Whirlpool Duet Steam Front Load Washer Wfw9750ww01 Code F27 And F21

The error F27 and/or F21 only appear to happen when washing on warm or hot, it does not occur on cold. Assumed it is the water inlet valve, ran the diagnostic and cold cycle water stopped running after warm cycle water never stopped running through C:08 finally cancelled cycle. I am assuming the hot in the water inlet valve is bad, any other options before I spend the money ordering the part?

The only other possbility would be an issue with the hot water circuit on the main board but that's unlikely so it's safe to assume it is the valve. The valve for your model is linked below.

WFW9200SQ00 Is my model. My washer has water constantly being pumped into the washer, like it would if I were to run it. But it’s off and hasn’t been used in almost 7 days.

The water inlet valve is bad and needs to be replaced. The valve you need for that model can be ordered from the link below:

Had been getting F21 error messages, had drain pump replaced; now getting F27 message. Washer 10y old. No problems until this. Was told washer could last another 5+yrs, don’t want to spend more to fix if better to replace.
