Frigidaire Gallery Heavy Duty Front Loading Washer, FWT445GESI

We have the washer FWT445GESI, it has been jumping during the spin cycle. I have read there are springs or shock absorbers that can be replaced? Where can I find these items? Is there a "service pack" that is available for older washer like this one?

Thanks much! DG

    OK thanks. How do I know if the shocks are bad or not?

    I have a FWT449GFS1 Gallery fron loading washer. During the fast spin cycle it makes a very loud banging noise. I have the same question is there some way to test the shock absorbers to see it they are good or bad?

If you access the bottom panel you can see the shocks mounted from the base of the machine to the tub. you will need to take the top panel off and you can see the springs the are mounted about 1/2 way in at the top and connect to the to off the tub

Frigidaire Gallery washer won't produce final high spin


Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, FWT449GFS2 is not entering the final high spin cycle. It is possible that you could have a defective motor or timer. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend you having a professional come out to the home for the repair of your washer. -Matt
