Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

New motor for whirlpool washer

After having duet washer for approx. 1 year, it finally quit. It has always been very loud in the spin cycle, having a strong vibration which we thought had to do with the pedestal. Now we had to replace the motor for $600.00. After talking to my step daughter she told me of two other people who have had to replace the motors in their washers when they were under 1 year old. I wonder if this is a problem many people have had, enough for a class action suit? Are these washers doomed to fail? Please if anyone else has had problem with these washers e-mail me at linnea@plantsbydesign.com

UUUUUHHHHHHHHHHH(extreme dismay ANGER AND FRUSTRATION!!!!!!!!) sorry about that but reading this post made me very angry!!!!!! $600 to replace a motor in you duet??? assuming this model you posted is correct, that motor retails fro $165, which amounts to $435 for labor, on something that if took more then 15 min to replace , would check to see if tech fell a sleep behind the unit....!!!!!!! I hate the industry in which i work for t his very reason!!!!!!! aside from the fact that in the 5 yrs in which ive worked on this machine Ive NEVER < and by that I mean NEVER replaced a motor in a duet, Rear bearing yes, 3-4 hrs of work and still hadn't charged 600 dollars!!!!!!!!! I apologize for my ranting but its irking to say the least to hear that you were charged this, I should hope that you( or they ) perhaps had other issues that they corrected, to justify their pricing..If not look for a different servicer

During the final spin cycle, our front loading whirlpool is making a really loud noise - it sounds like a train is going through the house. It is in the basement on a concrete floor.


If the washer is brand new, look on the back panel and make sure the 4 transportation bolts have been removed. The bolts should be roemoved completely - they are only necessary to protect the washer during transportation.

If the bolts are removed, adjust the front two legs to be 1/4 inch higher than the back two. That 1/4 inch will balance the washer during the spin cycle, perfectly.

Tub spins too fast on all cylces


Just wondering: did the technician also replace the motor control unit? Or is that the 'spin unit' that you mentioned?

See pages 4-7 and 5-4 in the repair manual.
