Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Apparently my washingmachine filled up with water after i used it. it was off and i always leave the door open to prevent the smell of mold. so i need to clean or possible replace the valve in it? It not only filled up but it overflowed onto the floor and went all under the dryer as well as the rest to the floor. Thank you for any help you can provide

How to clean


The design of this unit always has water in the machine......turn the bowl by hand and you will hear the water. This is normal but allows the mold to form if the door is closed for an extended period of time. The best thing is to leave the door partially open if not using the machine

Tip

Stop Washing Machine Smell, Mold, and Mildew


Your washer is not smelling so clean and you wonder first why it is like this and then how can I fix it?

With the popularity of the front load washer and the low water usage associated with then comes other problems. Because of the low water consumption the dirt grime and residue that would normally be totally washed away, some is left as a film in the washer. Cold water usage can contribute to this by adding to this film. The make up of certain commercial fabric softeners and detergents can make the problem worse by giving the bugs food. Animal fats in some products are great food for the molds and mildew.

Some washers also let a bit of water lay in them after the wash this gives moisture which also helps to grow molds and mildew. When you close the door tightly after washing, this traps all the water in the washer and prevents the rubber door gasket, the soap dispenser, and other parts of the washer from drying out.

Here are some things you can do to prevent these problems.

Always leave the door to your washer open after use.
Leave the dispenser drawer open also.
Use liquid detergents instead of powdered, they will leave less film
Use the minimum detergent possible to get your clothes clean, more is not always better.
Use fabric softener sheets in your dryer instead of the washer liquid.
Check that ALL clothing is removed from the washer.
Periodically wipe down the rubber door gasket and check for mold or stuck socks
Use hot water when practical, like when washing whites. This will help remove the film.


If you have a problem here is what you can do to help fix it.

Wipe everything down with a solution of vinegar water.
Pour vinegar into the dispenser drawers. Then add ½ cup of vinegar to your washer and run through a clean cycle with hot water.


You can periodically add the vinegar to your wash load to help keep things under control. This will naturally disinfect and clean your washer while you are doing your regular wash. This is especially good to use if you will not be using your washer for a few days again. The residue of vinegar in the washer will help to control the smell and mold formation.

If you are buying a new washer, do some research before buying. Some machines are more prone to this problem then others. A bit of research may help you to aoivd the headaches of having a washer with this problem.

I have a he2t wash comes out smelling like mildew really tired of it please do not tell me to leave the door opened I do still smells


The trick is to clean the interior using regular detergent, baking soda, and hot water; run a complete cycle without any laundry in it. Wash the rubber boot where the door seals with same mixture at which point the interior should smell fresh and clean. Now is the time to leave the door open after use so that the remaining moisture can evaporate out to prevent mold growth. Hope this helps!

Awful smell! I drain it every cycle, I use the washer cleaner, everything! I am so sick of my towels smelling awful.


Sounds like the little flexible apron just in front of your washer drum has mildewed. Take a look and see if it is holding water, and look for mold while your'e at it. Use a good bathroom mold and mildew remover to kill the mess and deodorize it.

Foul odor from front load washing machine


Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .

There is a moldy smell....I have ran a load with no clothes and just bleach and it smelled ok for a week and now smells again


The odor that you are experiencing may be from the growth of mold. Inside the washer, some small pools of water may be left standing and is harboring mold spores. Even though you may operate the washer regularly, the mold spores are not being washed away.I have a couple of tips that might help to eliminate odor issues in your washing machine. First, and the most effective in my research is to, leave the lid, or door to the unit open. By leaving the door open, it promotes air circulation and evaporation of standing water. The reduction in odor, will occur quickly and dramatically.

My second tip is to run the washer empty for a quick rinse cycle. Add an entire cup of bleach at the start of the cycle. The bleach is effective at destroying organisms, such as mold and bacteria. However, running it once will not be completely effective. I suggest pouring another cup of bleach into the wash tub/basket, after the cycle has completed. This will leave bleach as the standing pool and should prevent the growth of mold or bacteria. However, if you do this, before doing a load of laundry you should run an empty rinse cycle again, to avoid damage to the clothes from the bleach left standing in the wash tub.

My Kenmore Elite He3 sounds like it has water in the tub after washing AND smells of MOLD?


there is always some water left inside the machine and that is probably what you are hearing are you using liquid detergent? if so this is almost certainly the cause of the smell. liquid detergent leaves a nasty slime inside thge machine and smells like drains. put on a boil wash with no clothes and revert to using powder detergent
