Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hello jeff my name is drew. I have a whirlpool washer HE frontloader and its been nothing but problems. Model number wfw9050xw00 originally it started leaking because my seal broke on the door i fixed that however its always made a lot of noise on spin cycle and would sound like its bouncing sometimes. Id stop it make sure it wasnt overloaded or unbalanced and it was neither but the front of the tub always seemed like it was leaning. It leaked again and had cracked the outter tub in the front under the counter weight. Replaced the outter tub then started doing "micro" loads of wash. 2 months later did it again. It has nothing to support the inner tub other than the bearing system in the rear and is a poor design because no matter what i do it will repeat the process and break again and crack the outter tub again. When it spins it just rides on the outter tub and slowly cuts a groove (which turns into the hole) in the outter tub the bearing/pully combo i would have to buy is $150 and the front outter tub that i would have to buy again is $70 so totaling at $220 for it to repeat the process once again and leak because the design is flawed. Any suggestions? Or should i just go buy a new washer and be done with it? Ive already but so many hours into this washer and already over $100 in parts not to count that i have to replace a section of the floor this time with it due to the water damage. If u have any suggestions for me other than to buy a new waser than email me at

SOURCE: Kenmore 110-91564100 Top Load Washer Problem

Sounds like my 91 Geo Merto LOL! Anywho when it washes the pump spins one way and water is basically thrown back into the tub, then when on spin it spins in the opposite direction and if there is a hose leak past the pump or the pump itself leaks it will come out of the drain system. As for the thump, check under the unit for anything that shouldnt be under there getting caught up in the mechanics. Let us know :-)
