Whirlpool duet shredding and causing pulls on clothes

We have a three year old duet. It came with the house we just moved into so I don't know its history. The washer is causing pulls in all of our shirts and has literally shredded many of our new towels and completely disintegrated a throw blanket. I have made sure there is nothing rough on the interior of the drum, not overloaded it and also have run it on "delicate" to no avail. Any thoughts?

Re: Whirlpool duet shredding and causing pulls on clothes

I am an engineer. Our machine developed the same problem. I traced it to manufacture "flashing" around the inside periphery of the fiberglass casing in which the steel drum spins. It looks like the flashing wasn't well trimmed off after the fiberglass casing came out of the mould. I used first my finger then a mirror to locate the rough fiberglass edges. Then I used a Dremel tool with a medium wheel to trim the flashing, taking care not to let the particles drop into the drum or become enmeshed in the bellows folds. Ended by sanding a smooth edge on the lip. All well now. Diagnosis; poor manufacture/assembly - a trait not rare in Whirlpool products.

Ytek.netwe just moved into a house with a duet washing machine- a few years old. when we do a normal clean cycle, it doesnt appear there is that much water getting used. How much water should we see thru...

All front loaders use very little water as a opposed to a top loader that uses up to 45 gallons per load a front loader uses about 10,plus a front loader cleans clothes very well with that minimal water usage.
The major question is do the clothes seem to come out clean when you have used that washer?

When the washer spins it makes a banging noise and the plastic around the tub shaves off

Thank you! We took our Duet 9150 apart and found that ALL THREE support arms were cracked. Same problem with shredded front tub also. My washer is a little over 7 years old. I called Whirlpool at the above number (you can't get "warranty service" but the parts service lady transferred me to the warranty dept). They were most helpful, and are shipping me both the metal tub AND the plastic which the metal destroyed, free of charge. Apparently your experience has shown them they have a problem with this...or I got a more helpful service agent!

My whirlpool duet washer will not completely drain the water out of the soap dispenser. It is five years old

You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

My whrilpool duet washer is flashing a error code of h and f

I found that my washer would not drain which is why I was getting the F02 code. I first pulled the strainer to see if it was plugged and it wasn't. I turned the little impeller to the right of the housing and it was free moving but it moved in and out as well as turned. That made me curious. I then to a shop vac and pulled on the drain hose at the wall hook up. It pulled and I could put my hand inside the strainer housing and felt the suction.

This led me to my last tought which was to pull the pump off the strainer housing. It only took three screws and when I pulled it I saw the impeller. When I pulled pack on the impeller it cam right out of the motor and I could see the end of the shaft had sheared and the grinding sound I heard was the shaft ends grinding and it was not able to move any water from the basin.

Im now looking for a new pump cause Im sure its one unit. So far they are over $100 for the complete housing and pump. Im hoping I can just find the pump.

Allergic to detergent for front loaders

I have always used regular Tide powder in mine and my kids use Tide liquid in it. You just need to use about half as much. My man is a motor head so he gets DIRTY and I have three teens so I wash a lot of very dirty clothes. My clothes get very clean and I have never purchased the "special" Detergent.

I have had my Duet for three years.
