Question about Whirlpool GSC9455 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Smoking washing machine

I have a front loading whirlpool washing machine. I first noticed the problem, because my machine wouldn't make it through the rinse cycle. I kept getting alot of sandy looking stuff out of my filter. Then the water wouldn't pump out of the machine. My husband and I somehow were able to get the machine to drain, but now it has started smoking when it gets to the fastest part of the spin cycle. The entire drum fills with smoke! I won't let it get all the way through the cycle, so I don't know if the machine will shut off or just continue. When I look in the window it looks as if the drum is off center and it is rubbing against the rubber seal. The seal itself looks fine. (not torn or broken.)

Switch it off before you burn your house down

The drum support sounds to have either cracked or come loose allowing the drum to run on the door gasket

The friction will cause the rubber to melt and burn hence the smoke.

Your drain pump filter probably needs cleaned. YouTube has several videos you can watch on how to do it. It's an easy fix. Type " whirlpool duet drain pump " into the search bar. Let me know if you have trouble.

Sud message on whirlpool duet front load washer also after washing clothes i notice a mildew smell on the clothes.


You areusing too much soap. Run a rinse cycle and use less soap next time. As for the mildew leave your door cracked open after you are done using the machine.

Remove the panel beneath the door (2 or 3 screws). Reach up, there is a little "ring" beneath the door lock. Pull this down, it releases the mechanism.
