In Topic: Whirlpool Duet GHW9200L F9 code -- search results already tried

So 5 loads of laundry later no F9 code.


The intermittent nature of the issue is the most perplexing.


I haven't checked the pressure hose yet.  Did a bunch of other chores since it was cooperating today.

Start by checking the pressure switch.  You can do this right at the pressure switch connector on the CCU, page 5-2 in the Job aid.  You're looking for the connections called out there to be made at the different fill levels in drum.


You can check the water inlet valve by seeing if it's still letting water in when the voltage to it is cut off.  You can check the voltage either right at the valve or on the water inlet valve connector on the CCU, page 5-3 in the Job Aid.  


I had checked the pressure switch at empty and level 1.  It ohm'd out at 0 ohms (the correct reading) at both readings testing the appropriate test points.  I didn't know how to test for Suds detect or overflow, so unless I catch the machine in the F9 condition again, I don't know how to do it.  


For the water inlet solenoids, they both checked out a 800 ohms (the correct reading) at the appropriate test points.  You mentioned voltage check, but my job aid only talks about resistance values.


Info I forgot to include in my original message:  The F9 condition only happens during the rinse cycle.  We use 'extra rinse' a lot b/c my wife has sensitive skin and any soap residue causes problems...  Don't know if the extra rinse button changes anything other than an additional rinse cycle.



Check the pressure hose for  a hole????


I have not done this.  I guess just disconnect from the pressure switch and gently blow or suck on it and see if there is resistance?  I have a vacuum gauge pump thing for car repair, I could use it if that makes more sense.  What do you think?

Possibly a water inlet valve or main board.  sounds like the water valve stays on, thus water 1/4 over the window.  These machines I have seen my self still filling up even though the pressure switch is disconnected.  That's why I think its not the switch.


Ok, so it is parts changing mode time?  I ohm'd the cold and hot water valve solenoids and they both ohm'd out at ~800 ohms, right on spec.  I've replaced the front panel a few years ago.  Is the CCU the main board that is bad if it isn't the water inlet valve?


Maybe I'm thinking of the wrong thing.  Do you mean the flowmeter?  I see a water inlet on the diagram with the front of the cabinet off, but I don't see anything labelled "water inlet valve".


Thanks for clarifying things for me.

Well, following Samurai's instructions and installing the mounts on the oven chassis sides did the trick. Now, why didn't I do that the first time? One big reason: fear of pulling the oven out -- turned out to be 100x easier than I thought it would be and there was never any tilting or other uncomfortable feeling that the oven might 'fall out', etc.

Everything is back to normal and the oven door closes just fine now.

Thanks for all the help!

You stated you installed the hinges, what about the receivers? The part that mounts to the oven side chassis. That is usually what bends. There was a kit made that included a Hinge and receiver because they recommend changing both out at the same time as the Samurai did in his post.

I did not change the receivers. I guess that's the next step.
