Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I have a whirlpool duet washer and for some reason the water seams to be running in the washer. I have to drain it all the time? its leaking out the top of the washer where the water goes in to the washer to be washed. how do I fix this?
It sounds like you have a defective water inlet valve. This is where your fill hoses connect to the back of the washer. The valve usually has two electrically operated solenoid valves (one for hot, one for cold). These solenoids can go bad and cause the valve to leak by. The valves can also become clogged with sediment and not close properly, also causing leak by. If you have hard water this could be the case. Also, low water pressure can sometimes cause these valves not to seat properly. A minimum of 10-25 psi is required at the taps. If you've never had a water pressure issue in the past, I would doubt this to be your problem. You can try cleaning the valve to see if this helps. But, if you're going to go through the trouble of removing the valve to clean it, you might as well replace it so you don't have to repeat the process later.
To access, the valve you will need to remove the top panel of the washer by removing the three screws that hold it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the top will slide back, then off. The fill valve will be located on the left hand side in the rear of the washer.
If you desire to replace it, a new valve can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your complete model number in the Search window and look under the "Dispenser Parts" heading for item number 1 (part #8181694).
If you need instructions on how to replace the valve, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
