Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Marble slipped between the tub and the opening of duet washer

The marble rolls each spin of the tub causing noise and vibration. Sales person at Lowes said whirlpool had this problem with the opening between the tub and the box and they made the opening tighter on the newer model. He also said we need to get it out or there will be further damage to the tub. $80.00 authorized person and a lot of talking to whirlpool later it still is not fixed.

Sounds like you must disassemble the washer. Not that hard to do. Be sure and unplug it first!

Vibrates, shakes and moves around and has a lot of noise while spinning. It has been leveled and the floor seems sturdy enough.

A marble or a bearing is rolling behind the drum


WOW

Like they say where there is a will there is a way.

This was too simple, I had determined that in fact it was a marble from my childs clothes.
So i thought if it can get in there, it can come out the same way.

Take a ziplock sandwich bag, turn it inside out, fish the opened side down the crack between the drum and the flange around it. This is the only place a marble can get in or out.

This took a little patience but you will feel the marble hit the baggie, keep giggleing it and front and back rotation until you feel you have captured the marble, think of it as a game.

When you have it gentley pull it out and assist with a pry bar as I realized after, and open the area just enough for it to pass.

Vola a scored marble.

took me approx ten minutes and didn't have to curse once.

I hope this little Mc Giver trick works for you all and you feel as good as I did and saved alot of money.

Ps. didn't even see any mention from these repair guys of any such expertise.
