Question about Whirlpool GHW9100L Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Sears gave me an estimate of $1439.65 to repair machine by replacing the following: 1 SUB TUB-OUTE - 213.82 1 GASKET - 12.16 1 SUB TUB-OUTE - 411.91 1 SUB BASKET - 492.69 1 BELT - 25.94 + LABOR 193.50 This seems outrageous to me. It is only 8 years old and they want more to fix it than it cost me to buy one brand new.

Check your warranty. We just had that problem, with the exact same parts replaced, but the outer tub has a ten year warranty, and the basket a lifetime warranty. We just paid labor and for one belt. Our washer is also almost eight years old.

LEAKING SOAPY WATER


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the section for the basket and tub assembly's

I'd pull the cabinet in order to get to the hoses going to and from the pump first.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131


I'd also check the gaskets at the bottom of the tub.

If you're reasonably mechanically inclined, these are easy fixes.

If you have to get to the gaskets at the bottom of the tub, see the following for how to remove the agitators, pump, motor, transmission, spin tube and basket.

(It sounds a bit complicated but it's not really that difficult.)

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

You don't have to buy a special spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked over one of the tabs on the spanner nut, tap the handle with a hammer and it should loosen.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer. Use a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap up on the wood.

As an aside, see the following Whirlpool Service Manual for top load direct drive washers.

Depending on the problem (hoses or gasket) it's certainly less expensive than calling in a repair person.

Black debris particles sticking to clothes

It's very un-likely that the Motor Coupler can cause black spots on clothes. It's far enough away from the tub and basket that even if it were wearing, the black rubber would drop to the floor instead of moving up.

It could well be the gaskets in the outer tub.

Depending on the problem (likely gasket) it's certainly less expensive than calling in a repair person and gives you a chance to thoroughly clean the washer.

While you have the washer apart, it might be a good idea to replace the motor coupler again. (A $15 - $20 part)

My Kenmore is 11 years old, it is leaking water on the floor.


I didn't see your complete problem description but I assume it has to do with some sort of leak.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the section for the basket and tub assembly's. You should also see the parts and Sears prices.

I'd pull the cabinet in order to get to the hoses going to and from the pump first.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131

If the hoses are fine, check the shaft from the motor to the pump and check inside the pump to make sure the inlet and outlet aren't blocked.

I'd also check the gaskets at the bottom of the tub.

If you're reasonably mechanically inclined, these are easy fixes.

If you have to get to the gaskets at the bottom of the tub, see the following for how to remove the agitators, pump, motor, transmission, spin tube and basket.

Depending on the problem (hoses or gasket) it's certainly less expensive than calling in a repair person.

If this is a basic top load, direct drive machine, from a repair viewpoint, these are very good machines and relatively easy and inexpensive to fix.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump

removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Also see the following for how to remove the cabinet and gain access to the pump.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?

newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=134&osCsid=b547cd9bb24b4ffaef51e860554a9cb0

Check the areas for the motor and pump and the Agitator Basket and Tub.

If you've checked the hoses to and from the pump the problem points to either the pump itself or to the Centerpost gasket.

Neither of these is too difficult to replace, the Gasket requires removing most parts of the washer although the pump is an easy replacement.

My Whirlpool Cabrio sounds like a jet engine while in the spin cycle


believe the bearings can be bought locally,but water seal has a Whirlpool number on it that will not come up on pricelist on my Whirlpool program.I am looking for a way to cross ref. this seal and repair the tub.The last tub was over 197.00 cost for new tub and drive shaft ,bearings and seal.The bearings are Korean made and can be bought locally for alot less than a whole new tub.This is an ongoing problem with the Cabrios and Maytag Bravos that I have seen lately.Also a few of the Sears Kemores out there.There has to be an easier and cheaper repair for these thousand dollar machines.I dont like telling the customer its going to cost them 400.00 to repair their washer when it is not even a year out of warrentee.If anyone has the seal number or a cross number please post

Inside the washing machine "tub" there is a black scummy ring at the top....can't get rid off. Seems like its a rubber ring that is disintegrated.

If you look at the section for the Agitator and Tub, you should see a part called the Tub Seal. This could be what is disintegrated.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet and Tub Ring in order to get to it.

Sears has part numbers for either the complete tub ring and gasket or just the gasket.

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you hav removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.
