Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The inner tub is out of balance and rubbing against the outer tub

I think it is the rear bearing. the belt, pully and motor ar fine. Can I change the rear bearing or is it a new inner/outer tub complete?

    Bottom bearing has been removed. The inner race of thetop bearing broke out and now I need to somehow remove the outer race but now there's nothing left to pound on.

The rear bearing is part of the back half of the outer tub. In some cases the basket will need replaced also if the shaft is scored. This is a big job. In most cases whirlpool will warranty the parts for 10 years but not the labor. Will need to check in your owners manual. Hope this helps

Water leaking from bearing at back of drum


you better get at this soon,the lip-seal is gone from the outer tub and now water has penetrated the bearings behind this lip-seal,the longer you wait the harder it will be to remove these bearings and if its a plastic outer tub you can destroy this tub when removing the old bearings,the inner tub needs to be removed,the rear access needs to be open the motor pulley removed,the c-clip that secures the outer bearing needs removing then the inner tub can come out the front to access these bearings for replacement

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Nice to see there are some A series washer still in service. Ok here goes on the what can cause this problem list.

1. The iiner wash tub.
a. Some one with small fingers needs to feel in between the outer tub cover and and the inner wash tub for missing chunks of the top of the wash tub ring. It is filled with concrete FYI. If the tub corroded and it tossed a bit of the top balance ring you will always have an off balance condition in the spin cycle.
b. Also grab the top of the inner wash tub and attempt to teeter just the inner wash tub. If it teeters there is a problem under the inner wash tub. This can be because of the mounting stem
item 24 of this link http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=26789&diagram_id=28323416#d28323416 or the tub bearing Item 18 of the same link.
If the tub bearing is bad the outer wash tub can move indepently of the inner wash tub. The should move as one. Grab the agitator and press on 3 sides of the outer wash tub with opposing force and check for excessive moment. (FYI the mounting stem and tub bearing repairs ar not for the novice repair person.)

2. The CORK damper pads on the top of the machine base are worn. Item 22 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=26789 Pushing the outer wahs tub off center and against the cabinet should result in the outer wash tub retring to near center (within 2 inches as viewed from the top) If it does not return to near center there is a problem with the damper pads.

_________________________________________________________________________________


Here are my thoughts on your washer and what to consider. If your unit is in fair material condition and you do not have lots and LOTS of rust on the base I would repair it. Honestly this machine will outlast you if you have it "re-furbished" Refurbishment would be
A. New Tub Bearing
B. Mounting Stem
C. O-ring replaced on agitator shaft inside the transmission lower housing PN 2-10286
(^ ^ ^ ^ -- Must purchase transmission grease.
(there is the possibility that the Transmission drive gear would need replaced PN 2-10315)
D. Damper Pad Kit.
E. Motor mount spring and roller kit PN 2-5000
F. Both belts Items 18 and 19 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=26789&diagram_id=28323416#d28323416
G: Water injector kit.. No part number but still available.

I know this is probably a lot more information that you wanted but.. the bottom line is you own one of the "Cadillacs of Maytag." As long as the macine base and cabinet are in fair shape you can keep it in service with parts that are always available.

To fix your current problem it will show up when performing steps 1 and 2 at the top of the post. The unit will most likely have to have the inner and outer tubs removed to correct the problem and it involves about 2 hours of labor. You may have to find a very experienced repair person to have your unit re-furbished IF and I reiterate IF it ever comes to that.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Has a squeek when it is in the spin cycle


mostly the motor problem  and other possible problem can be  that a bearing is bad.If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly  and the outer shell with the tub bearing. 
Sometimes the inner basket support will crack, this can give an clicking or banging noise as well.

If you have removed the drive belt from the rear pulley and the inner spin basket does not spin freely, you either have a drum bearing seized up on you, or something binding between the spin basket (stainless steel tub) and the outer tub shell. First, you need to reach inside the wash tub with the washer empty. Place the palm of your hand at the 12 o'clock position and push straight up. There shouldn't be any play in the spin basket. If you can feel the basket wobble up and down, you have either a bearing problem, or a spin basket support (spider arm) broken on the back of the spin basket. If there is no play at all, you probably have something caught. Small articles of clothing can sometimes get pulled between the tubs and usually ends up around the support shaft in the rear. This will obstruct the basket from spinning freely and could eventually cause damage to the drive motor, spin basket and/or tub bearings. You can use the instructions for replacing a rear tub bearing that I have posted under my Tip and Tricks for instructions on how to disassemble and inspect the tub. The bearing may not be bad, but you still need to check to see if anything is binding the spin basket against the tub shell and inspect the spin basket supports. Unfortunately, you have to disassemble the washer to be able to inspect any of these items I mention. I hope this helps you.

To test for bearing failure, open the door, pull back the door seal then grab the plastic outer tub with one hand and the inner basket with the other hand. If you can lift on the basket and wiggle up and down, the tub bearing is bad.

The tub bearing is contained in the rear half of the outer tub. To replace the rear half of the outer tub requires total disassembly of the machine. The top, console, door seal, front panel, rear panel drain hose, pressure hose etc. all have to be removed. Then..the entire outer tub has to be removed and split apart. The basket will need to be removed and the rear half of the tub replaced,,,It is a very time consuming job, if you are mechanically inclined, you can do it, if not, consider a professional. Cost to repair by a professional will run around $450.00. Outer tub cost is around $300.00.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Worn outer tub


yea youl need to replace the tub alright, cgances are the bolts holding the inner tub to the transmission shaft have also broken off, which is why the inner tub spun off kilter and rubbed a hole in the outer tub,. the bolts (2 of them ) woulds have benn locking the inner basket to the tranny shaft, visible after removing the agitator
