Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Inside of the dryer is cracking- huge holes!

I have only had my Whirlpool Duet Sport dryer a little over a year. I have been noticing that it takes 2 or 3 cycles for the clothes to dry. I looked inside and found that they entire inside is cracking and there are three large holes! I called Best Buy where I bought it but they said the warranty was only for 1 year and they could not help me unless I wanted to pay for a service call. Can the drum be replaced or do I need an entirely new dryer?

The drum can be replaced but dont know if you want to pay for one they are probably expensive and 2nd if it is taking 2 to 3 times to dry clothes you have a vent problem which has caused the cracking of the drum probably cause so much heat build up in the machine your vent is stopped up and it isnt keeping the heat and moisture in the dryer which is a fire hazard please call a technician and please rate this

How do i fix a duet dryer that takes too long to dry


I pulled apart the back of my dryer to access the heating element. I noticed I have a break in one of the coils. So, that means I need to buy a new one. The thing I noticed is that only of of the terminals at the bottom of the heating element has a plug on it. There are no additional wires inside the dryer that could have come off so I am a little confused as to if i new coil will work.
I watched a video online and it clear shows both terminals being connected. Anyone have any advice?

Whirlpool duet dryer felt seal replacement


The drum may to be removed to install the new felt gasket but the old drum can then be reinstalled. The felt gasket seals the joint where the drum rotates at the inside back panel. It is likely that the inside back panel can be removed when the dryer is placed front-down and the outside back panel is removed. In that case the drum does not have to come out.
