Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Open Question

My daughter has a 5- or 6-year old Whirlpool WSW 8300SW05 front loading washer that has performed well until recently. Both Sears and a well-known local repairman have been out to see why this machine is leaking from the front door. Both inspected the rubber boot...there are no obvious tears. The second tech even went so far as to take the front door apart and tighten screws. He was able to squeeze some water out when he pressed on the front of the door (at the bottom) and the inner part of the door at the same location. He cycled the unit and no leakage was noticed. But when he left and I ran a full load of clothes, water again came out. The amount was probably near a cupful, enough to make a mess on the floor and drip into the storage area under the stand. Please help !!

SOURCE: Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer

most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.

I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

SOURCE: Door locked on compact Whirlpool front-load washer

This worked for me. I turned off the washer and hit the area on the washer directly to the right of the door handle (not hard enough to break something or cause a dent). It popped right open.

I have a Kenmore Series 70 top loading wash machine that leaks. It is approx 12 years old, model 110.4767290 (canadian). It has a 2 inch crack in the bottom of the plastic tub. I tried filling with expoy...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

The numbers following the 110 (which means it's made by Whirlpool) are usually 8 digits. Using the number that you provided, I couldn't find your washer on the Sears site. You will want to verify the number (usually by lifting the lid) and/or check for manuals / parts site from the following Sears site:

http://www.managemyhome.com/

Sears has replacement tubs (at least for my 12 year old top load for about $116.75 (U.S.) but you may be able to get one from Whirlpool for about the same cost. If you can get to the diagrams on the sears site. they often have "Manufacturer Authorized Substitutes) which are Whirlpool numbers.

FOR EXAMPLE, SEE THE SITE FOR OUR WASHER AND YOU'LL SEE EXAMPLES OF PARTS, DIAGRAMS AND COSTS.

I can't find my owner's manual and my Kenmore front load washer is stopping in the middle of the wash cycle and flashing F-30. Don't know what to do. The washer is one year old.


First, see the following Sears Parts site.

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you should see a list of sub-components.

On many washers, to the right of the components is a place where you can click and see PDF versions of the owners manuals.

If the Sears site doesn't have your owners manual, you may try looking at the following Whirlpool maintenance manual for front load washers.

He5t Kenmore ELITE front load washer flashing f35 code


Hi, Both of these fault codes point to a pressure switch issue. If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch. With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions. If the fault codes return after diong this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch. If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to comment again, Good luck.

The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.
