It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

SOURCE: Whirlpool won't spin at high speed

Sounds like you may have lost your basket drive and clutch assembly. This is a pretty involved job to replace for sure, and requires you to remove the inner basket, drop the transmission, etc. Does the unit make any wierd noises, like popping or grinding? Does it agitate ok in wash? I would bet almost for sure that its that basket drive and attached sub-pack thats went bad. If you want to try and tackle this yourself, let me know, and will get you directions to do so. Good Luck!!!!

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

The tub spins but the machine will not go in high speed. you have a worn clutch. Usually, the clutch will wear out due to a bad set of brake shoes,or a busted comb filter in the tub.This has to be checked.
If the lower half of the clutch is turning when the unit is supposed to spin, yet the upper half does not, the clutch may be damaged or even the white plastic brake release cam above it could be worn. The clutch kit comes with a new brake cam also. Check fig for more help:-- c768d6f.jpg
--------- "if the clutch gets hot when running in a spinning cycle, even for a short time, that means that the clutch is "sliding" and that is the reason that the washer does not spin on high speed spin".You check the clutch in your washer after the spinning cycle and if it is really hot.Replace the clutch. ----------

You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Always worth while adjusting the 'balance'!
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

What will cause my Whirlpool washing machine to set on low speed spin cycle?


The machine uses automatic load sensors to balance the load and when you put something in the machine that is big, like a comforter, it knows that it cannot balance that item. So with a front loader it wont spin at high speed because it would be off balance and either damage the machine or the machine would "walk" because of the off balance motion.

The unit is self aligned when all the load springs connecting from the tube to the bottom chassis are intact. When one of them some how gets out of its position or broken, it causes the tube imbalance so it knocks during the spinning. There are about 8 springs distributed evenly from front, sides, and the rear. Need to check these out.

Hello with the limited information you have supplied this sounds like it is going to be the bearing, this is not something I would suggest a DIY fix since you have to replace the rear half of the drum with this model. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Good Luck! Mike

Hi I have a whirlpool duet front load washer (GHW9100lW1) and the status is stuck on CONTROL LOCKED and i can't change it and the machine is no longer working.


Try putting the machine into diagnostic mode. If it won't enter diagnostic mode, then you need to replace the main control board.

DIAGNOSTIC TEST

The washer must be empty and the control must be in the OFF

state before pressing the touch-pad sequence to start the test.

Starting the Test Mode

■ Close the door.

■ Push CONTROL/ON (if present on this model).

■ Select the DRAIN/SPIN cycle.

■ Select NO SPIN by pressing the SPIN SPEED touch-pad.

■ Push PREWASH OPTION four times within five seconds. (If

PREWASH OPTION is not present on this model, press EXTRA

RINSE four times within five seconds.) C:00 will light up on the

display.

If the Starting procedure fails, push the PAUSE/CANCEL touch-pad,

then repeat the starting procedure.

Test Program Control

In order to advance to the next step of the test procedure, push

PREWASH OPTION touch-pad two times. If PREWASH OPTION is not

present on this model, press EXTRA RINSE two times.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P knocks when spinning


I had that problem while the washer was under warranty. Luckily my neighbor is a repair man. He removed the front cover just under the door. There are shocks under the barrel that keep it aligned. One of mine was damaged and the barrel became misaligned. Check that area, that might be your problem. Good Luck!

My Whirlpool Duet washer has started to make much more noise in the high speed spin mode, is this normal or is it a service issue?


A loud, roaring noise in high spin speed usually indicates the tub bearing is failing. A large job best left to the professionals.
