Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
It sounds like you may have a combination of two problems. First, the no drain issue. This could be the result of a clogged or restricted drain line preceding the drain pump, a drain pump that has accumulated debris and needs to be cleaned, or a drain pump that is failing. The following link explains how to access the pump the check the pump and clean:
On some model washers there is no screw off cap on the pump and you will have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Removing the inlet hose for inpsection is recommended on all these washers just to ensure there isn't anything lodged in the line. Debris and small articles of clothing such as socks or under garments can become lodged in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.
NOTE: The washer will not complete a wash cycle until the conditions causing the error are corrected. There is usually an error code on the front panel display that accompanies a drainage issue. A "SUD" error can often occure in conjunction with any error code due to air being detected in the drainage system. This can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error (if displayed) should go away.
NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:
The second problem of the washer filling when not in use can be caused by either a water inlet valve not closing properly, or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to determine WHICH component may be causing your problem:
More than likely, your suspicions are correct. The problem more commonly turns out to be a water inlet valve problem. I have inlcuded the steps required to replace the either component, if required.
These are very simple repairs that you can perform yourself without the assistance of a repairman.
If the wash tub is full of water, you may want to use a wet/dry shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain line and drain the wash tub. This will minimize any potential mess you may have to clean up.
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
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.

You can drain the water by pulling the drain hose end from where it is installed and draining the water into a basin. Position the basin as low as possible to extract as much water from the machine.
The water inlet valve is likely stuck in the open position when it fills when the machine is turned off.
The bottom front panel can be removed by removing the three screws securing it to the bottom front edge of the washer then lift the panel slightly and pull it forward.
