Skate Plate

Skate plate instructional free repair video

The skate plate could be the cause why your Whirlpool direct drive washer may be shacking and bouncing all over the place after you washed a big comforter or blanket.

This plate is shape like triangle rides on 3 tub wear pads and is use to give the tub assembly stability.

If the load that you are washing is to heavy it could throw the washer of balance and the plate moved out of place causing the washer to sound like is falling apart.

Calling a repair company to check and repair the washer could be very expensive. Let me show you about how much could be the cost of replacing this part in your washer.

You will have to pay a service call to come to your house and check the washer and that could be about $90.

Then you have to pay for the labor to reinstall it and that could from $60 to $90 an hour with a minimum of 1 hour.

Plus you have to wait in your house until the repairman could get there to do the repair.

The total cost could be about $180 for a repair that you could very easy do it yourself for just the time to watch my video on how to do it and the time to do the repair.

With my free repair videos you could learn how to find out if the skate plate out of place is the problem or not. I also show you how to reinstall it in your Whirlpool made direct drive washer.

Keep in mind that when you have to wash comforters or big blankets it is better to take them to the big commercial washers & dryer at the laundromat.

So, if you are ready to save money and get the washer fixed in no time, click on the video below and watch it a few times until you know how this repair is done.
