The washer wouldnt work and the trouble shooting section didnt help, took the basket strainer out and a large amount of oil came out any thoughts
This unit has no capability to have oil. There is no oil in this unit. The oily substance that you may have seen is if you use a liquid fabric softener then it can gum up and look oily. Any other information we would need to have a description of what is going on with the unit.
Hello, How do I replace the baffles on my Whirlpool 4.0 WFW9150 washer. The baffle number is 8540360. Thanks!
Answer Hello Jimbob! You will need to remove the top off the washer and there is a black hose in the top of the outer tub. You will remove this hose and see if you can access the baffle screw. If so, you can remove the screw, and the baffle 8540360will slide out of the tub assembly. If not, you will need to remove the tub assembly from the unit, and separate the two halves to access the screw and change the baffle. Hope this information helps you. Thanks.
I have a Maytag Front-Load washer and I need to replace the baffle 8182233. Is a screw required to replace it and if so how do I access the inner drum?
Answer Hello Perry. It does not show a screw for this baffle. To access, you will remove the tub assembly from the cabinet and then split the two tub halves to remove the inner basket. Most of these baffles will unsnap from inside the drum assembly.
I have whirlpool duet washer bought in 06 it goes thru the cycle but clothes are wetter then normal makes noise when spinning
Answer Old Lady, If it is a loud, grumbling, growling, rumbling, type noise when the washer is spinning and the tub doesn't get to a very high rpm, to extract the water from the clothes, the issue is most likely a failed tub bearing. This would require a rear outer tub assembly W10253864 in order to have the bearings (it only comes as a complete assembly). If the noise is from the front of the washer and is a lighter grinding or chopping type noise, you'd want to check the drain pump 280187 for objects stuck in the pump or pump filter.
my frontload washer sounds like drum banging side to side what do I look at frist belt or drumbaffel
You will want to pull the tub and check the welds on the inner basket. It sounds like this may be the issue.
HAVE A WHIRLPOOL DUET AND I AM TRYING TO REPLACE A BAFFEL IN MY WASHER THE SLOTS ARE ONLY 3/8 WIDE BUT THE BAFFEL GRIPS ARE 1/2 INCH BUT THE PARTS SAY IT IS RIGHT. HOW DO YOU PUT IT IN
Answer Bob, Here's an excerpt from the APP Repair Forum that should be helpful. " If you have not already finished this repair, here's good news: it's EASY. Go ahead and order those parts. Get the kit with all three baffles -- its likely that the plastic tabs on more than one of them have been damaged, because Whirlpool apparently never installed the retaining screws that hold the baffles in place. It appears to be a common problem. 1) Remove the three screws on the back of the washer for the lid. 2) Remove the lid. 3) A black rubber hose enters the outer drum top and center near the front. Gently remove it from the drum. 4) Through the resulting hole, you can reach the exact spot for inserting the retaining screws for the baffles. 5) One by one, replace the baffles (they drop into place, then need a little force to slide them forward into place) and rotate the inner drum so that the retaining screw hole is visible below the opening in the top of the outer drum.
6) (Without dropping the screws into the space between the drums like I did ), install the screws to retain the baffles. 7) Repeat for the other two. 8) Replace the hose and the lid and its screws and rest assured that you did something that even the Whirlpool assemblers didn't do: install the baffle retaining screws."
