Frigidare washer gives problem code FO3

I have a frigidiare gallery series front load washer model # GLTF207DSO and a couple of days ago it began making a noise like a bad bearing when it was pumping out the water. Now it will not pump out the waste water and it trys to do the spin cycle but will not get up to speed. When this happens it gives a problem code of FO3.

turn the tub on the inside if it feels ruff as it turns and makes a noise then most likely you have a bad rear bearing, if it is smooth in turning and no noise then turn to drain or spin possibly something stuck in drain pump. the drain pump will start up first if you hear the noise then the drain pump is accessed from the front lower cover, if its the rear bearing probably not worth fixing about 400.00 in parts and alot of work.

Be certain that nothing got under the rubber skirt, pull it back and look /feel under it .
inside the tub are the large wiper arms solid and not come loose.
open the top access panel (3 screws in top rear )
and open the bottom access Panel (3 screws in bottom front)
Dissconnect power .
Look at the springs and arms that attach to the tub are they secure.
is the large stone concreate slabs secure.
move all these items and push at them all secure?
you can run it while open but the bottom has a switch on front right that has to be closed.
look watch listen.

check out the drain pump if drain pump is blocked up water will not get away quick enough and stop machine from spinning
if that is clear
turn bowl by hand and if you get a runble noise then the main bearings are gone
that will need dismantle and replacement or new machine

SOURCE: Front loader will not spin

The problem is the door latch assembly. You can get it at your local parts supplier or oder it through repairclinic.com. Should cost $50-$55. My hubby is replacing mine now. Not an easy part to replace, but by all information I have gathered from the manufacturer and the parts department, this is a common problem and most likely the cause of the machine not spinning. It runs through all the rest of the cycles, but will not spin, even on spin only cycle. The good news... if you replace the door latch assembly once, the replacement part is much stronger than the original and shouldn't have to be replaced again.

Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig

sounds like the bearings need replaced, when replacing bearings you need to replace all of them to ensure proper function and life longevity.

Can you replace just the rear bearing on a frigidaire "gallery" series front loading washer without having to replace the rear drum half as well. if so where can i buy just the bearing?


Hi, Welcome to FixYa. I theory...yes it can be done. The problem lyes in 1) finding just the bearing & seal... and 2) the shaft of the inner stainless steel basket is likely going to be badly worn or "scored" as a result of the bearing failing. I always replace the entire assembly, but if the bearing and seal where available seperately it would still require the inner basket and a complete tear-down and just as much labour ( or more likely ) it is less expensive to do the complete assembly. I'll leave that with you, let me know if I can assist you further. Macmarkus :)

My washer makes a loud noise in the spin cycle. It's a Frigidaire Gallery Washer Model 417.39012890. Any idea how expensive the repair will be?


In my experience with 417 Frigidaires is that when there is a noise in the spin cycle as you describe the drum bearing is failing. This is a very expensive repair that that when I looked up labor and parts could exceed 600 smakeroos.
