Either the top tubs "balance-ring" is leaking the balance solution and needs replacing or the tub springs are broken or disconnected from the tub

the belt might have come off of the tub take it back apart and look underneath and see if the drive belt is loose or on the floor when the tub came loose it probably slipped the belt off before stopping.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Washer GHW9150PWO tub is rubbing

It appears your vibration damper has failed in this instance. (out of oil??)

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

My kenmore dryer makes a loud rattling noise like it has belts with metal buckles tumbling around inside of it.


This happens when coins get inside the metal vanes that tumble the clothes inside the dyer. It can also happen if a belt wears off a strip of the belt that starts slapping the interior walls as it turns. A third way is for one or more of the the rear support rollers of the drum to become worn.
The first two causes can be checked by watching the first minute and 20 seconds to see how to raise the top of the machine. Be SURE to unplug the machine FIRST and not plug back in until FULLY assembled correctly.

Once top is raised turn tub very slowly clockwise (inspect belt for fraying as you turn) until screws show up that attach the inner vanes to the tub wall. Remove these screws to check the interior of the van inside the drum for foreign objects and remove. Complete one vane, reattach and move onto the next. If you don't find ANY objects in the vanes move on in the video to the 3 minute mark and you will see the 2 rear support rollers. Check them for wobbling or tightness and replace if necessary.

The Final Possibility could be a very wobbly idler pulley that needs to be replaced on the floor of the dryer. I have included a picture of the belt configuration if you need MORE disassembly than just the top.

I have a Kenmore top load Elite model # 110.28062800,and was wondering if the wash basket (part # w10118182)is to have water inside of it. I took the basket out to clean the machine and there's liquied...


Tony,
You can expect some light accumulation of liquid in parts of the basket. Keep in mind, this part is housed within the washer outer tub which contain the water as the basket does the crazy things wash baskets do.
Don't know why you feel you need to disassemble a washer to clean it so meticulously. Was it wobbling or not draining or did you just get bored?

I have a Daewoo washing machine which I can not get level. According to my spirit level it is deal level. Then as soon as the machine goes into spin it flies all over the room. It shakes so much it has...


check that the rods holding the tub inside are connected properly and have not become undone or broken or the insulators are still in good condition. If the tub inside is not level then no amount of levelling on the outside will help. Also check the out of balance switch (normally combined with the lid switch) as the machine should switch off after around 6 revolutions of unbalance because as soon as the tub moves a small amount it trips this switch and shuts the machine down

Seems with your observation that the tub is out of shape and so it might be wobbling when it runs. So the only option is to change the tub with a new one but the cost must be confirmed to decide between a new tub or a new washer.
If you can get a salvaged tub it will be economical.
