You have a bad water valve on the washer.sediment gets into the valve,when the valve goes to close it can't from sediment inside it.change out the valve and you'll be fine.

    How do I get to the sediment valve

  • Sal DeAngelo May 23, 2011

    you have to shut off the water going to the washer,remove the two hoses and mark them so when you install the new valve you'll know how to hook up the water lines again.unplug the washer,remove the top of the washer,three screws in the back and you'll see the valve,there might be one screw holding the valve in place,just remove the screw,pull out the old valve and install the new valve the same way you took out the old one.it's a water valve not a sediment valve,the sediment is the dirt and rust in the water lines,sometimes it gets stuck inside the valve and damages it internally.

    also you have to remove the wires just remember where they go,it's just two harnesses that you pull off of the hot and cold solenoids. i think one is red and one is blue

Water flows constantly during the spin cycle


Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced.

My son put a load of laundry in and forgot the hot water heater was broke when he turned the machine on. It wouldn't run and the door is still locked. We tried unplugging it, holding the cancel butt


Remove the lower panel by taking out the screws at the bottom. Unplug washer. Then reach up inside to the bottom of the door switch and pull down on lever to unlatch the door. Try running machine again after plugging back in.

I have a whirlpool duet front load washer. when I put a load in on normal cycle, at some point it was flashing an H and an F on the display. Tried to pause it and unlock the door, but nothing happened....


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Whirlpool's 'FH' decodes as 'no water inlet'- I suspect 'Hot Fault'!
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Water is leaking out the soap dispenser.


Remove the soap dispenser and clean it throughly, next check the tube from dispenser to the tub to be sure it is clear of blockage. Run the washer with hot water to clear any residual buildup that may be left in it.

My towels always smell sour...it doesn't matter what detergent or fabric softener I use. I have the Whirlpool Duet front loading machine and dryer.


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.

Duet whirlpool washer has water in tub after non-use


Sounds like you need to check your water inlet valves and make sure that they are working properly. Inlet valves when the go bad will allow water to push through do to the water pressure just sitting there not doing anything. Try to figure out if the water is hot or cold. Or you can use a volt meter and see which on is not functioning properly
