Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P knocks when spinning

    After reading other problems with this washer I decided to take a shot at it.

    After removing the back cover and looking at the shocks and springs I noticed that the belt wheel lock nut was loose. I took it off and looked for damage then put it back in place. I tightened the lock nut really good and so far all is good. I did notice that the lock nut needs to be a smaller profile. We use these at work all the time and they require one thread out past the nut. This one is under flush and not locking.

I had that problem while the washer was under warranty. Luckily my neighbor is a repair man. He removed the front cover just under the door. There are shocks under the barrel that keep it aligned. One of mine was damaged and the barrel became misaligned. Check that area, that might be your problem. Good Luck!

Washer is knocking in front left when is starts spin cycle. The unit used to stop and re-align but not longer does. The knocking gets louder at slow speed and somewhat improves at a faster speed. What...


The unit is self aligned when all the load springs connecting from the tube to the bottom chassis are intact. When one of them some how gets out of its position or broken, it causes the tube imbalance so it knocks during the spinning. There are about 8 springs distributed evenly from front, sides, and the rear. Need to check these out.

Very loud knocking during spin cycle


I just had a technician tell me that problem was caused because the main rotor bearing was bad. Apparently, it is a sealed bearing that comes apart due to the excessive spinning. The repair charge is $800.

Whirpool Duet washer knocking sounds


From what it sounds, it could be one of the suspension bars. when it's spinning, it is all in the same direction where as agitation is both directions... that would make noise from starting and stopping directions etc. it could be a few other things... please let me kno if you need more help.
