Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
So, I've had a problems with my washing machine for an unforgivably long time. A while (several months) ago, it started making a terrible "banging" noise during what I believe is the short period of time it would "spin down" as it ended a spin cycle.
Someone told me that possibly it was out of balance, but I couldn't figure out how to get to the drum to see if there were balancing weights, one of which might have come off.
In the last couple weeks, it has not seemed to have been rinsing very clean, and as of yesterday I was told that it has now also stopped completely draining, leaving a few inches of water in the bottom of the drum.
My question, then, is this: where should I start? I'm fairly handy, so I think I should be able to do this if I set aside a little time to actually look at it, but I'd really like to have some idea where to start looking. My specific model is the Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ7030LQ0, as I learned from the label inside the lid-rim.
I can't even figure out how to get the top off at this point - the lid seems to be held on by something other than the kind of clips that can be opened with a putty knife inserted in the front of the machine, although I do see a couple neoprene-looking flat pieces a couple inches back from the front edge along both of the two sides... but they look more like spacers than any kind of clips, and no amount of putty-knife maneuvering will get them to budge.
First snake out your drain very well. Next your washer exit hose; then insert this hose into the standpipe maximum 5 inches; and dont seal it up - there should be space for enought air. Don't see any other problem here........

First of all stop trying to pull the lid Off!!!!!!!!!!!!
The banging at the end has nothing to do with how its balanced, and there is no procedure to "balance" a washer tub. However, the banging is caused by grease running into brake assy and are making brake pads grab too hard.
The water not completely draining is strange for this model. Usually they either do or dont drain. Check your drain system, Is the drain hose sitting loosely into a stanpipe or clamped tight?
I think its here youll find the problem.
To axcess any internal components you remove the whole cabinet. Its quite tricky to get back on right, and you cant make it spin without jumping the lid switch with live voltage. To axcess the brakes is a whole lot more tricky, let me know if you want to attempt to axcess and clean the brakes.
