Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
There is probably a spring that has come loose.
It is tricky... and you need some room to do this.
The white part of the washer is just a fancy cover. If you take it off and set it aside you will probably find your spring and you will figure out where it goes.
I will tell you the springs are very important. They hold the drum so that while it is spinning it stays centered and does not rub the sides. I learned this the hard way. I let my rattling go for a long time. Probably a year. The drum rubbed a hole thru the plastic liner and when my washer got to the spin cycle the centrifuge effect to get the water out of the clothes... got the water to go out the hole on to my floor. The drum was 200 dollars and was a big pain to replace. Not worth the time at all.
So I would not let it go to long if I were you. Wait for a couple days off in a row... or call a tech. The springs are cheap and easy to fix. it might not even be broke. They have a coiled end like a key chain. I might have loosened and fallen off.
Hope this was helpful.
