Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I had a small aluminum nail in my pants pocket. It looks like it slipped into one of the drum holes and was causing a noise when the spin cycle was on. It looks like the head of the nail was too big to pass through the drum, so it was sticking out and hitting something during the spin cycle. It looks like the nail eventually worked though the drum housing (one of the holes is larger than the rest) so the nail must be in the tub basin somewhere.
What do I do now?
Hi I had the same problem, but not a nail a bra under wire, they have a wire that is sown in under the cup these often work loose and slip through the holes in the drum,in my case it was catching on the heating element if not removed it would catch the element and even damage it or at best my a bad noise. To get at it i just undid the heater element pulled it out from the drum and this then gave me good access to the drum housing so i was able to get at the wire. You must make sure you unplug the washer from the electrics DO NOT work on any appliance when it is connected to the mains. All washers have an heater at the bottom of the drum.If you are handy it will not take you more than an hour to do this job.Good luck.

Well so long as its no longer making noise chances are its passed into the drain pump cleanput area. remove thelower acess panel(3 screws across the bottom of machine) behind the panel yoll find a large turn screw looking part. unscrew it to reveal a lint/ button trap. chances are what has gotten in has been caught here. ckean out and reinstall. BE AWARE WATER WILL BE BEHIND THE FILTER PLUG, USE A BAG OR TOWELL TO CATCH WATER. AND UNPLUG UNIT LIVE WIRES DOWN THERE!!!!
