Rear bearing noise when in spin cycle Whirlpool GHW9100LW2

When in the spin cycle my washing mashine sounds like the rear bearing is whinning like it needs greased. Has anybody replaced this on one of these front loaders and if so where can I find a service manual and parts breakdown for this Model # GHW9100LW2. Also is there any place online to order these parts? I have talked to 3 different repair locations close to me and they told me that when this model dryer gets this problem it is cheaper to just buy another dryer , for most repair guys they know never fix the bearing problems. I just can't hardly beleive this . Thanks..

The reason some repair guys dont fix this problem is that it is so expansive to fix the bearing is molded into the tub so you have to buy a new tub assembly and when whirlpool bought out maytag they raised all the prices on everything it would be almost 300 for the tub assembly than it takes about 1 to 2 hours than if you need a new shaft assembly that is more than the tub so thats why they dont fix them

Why does my washer make noise before the spin cycle


Depending on what the noise sounds like, these front load washers have rear bearing issues. The drum bearing is just not strong enough to support the weight and the larger the drum the more weight and I doubt they use larger bearings for more cubic feet machines. They need a buddy bearing or some sort of support to take all the weight off the rear bearing.

Might be the rear bearing. The bearing and seal come as the rear tub assembly and is quite expensive as it is a two hour repair .

I need a bearing for the ghw9100lw2 is that sold separate from the rear drum


No. the bearing is molded in the rear drum. The rear outer tub runs around $200 and it is not an easy job. I recomend having a technician replace it.
