2004 Whirlpool Duet Washer model # GHW9100LW1 making knocking noise on spin cycle

12 February 2012 - 02:48 PM

Hello, my 2004 Whirlpool Duet washer started making this knocking noise a short time ago. Everything else works perfectly. The noise is basically just an annoyance when the washer spins. I took the top off and the front panel off and watched it. Nothing is broken off or loose. One shock absorber on the back right side has a small dab of oil/fluid around it but other than that, it appears to be working well. When i spin the drum by hand counterclockwise, it makes the noise slightly, but when i spin it clockwise, it makes the noise a little louder. When the washer is running, it gets alot louder. The noise sounds like it is coming from inside, between the drum and the outer shell, but it does not sound like a clothing sound such as a zipper , button or money. It's more of a rubbing or bumping together sound which doesn't move around.This washer is 8 years old and i have friends who have gone thru 3 washers in that time and refuse to buy another front load design.I've had good luck and i just want to make sure it's not going to "FLY" apart and kill someone while spinning. Oh, and it is level, that was the first thing i checked.
