Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
My washing machine this week has been making a very loud noise when in just about every aspect of the wash. My husband opened it up and looked under the plastic seal and noticed plastic. The plastic is from around the drum and has wallowed out. The machine will run and is not leaking
My washer is making a clicking sound in spin cycle in rinse and was cycle. I can see that the plastic tub has split and shifted about 1/2 inch away from the front of the washer. This is the third repair on this washer this year. paying some 100 dollars to come out and another 200 to repair is starting to be a bit much. The drain pump was just repaired in May now this. Please Help. My husband is deployed and I would really like to give my three little girls a christmas gift other than a new washing machine.
The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:
Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.
Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.
Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.
Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.The washing machine tub, or basket, generally doesn't cause problems. However, at times it may cause damage to the laundry, make a lot of noise, vibrate, or stop completely.
If laundry is torn during the wash cycle, feel around the tub. If you find a rough spot, you may be able to smooth it with an emery board. Sand the spot lightly. If this doesn't work -- or if you have to cut to bare metal to remove the roughness -- the tub should be replaced. In this case, it's probably much wiser to replace the entire washer.
