Question about Whirlpool GHW9100L Front Load Washer
Our Whirlpool Duet 9100 washer has an intermittant problem of water flowing back into the washer after a load is finishes and removed from the washer. We've tried emptying it by running an empty cycle and by running a drain and spin only cycle. Neither works. We've checked the position of the drain hose and it seems appropriate, the recepticle is 32" off the floor.
There is a back flow valve attached to the outlet port of the drain pump. It is just a small rubber flap. This sometimes comes loose or remains open due to debris and allows the water in the drain hose to flow back into the machine after the drain pump shuts off. It can be checked by removing the drain hose from the pump inside of the machine. You will lose all of the water in your machine (about 1/2 gallon)when you do this so be prepared with a bunch of towels.
