Re: Drum has dropped about an inch
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

Tearing or holes if tearing pull the bellow forward and inspect the lip of the front tub for rough spots place your hand in the basket and see if you can push upward looking for play should not have any if so tub bearing worn of holes take a flashlight and inspect the SS basket looking for raised dimples.
Could be drum bearings gone Quite a big job hence costly with around 3 hours labour plus parts, some models need half drum as the bearings are loaded in here,leak could be door boot seal at 7 yrs old not sure if worthwhile as its about the end of its working life.Good luck
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)
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
