My whirlpool front end load duet washer has an inner drum which was making increasingly loud noise and now seems loose from the outer drum


Hi,

I am sorry to say that fixing this is a major repair. it involves replacing the inner tub and at least the rear half of the outer tub. Getting to these parts involves almost total dis-assembly of the washer. It takes me 2.5 to 3 hours to do this job generally, and the parts cost is substantial.

If I were you, my first step would be to contact Whirlpool and try to get them to cover the repair, or at least the parts.

If you would like to attempt the repair, I will gladly give you some pointers and help you through it, just be aware that it is a complex procedure.

Let me know if you need more help,

I have a whirlpool Duet washer model GHW9150PW0 that began to thump during the spin cycle. I removed the front and it appears the inner tub is off-center or out-of-round. Further, it has worn off the...


There is a lifetime warranty on this main basket. and 10 years on the outer front and rear buckets. My unit is 7 1/2 years old. and had the same problem. One of those 3 spokes connecting the main shaft to the rear bucket cracked and killed the front outer bucket. Whirpool tried to tell me I needed a professional to diagnose it but I told her the rear outer bucket was cracked, leaking water, and shredded the front outer. She sent me all three parts for $0! It took 2 hours to get apart and that was me being super careful. The parts will be here tomorrow morning! I did needd to buy 2 shocks at $21.00 each.

My whirlpool duet makes an awful banging noise when a load of laundry is in the spin cycle. It is completely level and I cannot figure it out.


reach inside drum that turns and try to move it up and down. If there is any movement the spider at the rear of the drum is broken. Will need inner drum and outer rear tub with bearing and seal.

I have a whirlpool front load duet washing machine. The white plastic around the drum is cracking and the machine is leaking from the front underside. Can this be repaired?


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.

I need a bearing for the ghw9100lw2 is that sold separate from the rear drum


No. the bearing is molded in the rear drum. The rear outer tub runs around $200 and it is not an easy job. I recomend having a technician replace it.

The inner tub is out of balance and rubbing against the outer tub


The rear bearing is part of the back half of the outer tub. In some cases the basket will need replaced also if the shaft is scored. This is a big job. In most cases whirlpool will warranty the parts for 10 years but not the labor. Will need to check in your owners manual. Hope this helps
