Washer has begun to sound like a four wheel drive vehicle going down the highway at 60 mph. The matching dryer had been squeaking and now has begun a thumping sound.


if it sounds like a jet plane taking off its the drum bearings and you need to replace these bearings,if your lucky you can find just the bearings and lip-seal,if not you will need to but the tub with the front bearing installed already and this gets expensive,otherwise to just replace these bearings and seal alone its about $500.00 to $900.00do it soon as the longer you wait the more labor intensive it gets

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.

"whirlpool duet makes big noise on hi spin cycle and sandy grey staf is coming out from drain hose"


You have a big problem here. It sounds like the bearings on the drum shaft are going. this is over $400 for the back half of the outer drum and you have to be a very good mechanic to get it all apart. I currently have mine apart for the same problem which I verified by opening the door of the washer and lifting the inner stainless steel drum up and down with the machine off, of course. The tub is supported by two large ball bearings on the shaft that is supporting the stainless steel drum, and they don't sell just the bearings and seal, only the back half of the drum. If it has gotten bad enough to rub against the front half of the outer tub, it will probably have to be replaced also, about $120. This was probably caused by overloading the washer or washing something that was unbalanced and heavy; this destroys the seal between the inner drum and the heavy bearings, also not available separately, and lets water into the bearings in the aft outer tub which support the inner tub shaft. If you want to try to take this apart to verify, try looking at Whirlpool consumer services technical education group presents #L-68, Job Aid Part No. 8178076. I found it online. It has detailed instructions how to take this machine apart if you are a technician or a talented amateur, as I am. Good luck.
