Whirlpool Duet Washer front tub repair
Model Number: GHW9160PW0 Brand:
5 - 10 years
Just took apart our whirlpool duet washer model GHW9160PW0 due to the front tub separating from the basket. It was taken apart from the front. I am shocked at the mold on the outside of the basket and rear tub. The bearing looks ok but I will need to order the front tub part 8181825. I also need 2 or 3 clamps from the shock absorber, can you order just the clamps? I only see part 8181646 which seems like the entire thing.
Also when I put it back together and attach the basket to the springs, is this done from front of the washer or do I need to take the back off also?
Will whirlpool even cover any of these parts? I'm shocked that it broke already and how bad it smells! Is that normal for so much mold and detergent build up to be in the back of the tub?
