I have a Whirlpool Duet front loader GHW9160pW4. I just changed

This answer was rated:

I have a Whirlpool Duet front loader GHW9160pW4. I just changed a leaking corrugated drain boot and forgot to put the big ping pong ball back in the boot. The washer is working just fine after a half dozen loads. Question should I go to the effort to put the ball back in or can I forget it? Comment - it may be a back flow preventer, but there is a hole passage way around the ball that does allow some flow around the ball under any circumstance.
