Replacing the drum support spider and shaft only without the complete basket in a Whirlpool Duet Sport washer


If the machine was quite in spin before the spider broke then most likely seal and bearings are OK.

You don't have to replace the complete spin basket with the spider attached,(ref#11), in the Duet SPORTS. You can purchase just the spider/shaft assembly for the Duet SPORTS, ref#27 in the parts break down picture.

Much more of a reasonable price and also don't get hit with an extra $50+ shipping charge for over-sized package shipment.

Spider only - $62.95

Replacement analog pressure switch for the Whirlpool Duet Steam washer to fix F35 and "SUDS" errors


The original pressure switch for this washer has been discontinued which has created a conundrum for those with the F35 or SUDS error codes. Here's the work-around:

Well the part number W10312527 is a replacement with a little work.

(maybe just a plastic key tab on the connector that could be cut off?).


that is correct, the tech had to snip a little plastic off so the key type insert would fit.
The machine worked fine with this part. The washer was a Whirlpool WFW9600TW00

Good Luck

How to fix a Maytag Neptune MAH6700AWW washer that won't start a wash cycle and keeps cycling the drain pump over and over

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 14 July 2011 · 1,458 views


i pulled the pump cleaned the sludge out it just keeps cycling the pump over and over again



Sounds like the machine still thinks it's full of water, locate the little tube going to the water pressure switch and see if it also requires de-sludging, or the switch itself may have cratered

How to fix a Kenmore (made by Frigidaire) top-loading laundry center that squeals like a bad opera singer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 13 July 2011 · 576 views

Most likely the spin bearing.
It's attached to the center of the
outer tub....complete dismantle
of the unit.

I would also recommend that if you are going
to do the repair that you also replace the seal.
