    Hi, My washing machine is the Whirlpool AWO/D6728 and it makes the most horrendous noise when spinning. on the last cycle there was a rather unsettleing crunch and the spin stopped. there is no error message but im worried about using it again. Any suggestions?

    Its 18months old and we already had Whirlpool come out and replace the whole drum after 3 months due to damaged bearings and he explained to me that this model has the whole unit drum and bearings an all in one piece, would it be cheaper to replace the machine?
