Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
My Kenmore has been working fine for over 1 year. Now, when the washer is idle and not in use, the tub fills with water and gone unnoticed overnight, flooded the laundry room and adjacent hallway. When we checked inside the washer, it was still half full of water. It drains normally and washes normally. Any ideas? Thanks washer fills with water when not in use
I suspect you have a water inlet valve problem. When the valves fail, they tend to either leak by, or do not open at all. The symptom you are describing is typical of an inlet valve that is not closing properly. The leak may be minute, but over time, it fills the tub and over flows. To access the water inlet valve, you will need to remove the washer top panel. Remove the three screws in the back that hold the top in place and slide the panel straight back and lift off. The water inlet valve will be located on the left hand side in the rear between the fill hoses and the dispenser (as viewed from the front of the washer). If you wish to perform this repair yourself, you can find the part at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your complete model number and the part can be located on the next page under the "Dispenser Parts" section as item number one (part #8181694). The replacement process is very simple. Just turn off the water source, remove the fill hoses, the dispenser hose and the mounting screws. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
