set to drain/spin to hear complaint of noise and drain pump came on ,washer started to spin,sounded normal,then after about 30 -90 seconds an amazingly loud noise. pulling the plug out,the washer slowly started to wind down until it stopped.inner tub spins freely manually,dont think theres anything caught between tubs,seems more like a drive assy issue.unfamiliar with this drive system-suggestions? thanks

sorry about that model # screwup. cant post video.this washer may be in warranty,customer claims its 8 mos. old would there be some indication of bearing failure by spinning tub manually?there was no noise when spin started initially .i tried to seperate the tubs,removed the nut with my trusty w/p spanner wrench,removed the screws in the hub,inner lifted an inch or so,but couldnt remove inner tub.does NOT sound like a bearing problem,more like a ratcheting noise

Yet another bad gearcase in a Whirlpool VM washer!?  It's shocking that the stamped metal and molded plastic pieces inside the gearcase aren't more robust!

most of the ones i have see have actually been bad spin bearings, loud noise when spinning.  I find them very easy to change out.
