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?

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.

My Whirlpool Duet washer is leaking from the


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.

Duet Vibrates the whole house on the spin cycle. it has started this only when we recently moved.


The key statement that you made was the fact that you recently moved. Some questions you may ask yourself:

Where was your washer installed in your old home as compared to where it is installed now?

Did you re-level the feet after you moved the washer?

Did any of the shock mounts come dislodged during the move?

Is the flooring in your new home substantial enough to handle the weight and spinning action of a front loader?

The following link can give you some things to consider when trying to figure out what may be causing excessive vibration:

You may not like hearing some of this, but I can assure you, I have dealt with this problem numerous times. In the majority of cases, substantial flooring was causing the problem.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find the information helpful in some way.

Need bolts to stabilize washer for move


Dont know if you can purchase these. First people to try are the manufactures. Otherwise, unscrew the two screws at the rear top of machine and pull backwards to remove top.Then pack some towells or rugs around the drum then replace top. Don,t forget to remove rugs at new home.!! Good luck on your move.

Cannot remove CCU


1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off.
3. The CCU is located directly behind the wash tub.
4. With the new CCU in hand, carefully disconnect each connector from the old CCU and swap them one at a time with the new CCU. (This is the easiest method I know of to do this. This will avoid the possibility of getting any connectors crossed).
5. Once you have all the connectors moved to the new CCU, use a screwdriver to lift up on the release tabs that hold the old CCU to the mounting bracket and remove.
6. Now carefully insert the new CCU with all the connectors in place on the mounting bracket and snap into place.

Another method is to use a digital camera to take photos, or use the tech sheet that is located inside the washer (behind the lower panel under the door). The tech sheet should have an illustration showing all the connector locations.

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.
