Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
The drive motor is locked up . The unit is only about 2years old. My question is ? previous to the motor going out, there was a metallic scraping noise that could be heard when the tub was on the spin cycle. It didn't happen every wash load, but would happen just every now and then. Could something else have caused the premature motor failure?(such as an unballanced tub or other component). Are these motors proned to fail early?
thanks in advance

Tips for a great answer:
Drive Motor Tachometer Error
The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.
