Replacing the fins on Duet whirlpool washer

I am trying to replace the plastic fins inside the drum of my whirlpool duet washer. I have the parts, and it is officially clled the drum baffle kit. I have a picture of how to install it, but how do I get to the drum? From the picture it looks like I have to get to the top of the drum to find a hole that I can screw the fin in place. model ghw9300pwo whirlpool duet front-loading washer

Re: Replacing the fins on Duet whirlpool washer

Most paddles are removed by grabbing hold of the paddle and pull towards the front of the washer which should release them youll need to lift it out when you have pulled on them love

Re: Replacing the fins on Duet whirlpool washer

I just went through the same thing and to put the new one in position it towards the back of the drum until it drops in tight against the drum, hold it tight against the drum pull it foreward and it should snap into place. If you want to use ther screws that come with it take the three screws off that are holding the top on at the back lift up and the top should come off. After that remove the hose coming from the detergent dispenser and rotate the drum until you see the hole on the baffle that the screw goes into. From factory they do not install the screw. I installed one baffle and 3 screws because I could not get the other 2 baffles to come off.

My whirlpool front end load duet washer has an inner drum which was making increasingly loud noise and now seems loose from the outer drum


I am sorry to say that fixing this is a major repair. it involves replacing the inner tub and at least the rear half of the outer tub. Getting to these parts involves almost total dis-assembly of the washer. It takes me 2.5 to 3 hours to do this job generally, and the parts cost is substantial.

If I were you, my first step would be to contact Whirlpool and try to get them to cover the repair, or at least the parts.

If you would like to attempt the repair, I will gladly give you some pointers and help you through it, just be aware that it is a complex procedure.

Let me know if you need more help,

Code f 71

Check to see whether the laundry drum to the washer moves. If it does move, then the user interface needs replacing. If the drum is locked and will not move, you need to replace the central control unit on the washer.

I'm finding losts of little palstic pieces inside the washer. when i moved the rubber gasket I can see the plastic metled around the washer drum. is there a replacement part for this?

This is a very bad sign.It means the rear tub bearing and or tub support is bad. This is a very extensive and expensive repair even if you did it your self.If you had to pay someone to do it you would be better off replacing the machine with a new one

Whirlpool duet washer sagging drum

It appears your vibration damper has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

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!

Whirlpool duet washer has rock, marble, or something stuck inside

as long as your sure its an item between the tub assy the baffles in the drum can be removed and item fished out. but ifsomething snapped on the rear of the drum you would need to replace it. the baffle part number is 8182233, its about $40 thinknin thats worth a try before 475. the lower acess panel could also be removed and the main tub to pump hose could be removed which would give you a 3in hole to look through and try to grab somethin. worth a try
