I have recently bought (from you) P/N WH39X10003 (Mech Hsng Asm – Bearing) & installed & assembled the washing machine back together. When doing first load after repair, their was a very loud squealing noise during wash & spin cycle. Also during spin cycle at top speed is a loud banging sound. I disassembled & re-assembled the washing machine again & noticed the Nut (WH01X10205) had come loose (this goes above P/N WH45X10055 - Hub, Inner Tub), but I still had a squealing noise when rotating the pulsator arm (infusor - WH43X10027). I stuck a big washer between the infusor & nut & this helped the problem, but I’m still having a banging, clanking sound in the spin cycle when it reaches top speed (not as bad/loud as before), also seeing a lot of plastic debris from cover assembly(WH44X10117). Is it possible P/N WH45X10055 is slightly bent & throwing machine off balance at top speed? I’ve been looking at the machine over & over again & this is the only solution I can think off. Maybe it was damaged or slightly bent when Mech Hsng Asm – Bearing (P/N WH39X10003) went bad. It was in very bad shape, all bearing & rubber had come off of it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, AC.
ANSWER Hi Anthony. I will try my best to help you. First of all, yes any part that is bent will unfortunately create a "high-speed-wobble". SO replacing part # WH45X10055. This is the inner tub hub. Ok - then are all 4 of your suspension assembly straight and positioned correctly in the outer tub and in the top of the cabinet frame corners? this part # is WH16X10056. Is the inner basket nut carefully centered and tightened at the same time? The spin basket has to be exactly centered after it is tightened. Don't worry, it will take any pro. tech. a time or two to get it right, just don't get in a hurry. This nut part # is WH01X10205. If The top tub ring is not clipped in place correctly, then it will throw off plastic in operation with a crooked - inner spin basket. The washer under the tub nut is part # WH02X10146. Look over every single piece as you replace the inner tub hub. And lightly greasing the top 4 round corners before inserting suspension arms will take away some of the squeaking noise. I hope this helps you. Thank you.
