Question about Washing Machines
I have a Whirlpool Duet model GHW9250ML0. Looks like vibration caused the best to come off the pulley. When I reinstalled, it turns out the pulley is loose - it looks like it's supposed to be loose (about 5 or 10 degrees rotation perpendicular to the shaft is built in) but it flops around parallel to the shaft axis. I can't tighten the bolt enough to prevent this flopping so when I start up the machine, the belt slides around on the pulley, making a nasty squeaking noise and pulling the shaft and drum out of balance. The bearing seems okay, but it almost seems like I'm missing a big washer that would allow me to tighten the bolt a bit more. The shaft does seem slightly worn, but not excessively. Any thoughts or experience?
No pulley should have that much clearance or movement....Something is seriously worn. Perform surgery and find out what failed.
you will have poor performance until you get this issue resolved and tighten the belt correctly.
