Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool Model GHW9100LW1 leaks water during spin and drain cycle. I have already cleaned the drain pump filter and it still leaks. Notice small holes on the inside of the boot. Is this causing the water leak? Do I need to replace this can I repair it? Thanks.

    Thanks. From all of the posts and reading the Duet Job Aid it looks like I do not need to remove the front panel. Would it be easier if I do to replace the Boot? For a temporary fix, would a bike inner tube repair kit work for the holes before I get the replacement boot? There are only a few small holes less than 1/2 inch in diameter on the inside of the boot. There are no holes on the outside of the boot. I'll try this and post an update if it works.

    It may hold for awhile, but I am sure more holes will pop up on the seal. Keep me up to date!

    We tried the heavy duty wash with spin cycle at medium speed this morning before the patch and it did it leak. I patched the 5 holes this evening and tried another load at normal wash with medium speed spin and no leaks. Did a spin and drain with high speed and no leaks. Wife will try normal wash tomorrow with high speed spin and see.

Machine lacked about 23 minutes in cycle, it stopped with lights flashing. It will not drain, therefore cannot spin. It just beeps whenbi try to start it again.


Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

Our whirlpool sport will not drain, 5d code has appeared. what can we do


SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE WASH CYCLE)

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
Possible Causes/Procedure
• If too much detergent was used:
- Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
- Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent,
• This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

Washer stopped during spin cycle


Hello, try to checked the pump filter, and the pump is actually working. then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump works fine then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Thanks

Hi there... My Whirlpool Duet washer has recently sprung a leak! It leaks a small stream of water out of the bottom left side (as you would look at it from the front) and runs down the stand to the floor....


I had the exact same problem on my Whirlpool front loader (model# GHW9100LW1). It turned out to be a tear in the rubber drain hose (from tub to pump). There seemed to be some debris caught up in the drain hose, and what really did the damage was a piece of metal wire that broke off one of my wife's bra straps and made a nice tear in the hose. The washer leaked out of the left side as well and down the pedestal. The drain hose only ran about $13.00. To get to the hose you will have to remove the front tub seal (bellow) and the panel just above the pedestal. While you're in there it would be good to clean out the filter cap for the drain pump as well. Good luck!

Whirlpool Duet not functioning during spin cycle.


In front of the machine below the door you have a panel. There are 3 torx screws holding it from under. Unscrew and pull panel down & then towars you. You will see the pump assembly right in the centre big black hoses.

You need a pair of pliers & a shop-vac if you have one, or towels & a bucket. Use the pliers to unscrew the pump filter, it is white in colour. When you unscrew this water will begin to leak out; use towels or shop-vac to mop up. Do this till all the water is mopped. Remove the drain trap completely, you will find all sorts of junk, clean out completely & refit carefully, in reverse order.

Hope u appreciate this, u can rate me........

Repairing the Water Pump


The error code occurs if the pump does not drain within (I believe) 8 minutes. With the tub empty, you have no resistance from anything to obstruct the flow of water. With the tub full, its going to put a bit more strain on the pump to extract water. If the pump motor or impeller are damaged, it may be just enough to cause the pump to run slow enough while the tub is full and cause the error code. If you have already verified all the drain lines to be clear, and have no drainage issues with your household plumbing, the manufacturer recommends you replace the drain pump.

Go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the model number you provided. The pump will be located under the "Pump and Motor" heading as item number 10 (part #280187). It is only sold as a complete unit.

If you need instructions on how to replace the pump, please read this link:

I hope this helps answer some of your questions/concerns. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only


Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
