Our new Whirlpool Model WFW 9050XW00 front loader chews up clothes. Has destroyed two polyester fleece jackets so far.

    When clothes are destroyed, we find small bits of grey synthetic rubber in the boot near the washer door. No sharp edges or rough surfaces are visible or can be felt inside the inner drum.

Hi

Clothes gets ripped or torn when they are caught in between the inner and outer drums. Make sure the washer doesn't have any rough edges inside the inner drum. If your washer is less than an year old then you can get the repairs done for free. However, the washer drum carries warranty of around 3-4 years, you can still get the drum replaced without paying for the parts. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need further assistance.

    Hi



    The rubber bits would be from the rubber gasket connected between the drum and door opening. I would suggest you to call whirlpool for warranty and get the washer or drum replaced.



    Hope this helps...

How to sew on fleece


Be sure to put in a brand new needle (Ballpoint or Microtex) and use a good quality polyester thread.

Lighten the presser foot pressure (if your machine has that capability). If that is not possible, you might find using a walking foot will keep the top fabric from "pushing" in front of the foot.

Here are some additional hints that may be helpful:

I just need a user manual for the whirlpool w500 front load washer


Most Whirlpool manuals are available from http://www.whirlpool.com/owners-center/owners-center-homepage.content.html . However, w500 is the series and you need the model number. It will start WFW (Whirlpool front washer). Check inside the door on the rim of the washer tub for this information.

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool Duet Model #WFW 8300 SW01 (noise in drum on high speed-sounds as if it has a chain or something inside rattling. How do we get a manual or parts book?


Overfilling loads can cause small objects like pins, coins, and small socks to get between the tub abd Basket of your washer.

The basket is held onto the rear half of the outer tub simply by the bolt to the main pulley.
Remove the bolt, remove the pulley, and the basket shaft should slip right out of the bearings of
the rear tub.

Simply shining a light around between the basket and outer tub should confirm that there is something in there, since you have access to do this with
the front tub removed. Go ahead, remove the pulley and bolt, and if
the basket comes out, then check everything out.

If it doesn't, don't try pounding it out; stop there and go to plan B, which is a new basket
and tub assembly.

We have a Whirlpool awm8143 model front loader. works fine


this could signify that you have the outlet hose to far down the outlet pipe of the machine, or if you have it plumbed in to the plumbing under the sink you could have dirty sink water flowing back into the machine
