Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6800WW1 Agitator makes clunk

3 posts in this topic

I have about a 3 year old Whirlpool Cabrio, which started to make a slight noise as it was in the washing cycle. The noise has gotten worse until now its a full-blown clunk each agitation.

It comes from the front left hand side, and I can make the noise by pushing on the agitator/drum (whatever you call it) and push it to the left on the suspension.

What's broken, and is there a take-apart video or list to fix this?

I very much appreciate your help.

Thanks for the very fast reply.

I noticed the part is actually not listed for that model, but I popped up the top of the washer and I saw those nylon "ball joints" in there, so I assume those are correct part (edit: never mind, I needed to select the suspension pieces).

Now I have to figure out what there's a gap between the top and the rest of the washer when I pushed the top back down. ;)

(edit: never mind, I figured it out. When I first popped the lid, I didn't understand you're supposed to push the spring in, out of the way, so I bent the metal lip. A body hammer was my friend).

Thank you very much!
