My whirlpool duet front load washer has loose fins in the tub. how do i tighten them??

You're not gonna like this:

Pull the washer tub (see elsewhere on FixYa for step-by-steps), split the tub by removing the screws holding the two halves together, and remove the inner tub. Bend any tabs tighter that hold the fins on, and tighten any screws. While you have it apart, check for grease stains or other leakage on either side of the outer tub, and ensure the inner tub bearing is tight so that the inner tub shaft rotates smoothly and without oscillation. If there are stains or if the bearing is showing wear, replace that (back) half of the outer tub to replace the bearing (unless this is one of the few machines that allow you to replace only the bearing). You don't want to put all this back together, only to have to take it all apart again when the inner tub starts hammering on the inner tub because the bearing went south.

Whirlpool duet front load washer banging Loudly during spin cycle as if off balance

More than likely the washer tub bearing is worn out, this happens due to seal failure and soapy water getting into the bearing, the soap is very corrosive and the bearing fails quickly, this in turn destroys the drum vibration dampers and makes it much worse. The cost to repair this is about $400

I have a whirlpool Duet washer model GHW9150PW0 that began to thump during the spin cycle. I removed the front and it appears the inner tub is off-center or out-of-round. Further, it has worn off the...

There is a lifetime warranty on this main basket. and 10 years on the outer front and rear buckets. My unit is 7 1/2 years old. and had the same problem. One of those 3 spokes connecting the main shaft to the rear bucket cracked and killed the front outer bucket. Whirpool tried to tell me I needed a professional to diagnose it but I told her the rear outer bucket was cracked, leaking water, and shredded the front outer. She sent me all three parts for $0! It took 2 hours to get apart and that was me being super careful. The parts will be here tomorrow morning! I did needd to buy 2 shocks at $21.00 each.

We have a Whirlpool Duet Sport Front-Loading Automatic Washer and it makes a pretty loud noise when in the spin cycle. The volume is directly proportional as to how fast the washer is spinning. It's a...

The symptoms that you describe are caused by bearing failure. The water seal in the wash tub has failed, allowing water to leak into the bearing causing the bearings to rust. As the bearings start to rust, they will not roll properly and start to make a rumbling sound. The sound get louder the faster the bearing turns.
It a major job to repair since the washer has to be taken apart and the wash drum needs to be removed to replace the seal and bearings. Get a few estimates before deciding whether the washer is worth the cost to repair or replace. Sorry.

I require method to remove drum bearings on whirlpool washer WHI-AWM5125

You can't!!!!! You need to replace the rear tub half as the bearings are moulded into the rear tub.

The part number you require (Whirlpools own spares number) is 4812 418 18318 and this has an rrp of £109.76

Unfortunately you can't just bang out the bearings and replace them like the good old days

Whirlpool Duet WFW9200SQ02 - high speed spin extremely loud!

I have the exact same washer, its also 2 years old, and this last week my bearings went bad too. I actually pulled my washer apart and replaced the stock el cheapo bearings with some better quality ones by Toyo. No, theyre not titanium, I'm a mechanic and I've never even seen titanium sealed bearings before. Not doubting they exist, but I highly doubt youll find them in any residential appliances regardless of make. Upon disassembly, I found what I believe is the issue with the seal, hair. Hair works its way to the drive shaft, slowly works its way into the seal, and then acts as a conduit for the water to enter the bearing cavity. Both sealed bearings eventually have thier grease forced out by water, and fail. This repair is time consuming, but it can save you a LOT of money. Whirlpool only sells a whole new rear tub, at a cost of $408 just for the part. I took it apart and found that the bearings are simply pressed into the steel hub on the rear tub half. I knocked them out, and a local bearings and drives shop had some replacements for me, for $20. I put it all back together, and its running fine. If you attempt this repair, make notes, and mark where everthing goes. You'll need to disassemble a substantial amount of the machine to get the tub assembly out. If youre not able to do the repairs yourself, I recommend buying a new washer, its just not worth spending $6-700 to have a shop do it.

Disassemble Whirlpool duet

Yes, but it is quite involved if you're up to the challenge. The following link explains the step-by-step details involved in removing the wash tub and spin basket:

I know this link is for replacing the rear tub bearing. The process is still the same, however, as it involves removing the entire tub shell assembly. There are no special tools required, but an electric screwdriver with socket attachments will make the process of separating the tub shell halves go much faster. I would also recommend that you order and replace the tub gasket if you are going to separate the tub halves. You can find a replacement gasket at Just type in your model number and look under the "Tub and Basket" heading for item number 10 (part #8181673). Other items to consider (but not mandatory) are the shocks for the tub (item number 23 - part #8182703). The shocks twist to release and they can sometimes break when you attempt to remove them. I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know.
