Loud noise while spinning, sounds like a bad berring

You are absolutely right. Your washer has bad tub bearings, the Cabrio washers are notorious for this problem. The bad news is that the bearings cost over $300 just for the part alone, not including paying a technician to come out and replace them. If you can tolerate the noise then you can continue to use the washer but it will eventually completely go bad, but this will give you time to find a different washer. The top three problems with the Cabrio washer is the tub bearings ($300+), the main control board ($200), and the drain pump cracking and leaking all over the floor ($100).

Hopefully I have helped you out, sorry it wasn't good news.

We have a Whirlpool Duet Sport Front-Loading Automatic Washer and it makes a pretty loud noise when in the spin cycle. The volume is directly proportional as to how fast the washer is spinning. It's a...

The symptoms that you describe are caused by bearing failure. The water seal in the wash tub has failed, allowing water to leak into the bearing causing the bearings to rust. As the bearings start to rust, they will not roll properly and start to make a rumbling sound. The sound get louder the faster the bearing turns.
It a major job to repair since the washer has to be taken apart and the wash drum needs to be removed to replace the seal and bearings. Get a few estimates before deciding whether the washer is worth the cost to repair or replace. Sorry.

Whirlpool Duet WFW9200SQ02 - high speed spin extremely loud!

I have the exact same washer, its also 2 years old, and this last week my bearings went bad too. I actually pulled my washer apart and replaced the stock el cheapo bearings with some better quality ones by Toyo. No, theyre not titanium, I'm a mechanic and I've never even seen titanium sealed bearings before. Not doubting they exist, but I highly doubt youll find them in any residential appliances regardless of make. Upon disassembly, I found what I believe is the issue with the seal, hair. Hair works its way to the drive shaft, slowly works its way into the seal, and then acts as a conduit for the water to enter the bearing cavity. Both sealed bearings eventually have thier grease forced out by water, and fail. This repair is time consuming, but it can save you a LOT of money. Whirlpool only sells a whole new rear tub, at a cost of $408 just for the part. I took it apart and found that the bearings are simply pressed into the steel hub on the rear tub half. I knocked them out, and a local bearings and drives shop had some replacements for me, for $20. I put it all back together, and its running fine. If you attempt this repair, make notes, and mark where everthing goes. You'll need to disassemble a substantial amount of the machine to get the tub assembly out. If youre not able to do the repairs yourself, I recommend buying a new washer, its just not worth spending $6-700 to have a shop do it.

My Whirlpool Cabrio sounds like a jet engine while in the spin cycle

believe the bearings can be bought locally,but water seal has a Whirlpool number on it that will not come up on pricelist on my Whirlpool program.I am looking for a way to cross ref. this seal and repair the tub.The last tub was over 197.00 cost for new tub and drive shaft ,bearings and seal.The bearings are Korean made and can be bought locally for alot less than a whole new tub.This is an ongoing problem with the Cabrios and Maytag Bravos that I have seen lately.Also a few of the Sears Kemores out there.There has to be an easier and cheaper repair for these thousand dollar machines.I dont like telling the customer its going to cost them 400.00 to repair their washer when it is not even a year out of warrentee.If anyone has the seal number or a cross number please post

Whirlpool ghw9100lw2 bearing repair

It is not a hard job to replace the tub. Just time consuming. I replaced the back portion of the tub where the bearing is. If the inner tub shaft has any wear on it , replace that as well. Otherwise youll have the same problem in a month. Its an easy fix if your patient. I paid about $130.00 for the rear portion of the tub. I'm not sure about the inner tub.

Rear bearing noise when drum rotates

If the rear bearing is bad it will require the replacement of the entire rear tub shell. This is because the bearing is molded into the plastic and cannot be replaced separately (I know, its a stupid design). Sometimes additional damage can occur and the inner spin basket and front shell may also need replaced. In addition, what may seem like a bad rear bearing, might be a broken tub support on the spin basket. In a nutshell, you may have to replace both tub shells and spin basket at a minimum. With parts and labor the repairs could cost $600-$800. If you have no extended warranty or service plan coverage, it may not be worth the effort to repair due to the excessive cost. Sorry...I wish I had better news for you. I hopes this provides you with some answers.
