Whirlpool Front Load Washer noise

Recommended Posts

2 year old washer makes noise on spin.  This is most likely off balance due to shock absorbers.  I know how to replace them.  The other noise, near end of cycle is strange.  See video.  I have not been able to determine cause of this noise.  Any help much appreciated.

Spin the drum by hand listen for bearing noise. Then push up on drum to feel for movement, move the drum and try again, do this 6 to 12 places. This check for cracked arm on spider and/or loose mounting of drum to spider. Check front of drum and tub for rub marks. Hard to tell from video, but sounds like something is between drum and tub.

Vance is definitely pointing you in the right direction.  It might also be valuable to check the rubber door boot and where it attaches to the plastic tub for any rubber shavings.  This is normally indicative of the same failure.  I do not think your problem is attributed to the shock absorbers from the video you posted.
