Thanks for the reply but there is no noise when shaking the inner basket.The noise that this whirlpool duet washer is making only happens at high speed for about the last minute of a cycle.Thas the first thing I checked when I looked at the unit..........

Well, I was just sharing some thoughts. I have seen the spider only make noise at higher speeds when it's not completely broken. I'm sure the pros will come up with something.

Could you post a video of the noise it is making, It's hard to get a grasp of this discription. If you think the belt is slipping, pull the unit out from the wall, take the back cover off and watch it through a spin cycle with a load, so that for sure it will make the noise. I would run it through a rinse/spin cycle for the test, so that the clothes are wet, use something heavy like towels or jeans for the test. You can also take off the front bottom pannel, and watch the suspension shocks as well, during this test.

 

it is possible to have the bearings be bad, and not be able to move the spin basket, around.

OK Thanks,

I will post the video as soon as I can.Did I mention that when it is filling,

water pours out underneath the dispenser.I think it is a separate problem but not sure yet.

Thanks for your help

check for a sock stuck in between the basket and the tub in the upper left corner, this is where the water fills from the dispenser, can make funny noises and also cause water to come out dispenser if it is stuck in front of the hose

It could also be coins, or other foreign objects that were left in pockets stuck in between the inner wash basket and the outer tub making that noise.

Sounds like a drive board or motor feedback issue.

I totally agree with sh2sh2 on this one!!!

 

The sock or whatever is whizzing around between the front of the drum and outer tub shell causing the water to back up when it gets hung up at the water inlet.  The noise sounds like whatever it is gets held, probably at the rubber water inlet flume hose and when it comes loose makes the WHOP WHOP noise as it rides around the tub then hangs up again.

OK Went back to customers house and solved the dispenser leaking problem ,however the noise was still there but this time it sounded more like a bearing noise so I told the customer what it was.Strange symptom for a bearing.Too expensive to repair.Iam thinking that when it gets to high speed spin towards the end of cycle that the bearing begins to act up

Did you have to remove the dispenser and the dispenser feed tube to solve this problem?  If so, you may would have found that sock stuck in the upper left quadrant of the boot like Brother sh2sh2 pointed out...

Master,

I removed the feed hose and found nothing.Iam still baffled by this repair because after I removed hose and put back, the leaking stopped from dispenser.

The noise was there long before the leaking problem presented itself
