Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Drum has dropped about an inch

I"ve had a Duet for about 3 yrs. The drum drops and the washer stops. I can pull it back up into place and it will work for a few more loads and then the same thing happens. It has a new boot.

Sounds like the stabilizer arms that suspend the drum are broken or have come off you should be able to fix it yourself if you can figure out how to get into the machine i think you go from the bottom or there will be a panel to unbolt on the back

Drum suspension failure


The suspension spring of the drum has come off and this means that the drum is hanging off the center.
The drum is hung with spring and shock absorbers and if one side has come off it will be off balanced. The springs are hung from the corners of the BODY FRAME. Check this out, replace spring if the end had broken or also you can use a good plier to extend the spring head to be clipped.( if broken)

How do you clean out the baffles filled with lint in the Whirlpool Duet dryer?


To remove the dryer drum baffles on a Whirlpool Duet, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer.

2. Remove the top panel of the appliance by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.

3. Locate the bolts that hold the baffles in place on the outside perimeter of the drum. There should be 2 for each one.

4. Remove the screws for the baffle and it will come off.

HELPFUL HINTS:

1. Remove ONE baffle at a time so you can use the remaining baffles to turn the drum manually.

2. Drum rotates in a clockwise direction.

3. When removing or reinstalling each baffle, duct taping it place will keep it from flipping around when you get to the last bolt holding it in place. It will also keep it from dropping in the drum when removing, and help you hold it in place to reinstalling.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Whirlpool Duet Sport Front-Loading washer stopped working. This morning it gave an F-25 error. We've unplugged it, plugged it back in, and I tried draining it but the drum seems like it's caught on...


http://www.assuredparts.com/WhirlpoolDuetWasherFaultCodes.htm

These are the fault codes for whirpool. The noise problem is what is bothering me.You can pull the bottom front panel, three screws and see if you have a problem with the wiring harness to the motor, also remove the clean out filter on the water pump and clean that out,(large 3 to 4inch diameter white plastic screw almost dead center and to the left of the pump motor). I would also pull remove the backing plate and check where the drum pulley attaches to the shaft, see if it is broken or makes noise as you turn it. You may see water or brown streaks coming from the bottom of the main bearing shaft assembly, This is a major repair. l would recommend you have a technician check this out, you may have a bad main bearing assembly, bad motor, or bad pump (unlikely) but you need a technician for most of these. I have also seen a sock between the inner and outer drum, causing the drum not to spin up to speed. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

How to replace the belt on a whirlpool duet washer


To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and remove the rear panel.

2. Place the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the drive motor pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer Banging During Spin Cycle


If the the drum feels loose in any way, there are three possible reasons:
1. The pulley nut has come loose. (easily repairable from the rear)
2. The bearing is bad (part of the rear tub).
3. The spinner has come loose from the basket (what you describe)

In cases 2 and 3, the entire drum/tub assembly will have to be removed, disassembled and repaired/replaced.

Check your owners manual for possible limited warranty. Contact Whirlpool for potential warranty repair concessions for case 3 if not covered under limited warranty.

Drum dropped


Are you able to lift the inner drum back into position ? If so then the culprit is most likely within the trunnion or spin bearing assemblies. Dis-assembly can be tricky but it is possible to do this yourself.
