Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
My washer started leaking after it was about 15 months old. Just after the warranty expired.
It only leaks during this cycle, so far, but my washer is upstairs so I have concerns. I've adjusted the bleach amt. I can't not use this cycle because of the mold problem with these washers. I do use Affresh after the company sent the letter addressing this issue.
FYI, this is my second duet in 2 yrs! I'm not happy
The highest water fill cycle for your waher is the clean cycle.it will fill up with 2x the normal amount of water in this cycle than any other.look for a cut or wrinkle in your door boot(grey rubber outer ring that seals between door and boot)if you find one,only fix would be to replace door boot.also clean inner door glass that comes in contact with door boot ring,any hard water build up or sediment(dog,cat or human hair)will break the seal and allow it to leak.good luck

The leak is coming from the air vent holes located at the top of the machine. They are there to allow air back into the tub when water is being drained out. Poor engineering because the clean cycle uses much more water and is forced out these vents leaking all over the place. Whirlpool wont admit to the problem. Just a poor design.
