Have a Whirlpool Duet HT Washer Model GHW9200LW0. Dryer stacked using
Whirlpool kit Banging or knocking at low speed spin only, noise stops as spin speed
increases. Minimal vibration in all cycles, unit near perfectly level. Performs
well- clothes clean, undamaged, relatively dry after spin. Can you help me,
wise one?

This was a recent topic of discussion in the Samurai Appliance Repair Forums. The problem really boils down to inadequate floor support and harmonic mechanical vibrations set up between the washer during the spin cycle and the floor. Read all about it ratcheer.

How about control lock on duet washer? Mine is stuck on control lock and I cant get it off.

Try pulling the plug on the washer for about 15 minutes and plugging it back in. If that doesn’t clear the control lock, then you need to replace the main control board.

For answers to all your Whirlpool Duet ? Kenmore HE3 washer questions, buy the genuine service manual for this washer.

I just bought a house and it came with a Whirlpool Duet washer which worked the first three times I used it. Now after a cycle finishes, it fills back up with water. I have tried the drain and spin cycle which worked once, but now I can’t get it to do anything. Any suggestions?

I would put the machine into diagnostic mode to nail down what’s happening. The tech sheet for your washer explains how to do this. It’s cleverly hidden in your washer.
