This problem is commonly attributed to a water inlet valve leaking by or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3753262-front_load_washer_fills_when_not_in_use

If you live in an area that has hard water, or if you use well water, the water inlet valve can clog with sediment, rust, or calcified deposits over time and cause the valve not to close properly. This can cause leak by when not in use.

The pressure switch has a small air hose attached that, if it has any holes in it, will cause the pressure switch to malfunction. This can also result in a washer that fills when not in use, but will also cause the washer to overfill in most cases.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you need further assistance. I have included parts resources and procedures on how to replace each part in the link. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Door wont open because there it is full of suds


Try cycling the buttons/knobs to various positions until it restarts. check that power cord is plugged in and circuit breaker is not tripped.

Otherwise move drain hose to a bucket or tray - water should slowly run out once the hose is near the ground.

Our Whirpool duet washer will not spin, gives us the SUDS and F02 message and now the door is locked.....suggestionss?


k now the washer beleives that it is full of water.
pour about 3/4 cup of veg oil in the dispenser. and start the unit.. this will get rid of the suds error.
F02 means long fill.. and the water level has not satisfied the computer for 40 secs. check water connections. making sure they are fully open.
to open the door if it does not unlock, in the dispenser there should be an ODD colored line, five that a tug and the door will pop open

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100LW1 fills up with power off


You have a faulty fill valve

If you want to check which one, try turning off the cold supply only before you go to bed

If the washer has water in it next morning it is the hot valve that has gone faulty if it is dry then it is the cold one

They are easy to change and can be bought from a number of suppliers

Water leaking on the floor while filling


Open the back of the washer. Start the fill cycle and observe where the water is leaking from. You are not going to get a full view of the entire tub by only opening the lower front access.

Fills on its own door open or closed


I would bet the water inlet valve is weeping. It may not seal shut every time. It could have a piece of rest stuck in it also. It's cheap and easy to replace. The part # AP3128776.

Can I make the water level on my whirlpool duet washer higher?


its because of the design of the machine they are water efficient.a front load uses any where from 15 to 18 gals. compared to 40 to 50 gals.for a top load. they also have a higher spin rate than the top loader,therefore making your close dryer and having a less drying time in the dryer.energy efficient too!!
