Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
I have a washer that is 1 1/2 years old, It had to be rebuilt in March by A&E because the main bearing malfunctioned..... It is now June and the problem is happening AGAIN! Whirlpool didn'treplace the washer before because all the parts were covered under warranty. I have to say that I have VERY LITTLE faith in the Whirlpool product line at this point and won't be buying one again.
To check for a bad bearing, open the door, pull back the door seal then grab the plastic outer tub with one hand and the inner basket with the other hand. If you can lift on the basket and wiggle up and down, the tub bearing is bad. If OK, the noise may be coming from the pump. The pump impeller may have come loose and is rubbing on the pump housing.
To check impeller, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find a pump filter that you can unscrew and remove debris. UNSCREW AND DRAIN SLOWLY as there will be lots of water to catch..
Look inside the small hole of the pump and check impeller, it should be set back against the motor.
If bearing, check limited warranty.. bearing may still be covered...
