Kitchenaid washer KHWS01PWH
« on: October 30, 2011, 08:01:27 PM »
I have a 7 year old washer that started to make thumping noises during spin cycle. :tickedoff: At first we thought it was a load shift but it soon became noticeable during every wash regardless of load size. I took it apart and noticed plastic shavings in the front rubber seal and the inner stainless tub looked off centre to outer plastic tub. Upon further disassembly I found that the rear basket bracket had separated from one of the three legs and cracked through another. JUNK!  >:( Apparently this is very common!?
O.K. I found a bracket for Whirlpool products to replace it but was told that it is not for Kitchenaid?!
Does anyone know if the part W10202464 will fit my washer anyway? It is not worth for me to spend $400 on the entire new basket  W10269756, just to get a new bracket support. For that kind of money I will be buying a new washer and it will not be a Whirlpool product.
Any expert suggestions?

From the pictures the supports don't look at all alike.  If your washer was newer you might be able to get Whirlpool to give you price concession on the part.  Since it's 7 years old they would probably argue that it's reached the end of it's life.
