Disassemble Whirlpool duet

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 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.

Remove the motor together with the blower wheel, go to the local self service car-wash and use the engine de-greaser cycle (if not available, buy a can at the auto supply, spray the fan blade and let sit for a while) and get all the grease of the fan blades. make sure the fan blades are cleaned thoroughly. the fan will now ran quietly and will remove all the grease away. in the future, clean the filters often.

My washer stains my clothes. it looks like grease stains on delicate fabrics. plse advise. I checked many times and dont know where it is coming from. agnes

The brown stains are likely coming from the felt drum seal. The OEM adhesive is tar based - and after time and use - breaks down.

You'll need a new felt seal - and the adhesive that is used should be silicone based... eliminating the brown streaks.

Viking 6440, sticks in reverse. Hair dryer on high temp. fixes it until it cools off. How can I clean the old grease out and add new grease, myself? Repair is 425.00 at the shop.

You need to purchase a de-greaser spray to clean out the old grease. Im sorry but Im not an expert at this type of machine, but most of the inner workings are similar to all brands. You need to remove the top to expose the crankshaft device that is inside, and spray with a de-greaser. If you know the area where it sticks try that area first. A common de greaser is actually WD40. It lubricates and de greases, you could try this, if available in your area. You may have to use a lithium based grease for that machine I cannot say for certain. I do however have a link to the Husqvarna help site if that will help..

Grease or rust ?? My front loading whirlpool duet washer is

This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

Grease on my freshly washed cloths

This sounds like a seal problem in the base of the agitator. This seal is what keeps the water inside the machine and the grease out of the wash basin. It is not something that should be attempted to repair if you are not mechanically inclined.

To get the grease out of your clothes, use an engine de-greaser which can be bought from any automotive parts store. You just spray the de-greaser on the area where the grease is located and rub it in by hand. You will need to use lots of soap to remove the de-greaser from your clothes, and might have to wash the item twice, to get rid of the de-greaser smell from the clothes.

Note, the de-greaser will break down all oil stains and grease stains, and is an oil by-product. This has worked for me on many occasions, but I have only used it on denim jeans and cotton shirts, with excellent results.
