Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Whirlpool error code F20 appears when no water is detected entering the machine or if the pressure switch trip is not detected. The pressure switch is the part of the machine that monitors high water pressure. The washing machine automatically cancels the wash cycle during an F20 error. Wonder if it has additional issue since it won’t stop quality Appliance repair Stuart Internet answer.

Hi mrcooperdog,
The diagnostics for a front loader is pretty simple. I have enclosed a link to a similar machine.
Watch it carefully and do it afterwards.
Good luck!

Error F31 in your whirlpool duet washer is displayed due to MCU (Motor Control Unit) failure. It is displayed if the heat sink gets too hot and then the MCU stops motor, then MCU sends the signal to CCU (Central control unit). Please check the wire connections between the CCU and MCU, if thats fine then check the motor operation. Hope you understand...replacing the part# that has gone bad is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Try looking online for another manual. Or call anyone who sells your machine. Me thinks the solution is simple, but you need to talk to any seller of your machine, and soon.

Could be the drum bearing worn. If the seal has degraded then you could be getting rust from the bearing in the drum water

the only thing you can do is to go to the manufactures website and download the user manual and check the trouble shooting guide for a possible cause for this problem eric

F28 code with no red light showing for the locked door. The washer would lock the door and then become stuck in the locked position. I had to reach up and pull the latch release manually to get it to open, but then the same thing would happen. I eventually could feel another wire was up inside there and not connected to anything. I had to remove the top of the washer along with the door and door trim ring. Then removed the front control panel (the front panel swings out from the left side and is more or less kind of hinged on the right. Dont swing it too far just enough to pull it straight out after the left side is 4 to 6 inches out. Leave it plugged in and set it on top of the washer) I then removed the screws to the steel front panel that is around the door. Remove the latch and pull it out the right side just enough to get at the broken wire and the clip it came out of. I soldered the wire back onto the clip and reassembled the washer. It is working great now. Hope that helps someone else. I was almost ready to buy some expensive parts that would not have fixed the problem in my case.
Good luck!

Have you tried running a cold wash? Could be a heating fault. If it runs a cold wash fine then id go with that as a starting point

You will need to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door to gain access to the inside cabinet to see where the leak may be coming from. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the washer up with something (a 2x4 works well for this) will give you better access to the screws.

The most common source of leakage on this washer is the rubber bellow around the door. It can develop cracks or tears over time and require replacement. A tell-tale sign is the front counterweight (looks like a concrete block on the front of the wash tub) looking wet. The counterweight will remain dry if the tub is sealed properly. From the inside of the washer, pull the rubber folds back on the door bellow and inspect the perimeter for any rips or tears. If the bellow is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:


If the bellow is intact, check the rear bellow seal where it connects to the front of the wash tub. If the clamp comes loose the bellow can shift and begin to leak. Tighten if necessary.

Check the drain pump and hoses to ensure they are not leaking. The drain pump is directly in the front under the wash tub.

Check the area directly below the wash tub. If the leak is coming from the wash tub iteself, you may have a bad tub seal. A replacement gasket doesn't cost much at all, but the labor involved is extensive.

Another simple problem is the dispenser tube(s) that come through the door bellow. Sometimes, these small tubes will work their way behind the rubber in the door and leak when the washer attempts to fill or rinse. This is a simple matter of adjusting the tubes to ensure they are seated through the door gasket properly.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

NOTE: You can refer to searspartsdirect.com for some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer for reference in locating components.

Could be the infamous bearing failure

Whirlpool Duet... | Answered on Jan 05, 2018 | 218 views

all I can say to that is if you arrange the bath rugs in a balanced way so they are equally distributed then the problem should go away eric

Whirlpool Duet... | Answered on Dec 29, 2017 | 263 views

go to the manufactures website and download the user manual its normally a free download and look in the problem shooting section eric

Condition: Lid not opened between loads
Check/Repair: The main electronic control board doesn't detect the lid opening between loads. Unplug the washer and check the wiring connections between the lid lock/switch and the main electronic control board. If the wiring connections are okay, replace the lid lock/switch.

Front loaders are bad about that. It needs to be inspected internally for damaged or worn shocks, springs and weights. Some have liquid counter balances. If you post the model number, I may be of more help.

I would get in touch with a washing machine repair person as I believe what you may have either a bearing disintegrating or the spider, the contraption that holds your drum horizontal and allows it to spin,may be corroding. It's called a spider, it's aluminum, and it's got only three legs but when those legs break, the plastic drum and other expensive things often suffer damage as well.

We had this experience this spring with an Inglis washer which is a sister set to the Whirlpool Duet. If the spider is corroding or a bearing is going, and changed before it breaks, it will likely save you about $600 on your repair bill. Remember to compare any repair cost against the cost of a new unit including the age difference. Washing machines only last 7-10 years now... they just aren't built like they used to be.
