Question about Whirlpool Gold Duet GHW9400P 3.8 Cu. Ft. Front-Loading Washer
I do not see my model listed, but my problems likely apply to the 9500 as well. We had our washer delivered a couple days ago. For some reason, the stacker unit was not on the truck, so our dryer is not yet stacked on top, but I hate to think what will happen when it is because the washer shakes like crazy. It's rocking and rolling like we're in an earthquake, but the other problem happened when I filled the dispenser. I know the liquid HE goes in the left side of the dispenser. But when I poured it in, it leaked out the bottom, down around the door and out the bottom of the washer. This washer sits on a 15 1/2-inch pedestal, which provides storage underneath. The detergent dripped under the door at the bottom and down the pedestal. I wiped up the mess and threw the rag in with the towels, so at least I know there was some kind of soap in the washer. This is the only load I have washed because I'm afraid to try it again. One thing, I did have the door of the washer open when I opened the dispenser to add the detergent. Does it matter if the door is opened? Is that what could have caused the soap to leak out of the dispenser? If that's the problem, then my problem is solved, and I will do another load filling only the dispenser after the door is closed. But there is nothing in the troubleshooting guide that addresses this problem. I assume the shaking might be caused because the Whirlpool delivery guys just dumped the washer on top of the pedestal and likely didn't level anything. When and if my stacker unit ever arrives, I will ask them to address when they put the dryer over the washer. But in the meanwhile, I would really like to do more laundry. Why is my dispenser leaking?
Ok try not to pull the dispenser too far out. When you pour the liquid detergent in the dispenser I belive it should say in the cup. For the shaking if the washer is not on a solid surface like a cement floor it will shake and walk if the floor is weak. Also make sure the delivery guys removed the 4 shipping bolts in the back. If the dispensor still leaks call for service bucause its new. Also some stores will exchange it if there is a problem within 30 days.
