  1. Check for a piece of tableware has penetrated the intake screen at the bottom under the lower spray arm.
  2. Check if pump impeller is damaged, or the pump motor underneath the deck has a bad bearing.
  3. Remove all components including the lower spray arm down to the bottom deck.
  4. At the bottom, there should be a pump impeller that is connected to the motor underneath the deck.
  5. Turn the impeller manually and see if it is noisy, or moves side to side indicating a bad motor bearing.

Note the position and orientation of each piece as it is removed.

Check the compressor mounts and make sure it's seated firmly on the rubber feet. It might have gotten out of place when you moved it.
What I'm 99% sure you have is a compressor that has either a weak spring or broken spring inside.

Loud banging clanking noise durings spins....


Might just be a shock absorbing rod has come loose from vibration. Remove the service panel and run the washer so you can see where the noise is coming from. Your tech sheet will be inside the service pane. I have the tech manual and ID parts photos with error codes for duet HERE. Note use your tech sheet for diagnosis not all are the same.

Whirlpool duet is about one and half years old and starts making a loud metal to metal noise while trying to start after the water had run in. Clank, Clank, Clank Loyd


Hi Loyd.

If the metal noise is like rattling, as first thing check the object trap located behind the trim at the base of the washer. Check also through the basket holes and inside the tub if there is any foreign object stuck that may be causing the noise.

From the description the noise looks more like that of a broken spin basket support, which is a common fault on Duet. This fault will result on a rithmical loud clank that occurrs more or less when the basket is passing through the same position.The basket supports are located at the back side of the basket.To reach the part an almost complete disassembly of the appliance is required. The spin basket and its support is covered by long term warranty (ten years or lifetime).

Call Whirpool at the number listed on the manual, tell them the symptoms and eventually mention that a technician suggested the problem being the basket support, and check conditions for repair. The repair will be probably covered by manufacturer.

Regards.

Ginko.

Duet HT has Knock in Spin cycle


well id be leary myself and honestly not at the machine but the tech(s) that are looking at it. i would put back in for another call request a different company if possible.Theres probably 7-8 authorized Whirlpool service Companies in my area alone. acn demand that the tech call the Technical assistance line if unsure of problem.I cant see telling a cust "normal noise don't worry about". these units spin very quietly.On a side note they were installed correctly??? strange to get 2 with came problem..
