My whirlpool Duet 9750 takes a long time to spin out and has a difficult time trying to balance


I owned a Whirlpool Duet and had spin/balance problems when I washed heavy and light items together. During a deep freeze my drain hose froze. Did everything I could think of until I ran hot water through washer. It took awhile to thaw. If your floor is weak, you will have a lot of vibration and walking. Hope this helps.

My whirlpool duet washer hammers very loud when it spins. The outside of the machine doesn't seem to vibrate much but it is very loud.


That is a common occurrence with dryers such as this one. Even though it sounds bad, it is harmless. If it really bothers, you can re-balance the load and it should reduce the vibration.

Whirlpool duet washer went out of balance during the spin cycle


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Washer vibrates during spin cycle


Front loaders have to be situated on solid flooring such as a basement or they will vibrate.

Spin cycle


the machine has sensors within it that detect off balance loads, very possible that the 1 or 2 items are not enough to correctly balance themselves, so the machine will never achieve full speed spin.
