Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirpool duet is making a clacking noise on the spin cycle.

The washer is 18 months old and gets heavy use. We opened the back and the belt seems fine. I haven't checked to see if the washer is level, although the legs seem solid. The tub does seem slightly off center when the door is closed. Ideas? The noise sounds like the tub is hitting against something.

Reach inside and see if there is any play to the inner/spin tub (up and down) . Tub may be seperating from mounting and spindle assembly.

Whirlpool duet fw95hedco washer won't spin at max speed & leaves all clothes wet. No error codes during tech diagnostic visit. Washer only 18 months old.


Possible Defective washer transmission. Do you overload the washer with heavy items like towels or blue jeans very often? That can cause early failure.

Whirlpool Duet washer...after problem with it getting out of balance due to not draining and trying to spin with a heavy load, I have since noticed if I place my hand inside the tub..it will spin freely...


Your original problem is likely to have damaged the bearings and the spin tub shaft... the shocks can fail, but that would not affect the fitment of the shaft and bearings.

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.

Duet Washer spin cycle makes noise


if it was from a heavy load more than likely 2 screws came off of the tripod on the back of the metal basket.

take of the front lower panel of the washer and clean out the drain pump, if the screws came out they should be in there. to actually fix the problem you would have to take the entire tub assembly out and apart to get to the baskside of themetal basket.

but in general, its not that hard to fix if you are mechanical savvy. i fixed mine myself and im a 27 yo female who has never looked inside a washer before this experience.

Whirpool Duet Sport Front Loading Washer is making a funny noise


open top cover (two or three screws on rear and slide back) and look at rear of tub checking clearance to rear panel and nothing touching belt or pulley. whirlpools tend to have a high pitch low volume whine anytime motor operates.
you really dont want to replace that bearing. part of tub assm. $400 part plus labor

Rumble/clacking while draining & spinning


Check for debris in filter of pump assembly. The filter unscrews out of the machine. It is located behind the bottom panel. Remove the two or three screws holding the panel in place, gently ply down and you will see what looks like a handle. It will be hard to turn but unscrew it and check to see if there is any debris. Have towels near by as there will be quit a bit of water coming out as you remove it. It the unit still makes noise there is a good chance the pump motor is going.
