20 Most Recent Whirlpool WFW9550WW Duet Steam 4.4 cu. ft. Front Load White Washer Questions & Answers

this job takes a little while to do. first pull off the bottom plate on the front. then take out the soap drawer. you will find a screw behind it that you remove then you have to carefully pry off the trim around the control nob and lift the piece off you will find another screw to remove. check at the bottom of door panel for any other screws. it would also be a good idea to take off the top of washer do that first.

then pull front panel out and up to remove be careful there are wires at the top that you don't want to pull apart. that happen to me but I was able to put the wires back into the connector but it was not easy. the below seal has a wire around the outer part of the door I forgot so take that off before you rremove the front. u can use a screw driver to pry it off. then front will come off and you will be able to see how the below seal is hooked to drum and pry that off. take out the seal and you will see that the filler connector is on the top right you will have to pull it out of seal. then you can install the new one. good luck

Bad tub baring or hopefully a cloged drain pump. If it is a tub baring it is going to cost a lot of money.

Good luck,

You're not gonna like this:

Pull the washer tub (see elsewhere on FixYa for step-by-steps), split the tub by removing the screws holding the two halves together, and remove the inner tub. Bend any tabs tighter that hold the fins on, and tighten any screws. While you have it apart, check for grease stains or other leakage on either side of the outer tub, and ensure the inner tub bearing is tight so that the inner tub shaft rotates smoothly and without oscillation. If there are stains or if the bearing is showing wear, replace that (back) half of the outer tub to replace the bearing (unless this is one of the few machines that allow you to replace only the bearing). You don't want to put all this back together, only to have to take it all apart again when the inner tub starts hammering on the inner tub because the bearing went south.

6 flashes is typically found with power vented and flue damper type heaters ... whirlpool never sold a power vent, but they did sell the AO Smith brand flue damper series heater.
The following manual suggest the problem is either gas supply or pilot assembly.

it is a WATER HEATER. you do not need to heat HOT water.
Gas or electric?
Electric = turn power on
Gas = instructions are on gas valve or in your manual.
does not light = verify a spark at burner when you push button (can be hard to see, turn off lights), verify gas valves are on and another appliance has gas, call for service.

Water heaters only have a top and bottom thermostats which seldom go bad. Heating elements wear out most often. If you are running out of hot water too quickly kill the power drain the tank and remove bottom heating element using a special large socket. Visual inspection should tell you if it is melted. If it is ok check the top heating element. If the heater was on and the tank not full the top element will go first. Elements never operate at the same time
