Front loaders can be expensive to repair. The labor costs can rack up and the parts aren't always the cheapest. However, the little metal retaining ring can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com for a very reasonable price. Look under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading for item number 14 (part number 8182211). If you are talking about the rear clamp that attaches to the wash tub, look for item number 6 (part number 8182210). Neither one of these parts are expensive and the following link gives you step-by-step instructions on how to replace/repair the bellow:

If you want to save yourself the trouble and expense of having someone else do this job for you, take a look at the link and review the cost of your replacement parts. This job is not difficult and you can save yourself from an expensive repair job. I have performed this job in the past and usually runs over $200 with parts (with the bellow being replaced) and labor charges. If the rubber bellow is in good shape, all you need is the clamps. I would doublecheck, however, the clamp(s) may have just come loose. All you might have to do it tighten them. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

PS DO NOT over-tighten the inner bellow clamp. It can break the clamp and/or cause damage to the tub.

Tip

Drive Belt Installation on a Whirlpool Duet or Kenmore Elite Front Loader


This advice is on how to replace the drive belt on Whirlpool Duet and Kenmore Elite front loader washing machines. To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer and turn the washing machine around so you can access the back panel. Remove the rear panel by locating and loosening the screws around the perimeter of the panel.

2. Loop the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.

3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.

4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the drum pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.

NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.

If you have any questions, or are uncertain if these steps apply to your washer (some newer model Maytag front loaders are now manufactured by Whirlpool) please provide me with a model number and I can let you know if these steps apply. I hope this information is helpful.

Whirlpool front load wfw9151yw, I've had it less than a year and the bearings are bad!! Where can I buy bearings? How long is the manufacturers warranty. And what does it cover?


I also had the very same problem with my Whirlpool front loader. This is a common problem and if you have this less then one year they should replace the parts for free. The reason I said parts is because they also had to replace the entire tub and some other parts as well. It took then almost three hours. Thank goodness I have an extended warrentee which I think you shouls also consider.

Whirlpool is a very reliable company and after reading what Ashley sent to you I don't think your going to have any problems.

I just want to mention something to you. If the washer makes noise it could be something else like a clogger drain pump which is easily serviced. The way to tell is to have the washer off and try spinning the tub with your hand if it makes noise then your up for the whole monti.

Good luck,

Marty

Whirlpool duet front loader


Sounds like you have a board problem. If the machine is only 1 month old, you should really have a warranty agent look at it. You don't want to do anything that could void the warranty.
