Hi cgtires,
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if the tub is dropped, your support brackets on the tub may be broken. This repair is a major repair. You would need a new tub, and the labor takes several hours. I am affraid it may be time for a new washer. Feel free to call us if you need to ask questions. My name is Mike and I am the owner of a Appliance store.

Do not attempt to remove a drum unless you have been trained to do so

First thing to do is to dump the back drain hose into a big dish and drain off all of the standing water
in the machines sump.

Remove the power !!

Tip the machine towards the back and front to get as much water out of it as possible

Tip the machine back agains a wall or a bench with a cloth protecting both surfaces

Put a wooden block underneath the front edge of the machine in case it falls on you

Get a torch and look at the bottom of the drum , there will be a big hose connected to the base with a jubilee clip or spring clip

Remove the clip and pull the hose off , place a cloth on the floor as there may still be some water in the hose , if you are lucky the wire will be either in the hose or in the sump that the hose is fixed to.

If the hose is connected to the rear of the drum tip the machine as far back as possible allowing the wire to fall within reach of the hole

If you cant see it get a magnetic retriever or a piece of bent coat hanger and go fishing.


If the hose is fitted to the front of the drum reverse the machine and lay it on its front or as far forward as possible , that way the wire will fall towards the hole

When spinning at higher speeds, there was a sound that could only be the drum hitting or catching something. The drum has now dropped about an inch. I took it all apart yesterday & could see nothing...


It's hard to give much detail without a model number, but it sounds like you are working on a front load washer.
If the tub of a front load washer has dropped down and is rubbing on the outer tube as it spins around then I would suspect the rear drum bearings are bad.
You can remove the back access panel from your washer and see if there is a trail of grease and water residue running down from the center tub bearing.

My washer is off balance during the spin cycle it jumps, and moves around


With the washer empty, tilt it front a few inches and drop it back down. This will re-level the legs. If it still jumps around, replace the drum snubber, inside the front of the machine. It's a rubber pad that keeps the drum from moving around too much. Snubbers dry out with age.

Door locked with clothes and water trapped in side. Drum moving slowly and "clunking"


If you remove the drain hose from sink, drop it down low into a bucket,this will gravity drain and allow you to open the door to remove clothes, clunking could be object stuck in the drum or the pump even,at worst Drum bearing failure..Good luck

We went to tumble dry towels but when going back to the machine the drum was full of water and the towels soaking wet! Now we can't get rid of the water in the drum. We even tried to run a program to drain...


If you can, lay the drain outlet hose down to floor level, and let the water run into a bucket or similar.
Then check the filter, which should be located at the bottom front right of washer behind drop down flap.
Remove and clean by unscrewing it anti-clockwise.
Hope this helps.

Front load washer loud noise and drum loose but not dropped


Spider arms attached to stainless steel drum inside of tub have probably broken. This is a known problem with Frigidaire front loading washing machines. The stainless steel drum has a 25 year warranty but this does not include the spider arms. You cannot buy the spider arms separately, you have to buy the unit as one. The drum cost about $250.00 and probably about $300.00 in labor to install. You can do it yourself but it is pretty involved. Good Luck!
