Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
A tenant washes something that has left a grease residue in my washer. U have used a non-solvent based de-greaser (Simple Green) and ran several empty loads with just the degreaser and the residue has decreased but not been eliminated. Can I disassemble the tub to where I can wipe it clean with acetone to remove the grease and not damage the rubber components?
Yes, but it is quite involved if you're up to the challenge. The following link explains the step-by-step details involved in removing the wash tub and spin basket:
I know this link is for replacing the rear tub bearing. The process is still the same, however, as it involves removing the entire tub shell assembly. There are no special tools required, but an electric screwdriver with socket attachments will make the process of separating the tub shell halves go much faster. I would also recommend that you order and replace the tub gasket if you are going to separate the tub halves. You can find a replacement gasket at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Tub and Basket" heading for item number 10 (part #8181673). Other items to consider (but not mandatory) are the shocks for the tub (item number 23 - part #8182703). The shocks twist to release and they can sometimes break when you attempt to remove them. I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know.
