Question about Whirlpool GHW9400 Duet Washer
I have a new Whirlpool Duet HT front load washer model WFW9400SZ01. The machine is 2 weeks old. From the time it arrived it has an audible knocking sound which is only produced as the drum spins in the spin cycle. The freqency of the knock is directly tied to how fast the drum spins and is metalic in sound - definetly not a water or drain hose knock. In fact the Service Tech who has looked at it had the back panel off while it spined and nothing appeared to be vibrating or hitting against anything. In fact he seemed at a loss to explain what it could be other than say "it's normal - don't worry about it". I'm rather skeptical with his diagnosis. What are your thoughts ? I haven't found anything on the internet about this. Oh, as well ... this is the second machine with this problem, the first one we sent back right after it was delivered. And no, we're not hearing things ! Thanking you in advance ... R.I.
Well id be leary myself and honestly not at the machine but the tech(s) that are looking at it. i would put back in for another call request a different company if possible.Theres probably 7-8 authorized Whirlpool service Companies in my area alone. acn demand that the tech call the Technical assistance line if unsure of problem.I cant see telling a cust "normal noise don't worry about". these units spin very quietly.On a side note they were installed correctly??? strange to get 2 with came problem..
