Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
There are no error codes, the washer is off, but the water keeps slowly filling up in there. I just do the drain/spin cycle to get it out, but it just keeps filling up again.
Sounds like you need a new water valve (some debris inside the valve causing it to not fully close). These are availible from your local appliance parts store or on line from the manufacture. Once you have your replacement, just take the #20 torx screws out of the rear of the top panel slide the whole panel slightly towards the rear and lift it off. On the outside of the washer on the back panel, You should a light blue plastic thing that the 2 matching hoses from your house connect to. Turn your water off and remove these hoses. Just beside them you will find another #20 torx bit screw (some models use a #10 or #15). Remove this screw as well. Now from the inside of the machine, you will see 4 blue wires going into 2 connectors on the valve. Remove these connectors only by pulling on the connectors, not the wires. Lastly you will see a small black hose with a green or silver clamp on it. Squeeze the clamp with a pair of pliers and then slide it down the hose. The hose should now pull free of your old valve.

Most likely the water inlet valves on your washing machine have failed. You may have noticed larger amounts of water in the clothes drum when the washing machine hasn't been used for a few days, this is because the valves may still be open allowing water to drip into the clothes drum.

Your water fill valve is defective. This is a fairly common problem.
This video,while not specific to the water valve will show you how to remove the cabinet to access the water valve.
The water valve is the part the water hoses connect to.

Hello Lahoma, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer fills with water, will not drain completely, and is flashing an "E10" error code. The error code stands for your washer fill time is too long. This could be an issue with your water valve, main control, or water pressure. You should check to make sure that your water flow is normal and that your water line is not restricted. This could cause an issue with the way water is distributed within your washer. The water pressure coming into your washer should be at 30 PSI. You can also clear out any false error codes by performing a reset on your washer. In order to reset your washer you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help resolve your issue I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt
