Hello again folks! :)

Our GHW9150PW0 seems to be filling with water between cycles. Based on research that I did on this forum, I understand that it may be a problem with the water inlet valve.

So I've got two questions:

  • Is there a diagnostic procedure I should go through to verify that it is the water inlet valve and not something else?
  • If it is the water inlet valve, can you point me to a schematic and (hopefully) describe what I need to do to replace it? Any 'gotchas' that I need to watch out for before I get to work? :unsure:

Un-plug Power Cord from Wall Outlet.
If water continues to enter, bad Water Valve.

The hot and cold water inlet valves are located at the back of the washer.

Many thanks! I've unplugged the unit and will check it in the morning.

I haven't responded to this topic for a while because the problem went away on the 29th, but it came back this morning. I'll try the "unplug" test again after this morning's load is done.

In the meantime, are there other test procedures I could try?

You need to replace the water inlet valve, that's a slam dunk. Go ahead and get the valve that Reg linked you to and let us know how it goes.

Unplugged it after the load and water leaked into the drum.

I ordered the valve. Many thanks! Will let you know how the install goes.

Replacing the water inlet valve in a Whirlpool Duet GHW9150PW0 washer

By Samurai Appliance Repair Man in Samurai Appliance Repair Man's Blog, on 28 March 2011 - 10:31 PM

Master Reg gives a simple and sure way to tell if you have a leaky fill valve that's letting water come into the drum when the washer is off. If you need water fill valve, you can buy it by clicking the picture below.
