Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Metal Drum Ripped

I have a Whirlpool Duet Sport washer that I puchased in April 2006, and is thankfully still under warranty. We noticed our clothes were ripping and becoming stained with black/grey blotches. Upon further inspection we found that the metal at the back of the drum is ripped in several places and has jagged edges. The repair man said he has NEVER heard or seen this. Does anyone have a similiar story? We are hoping that they will replace the entire machine since the estimate is close to $1000...still waiting to hear from them. My guess is that it is a problem with the stainless steel when it was being made?

F8E1 on my whirlpool duet WFW9150 front load washer. 4th time in 8 months...(bought brand new)


I too had the same problem and what I found (besides poor workmanship in the design of this washer) is that the pressure switch hose had rubbed the drum and there was a hole in it - leaking water, which I hadn't noticed until I sat there and kept re-running washer til a puddle had shown up below. They wire tied the top of the hose to the drum but at the bottom of the hose there were no wire ties and so the foam padding that was wrapped around just kept rubbing until it ripped and then left the hose exposed to the drum. They should have never tied the hose to the drum and should have attached the hose to the right cover. I will be modifying their design as soon as my new hose arrives.

Whirpool duet washer. Drum pulley loose


If the pulley doesn't fit the shaft anymore, it may have sheared a metal key between the shaft and pulley center. If it did, you may have to replace both the key and pulley. If the key is intact and the set-screw is only loose, just tighten the screw and you're home free. Make sure the belt has not been damaged--replace it if so. The belt should be fairly tight when things are back together.

Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer Banging During Spin Cycle


If the the drum feels loose in any way, there are three possible reasons:
1. The pulley nut has come loose. (easily repairable from the rear)
2. The bearing is bad (part of the rear tub).
3. The spinner has come loose from the basket (what you describe)

In cases 2 and 3, the entire drum/tub assembly will have to be removed, disassembled and repaired/replaced.

Check your owners manual for possible limited warranty. Contact Whirlpool for potential warranty repair concessions for case 3 if not covered under limited warranty.

Whirlpool duet sport wfw8300sw00 f-21 error


Unplug the machine. Unscrew the 3 screws under the front edge of the washer. The service technician manual is attached to the panel that slides down and off. Find F21 code. See suggested procedures. Note: My drain pump filter had a baby wash cloth in it along with some change that was disrupting the flow. It is exceptionally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. Just line up installation notches when reinstalling. Whirlpool should have mentioned this filter in the User & Care Guide, but I could not find it anywhere in there.
