Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Washer is 5 years old and making alot of noise during final spin

Washer is 5 years old and is making alot of noise during final spin. Serviceman replaced the shocks but did not solve the problem. He checked everything else and said was ok. Now they tell me the drum is "warped" and I am better off getting a new machine. I only use for typical laundry and have not misused the machine in any way. I'm not very pleased with that as I thought I was buying a solid machine that would last longer than this. What else could it be?

These frontloads are notorouis for having their rear bearing go out... if machine is all level and service told u the tub is bad then i would probably agree.... most of the newer frontloads had a 5yr parts warranty on the tub.....thet rear bearing is actually built in to the rear outer tub so replacing requires allot of labor as one must teardown unit and remove both drums and seperate and install new parts.... i would check your warranty for ur specific options,,, hope this helps

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle


if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

Loud whirring sound


Hi Arts,

You are correct only if (and I assume) it's making a heck of alot more noise than normal during spin. This definitely indicates a failed drive assembly. As you can see from the drawing below, it's a real bear of a job to repair this. Fortunately, if it's less than 5 years old it's a warranty repair! If it's less than 5, click this link for Frigidaire contact info.

If it's over 5? Well Arts? All I can say is that if you are very confident in yourself, good with tools and are very patient then you could do this repair. Otherwise, I'd call an appliance repair shop and ask for a quote/estimate to remove and replace the drive system (it'll be more than you want to spend, I promise you).

I know that this isn't what you wanted to hear, but it is what it is. I put this picture together for you so you could see what I mean...

Loud knocking noise at end of spin cycle


Have you checked the wire harness ,because the tapping of just 2 wires hitting the cabinet is overlooked alot.The noise just 2 wires makes simulates a hammer knocking inside.If the problem isn't escalating than check to see if your tub support arms are all tight.There are 12 of them.

Load noise in final spin cycle


turn the tub on the inside if it feels ruff as it turns and makes a noise then most likely you have a bad rear bearing, if it is smooth in turning and no noise then turn to drain or spin possibly something stuck in drain pump. the drain pump will start up first if you hear the noise then the drain pump is accessed from the front lower cover, if its the rear bearing probably not worth fixing about 400.00 in parts and alot of work.

Noise during spin cycles


GE WPXH214ACC Washer drum makes loud noise when spinning sometimes. We've had it since 2005 & never had this happen before. Washer is level, must stop & redistribute clothes to correct. Just started happening now.
