick test procedure that you can do to verify the operation of the Water Inlet Solenoid Valve.

Verify that your water hoses are hooked up and the water faucets (Hot & Cold) are turned on.

Unplug the washer's 120Volt AC power supply cord from the electrical plug on the wall.

(1) Remove the top cover...There will be three screws on rear area of the cover: Left - Middle -Right.
(2) Once the top cover is removed...you will be able to see the Water Inlet Solenoid Valve...just follow the Hot & Cold water hoses from the wall to your washer. Usually the water inlet solenoid has a blue plastic housing assembly with (2) separate push-on or pull-off quick disconnect electrical connectors. One connector pair provides 120volt AC to the Hot water solenoid and the other connector pair provides the 120volt AC to the Cold water solenoid.
(3) Remove the push on or pull off quick disconnect electrical connector to one of the water inlet solenoids..It does not matter which one at this point in time.
(4) You will need an electrical 120v AC Test Cord. You can make this from an old lamp AC power cord or and old 120v AC Extension Cord. You will need two alligator test jumpers or leads (Radio Shack has them). The end of the test cord that plugs into wall is not to be modified. The other end of the test cord will have to be modified in order to conduct this testing. Strip back the insulation to reveal the two leads that will carry the 120v AC power. You should have one black lead (120v AC HOT) and one white lead (120v AC Neutral). Connect (1) alligator test lead to the black lead and insulate with electrical tape as necessary and connect (1) alligator test lead to the white lead and insulate with electrical tape as necessary You now have your 120v AC Test Cord ready. If you have a VOM test meter..you can connect the VOM meter to the two remaining alligator test leads. Have your VOM test meter set for AC Volts and on a scale that will measure 120v AC. Plug in your test cord to the 120V AC wall power. If everything is OK your meter should read approximately 120 Volts AC.

(5) Unplug your 120v AC Test Cord from the wall power.

(6) Connect your 120v AC Test Cord to your Water Inlet Solenoid Valve electrical terminals.
See Step (3).

(7) Plug your 120v AC Test Cord into wall power. If the water solenoid valve is good you should hear water surging thru the water solenoid valve. If you do not hear the water running thru the valve you can verify if the 120v AC is getting to the valve with your VOM. It should read 120v AC. If it does read 120Volts AC at the terminals of the valve and you do not hear the water then the valve is probably defective: Either stuck shut and won't open or the solenoid coil is open (Bad).

(8) Unplug your 120v AC Test Cord from wall power.

(9) Disconnect your (2) alligator test leads from the solenoid valve and re-install the electrical push on connectors that was disconnected in Step (3)

(10) You can now repeat this test on the other side of the Water Solenoid Valve (See Step 3).

(11) If both sides of the Water Solenoid Valve check out good...then your Water Inlet Solenoid Valve is good. If it does not check out then replace it.

(12) If your Water Inlet Solenoid Valve is good...then ....unfortunately, there is a good chance that the CCU module is bad. The CCU module is in effect a computer control unit and controls the overall operation of the washer. The CCU module will cost approximately $150.00

Does this washer dryer need to have a ground fault plug in?


Hi!!
No, the washer/dryer does not need a GFI, it is well insulated an all electrical components that even if you had a water leak, and touch the unit, it will not shock you. What is needed is a 3 prong connector, this extra ground prong will increase the protection against a electrical shock. I have seen people that removes this prong so they can use an extension cord, it is not recommended to use extension cords with this units, but in case that you must use one, make sure the extension cord has 3 wires and an AWG rating larger than the load is going to carry to prevent overheating and possible fire hazard.
Most homes are equipped with a dedicated outlet for the washer/dryer. If your unit is connected to one of those outlets, you have nothing to worry about.
Good Day!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

The correct (political) answer is that your should ALWAYS replace power cords.

Today's computers power supplies have two parts, the wall plug, 3 prong, and the transformer with the "PORT" plug for the laptop.

The 1st part, you can buy new or a qualified technician can splice out the bad part.
The second part, is usually a DC (direct Current) cable with special grounds and insulation. The molding that houses the electrical wires is not accessible to consumers for that very reason. If you have to bend the cable to make the connection, then the plug is clearly defective and SHOULD be replace. In a pinch, depending on how far the break is on the plug, it might too be spliced.

Replace it as soon as possible.

Hoover 0910dryer not heating. element replaced not long ago


Hi, the possible causes are: Possible Causes: The wall receptacle, power cord (plug) and electrical supply must be in good condition and wired correctly for the dryer to heat.
  • Supply Issue - Loose or missing connection on supply wire from circuit breaker.
  • Plug Issue - Loose or missing connection in the wall. Defective, worn or damaged wall plug.
  • Cord Issue - Loose, missing or incorrect connection of the power cord to the dryer terminals.
If gas dryer and does not heat, Gas Dryer heats with a gas burner, make sure the gas supply line valve is open.
Also, for electric dryer,
Electric dryers require two 30 amp breakers or fuses in the house electrical box to run and heat. If one breaker is tripped or one fuse is blown, the motor, the timer and lights can work but the dryer will not heat.

Dryer runs intermittently


"Could the cord/plug and/or receptical be bad and need replaced or is it likely to be something in the dryer's internal wiring?"

Yes, that electrical smell and the dryer not working are all signs of a bad motor.

"I noticed that the plug looked like it was somewhat scorched."

I would replace that plug. This is how electrical fires start.

Conveyor dryer wiring


Newer electrical codes call for a 4 wire receptacle. never splice appliance cords, it isn't woth the safety issue and they are not very expensive. you need to access the terminal block, which is where the cord goes into the dryer. the cord you use (3 or 4 wire) will depend on what is on your wall. if you wall has a 3 wire plug then you will need to connect the green wire from the center terminal to the frame of the dryer. there is probably a hole and screw next to terminal block. that is where the green wire goes on a 3 wire hook-up. if you have a 4 wire receptacle then the green wire should be hooked to center terminal (white). you will have to obtain the proper cord (pigtail) from a parts supplier.
