Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

We have a 5 year old front load whirlpool duet washer that leaks & floods and has since we bought it. We had it replaced within a year of purchase, but it continues to leak & flood even with a new machine. A repairman came to fix this issue about 3 years ago. He spoke directly with whirlpool to get assistance. He caulked somewhere which temporarily fixed the leaking & flooding. It went down to a minimal dripping and puddling. Now however the caulk must have worn and it is back to a full flooding. Please help as my patience are wearing extrememly thin with this appliance. Thank you.

Due to the fact that you have had two different machines with the same problem seems to rule out a problem with the machine itself. Inspect the drain system that the machine discharges into. I have seen washers that have pumps which can overwhelm the house drain--the cure was to increase the machine's drain spout outer diameter with duct tape until it was a tight fit into the house drain. This prevented water overflowing from that point. The better cure would be to increase the drain pipe size, but that can get pretty expensive. Hope this helps!

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?


Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

Duet front load - water fills while door is open!


This is a leaking solonoid valve.
The valves are located just inside the machine where the water supply hoses attach.
  • Remove the power plug
  • Undo the top lid of the washer
  • The valves will have some internal pipes clamped on their outlets. Remove the pipes.
  • Dry the valve outlets with tissue.
  • Turn on the water supply to the washer (if it was off)
  • Watch the open valve outlets for seepage.

There may be between 1 and 3 valves depending on the model.
You should be able to replace the leaking valve quite easily.

Pull the kick panel under the door and when it leaks, you will be able to tell where from. Hopefully not the tub.

Our front load Whirlpool washer is about 9 years old and it leaks water onto the floor every time we use it. Can this be repaired and how costly is it fix?


I have a duet sport whirlpool two years old. The hose from the dispenser to the tub is frayed and broken allegedly due to worn out shocks (after two years?) The repair guy says $289 to fix a hose. Unbelievable! Could it be a design issuue?

Leak


Hi, If you remove the lower half of the front panel, you will be able to see the pump and hoses. Another option is the bellows around the door. Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Thank

Whirlpool duet squeaks


you can call whirlpool at 800-253-1301 and they will set up and recommend a service company that is authorized to repair your unit. just let them know its less then a year old and they will get you taken care of.
squeaks are hard to find, but you need to get it set up before your warranty runs out.

Leaking


Flooding like that usually means a bad drain hose or bad hose connection either at the bottom of the basket or at the drain pump. Need to check both.
