Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100 LW1 Front Loading

In the middle of the washing cycle, I get a "H F" signal. I unplugged the machine and turned off the breaker for 20 minutes, according to the directions. No luck. I had a service man out who told me I need a new water inlet valve. Does that sound correct?
Thank you.

It could very well be a water inlet valve, but there are several other things that may cause your problem. Please read the information I have about the "FH" error on the following link:

As you can see, you may need to rule out some other possibilities. Did your service man check all the other options? The easiest things you need to check is to make sure you don't have a siphoning issue, something clogged in the drain pump or lines, and dirty water inlet screens. These are the more common contributors to this problem. The pressure switch and flowmeter are less likely, but still should be checked. If need further assistance, please go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this sheds some light on the problem and helps resolve it for you.

I own a whirlpool duet ghw9100 lw1 and i have two problems...fabric softener wont dispense and the drum fills and overfows with water on occasion

The overfilling problem is due to the water valve allowing water to slowly seep into the machine when not in use. You simply need to replace the water valve. The first thing to do for the fabric softener is to clean the dispenser. Failing that you can remove the top of the machine to observe the correct movement of the zone valve for the dispenser.

Control lock on model ghw9100

Try pressing and holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button in for 3 seconds. This button is used to lock/unlock the control panel as a safety feature to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The instructions should be printed on the front panel near the button.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100 LW1 Front Loading

Probably a good assessment. I wasn't trying to second guess your repairman. I just wanted to make sure you were able to have the knowledge to eliminate some of the possibilities yourself. That way, you feel a little more confident that you're getting the correct repair. It sounds like the solenoid is probably clogged or scaled up from sediment. Let me know how things turn out for you.
