Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

My Whirlpool Duet (WFW8300SW02) has started making a bad bearing type noise when spinning and not it will not spin the drum with heavy wet loads. The drum is very loose inside. It will spin when empty but not with any type of heavy load. Can you tell me what that would be and what I need to do to repair it? Thanks

SOURCE: New Whirlpool Duet Washer(WFW9300VU02) F28 error

You can call whirlpool for service but the tech sheet f28 has a communication problem from you computer to the motor..

The communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and
the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly.

Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and
Central Control Unit (CCU).
Check connections of the CCU board within the housing.
Make sure all grounding switches are engaged.
3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components.
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any
cycle.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted
upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing
the MCU connectors.

SOURCE: Eurotech front loading washer, noisy on spin cycle with load.

My eurotech washer has an inner and outer stainless steel drum. The inner drum is supported in the back by cast aluminum supports. (like many other models). The cast aluminum carodes and weakens and breaks. You may find pices of this in the strainer. Not hard to replace and not expensive but very difficult to get the part. Eurotech has been out of the part for months.

Loud noises during spin cycle. Drum is eating up. All springs and shocks appear to be ok


The water seal has worn out and water has gotten into the bearings. You need to call a service tech to have it repaired. It is not a cheap repair. Whirlpool has a repair that replaces the back half of outer tub and a new inner tub or basket one in the same. Another salution is replace the seal and bearings, still a lot of labor. go to utube and a guy does to an LG, but the the repair is about the same for a Duet

My whirlpool duet makes an awful banging noise when a load of laundry is in the spin cycle. It is completely level and I cannot figure it out.


reach inside drum that turns and try to move it up and down. If there is any movement the spider at the rear of the drum is broken. Will need inner drum and outer rear tub with bearing and seal.

Sounds like a Harley when it spins, still spins though.


If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise is louder when it spins faster, then it is not a Harley inside your washer, it is the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, probably drum bearing spider had broken.

On a front load the drum bearing is located at the back of the drum.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Whirlpool Duet washer...after problem with it getting out of balance due to not draining and trying to spin with a heavy load, I have since noticed if I place my hand inside the tub..it will spin freely...


Your original problem is likely to have damaged the bearings and the spin tub shaft... the shocks can fail, but that would not affect the fitment of the shaft and bearings.

Whirlpool Duet Front Loader won't get up to spin speed


Careful of overloading the front-loading washers. Too much of this will result in the bearings in the drum to go bad. When this happens, the rpms on the drum slow down due to belt slack. You can only see this with the back off of the unit and in the middle of the cycle. They do not sell replacement bearings...you'll have to buy the whole drum (bearings pressed inside) and for 1/2 the cost of a new washer. I hate front-loaders. I'll never buy one again.
