Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I need to remove a Whirlpool Duet Sport front-load from the "pedestal" it is installed on. The spin cycle causes too much vibration. How do I loosen the bolts or height adjusting screws that fasten the washer to the pedestal?

Not an expert but had identical symptoms. Problem was the loosening of the nut 27mm on the main pully. Simply remove lower back panel (16- torx 20 screws ) and tighten same.

If this does not hold over time, the pully hub has been damaged, and a shim, ( shopmade washer ) may solve problem. Remove belt, and pully, look for damage, and install thin shim, so that the nut will not bottem out on bolt before tightening on the pully hub. Good Luck, Lee

All washing machines rattle and vibrate during a cleaning cycle, and especially more so during the rinse cycle.

If you have placed it not a pedestal, make sure that the pedestal does not have wheels, or thin legs, as it will invariably move. It is best to place the unit directly on the floor itself.

If you still find that the unit vibrates excessively, it could indicate a faulty bearing on the drum, and I'd recommend getting it replaced once again under warranty..

Whirlpool duet sport..vibrates during spin and "walks"..on pedistal.sitting on tile


I just bought this washer and had two problems with it. 1 the vibration at medium spins and 2. a squeeking spring (every time the drum rotates a little squeek, but when spinning the squeek sounds constant.

What I discover in solving both my problems with the same solution. I had to ensure all 4 feet well on the ground and that the top of the washer was perfectly level. At one time I was out only about 2 mm on one side, but the bubble was slightly to one side on the level but still in between the level's markers. I tested with a load, and both problems were still there. Turn feet 1/2 turn on the side needing adjusting. Ran another load and you guessed it, no squeak, no vibration, spinning was quiet, I had to go over to check to see if the machine was going through the cycles. I couldn't believe that a few millimeters could make such a difference.

Now I am pleased with the performance, not to mention how clean the clothes are and the savings on water and drying.

Washer appears to be out of balance


Double check the screws holding the washer to the pedestal to make sure they are tight and make sure all the jam nuts on the leveling legs are tight. Loose jam nuts are the most common cause of this.

If they are tight, loosen the right front leg and screw it up until the weight is off the floor. Then run it back down until it contacts the floor. Put the washer in high spin and tighten it down to the floor until you get the spot where there is the least vibration. Tighten jam nut, and check it again in spin with a load of clothes. 

Post back and let me know how this works.
