Question about Washing Machines
My Frigidaire Washer GLTF1670AS was purchased on July 14, 2002. IIt lasted a little over 6 years. It developed a squeal so we bought a new belt. When we went to install the new belt, we found the machine was leaking because the plastic mounting bolts had broken and there was a hole in the back of the machine in the approximate size of a fist. This machine was never abused - it was used for the needs of a husband and wife - maybe four loads a week. We understand there have been many problems with the front loading Frigidaire washers. One doesn't expect a machine with such limited use to have to be trashed but it is apparent it can't be fixed. Guess your design engineers goofed on this model.
You can fix it buthte cost would outwieghthe cost of new machine,all front loaders not exclusulve frigidaire have simillar issues, if no the tub cracking the rear bearing goes bad

Good Morning Steve Wilkes, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is squealing and making a loud noise while it is spinning. I understand that you would like to know how to locate if the bearing is bad or the belt. Unfortunately there are no instructions to provide you to locate which part could be faulty. Since it could be either one of these issues I would recommend contacting a professional technician to have a diagnosis to be completed this will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt
