Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer 19 months old.
Started banging during spin cycle. At first I thought that it was just an unbalanced load.
But on close inspection I discovered if I rotated the drum so that one at a time, each of the three segments at the back of the drum pointed down. One was loose.
For each attachment point, pull forward at the front of the drum One position is loose and pulls forward making the banging sound when it drops back. The other two points do not pull forward and appear firmly attached.
The result is that for every rotation of the drum one attachment point at the back of the drum swings out a bit then bangs back as gravity pulls it in when it is at bottom.
My guess is that the Cross piece assemble part 27 appears not to be attached to the drum with part 26 on
one of the three attachment points. Not sure about this.
All I have found is a parts schematic I have no service manual.
Perhaps somebody can give me a better answer
since this repair looks like a complete disassembly
if my assumptions are correct.
It sounds like a couple of the other postings in this
list may also be a similar problem.
Any suggestions are most welcome.
If the the drum feels loose in any way, there are three possible reasons:
1. The pulley nut has come loose. (easily repairable from the rear)
2. The bearing is bad (part of the rear tub).
3. The spinner has come loose from the basket (what you describe)
In cases 2 and 3, the entire drum/tub assembly will have to be removed, disassembled and repaired/replaced.
Check your owners manual for possible limited warranty. Contact Whirlpool for potential warranty repair concessions for case 3 if not covered under limited warranty.
