Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My Whirlpool Front Loader Washer started making a loud noise during the spin cycle. A repairman came today and said that the tub was loose and needed to be replaced because it was hitting the side and front and pieces of the white sealing material were in the washer. Would we be better to repair or buy a new washing machine. This GHW9150P was in our home when we purchased it two years ago. We are not sure of the age of the machine.

You don't need a new tub...you need new shocks! Take the bottom kick panel off, three screws, #20 torks bit, and you will see the shocks. If there is excessive movement by hand, replace the shocks. While you're down there, open the drain pump filter and clean it out. It is located at the center of the mahcine, under the tub and is about an inch and a half in circumference. Be prepared for water coming out of the filter! This should help if you are having white sealing material in the washer. If this is the door seal, you will want to replace that as well, ($100) dollar fix. This machine is about a thousand dollars new, so a few new parts are worth it.

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.


Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

Washer making loud noise and wont spin


Check and see if the inner drum is loose and floppy.if it is, it's likely the bearings have collapsed, and require replacement...If the drum feels stiff and tight, it could be that something is jammed between the inner and outer drums. Both situations could be costly...Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles


I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.

NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.

Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

Can anyone help.???
