Top Removal

1. Disconnect power supply to unit.
2. Remove 2 10mm screws from washer back.

3. Slide Top Cover towards the rear to clear the screw

head from flange on the bottom side of the Top
Cover.
You will see two suspension springs, one on each side of tub. Ensure they are secure.
Make a visual inspection of unit.

Motor nut check and rear struts

1. Disconnect power supply to unit.

2. Remove two screws attaching Back Cover and slide
cover up and lift bottom edge out of retaining slots.
3.Check the tightness of the rear pulley bolt.
Tighten if necessary.
4.There are two rear struts that are on each side of the tub.....ensure these are secured. Push top of tub down slightly to ensure they move freely up and down.

If you haven'y found any issues....plug machine back in,with rear cover off, start a spin cycle and watch from rear. This should show you just what is happening.

Please post results.

My whirlpool duet washer hammers very loud when it spins. The outside of the machine doesn't seem to vibrate much but it is very loud.


That is a common occurrence with dryers such as this one. Even though it sounds bad, it is harmless. If it really bothers, you can re-balance the load and it should reduce the vibration.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P knocks when spinning


I had that problem while the washer was under warranty. Luckily my neighbor is a repair man. He removed the front cover just under the door. There are shocks under the barrel that keep it aligned. One of mine was damaged and the barrel became misaligned. Check that area, that might be your problem. Good Luck!

Duet HT has Knock in Spin cycle


well id be leary myself and honestly not at the machine but the tech(s) that are looking at it. i would put back in for another call request a different company if possible.Theres probably 7-8 authorized Whirlpool service Companies in my area alone. acn demand that the tech call the Technical assistance line if unsure of problem.I cant see telling a cust "normal noise don't worry about". these units spin very quietly.On a side note they were installed correctly??? strange to get 2 with came problem..
