Question about Whirlpool GHW9150 Duet Washer
Just wanted to add that our GHW9250MP0 suffered a similar problem. Using the disassembly procedure above we discovered that the basket support spider had completely corroded away from the spindle while the bearing was still in fine shape. At just under 10 yrs of age and thus still under warranty, Whirlpool sent the replacement basket and outer tub half, complete with gasket, free of charge. The above procedure was indispensable for a DIY job. Thank you blue extc322.

More than likely the washer tub bearing is worn out, this happens due to seal failure and soapy water getting into the bearing, the soap is very corrosive and the bearing fails quickly, this in turn destroys the drum vibration dampers and makes it much worse. The cost to repair this is about $400

remove the top access panel 3 screws in top rear.
now look around and push on the drum from top
it has suspension shocks and springs like your car they should resist any movements.
look/wiggle the concrete balance blocks , no cracks or loose.
inside the tub are the arm solid /not loose.
run it with the top open what do you see/hear and where
look under the rubber flap in front did anything get under the tub

old duets have nut on rear pulley that becomes loose. remove rear panel and tighten nut. check while spinning by hand if pop is felt. if it rotates smoothly then you may need new shocks on tub

Sounds like the rear tub bearing has gone bad. Remove the rear panel and belt. Grab the drum drive pulley and check how it's moving up & down and side to side.

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.
Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.
Replace/repair as necessary.
