Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

4 Answers

My Front loader Washer has plastic shavings and it is clickin when it spins

When ever the was spins is clicks even in was mode. between the fron door and the metal basket I can see the plastic out cover that is has a shaved lip and its sitting about 1/2 away from the front. A few months ago I paid to have the Pump replaced and now this. I have two bed wetters and my husband is deployed. Should i just get a new washer for christmas? What should i have the Technician check for to make sure I can wait a while before it has to be replaced.

Hi-

1) Check the spin cycle. If this works, the motor is operating and the belt is not broken. If it doesn’t, the belt may be loose or broken. If you’re fairly handy, tighten or replace the belt; otherwise call an appliance repairperson

2) Check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that strikes it. If the plastic tab is broken, the washer may halt during certain cycles. Press and release the switch: If it doesn’t click each time you do this, it’s probably broken. If you’re experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repairperson.


Hope this helps

Check for any worn on the side of the washer as there could contact washer drum and the body which cause clicking sound ..Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details ..

Good luck....

Kindly open the door and inspect the drum and the rubber gasket of the door. there could be clothes or plastic lining that has come detached that is hitting the drum as it turns.

please inspect the interior thoroughly. check the drum as you manually turn it.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Hi,

If it's clicking the clutch is dragging causing an extra load on the motor and the motor will click on and off. But a bad wire connection will also make a motor click as well as something caught in between the inner and outer tubs like a rag or something. A bad motor will also cause a clicking sound it will be clicking and studdering not getting into a full spin but will wash normally

    If this is under warranty then get it repaired.

Why does my washer (maytag mah5500bww front loader) make noise during the wash/rinse cycles but not during the spin.?


The noise could be from a loose wire harness, plastic purse-lock wire harness retainer on the upper hose hitting the top cover ir a plastic injector mold standoff on the outer tub bearing housing, also a flat spot in the belt could cause a tapping noise. Something between the outer tub and wash basket. I have had to remove items lodged in the drain tube between the pump and tub, like bra under wires. Sometimes you can squeeze the tube and feel objects the ate lodged. I always take the tube off the tub side and run my finger all the way down to the pump impeller to make sure. I also check the I can spin the impeller and the nothing is in the pump. Hard to say with out being there. Where do you think the noise is coming from top , bottom , left , or right side?

My frigidaire fron loader will not spin during wash cycle but will spin when placed on spin


If the drain pump is working correctly and you can get it to spin manually, then the board is faulty. Had the exact same problem with an Lg front loader 40 min. ago.(have to replace the board.)

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles


I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.

NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.

Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

Can anyone help.???

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

one of the welds on your inner stainless steal tub may have broke causing the drop of your tub.  The tub has a warranty on it but the labor to put it in is around 3hrs give or take any hour.
