Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool wont start

Hi Recently bought a second hand frontloader Whirlpool 5.5kg. The machine will fill up with water for about a minute then stop again. The cycle wont start, and all I can do is set it to drain and it works. I turned it off for 5 minutes for it to reset itself, and when you open the door the machine has partially filled with water. The lock is working fine, and I cant seem to find any knobs or levers anywhere that might be of use. Hope someone can help!

How to drain water from 5,5kg twin tub

Most machines have an inspection port at the bottom where you can access the drain pump and filter. Bale out as much as you can from the drum by hand, if you can open the door. Open the inspection cover and slowly loosen the pump/filter until the water dribbles out into a shallow tray.

Hey I want to know how to fix my whirlpool frontloader showing error f8 when I turn it on a couple of seconds like no water going through the tube and f8 comes up help please.

Hi Takai
Don't know the Machine or the Code but...
To start a washing machine cycle... the water should start filling the machine.
So...Is the Tap turned on? Can you hear the Water hose Solenoid Click In (to open the water valve)? Is water flowing?
If not... here is where you would start tracing the problem.
(Very similar to your Lawn Sprinkler Solenoid... the only difference is 24v AC vs 110 or 240V AC)
Most washing machine problems occur because of the many mechanically actuated switches and solenoid valves. The Electronics is usually good. When a switch doesn't respond it is picked up by the electronic controller & displayed as an error code on the front.
(CAUTION.... 110 to 240VAC is lethal especially around water)
So.... if you don't have the ability to remove the cover & check for faults you will probably want to call the qualified washing machine repair guy.

My whirlpool frontload washer does not have enough water to wash or rinse properly

1. do you have limescale in your source water, if yes you need to clean your machine with a special product that can be found in the market.
2. pressure sensor is broken
3. inlet filter is dirty you can unscrew the inlet pipe and look for a small filter and clean it.

Westinghouse SB907 - Water draining out right after filling up

The drain hose has to have a loop in it. In other words as the drain hose exits the dishwasher, it must go up at least 18 inches before it goes down into the drain. If not, the water will siphon out of the machine.
