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.

The main center bearing is going bad that's why it is not wanting to spin on its own and is also making the loud noise when its spinning i.e. sounding like a jet engine firing up or metal grinding noise. I would not repair this very expensive cost around $300 to $600 to fix I would go buy a good quality used one or a new one sorry for the bad news but that's what it is I see 2 of these a week in my shop same problem but hope this helps.
