Question about Frigidaire FTF530ES

1 Answer

Loud spin cycle

Over the past few weeks the spin cycle has gotten loud with every load. It is not a knocking noise, but a constant "whir" type of sound that is now quite loud. It appears to work fine, just much louder than the first several years that we had it. When it is empty and spin it by hand you can hear the sound even though it does not appear to be moving side to side at all and seems to spin freely. The wash machine is in the basement so I can live with the noise if this is not something critical that needs repair. I assume it is some bearing that is going bad. I do not smell any odors, no rubber chucks to indicate a bad belt, etc, just a very loud constant sound during the spin cycles. All the other cycles appear to work fine and are no louder then normal.

    How do I check the water pump to see if that is the noise? Would the water pump make noise if I spin the drum by hand when the washer is not running?

My whirlpool duet washer hammers very loud when it spins. The outside of the machine doesn't seem to vibrate much but it is very loud.


That is a common occurrence with dryers such as this one. Even though it sounds bad, it is harmless. If it really bothers, you can re-balance the load and it should reduce the vibration.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

Loud noises during spin cycles


Hello, If the noise is a squealing or grinding sound, you are likely looking at a bad seal and bearing.
If the noise is a knocking sound, it's more likely a suspension or out of balance condition.
Thanks

Loud noise while agitating in wash cycle


If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.
