WFW8300SW01 rear bearing noisy

I have a WFW8300SW01 for 18 months and during the spin cycle the washer is VERY noisy. The ball bearing sounds like the grease is missing. (metal on metal)  I have had an authorized service call and the tech said the rear bearing is out. He called back a week later and said he could not figure out what part / assembly to order.  Whirlpool said they would supply the part but I had to pay the labor cost.  I’m willing to take on the project but how do I find the part number to order from Whirlpool?
 
Any suggestions are most welcome.

You need a "tub job". New rear tub with bearing and possibly a basket..This is caused by the wrong or too much soap or constant overloading. It takes 2 men about and hour to accomplish. I'm a repair tech and this is common on front loaders.

Go to sear.com and then to the parts section. Type in your model # and there will be a list of sub compenents to the parts. Click on the tub section and the bearing (rear tub assembly) will be there.

    We only had our washer for about 5 years and it is already shot! Just had a repairman out and there were a multitude of problems including door seal, bearings, pump assembly. The cost to repair was outrageous so we ended up having to buy a new one. I think it's ridiculous that a washer only lasts 5 years. The matching dryer also has issues in that the heating coil is going bad. I would never recommend this product.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

Wfw8300sw01 - makes loud noise sounds during spin


The bearings have collapesd due to the seal going faulty. If bearings can be accessed to from the outside, it is possible you could do the repair. If big bearing and seal is accessed from the inside, suggest tech. do it as it gets dirty and a lot more complex.

NOISE DURING SPIN CYCLE


You have to take the tub out, take off the rotor from the bottom of the washer, remove 4 bolts and take off the stator, take off the bearing retaining nut, then drive the 2 bearings out with a drift. I bought the bearings online for 20 bucks from a supplier (VBX). They are standard metric bearings number 6005 and 6006. I put some silicone grease on the shaft seal and drove the new bearings into place. Then reassembled, and the washer is whisper quiet.

Very Noisy Washer!


Hello julierealtor how old is the washer? Try turning the inner drum by hand and see if it is noisey or moves up and down. If so then it is either your rear support of the inner drum that has failed or the rear bearings. If it seems fine, maybe you have something in the drain pump (which runs prior to and during the spin) that is causing the noise. If it is noisy during the drain, then you may either need to clean out the pump or replace it. Hope this helps.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.
