Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Whirlpool Duet metallic rubbing sound

When I turn the drum manually in either direction, there is a metallic rubbing sound. There is no noticeable friction or resistance. The last load may have included stuff like metal hair clips from my daughter's pockets. I suspect one of these to have gotten loose from the pocket and and then gotten in between the drum and the drum housing, whatever it's called. I have tried using a flashlight to look thru the holes but I can't see any foreign objects. Is there a way to "get inside" the drum housing to remove whatever is in there or should I just call the repair guy?

I have a Duet Whirlpool Front-Loading Washer and the last couple of days I've noticed there has been water in the drum. I ran it through just the drain/spin cycle it appears to remove the water only to...


Sounds like you have a seal issue. Try and shut the water from the back connection off after you do a load. I believe that it sounds like you have a leak from the gasket and it is letting water in when you don't want it there. If the water isnt there then we have narrowed the issue. Please let me know what happens. Hope it helps!

My whirlpool duet washer make a loud banging sound during spin - louder when it goes into super spin


It sounds like the spider or support arms that hold the wash drum have failed and the drum is hitting the wash tub when it is spinning. Try spinning the inner drum by hand and listen for any thumping sounds as it turns. Also examine how it turns, if you notice that is wobbles as it turns, it also means that the supports are failing.

It can be fixed but it might be expensive. Get a few estimates before deciding to repair or replace. Hope this helps you.

Dryer sounds like metal rubbing, drum in a bind. The drum is turning, but making a sound, like metal to metal, especially when it starts up.


You have a bad drum bearing. When it heats up the sound goes away slightly. When the drum bearing goes bad it tilts the drum in the front and it is rubbing on the metal front. Check the seal in the front. You could use lub spray but that is only preventing the inedible-replacement. Good luck.

Duet dryer drum rubbing


There is a felt seal on the drum that might be wore and will need to be replaced.(Note if not replaced it will ware your drum and ruin it.
It is something you will probably want a repair man to check out for you.

Whirlpool GEW9200 dryer makes loud whining noise...


It might be metal on metal. It is possible that something worked it's way from inside the drum it between the drum and the rest of the dryer. There's just a couple of srcews that holds the back and top on to the dryer. Take them out after un-plugging the dryer, and consider plugging it back in and running it to see if you can here where the squeek is coming from.

Noisy "rubbing" sound...


it may need a good lubrication job. look for all rolling parts metal or plastics and give a good dose of WD-40 and observe. ba particular to the bushing of the drive motor, the roller and the center bearing that hold the drum.
