Question about Whirlpool GHW9400 Duet Washer
How difficult is it to replace a broken rear counter weight with a new one. I am no expert but I am technically inclined. Does the rear panel have to be removed or is it sufficient to remove the bracket along the top that holds the wires and electronic module to gain access to the attachment bolts of the rear counter weight. Are there any special tools needed?
Any help is very much appreciated.
Thank you very much,
This is a simple repair. All that should be required is to remove the back panel to access the counterweight. I've performed this repair on several occasions. Loosen the bolts that sandwich the weight between the mounting plates and the whole weight should slide out of its mounted position on the back of the tub. Insert the new weight by sliding it in place and then re-installing the mounting plates and bolts. Tighten until snug. Do NOT overtighten as you may crack the weight. I hope this helps you.
