Are we talking about the off white plastic Tub.? If the the tub is broken this is a very extensive and expensive repair. I would also be concerned about what caused the tub to brake.you could very well have a drum (basket) support or rear bearing issue.If that's the case the parts and the large amount of labor to repair might not be worth the effort

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

  • The basket spider provides support and stabilization for the washing machine's basket. It is located at the back of the basket and has three arms, which are attached to the basket by three bolts. Although the machine's basket is made of stainless steel, the spider is not. It is composed of an inexpensive, white, aluminum metal, also known as "pot metal," which is subject to corrosion. Eventually, the aluminum or pot metal deteriorates to the point where the spider breaks during a wash cycle - accompanied by very loud noises. According to one repairman, the sound mimics that of a car collision. The amount of corrosion behind the basket can be enough to fill a pint container.

Life Expectancy

  • The spider basket in a front-load washing machine does not have a long life expectancy. According to the appliance repair website Suds and Service, pot metal basket spiders in small front loaders, those with a capacity of 16 lbs. to 17 lbs., have a life span of only five to six years. These short-lived basket spiders are found on several washing machine brands, including Kenmore, Frigidaire, Electrolux and White-Westinghouse, as well as Gibson, Tappan, Wascomat and some GE washers.

Replacement

  • Replacing a front-loading washing machine's broken basket spider is expensive. Although the spider is removable from the basket, washing machine manufacturers do not sell the spider as a standalone part, so you must purchase an entire basket. At the time of publication, the price of a basket and spider ranges from $259 to $470 depending on the manufacturer. When combined with labor costs, replacing the basket and spider can cost more than $600.

Braun MP50 juicer problems


I suspect you have solved the problem by now, if not, this worked for me. First unscrew the white center screw. Then as you lift up on the metal basket you should see the black center screw lift slightly. while holding upward pressure on the basket, tap the black center screw down. the basket and cutting disk should pop free. hope this helps.

If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool duet is about one and half years old and starts making a loud metal to metal noise while trying to start after the water had run in. Clank, Clank, Clank Loyd


Hi Loyd.

If the metal noise is like rattling, as first thing check the object trap located behind the trim at the base of the washer. Check also through the basket holes and inside the tub if there is any foreign object stuck that may be causing the noise.

From the description the noise looks more like that of a broken spin basket support, which is a common fault on Duet. This fault will result on a rithmical loud clank that occurrs more or less when the basket is passing through the same position.The basket supports are located at the back side of the basket.To reach the part an almost complete disassembly of the appliance is required. The spin basket and its support is covered by long term warranty (ten years or lifetime).

Call Whirpool at the number listed on the manual, tell them the symptoms and eventually mention that a technician suggested the problem being the basket support, and check conditions for repair. The repair will be probably covered by manufacturer.

Regards.

Ginko.

''whirlpool duet makes big noise on hi spin cycle and sandy grey staf is coming out from drain hose''


you more than likely have a broken tripod leg on the metal basket inside, when it goes into the spin cycle the basket become un balanced and is rubbing on the inside of the front outer tub which is the sandy grey stuff you are seeing.

if its less than 10 years old it should be in warranty and you can have a whirlpool repairman fix it, you would just be reponsible for the labor, which will cost around 300

if you decide to fix it yourself, first take off the bottm panel on the front of the washer, and clean out the drain pump. (i found the cause of my problem in there, and to get the rest of the plastic shavings out. 2screws came off one of the legs of the tripod of the metal basket on mine). next you will want to take it apart, so that you can see the back side of the metal basket, (i suggest taking the shocks off the front and back of the tub asselmbly before as soon as you can get to them, they can break pretty easy.) one of the legs you will find ir broken, corroded, or missing screws.

if you have to replace any parts, the front outer tub is about 100, metal basket is 200, and shocks are 15 a piece at appliancezone.com

The metal basket (inner basket) has a broken spider (these are the support brackets that hold the basket to the bearing shaft). The inner basket will need to be replaced and the front and rear shell of the drum may also need to be replaced depending if any other damage has been done. It's a big job, about 2 hours for a good tech.

The plastic casing (tub shell) around the stainless spin basket should not become worn unless the spin basket is hitting the outer shell. From my past experience, this is usually caused by a cracked or broken spin basket support (spider) arm on the back of the spin basket, or a shot tub bearing (which is also behind the spin basket). The bearing is actually part of the rear tub shell and is molded into the plastic. It cannot be replaced separately and requires the replacmeent of the shell.

If the spin basket supports become broken, the basket becomes off balance and rubs against the outer shell. This results in excessive vibration, which may be the reason why the support shocks were broken. No...this is not normally expected. Unfortnately, this is not a simple or inexpensive repair, either. If you have a service plan, or warranty coverage, I would recommend pursuing that as a repair option. If you wish to repair this yourself, I can post a link for you to follow, but it is expensive. This will usually require the replacement of the following parts:

Spin Basket
Rear Tub Shell (if bearing is bad)
Front Tub Shell (if spin basket caused significant damage)
Support Shocks (I would recommend replacing all 4)

Optional:
Drive Belt Pulley (can become warped or bent)
Drive Belt (if showing signs of wear)
Rubber Door Bellow (if vibration as caused damage to the rubber)

You can go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number to get prices for everything if you like. Everything can be found under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading, with the exception of the rubber door bellow. It can be located under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading.

I know none of this sounds like positive news, but I do hope you find some of this information helpful. Let me know if you need further assistance.

you need to take the top off the washer and look at the surrounding springs that hold the basket in the center of the washer. Sounds like one of them is broken.
