Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Sounds like there is a marble or coin in drum

When we used the washer yesterday, it sounded like there was a coin or marble in the drum when it spins. Even when we took off the clothes, and just turned the drum, the noise was still there. Something that sounded like marble. Should we call a repair man. We thought a clothe pocket had a coin we forgot to remove before washing but don't know who it couldve gotten behind the drum.

Remove the heater which is held by 1 19mm nut in the centre and prize out carefully with a screwdriver. you can then see the gap between the drum and the tub and fish out whatever is in there. a common problem

Can I safely use my washer if I hear something metal scraping during spin cycle?


You can, but I wouldn't. The outer skin of the drum is made of plastic. If it is a coin, it could dislodge, get caught again in mid spin and punch a hole straight through the plastic.

Get a flashlight and look between the seal and the outer drum when you open the door.

I heard a noise that sounded like it was grinding marbles and now it will not work and there is water in the washer.


Peggy,
“”I heard a noise that sounded like it was grinding marbles and now it will not work and there is water in the washer.””
With the washer not working do you have an error code to the LED display? Can expand on the washer not working?
Do you here the grinding noise in wash/agitate cycle when the tumblers are turning?
If so you need to remove the tumblers and see if there are any coins under the tumblers. See page 37 of the Service Manual.
The SM doesn’t call out the torx driver size required for tumbler removal it’s a #20 torx driver.
You can enter into Service Mode and empty the wash water with this process.
To pump out the excess tub water;
I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub.
Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”
Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key.

WF218ANB noise like a bag of rocks being shaken.


This is a direct result of Samsung's Vibration Reduction Technology(VRT). There is a hoop at the front and the back of the drum holding 18 ball berrings in each hoop (36 in total). These balls use centrifugal force and automatically move to the opposite side of where the load is unbalanced and balances it out. It is only in the washing machines, not dryers.

Front load washer sounds like a marble is loose


You washed something from your pockets. coins, marbles, I even removed a nail clipper before. Use a flashlight and try to look through the holes. If you can get front panel off. Put light under tub and see if you can see something that way.

you'll need to investigate further. It may even mean bringing in a professional to be sure the vibration damper rods are ok - to prevent future and costlier problems.

Washer sounds like marbles are in it when it spinns


look for an underwire bra wire it will be sticking in the drum
if you cant find it through the drum you may be able to reach whatever is causing the noise through the heater element opening in the tub

Whirlpool duet washer has rock, marble, or something stuck inside


as long as your sure its an item between the tub assy the baffles in the drum can be removed and item fished out. but ifsomething snapped on the rear of the drum you would need to replace it. the baffle part number is 8182233, its about $40 thinknin thats worth a try before 475. the lower acess panel could also be removed and the main tub to pump hose could be removed which would give you a 3in hole to look through and try to grab somethin. worth a try

Spin cycle noise


coins inbetween bowl can be a problem
try tacking machine outside empty of all water
tip upside down sometimes gets the coins out
otherwise you need to pull machine apart
try another way
remove from bellows from machine and turn bowl by hand to remove coins
have fun
