Check the agitator(the big plastic piece in the center)you can remove the cap in the top and there will be a bolt that holds it on,remove the bolt and see if the plastic gears are worn out.

When my washer is spinning , it has a clunking sound even when it is empty. Do you know what it could be?


Whirlpool has been having problems with their tub bearings. Not an easy fix at all. But to me it sounds like you
may have a broken shock. Pull the bottom panel off (three screws on the bottom) and you'll see the shocks.
It will be obvious to the eye. If that is the problem you can replace just that one, but I would go ahead and
replace all four...hope this helps.

I take it you are refering to the AWM5125

The sound you hear are the bearings on their way out. You will need a replacement rear tub half

Awm 5125 front load


I had the same problem tonight!! I opened the filter at the front and found one of my baby sons socks and 81 cents!
The machine is draining away perfectly now, but the floor got soaked when I opened it, so be prepared.

I am trying to locate the brushes in my whirlpool awm 5125 washer i have taken the top off but cant locate them


the brushes are on the motor which is located at the rear of the machine sitting just under the wash unit.

You will need a 10mm spanner to remove the bolts holding the motor on. unclip the wiring to the motor and remove.

the carbon brushes are located on the rear of the motor - one on each side of the commutator,

you will need a philips screw driver to remove the brushes
