First of all you need a spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut on the center post. once that is removed you can take out the inner basket and get to the outer tub. You will need to remove the outer cabinet to get to the screws that hold the outer tub in place. Good luck. If you need diagrams of how to do it go to appliance guru web site

Stopped in mid-cycle. drum will not turn even by hand, unloaded. Plastic/metal debris in filter.


Hi,

If you have a front load washer, sounds like you do, by your description. If you can't turn the drum by hand and have foreign object within the pump filter, its time to replace the washer. It sounds like your spindle has cracked and the tub will no longer be suspended from the rear. Metal from the spindle and plastic from the basket (spin drum). Sorry for the bad news but its cheaper to replace the washer than fix the damage. Good Luck

Noise inside the drum


Is there any play in the basket? The gap between the basket and the plastic tub should stay the same. If you are able to put pressure on the upper part of the metal basket and it moves within the tub, the rear support of the basket is damaged or tub bearing is bad. Both are terminal problems. Sorry.

Makes banging sound during agatation cycle, tub and agator both rotate back and forth.


Lift the top cover of the unit from the front of the unit once it is free from the front locking clips, which hold the cover in place. Two things you need to inspect for damage. 1) You should see four rubber straps, which should restrict the movement during the wash and spin cycle (cost is around $4.00 each). 2) Check the shocks on the tub support rods and plastic hardware for damage.

When the washer spins it makes a banging noise and the plastic around the tub shaves off


Thank you! We took our Duet 9150 apart and found that ALL THREE support arms were cracked. Same problem with shredded front tub also. My washer is a little over 7 years old. I called Whirlpool at the above number (you can't get "warranty service" but the parts service lady transferred me to the warranty dept). They were most helpful, and are shipping me both the metal tub AND the plastic which the metal destroyed, free of charge. Apparently your experience has shown them they have a problem with this...or I got a more helpful service agent!

Just had the same problem 1 month ago. My Whirlpool Duet front load made that terrible noise. 2 of the 3 spider arms were cracked. I hade a new hole tub with the spider arm and the shaft , because it is 10 years limited waranty . But if it is not under waranty it costs about 270$ for that tub you can buy it from many appliance parts web sites on the net. Good luck, huge job to all remove that thing

Whirlpool Duet: gray plastic agitator poece inside drum broke off


here's the part number for the replacement 8182233, thinking it may come as a 3 pack , if they're not broken no need to replace. but the new one will simply slide in and with a click forward lock into place. they also come shipped with a screw to secure. in order to install screw you'll need to remove the top of the washer(3 screws across the back of the top assy and slides back and off. then you'll see the top of the tub area, a small black hose will run from the white box to the left to directly top of the tub assy. remove ethe hose from the tub and spin the inner drum to the correct position, they screw hole will line up through the opening, re-secure the hose to the tub and your in!

Drum Bearing Replacement


With a plastic tub (outer drum as you describe it) removal of the old bearings can deform or bruise out the plastic housing a little - you will need to check that the new bearings will be really good fit. You may need to use a retaining compound if not, to ensure that the outer journals of the bearings don't creeping round in the plastic housing and wear it looser.
I did my Hoover Electron 800 bearings (metal tub). As i recall it was fairly straightforward - needed a gasket for the tub backplate on that.
Unbolted tub backplate from tub and withdrew it through rear of chassis along with drum/drum-shaft/bearings assembly, removed pulley, tapped shaft through bearings with softfaced mallet (or hammer & wood), drifted bearings out gently, working evenly around circumference.
For plastic tub some kind of suitable extractor may reduce chances of deforming bearing housing during bearing removal, compared to drifting them out. If it'd serve to ease the new ones in too then that'd be even better.
Don't forget to check/clean the water level pressure sensor path while you're at it - stave off any problems in that area for a while while you have the machine apart. ;o)

Irregular banging during cycle


these washers are a swine to dis-assemble and i would not recommend it unless you are experienced. on most indesit, the bearings are in a spider bolted to the outside of the tub. take the back off and see if you can localise the noise to the bearings worthwhile also taking the heater out (one nut in the middle), peer in and check no foreign object causing the noise

Washer leaking water from bottom


You may want to check the seal at the bottom of the agitator, there is a o-ring that keeps the water in the drum from leaking through the agitator as it spins. This is a cheap seal and will wear over a period of time from exposure to bleach and detergent. You need to take the agitator apart and remove it from the drum and you should see this seal at the base of the agitator were it meets the drum.

Replace the seal and reassemble, take the metal casing off the washer and fill the drum with a little water, wait, and see if the water is leaking under the drum. If no leak, try to reassemble and run the washer. If is still leaks then check http://www.applianceaid.com/genew.html
