Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

An open coat hanger went through a hole in the drum

We have a frontloading Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine. We washed a "cathouse" that my daughter made and didn't realize there was coat hanger wire that helped to support the roof. After washing, we found one piece of coat hanger halfway lodged through a hole in the drum. After further investigation, we found another whole piece of coathanger wire that is laying under the drum. We have attempted to get it back through a hole without much success. Any suggestions?

    Thanks. Unplug the unit was a great thought that we didn't do. We ended up drilling one of the holes in the basket a tiny bit bigger and managed to pull up the hanger through that hole. Thanks for your ideas.

Frontload Duet. The tub will not spin, the belt

I am not an expert but I would suspect a failing bearing has seized up. Mine would spin one direction, but not the other. I worked it and got it to go both ways, but with a snapping sound. This is checked by spinning the pulley with the back panel off (machine unplugged of course).
