Question about Whirlpool GHW9400 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

120 volts 50 hz

I am using the washing machine, but it does not complete all of the cycles, once it gets to the rinse/spin (and the timer shows 1 minute left,) it stays there and never changes to the last cycle of drain/spin. I suspect that has something to do with the different electricity cycle as the washer in question is plugged in a line that while is 120 volts, it is 50Hz (is being used overseas.) I have been told that when the electricity cycles is different, it may retard the timer. If the electricity cycles is the problem, is there any solution?; if it is not the electricty, what could be the solution?

    Thanks for you reply, but transformers do not change the electricity cycles (see the following links for explanations:)

Hi the Electrical Requirements of this device: 15 OR 20 Ampere, 120 Volts, 60 Hertz (1/second). go to elctronics shop with these details and buy a transformer wich will translate your current Volt\ampere\frequency to what the device needs wich from what i understand needs higher frequency http://www.whirlpool.com/catalog/product.jsp?parentCategoryId=113&categoryId=115&subCategoryId=116&productId=218&view=2#tabs good luck

I need a night light timer that I can set to be on for 50 minutes and off for 10 minutes and repeat this every hour for 24 hours.

1) If you have programmable timer, then it would require 24 ON and 24 OFF settings, with down-to-the minute programming.
1 ON for each hour.
1 OFF for each hour.
Following link shows Grasslin 50-60 Hz 230Volt din rail timer with 50 memory slots. 16 amp at 230 volts
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/talento_371_372_371_mini_plus_data.pdf

2) If you have 24 hour mechanical timer with dial, it would need 24 ON trippers and 24 off trippers with down-to-the minute schedule.
No timer has that capability.

3) There is C8800 series cycle timer. 120-240Volt 60Hz for US market. 20 amp at 120volts, or 20 amp at 240Volt. Chose 1 hour cycle, then insert 100 trippers and leave 20 blank spaces.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/027-C8800-sprinkler-cycle-timer.pdf

4) There are percentage cycle timers.
For example CT2000. Rated 120Volts 60 Hz for US market.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/CT2000_sell-sheet-with-wiring.pdf
Select 1 hour cycle, and 16% or 84% percentage to choose ON or OFF

How can i change the power from 110 volt to 127 volt, jamaica is 110

Voltage is not the problem. The issue is a 60 hz machine in a 50 hz country. The fix is to buy a Jamaican washing machine.

My frigidaire front load washer will start a wash, complete the first cycle but then stop and flash all the lights and beep continously until I press "start" or "cancel". If I press "start" again it just...

Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

22432 won't spin or drain

CHECK THE LID SWITCH THE PART THAT PUSHES THE SWITCH DOWN MAY BE WORN ENOUGH TO CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. WITH THE LID OPEN START THE WASHER IN THE SPIN CYCLE AND PUSH THE SWITCH WITH A POPSICKEL STICK AND SEE IF THIS PROBLEM STILL HAPPENS

Spin/rinse cycle quits

it may be an intermittent door lock switch. i believe on your model when you remove the front access panel you will find a pair of wires in a plug with nothing attached to them on the r/h side where the wire harness runs. when you are in the spin cycle, check with a multimeter for 0 volts across the 2 wires. if you are showing 120 volts, then your door lock is bad. if yours has never been changed it actually has been updated to a new style. costs about $120.00 for the part. instructions should come with revised part
