Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have just replaced the inlet valves for my Whirlpool AWM5100 front load washer and it is still not filling up with enough water to do a load of washing. I have checked all the hoses for blockages and they are fine, and the taps are working fine as well. Does anyone know what else could be causing this?

Your pressure switch controls the water level.

Is this machine new to you? or ?

Front loader use less water. the water level will be close to the bottom of the door.

Let me know if you have any more questions.,

Whirpool awm5100 machine not getting rid of washine powder in despenser only filling water alittle then stopping cycle


The most likely fault is the water inlet valves are blocked or only partially opening , pull off the pipe coming from the inlet valves and put the machine into cycle the flow of water should be full of the pipe and at mains water pressure, if this is not the case replace the inlet valves. Thanks tk

Not enough water supply F8E1 in a front load washer


Long fill error code if you have flood safe water hoses replace with regular hoses, this may sound stupid but I have seen this in the field make sure water is turned on, other possible reasons bad inlet valve or no power to valve from control, front load washers are notorious for rubbing a hole in the tube that goes to the pressure switch this switch is what tells the control to output power to the inlet valve also make sure the drain hose hasn't fallen to the floor. Quickest way to eliminate some things start with an empty washer after door locks unlocks and locks again the basket will rotate a few times then water should enter the machine fill to a level in the the basket that is barely above the bottom holes in the bottom then stop this eliminates control and inlet valve , if unit continues to fill and you get water half way up the door glass probably a hole in pressure switch tube I very seldom see a pressure switch go bad hopes this helps.

Thw washer fills with water when off


The inlet valve is faulty and you have to replace it. It is located on the right side of the machine viewed from the rear where the fill hoses are attached to.Turn-off the water supply, unplug the machine and do the following:

  1. Remove the three screws holding the top panel in place.
  2. Disconnect the hoses and electrical connections to the water inlet valve.
  3. Remove the mounting screws holding the water inlet valve.
  4. Reinstall the replacement valve.
  5. Reinstall the hoses and the electrical connections.
Replacement valve part number for Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P front load washer is 906483.

Water filling to washing level when washer is not being used.


sounds as if you have a bad inlet water vavle, it doenst complety shut off after use, and waer will trickle in( adding up to quite a bit in a day) youll need to replace the water inlet valve(directly behind themachine where the hoses hook into). in the meantime turn off water inbetween uses

Whirlpool Duet washer fills with water by itself


sounds like a faulty water inlet valve, not seating properly after closing the valve.replacing the valve is the only solution to this problem, in the meantime you can turn off your water supply in between doing loads.

not a bad habit to get into!!!!
