WTW6500WW1 Noisy in spin mode

4 posts in this topic

Washer is noisy in spin cycle.  New to this model series.  Client says unit is throwing 'grease'.  Not sure how that could be - rubber pieces perhaps?  Not sure.  No experience with this model.  Any help on the diag and direction for repair appreciated.

Most likely a failed outer tub seal and bearing.  This is the Cabrio top load washer without an agitator. Average repair cost of the job is around $400 and take 2 to 3 hours to complete the repair.

You can either replace the whole outer tub assembly:

OR

 

You can just replace the bearing and seal kit:

If you never did one before, allow yourself plenty of time and patience.

First time, allow two hours to replace the bearing assembly.  And $400 for the total job is a reasonable fee to charge.  This video will help:
