    Help! Some loads I was in the washer come out with lots of brown smears on it that look like mud. This started all of the sudden and only 3 loads out of the last 10 did this.

Frigidaire gallery front load washer dripping sound


With any front load machine manufacturers suggest to leave the door open after cycles to help evaporate the water - this is even done in top loading machines nowadays. Also clean the unit with bleach water and rinse in high temp water cycles.

The drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle


There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

I have an 11.5 year old Frigidaire Gallery with an increasing leak present at the end of each load. A drip pan has been enough to catch it so far, but am concerned I'm seeing more and more water. Expected...


could have a leaking drain hose, pump. If your handy and dont want to spend several hundred dollars for a new washer and the washer is working fine veside the leak, I would just fix the leak.

Water is leaking from under the washer.


Yes you are correct, there is a seal there. The part is not expensive, but the labor will be. This is a long job.

Washer Shaking Violently on Spin Cycle


Yes, there is...The legs on the washer are adjustable, the rear legs are often ( not always ) self adjusting, make sure the legs are not stuck and that they can move freely. But the front legs can screw in and out to move the washer depending on the floor the washer is sitting on. Make sure the washer is as low to the floor as possible. When the legs are screwed out too far the washer becomes wobbly. Often on the metal style legs there are lock nuts that can be tightened to secure the legs so they don't move on you. washers where really meant to sit on a cement floor, if your washer is on a wooden floor look carefully at the strength of the floor. If the floor is moving up and down when the washer is running, the floor may not be strong enough to support the washers weight. Most main floor laundry rooms floors are nailed down, the sub-floor is more secure if the sub-floor has been screwed down. Sometimes extra support may have to be added under the flooring to add some strength for leaking issues Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked?
Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.

Washer shakes, as if out of balance, after all water is drained


Biggest problem i get on the front load machines are spinning and draining problems. First thing to check is make sure your soap is not foaming up. If you see alot of suds in the machine when it is washing switch brands h.e. soap is best but he liquid tide has been a big problem with suds. Next make sure you put equal size items don't mix heavy and light items in machine as this may have off balance issues! Next check the coin and pintrap if it has one some machines have filters on the front of the machine that need cleaning.After these have been checked see if the machine has any unusual noises or odors when used rubber burning odor or electrical odor when in use may indicate a overloading or internal problem with the machine.
