    Drum can be pushed creating a finger-width gap between drum and door-seal. Machine doesn't leak. Loud banging during spin. Black marks on clothes.

I think that I have a broken spider as well. Problem is I cannot get to it. I cannot get the large drum pulley in the back off of the square shaft. Any secrets or just keep pulling? Thanks.

It sounds like your spider is broken it is on the back of the drum that's in side the machine and if that's gone normally your barrings need to be replaced i would normal do the barrings for abaut 65 pound if you do need a spider you are looking abaut 30 pound so if you go down to your local second hand shop they might take the job on it ain't a walk in the park but it can be done i have done so many now im in ipswich if your near me i would do the job but it would seem every one is so far away but try your local second hand shop they should help you.

You might check the shocks that help to stabilize the drum during operaton. Mine started doing what you are talking about, right before it broke. I looked like I was on a mechnaical bull, trying to get it shut down.

Hi, I have a frigidaire front load washer, model FTF2140ESO, that is making a high pitched screeching noise when it enters into the final spin cycle. The noise ramps up in volume as the drum spins faster....


Some times screws can work their way out near the drum and rub against the drum causing the squeak. You might have to take off the back of the washer and see if there is anything loose contacting the drum.

Tub is loose


Hello Rob - Try rotating the drum manually when it is turned. If you notice that the drum is not balanced and cannot rotate freely, I would suggest contacting a professional so they can move forward accurately. Washer may possibly have a faulty bearing, unbalance drum or pulley issue.

Our washer will spin in the wash cycle, but not in spin cycle??


Check the door switch -- it it's loose or otherwise faulty, the washer will not spin. The door switch prevents the washer from spinning when the door is open -- if the swithch is malfuntioning, the wahser thinks the door is open. Door switch is on the circumference of the door opening.
