Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Duet sport washer goes for a few minutes then stops and flashes F-20. usually does this on a normal/casual load. then washer locks up when we try to fix it and buttons don't work for awhile.
F20 is a "No water or insufficent water supply" error code. First make sure both of your valves from the house are turned all of the way on. Next make sure your fill hoses (the two macthing ones that go to the back of the washer) are not kinked. If both of these check ok, turn off your water supply and unscrew the hoses where they connect to the machine. There are 2 screens underneath that trap dirt and sediment so they don't get to your valves and cause them to run. If it's coated, rub the surface with a tooth brush or small flat head screw driver. Rinse with a little bit of water and repeat. If the screens are clear, check the hoses. Some hoses have the same kind of screens that can be on either end of the hose. If all of these fail, you'll probably need to replace your water valve. Remove the 3 #20 torx screws on the back side of the top panel. Push the lid slightly towards the rear and lift up and out of the way. Next, unplug the connectors going to your valve (should look like light blue plastic and the hoses were hooked to it). There will be a 1/4" screw on the back panel holding your valve in place. Once removed, you can slide the valve to the side and slide it out. The only part left is squeezing the clamp on the black rubber hose inside the unit to let the valve fully disconnect. While the water in this hose generally wont hurt anything, it also can't hurt to have a towel to catch the small amount of water in it. Replace the valve with one you've ordered online from the manufacture or purchased from your local appliance parts store. Re-assemble.

My two year old washer was consisitently stopping mid cycle and flashing this and other error codes. More intense scrutiny led me to believe it wasn't draining properly. I can't believe how simple this was to fix but not mentioned at all in the manual. Un plug the machine.Take off the front bottom panel by removing the three metal screw at the bottom of the panel, the front should then just pull out. Behind this you will find a trap that is designed to catch stuff before it enters the pump. Being prepared for a good deal of water, unscrew this and clean out the trap. Clean the threads and screw it back in. Then put the front back on. Voila. Your good to go for a few more years and you will be able to afford to go out to dinner with all the loose change you find in the trap. Why do they not mention this in the manual? Hoping for those lucrative service calls?
