Plastic piece stuck between drums

A piece of my daughter's plastic ring came off and I believe it is lodged between the inner and outer drums. The drum still spins but there is a soft rubbing noise that occasionally becomes a louder grinding noise. How hard will it be to get the plastic piece out? Does the drum need to be removed? (Whirlpool Duet HT Washer)Thanks

First remove power from the washer. The top panel #2 in the diagram can be removed by removing the two screws in back. The kick panel #16 also has two screws that hold it in place. From there you should be able to find what you lost. Best of luck!

Kenmore Elite H3 washer's loud in spin cycle & smells burnt.Debris & plastic in well inside washer.Pushed aside rubber ring & saw lg. gap btwn. metal drum & surrounding plastic.Parts needing replace?


It sounds like the drum has broken from the rear mount. This will chew up the outer shell. This is a very labor extensive job. The parts are expensive also. You will probably need a new outer shell and inner drum.

Hole in plastic outer drum


I have plastic welded my son's hockey skate with an automotive bumper cover welder and surprisingly it has held up-its basicly like a soldiering iron with a dime size foot on it-it came with a universal welding sticks that have kevlar fibers in it-I would back up the repair area with 3m aluminum repair tape and fill in your hole-cheers Denyy

I believe the drum is off, it rattles badly. Also it seems taht the white plastic ring in between the drum and the rubber seal has broken.


If the inner wash tub does not spin true, but wobbles and rubs against the outer plastic tub, when you try to spin it by hand. The problem is that the support arms or spider arms have failed. It is an expensive repair since the wash tub and outer tubs need to be replaced and the washer has to be torn completely apart to replace them. Check your warranty and see if the manufacturer will help with the repair costs. Get a few estimates, before deciding whether to repair or replace this. Sorry.

F51 error code on wtw6700tw washer. Lost the tech


Was a far easier fix for me than all this RPS sensor hunting. For my machine's F51 error, there were socks lodged between the inner and outer tubs, causing too much friction on the motor. This led to the computer reading poor performance of the motor. Please consider trying this easy fix before calling out service personnel or replacing circuitry!!! I spent hours under the machine messing with the motor and circuitry until I looked up at the translucent tub and saw stray laundry stuck where it shouldn't be.
* Open the lid. Turn the bottom agitator by hand. Give it a good push. It should continue rolling on for several turns. If not, there is laundry stuck between the tubs causing friction.
1.) Pry open the metal case lid. Take two flat head screwdrivers and wedge them in the crack about 6 inches from the left corner, and use them as levers to pop the metal lid, then the right corner. Lift up the metal case lid and lean it against the wall.
2.) Take off the plastic ring that bridges the gap between the inner and outer tubs. There are many little catches all around the perimeter of the outer tub that hold on this plastic ring. Find those catches and put outward and upward pressure on those to release the catches.
3.) Look down in the gap between the inner and outer tubs for stray laundry. I used a retrieval tool, below, to grab the socks. There were especially several socks in the back right corner near the pump inlet. Run the drain and spin cycle and look again. There were more strays hiding that I nabbed the second time!
4.) Snap the inner cover on by lining up all those catches and seating them. Snap the big metal lid back on by aligning and giving a good downward thump. Run the machine and be the hero, and don't be too mean to your wife about tossing those socks down in the crevices. Half hour and $3 for the retrieval tool is far better than all that RPS nonsense.

Loud squealing sound during spin cycle


Possibly a foreign article stuck inside the drum. When the machine goes onto spin this can rub against the outer drum causing such a sound.

This is commonly the underwire from a bra that has worked loose and lodged in one of the holes inside the inner drum. Have a careful feel round the whole inner surface of the drum to see if you can detect anything protruding. If you find a wire, grip it with a good pair of pliers and try to pull it out, remembering the shape that it probably has so it will need to be coaxed out accordingly. Anything protruding through the holes doesn't belong there!

I have removed three of these from our washing machine!

Hotpoint aquarius wm64 loud banging noise when spinning with full load no noise when spinning empty i have found small pieces of plastic inside drum


Several possibilities here.
First and fore most is the drum support or main drum bearigs are failing., more likely to be drum support
The pieces of plastic you refer to are from inside the outer drum, because what is happening is the inner drum is catching the outer drum, and breaking the plastic inside.
You are going to have to strip it down to determine the exact cause, what I expect you will find is that the alloy 3 legged drom support has corroded away,a nd the drum has come loose.

Hope this helps you solve your problem

Changing inner drum


you must be fairly competent to have got this far! So! it now needs a bit of brute force. I assume you have removed the drive pulley? Now lay the unit down, 'pulley side uppermost', support the outer tub from the floor with a couple of bricks at either side to give floor clearance to the inner tub, use a piece of hard wood (to protect the shaft end) and give the wood a HARD BLOW with a 4 pound hammer. The shaft is just 'stuck' in the bearings. Dont mess around tapping the shaft end with a small hammer, you will only bruise the shaft end. As they WOULD say around here

Dark Spots on clothes


There may be some pieces of mat stuck between the inner and outer drums. The quickest way to remove this is to remove the drain hose that leads from the drum to the pump and feel around the bottom of the outer drum and remove any foreign objects that may be stuck in there.
