Question about Frigidaire GSTR1670A Front Load Washer
The machine was going thru the spin cycle when the machine just started making banging noises. When I emptied the machine, I tried rotating the drum by hand and that's when I noticed that it had dropped. Wha tcan I do
SOURCE: Drum Speed - Unstable
The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn. When these components are worn-they prevent the drum from spinning freely, and usually you hear a loud sound during the spin mode.

ouch!! can you "lift up " on t he inner drum with a movement of 1 inch or more??? if so sounds as if you needa rear bearing assy. dont know how old machine is, but genearlly if parts not covered its not a worth while repair. will run hundreds of dollars

When you take off the back panel, check to see if both shock absorbers are intact. We were having some problems with our (ATF6000E) Frigidaire front-loader recently too. I noticed that one of the shock absorbers was broken, for about $25 I got a replacement (two of them, I couldn't find just one). It took about 15 minutes to replace. No problems. With mine, though, I think because the drum was moving around, it dislodged some wires which made it stop filling up with water after a few seconds. I did a test and it said E5E. I would check to replace your shock absorbers before doing any more laundry so your machine will still work and not have other problems like mine.

your front drum support blocks have failed. remove the tub and, replace or, rebolt them in place so they hold the drum front in place.

Inspect the outer drum to see if one of your springs has popped off. You can also inspect the lower drum area to see if your vibration dampener has worn out or broken free. Also you may need to check your rear bearing just between the large pulley and the drom to make sure is hasn't separated from it's mount.
