Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator
Would like to know if I can repair this issue. Do not know if the bearing is in the transmission or not. Any idea what a repair would cost?
Many Thanks There is a grinding noise that appears to be coming from the agitator. The agitator seems a bit loose as well. How do I remove the entire agitator? l have already removed the top dispenser, and can see the head of a bolt when the dispenser is removed. Should I unscrew the bolt to remove the agitator? Should I remove the agitator to stop this noise? If not, the how do I stop the grinding noise?
Removing the agitator will not stop the grinding noise. Usually a bearing/gearbox problem going bad will create a howling grinding noise. You'll definitely hear it in the spin cycle. These are an expensive fix and require special technician tools to disassemble the unit. The gearbox is a sealed unit. Most manufacturers warranty their unit's gearbox for 5 years regardless the warranty you got when you purchased the unit, so check into this before you void your warranty. (The manufacturer requires their factory authorized service technicians to do the replacement) All in all if you do the work yourself it'll be approx $250 for the parts and gearbox transmission. To have the work done is usually much more.
