A friend of mine sent me a video of their Whirlpool direct drive washer, model number WTW5200V02, making a loud hum in the Delicates cycle (and only that cycle) that starts off very loud and then gradually diminishes as the basket gets up to speed. I haven't been out there yet to see it but here's the video he sent me.
What thinkest thou? Bad motor winding for the delicates speed? Anything else that could possibly cause this kind of noise? He lives way over in Vermont so when I go out, I want to have the universe of bad parts with me so I can get it fixed in one trip.
Domo for any insight and advice!
