Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
My washer is about 15 months old and was working fine except for mildew on the bellow. I had a service tech out on Friday who replaced it and then on Saturday when I went to do a load of laundry, my machine started making an awful noise in the spin cycle. Another tech was out today and couldn't figure out why it is making this noise. Kinda like out of balance but MUCH worse. Loud, rythmic pounding. He ordered 4 new shocks but I find it hard to believe that the washer was fine until the bellow was replaced and now the first load after that the shocks are blown?? I watched what was happening with the top and lower cover off and the tub is moving so much that the concrete weights are hitting the outer shell. Any help ideas on why this is happening? Is it the shocks and I am just having bad luck? Also when I look on the whirlpool site for replacement shocks, mine do not look like the ones they are showing, are the compatible? Thanks.
If the washer is on a wooden floor...it will vibrate and be off balance..most of the front loader series in the 9100's will only work good on a CONCRETE floor..has to absolutely be level..and your mildew...make sure you run something through the whole machine to clean the drain hose..or you will have more problems..at least once a month

The shocks have been redesigned, however that does seem to be an awful coinicidence that it would happen right after( sounds more like an unbalanced load your trying to wash, perhaps only a few items?? or maybe all light clothes and a heavy item throwing off the balance, but as far as the mildew smell, make sure your using HE detergent, specifically designed for the frontloaing washers, and use this product to clean your machine. www.affresh.com
