Question about Washing Machines
If this is a brand new washer, make sure the shipping materials are all removed, yellow shipping pins in back, styrofoam blocks etc. If this is an older machine, new problem, empty the machine, reach into the washer and give the basket a good hard spin, if you hear any type of grinding noise, or excessive rattling, your bearing and possibly the spin basket support are bad. I would also remove the top and front- bottom panel, and make sure the suspension springs and shocks are not broken before assuming the bearing, as this is a very lengthy and expensive job, (although the basket itself should have a lifetime warranty).

That's a great question, Roth!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is making a loud noise during the spin cycle. This could be an issue with your bel, motor, or tub. In order to find the cause of your noise you may need to disassemble your washer. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend contacting a technician to come out. This will help prevent any future issues or personal injuries. -Matt

Hello Deanna Lytle - Often when a unit does not spin, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.
