Washer Making A Lot Of Noise
« on: February 19, 2013, 08:23:22 AM »
Hello, Working on a Model# GHW9150PWO washer and it is making alot of noise... I was told it was a bearing but when I look online at the diagrams I do NOT see a bearing... I see shocks and springs .. Are they maybe the problem? I can wiggle the tub really freely!! Any ideas and how hard it is to fix!! Any help is deeply appreciated as I have not worked on one of these before nonly the old top loads... Thanks in advance for any and all help!!!!

Have them call Whirlpool customer service.  They'll send them the basket and both tub halves. If you're lucky, they'll send it fully assembled. Whirlpool will call you to confirm the diagnosis.  You don't have to be factory authorized to do the job, I've done three of them.

The first one I did was 8 years old but the parts were still under warranty.  The second one was 18 months old with only a one year warranty.  The third was about 4 years old with a one year warranty.  The first two, I had to assemble the tubs and took two hours each.  The third one came fully assembled but was a cramped laundry room so it still took me two hours.  I'd like to get it down to 90 minutes or less. The worst part is getting the tub in and out. It would be good to have a helper.
