Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
We've had this machine since it came out- what, 5 years? A couple of months ago, it started with the beeping, error flashing and the water wouldn't drain so I'd run the drain cycle after a normal wash. (Only HE detergent, etc.)
Today, it wouldn't spin and soaked. I can spin with my hand (or could...)
We unplugged the machine b/c it would not respond to ANY button. Once we plugged it back in, it remained sitting- not spinning and not responding to all buttons. (Cancel, Start)
Final time- unplugged. Plugged back in. Pressed Start (showed "16". Pressed Cancel. I go to open the door (other times it was locked and wouldn't let me) now the HANDLE breaks off!
My son is leaving on an overnight class trip TOMORROW- with many of his items in there. Then I leave out of state for vacation on Thursday- think Whirlpool will pay me a visit in under 24 hours?
Cost of parts and labor (I'm not handy- don't know of one who is)... vs. Cost of buying new... better to go new? Or no?
Remove bottom panel from bottom rear to location of lock small teardrop shape pull down to release door lock...if a humming noise is heard when start button is pressed pump may be stuck or something jammed in it with panel off and after dipping as much water out as possible turn knob looking part on pump front to left expect flood but can't be helped clean pump trap and ck pump impeller through hole in trap on right side be sure impeller turns frss
