20 Most Recent Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer - Page 4 Questions & Answers


It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

There is no reset for this unit. Do you get any lights illuminated on the control panel at all?The lights should flash in a sequence to determine a error code. Here is the complete service manual for your machine. Your model is considered the "good model" in this manual which cover two different models. Look at page 61 of the manual to determine the error code and post it back to me. If you don't get any lights on the machine at all and you know you have power to the unit, then the control unit will need to be replaced. Here is the link to the service manual. I will be waiting on your results.

Hope this helps..The bearing has been worn out already connecting the drum..The washer might be too old or has been used frequently loading what is more than sufficient.loading excess more than its capacity..

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying your post indicates it is a Frigidaire washer and want to know... "How do you get the plastic bolts out of the rocker arms so I can take the drum assembly out of my frigidaire front load washer ?


I'm not sure, but I think you might mean the shock absorbers attaching the tub to the base as shown here (but let me know if not)

1) Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the home breaker...safety first**
2) with a 1/2" deep socket, place it over top of the plastic bolt as shown.

3) now you can push it through with a screwdriver or pull it through form the other end...either way works for me, as shown.

If the water is pumping out fine you may need new shocks. But if it is slow pump the shaft on the pump is loose and causing the noise and possibly the spin issue. If it is loud when it does go into a spin (sounds like a jet engine) you have bad bearings. Big bucks to fix.

E20 = draining issue. The most common problem is a blockage at the drain pump.

This can be checked by a DIYer with general hand-tools.
1st. Unplug the washer! We don't want to get shocked.
2nd. There is a lower panel on this unit which can be removed by removing two screws at the bottom. Remove this panel to gain access to the drain pump area.
3rd. Find a big diameter black hose coming from the bottom of the wash tub and follow it until it gets to a plastic housing with an electric motor sticking out the side. (there will be a smaller diameter hose coming out of this plastic housing as well this is your drain hose)
4th. Remove hose clamp on large black hose and remove hose from pump (water will flow! be ready)
5th. Check hose and pump for blockages... One of the most common is under-wires from the wife's bras. Spin impeller of pump to insure that it moves freely.
6th. Put it back together in reverse order of taking it apart. Try unit out by starting a cycle without clothes. Then put it in a spin cycle to see if water drains.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Since the suspension is ok and it is level, check your drive motor and spin bearing. Usually, these are the trouble parts when loud noises are associated with the spinning cycle. Your drive motor controls the spinning. Since the noise is during spinning, that is probably where your problem lies.
