WP Duet washer WFW9450WR00 with torn bellows

3 posts in this topic

To the Dojo,

 

I found this Duet washer with a 360-degree torn bellows--new to me. Also, I found a portion of the top worn very thin--where I believe the tear began. I found gray powder residue around the bellows--as if the bellows had be working around. Anyone else seeing this phenomenon in the field?

 

Thanks in advance,

Tyrus

Yep - something was caught in the fold of the bellow during spin.  Maybe a zipper?  See quite a few bellows with this.

Ditto.  Could be any number of foreign object causing that damage from zippers to bra straps to hoodie strings.  I'm never surprised what I find in these, whether in the bellows or the filter.  Money, glasses, jewelry, pens, nails and screws, golf tees, lighters, and on more than one occasion, ammunition.
