Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Rattling noise during high speed spin

My whirlpool duet washing machine rattles loudly during high speed spin. It has become progressively louder as it previously sounded like a repeating ticking sound (one tick per revolution which has now become two ticks per). The maching does not make any ticking or rattling sound when the drum is rotated by hand.

    Correction: The machine does make the same double ticking sound per revolution when the drum is rotated quickly by hand. For those with the same problem my unit is Model #GHW9100LQ1.

    i would then think you might have something stuck between the tubs, ie, bra under wire, nail/screw. try shining a flashlight into the tub and look for an obsruction.

My whirlpool duet washer hammers very loud when it spins. The outside of the machine doesn't seem to vibrate much but it is very loud.


That is a common occurrence with dryers such as this one. Even though it sounds bad, it is harmless. If it really bothers, you can re-balance the load and it should reduce the vibration.

Loud humming or buzzing only when it spins at high speeds


This noise causes by the drum bearing is getting worse. As soon as the noise is getting far louder and extremely louder then you have to replace the bearing of the outer drum. Normally, the repair cost is as high as buying a good deal new washer.

My whirlpool duet washer make a loud banging sound during spin - louder when it goes into super spin


It sounds like the spider or support arms that hold the wash drum have failed and the drum is hitting the wash tub when it is spinning. Try spinning the inner drum by hand and listen for any thumping sounds as it turns. Also examine how it turns, if you notice that is wobbles as it turns, it also means that the supports are failing.

It can be fixed but it might be expensive. Get a few estimates before deciding to repair or replace. Hope this helps you.

Whirlpool washing machine make loud noise after spin cycle quits. Noise continues until cycle winds down. Sounds like a machine gun being fired


Hello,have to tell you that most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping noise during the spin, the load of cloth may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the cloths, then restart the machine. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Thanks

Very noisy when on spin. The machine seem to be balanced however the noise on spn is like a jet taking off. it gets louder as the spinning speed increases.
