Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Front loading Whirlpool Duet Sport ht has started to leak and leave a small pool of water on the floor at the front. It does not come from opening the door! It does seem to come from the door or its gasket. The water may be seen dripping down the front of the machine and perhaps inside the frame as well.

If your Whirlpool FRONT LOADER is leaking, the following link can give you guidance on how to inspect the washer to determine where the source of the leak may be coming from:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader


Most commonly, the source of the leak comes from the door bellow (gray rubber seal). They do wear out with age and can develop small rips and tears. A routine inspection of the perimeter of the door seal can determine if you have any holes. If the seal is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load


The manufacturer recommends that you leave the washer door open between washes to prevent the seal from becoming permanently stretched. Once the seal stays compressed constantly it can stretch and not seal properly. In addition, leaving the door open helpd let the wash tub air out and prevent mold, mildew and musty odors.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

So many things that can leak really need to get inside of it to see where its coming from. if there is a kick plate you can do this. if not then the best thing to do is take the back loose and see if you can spot a hole in a hose perhaps.

Duet front load - water fills while door is open!


This is a leaking solonoid valve.
The valves are located just inside the machine where the water supply hoses attach.
  • Remove the power plug
  • Undo the top lid of the washer
  • The valves will have some internal pipes clamped on their outlets. Remove the pipes.
  • Dry the valve outlets with tissue.
  • Turn on the water supply to the washer (if it was off)
  • Watch the open valve outlets for seepage.

There may be between 1 and 3 valves depending on the model.
You should be able to replace the leaking valve quite easily.

Duet Sport HT WFW8400TE Washer: Whirlpool Duet Sport HT front loader is stopping b...


First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Whirlpool Front Loading Door leaking water


The most common cause for a front loading washer to leak from the front door is a torn or detached gasket where that gasket attached to the machine.
Open the door and begin to pull the gasket away from the opening. Look for any problems. If you find a place where the gasket is not firmly secured to the opening, you can list that area up and glue (even with super glue) the gasket back down to the metal opening.
If you find gasket damage, it will need to be replaced.

Water leak from my washer underneath i have a Whirlpool Duet Sport® HT 3.7 I.E.C. cu


Check the filter, as it may be leaking. To do so, take white panel off the front, put a bucket in front of the unit, unseat the rubber feet holding in the white plug and pull the white plug out, unscrew it, allowing water to run into the bucket, clean filter, check the gasket, as it may need replacement (if so, replace it), then screw white plug back in, push plug back into unit, secure the rubber feet, and replace the front panel.

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.
