Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Rust in the rinse chamber

The rinse chamber inside the rubber door seal there are 5 drain holes and staining from rust. We had the door seal replaced 6 months ago? I don't know if it is hard water causing the rust or if the seal was not installed properly. We never had this problem before the seal was replaced? Let me know what you think and thanks for your help!

If you have iron in your water there's little doubt that's what's causing it.

How to stop water from coming in the passenger floor board


That depends upon the cause of the water. There are a few possibilities, depending upon the vehicle. See this list and use what applies as a way to narrow down the source.

1. Rust hole in floorboard. Only way to fix is to repair hole.
2. Leaking door seal on passenger side. Locate and repair leaking seal.
3. Leaking sun/moon roof. Some vehicles that have these run their drain lines down the passenger side door pillar and down thru the floor pan. Sometimes the hose shrinks with age or breaks and allow water to get on to the floor. Remove the passenger side kick panel and inspect and repair as needed.
4. Leaking heater core. Feel and smell the water. If it smells like antifreeze or has an oily feel, it may be coolant leaking from the heater core. Of course there should be a loss of coolant associated with this problem. Here the only solution is to bypass or replace the heater core.
5. Leaking windshield seal. Most car windshields today are glued into place. These glue joints can break loose and allow water to leak. Also, rust can form around the windshield seal and cause rust holes that can leak. Lastly, extremely high-powered car stereo systems that pump mega-bass can cause overpressure inside the vehicle that can cause the seal of the glass to separate.

Rain water gets trapped inside the two rear doors and takes several days to drain. What problems will this cause and how can I fix it?


There should be a drain hole between the door rubber (seal) and outside edge of the door. These holes are most likely blocked and you need to unblock these with a piece of wire.
If you leave the water in there rust will form in the seam of the door and spread.

Painting the outer edges of the interior of a refrigerator..where the door seals meet the interior


Most likely not rust. You would see rust stains. IF you do repaint it, make sure that it is clean and dry. Oil or contaminates can cause the problem that you are describing.

My1999 Chrysler concord front drivers floor boards get wet every time it rains and I don't know were its coming from please help


water gets in past the membrane under the inside door trim, from blocked drain holes under the door, from rust holes in the phylum chamber at the bottom of the windscreen. If you had work done on the doors then the membrane has not been properly sealed up after the job.

Clothes stained and mold growing on rubber ring inside, constant odor despite using monthly washer clean tablets, leaving door open and draining water out of washer


Use a mixture of bleach and water in a spray bottle to kill the mold. Leave door open after washing. Also spray your drum and rinse unloaded to kill the mold on the inner drum.

Mildew smell


PLEASE KKEP IN MIND THAT THE MAYTAG NEPRUNE FRONT LOAD WASHER IS WHAT GOT MAYTAG IN TROUBLE!!!!!!
Whirlpool bought MAYTAG about 3 year ago.

THe mold is because of the rubber boot in the front of the door. PLEASE check to see if the rubber seal has a small hole in the lower bottom of the seal to let small portions of water drain out. If you DO NOT have this small hole, you need to replace the rubber boot with one that has a hole.
NOW, WORD TO THE WISE and this is what I tell ALL FOLKS that have a FRONTLOAD WASHING MACHINE:
AFTER you washer in the washer LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN so that the washer can ventilate and remove any moisture that is within.
ALSO, every 2 months, get a WHITE CLOTH with WARM WATER and a littl;e bit of BLEACH and CLEAN THE RUBBER BOOT!!!!!!

Brown stains in the drum of my whirlpool dryer


Apparently a common problem with 4-5 year old Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers. The paint is rubbed off the back panel by the felt seal attached to the rotating drum. The bare metal gets rusty from the damp clothes. The rust is rubbed off by the felt seal. The entire felt seal will turn brown. The stains are transfered to the clothes. The rust stains can generally be removed by additional cleaning.
I'm going to replace the felt seal on the drum, clean the rust off the back panel and see how long it lasts. Seal w/ adhesive is $30-40.
Some have suggested painting the back panel, but i don't think fresh paint is going to last long. The original paint was probably electrostatically applied and maybe baked on.
