Whirlpool Duet GHW9150PW0 water in drum, stinky cloths

I have water in the washer between the plastic drum and the stainless drum. I have removed the pump and cleaned out any debris in the filter. I have run the unit through several cycles and all seems to work well, but at the end of the cycle, I can shine a flashlight through the stainless drum and see water laying in the bottom. I assume that this water laying in the machine is what is making the unit stink and is making my cloths stink. I have not had any error codes and have always used HE detergent. I also leave the door open after cycles to air it out. My main concern is this little bit of water that is left at the end of the cycles. Is there a sensor that should tell the unit to drain down more? Thanks for your help. Kent

I read this in some guys blog, he was having the same problem with his Duet and said that adding water to each cycle solved the problem without having to use any chemicals. He's working on an easier way to do this, his solution was quite complex but he did post a solution that someone sent him that seemed to work and may work for you. I'll attach the "URL" for his site. Hope this will help.

Whirlpool duet washer will not drain or spin, keeps making a rumbling noise, what can I do?


Hello Randall;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I have a Whirlpool Duet clothes washer. They are nice units. The information following is based on my model number GHW9150PW0.

You do not have a drain problem. I am more concerned with the rumbling noise.

1.) On both the front and back end of your drum you have a spring loaded counterweight. It is possible you have a broken spring.

Your should also check out your drive belt. At a high speed it may be slipping.

The above will effect your independent motor control located inside the washer, located inside your unit.

The water runs up out of the soap dispenser and not in the drum


Try removing the dispenser drawer and with the door open pour some water into the dispenser housing and see if it runs into the drum, if it DOES run into the drum the you have a dispenser housing issue.if it DOES NOT run it to the drum their is a plastic pipe that runs from the dispenser housing to the rubber boot that lets the water into the basket,a few times I have seen these get cloged with a item of clothing preventing water from draining into the washer Good luck

Check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Duet washer is stinky.I leave the tub door and the soap dispenser door open when not in use. Even so, epecially after doing several loads in a row I have a very stinky machine There is mold growing on the...


are you on a well??
do you use bleach in with your whites??
some well water untreated can cause exceptionally stinky machines, especially if no or very little bleach is used during white washing..
usually if you use bleach in with your whites in normal amounts and leave the door open in between uses there should be very little stinky odor or mold growth.
the mold growing on the gasket is a sign of to little bleach or none being used, and/or a really damp environment for the unit to reside in.
they do make several cleaners designed just for stinky front loader washers..
they might help..
i've been using a front loader for 13 years, leave the door ajar between uses, and use bleach in every white load and have had no issues with stinky unless i or someone else doing wash forget and close the door for a couple days, then it gets stinky but goes away after white load with bleach and hot water..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Stinky washer


I have the same problem. The solution is to use bleach with your whites. It's better to use a normal amount of bleach frequently rather than a lot of bleach only once in a while.

Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell. Good luck!
