Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Duet front load washer door locked & will not cont wash cycle

Our front load Duet Whirlpool washing machine (it is about 3 years old & we do not have a warrenty) has been on the blink for two days. We have unplugged it several times & plugged it back in (thinking this would reset itself).

We have pushed various buttons, to no avail...it is still STUCK on the Quick Wash (28 minutes shows on the digital panel, still). It actually went thru one wash cycle, BUT the ycle did otcomplete itself, because it stopped @ oe min an went no further. when w unplugged it the first time, we thought it would reset itself, insted it wnt back to displaying 28min on the wash cycle, as if it were starting over----BUT it did not wash...made no sounds...so our clothes are stuck in Duet Washing Machine Land & we still cannot open the door (which has locked itself tightly).

We don't know what to do from here....BUT it sounds like this would be quite expensive to fix, since it appears to do with a mechanized system, of sorts. We have had a little trouble like this before in the past a couple of times...BUT we left the machine alone for a couple of hours...and it always worked itself out. BUT now, this has been two days, and the machine is doing nothing more for us, except to continue with its locked door antics, as well as displaying the 28 min wash cycle on its digital panel.

Appreciate and assistance/advice you can relay on this matter.

You can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove all the water in the unit this should unlock your door then you can check the drain pump for anything that may be restricting or blocking the drain pump

Duet washer stopped during wash cycle.


take off the panel below the door three screws and look for the tech sheet located on the right side. It will coach yoou thru the codes and common problems. Sounds like it may be the door swithch does it lock when you push the start? If not the door switch my guess would be a machine control. 877-262-1479 parts.

Whirlpool control locked


Power shd be on. Press and hold "end of cycle" button for 3 seconds. Always wait for 2 minutes after the wash is over for the machine to release the door lock; an inbuilt safety device. Never force washer doors, you'll have probs.
Check out your filter too.
