#253121 Whirlpool Duet GHW9150PW0 water drip into tub

Posted by ddunk1946 on 26 April 2013 - 09:13 AM

Update: Speaking of unplugged...when Herself returned home, I told her of the events and that I would get another valve, etc. When I got home the next day, I noticed that the drip had stopped. When I mentioned this to her, she allowed as how she had unplugged and plugged the washer.(no mean feat as they are up on pedestals and the back edges are under wall cabinets). When asked how she arrived at that, she said that whenever her fax at the office (a big Savin color printer/copier/fax server) acted up, she had to do the same and reboot it.

Sheesh. Go figure.

#252752 Whirlpool Duet GHW9150PW0 water drip into tub

Posted by ddunk1946 on 21 April 2013 - 06:08 PM

With the mem sahib (the Mrs.) out of town and me trying to be a good hubby, I took a small blanket that she had washed (we can't have anything nice; we have cats!) out of the washer to dry it, I noticed that there was about a gallon of water in the tub and a slight drip out of the water inlet. Thinking that the blanket had been out of balance, I set it to spin and in 12 minutes, it was dry enough to put in the dryer.


End of story, or so I thought. Just now, I looked at the washer and it is still slightly dripping and has water in the tub. This washer has been running fine since 2009 when I replaced the logic/circuit/mother board. I'm guessing the problem now is the water inlet valve. There's just the two of us so it's not like it's on all the time. Well, us and whatever things need washing that the cats arfed up on... :blinky:


BUT, since this same weekend, I replaced a flush valve on a slow-filling toilet upstairs that turned out to have a largish piece of dislodged rust in the line and bits in the flush valve, I'm wondering if the same fate hasn't befallen the water inlet valve on the washer.


I thought I'd run this by the group to see if my analysis held any water. (no pun inteded). I don't now if they can be cleaned like a dishwasher inlet valve but I would rather order one and have it handy in case it needs to be replaced.


What say you?


Many thanks!
