I have a Whirlpool Duet Washer, Model GHW9100LW1. When it tries to spin at the end of the wash it sounds terrible and can't seem to spin the clothes out.

There must be a sensor that tells it when the clothes have spun out enough, which makes the washer just keep trying endlessly. I have to shut off the washer and put it on the drain/spin cycle. It finally does shut off on it's own but it makes a loud noise while it is spinning.

We cleaned the pump filter and my washer is spinning fine, but it still sounds really bad. Where is the spin bearing located?

From what your describing it sounds like the drain pump filter is clogged or the spin bearing is bad. If the unit cannot drain properly or is in a bind it will not spin up to speed.

I recommend checking the pump filter first. Remember to

disconnect power

. I am sending you step by step instructions from the service manual to access the pump filter. This will include removing the lower service panel. You will need several towels handy before opening the filter.

If the pump checks good, I suspect the spin bearing from what you described. In this case you will want to call in for service. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

The first responder's link is also helpful but is not for this model.
