Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Wash tub seems loose and is really loud

Have Frigidaire front loading GLTR1670AS0

Started making noise, then on next load got really crazy load - banging. Wife stopped load and informed me. Let the fun begin!!:)

First thing I notices in the stainless wash tub is really loose. Can't say I examined it before, but I think it was pretty stable. Appears that whatever holds it in place broke..but I really have no clue. Just know I can put my hand in there and move it all over the place.

Took front bottom and back off washer and to my dismay realized that the tub itself is protected like Fort Knox. Getting in there will be ugly. Guru's do you know what happened here? Thanks!!!

We just had that same problem last week. My husband took off the back of the washer and at the bottom you will see a shock absorber on each side. One side of ours was broken. $35.00 later for the parts (you get two in a package) and the tub is sturdy once again. Husband said it was fairly easy to do. Hope this helps!

LG Front Load WM1815cs Makes loud noise when spinning. Inner tub is loose and seems to bounce making loud noise. Is this more than a bearing problem?


The outer tub and the bearing will need replacing as by replacing only the bearing will be a short lived repair as it will go the same way.

Kenmore Elite Oasis HT makes loud noises during spin cycle.


The tub may be unbalanced and wobbling. This may be due to washing heavy items such as rugs, towels, etc. If it is noisy with regular laundry loads, the mechanism that supports the tub may be loose or broken.

It makes a loud noise when washing - it seems like the inner tub is sagging or something, when you open the door you can see the top rim of the tub. Is this fixable - and cost effective?

you need to remove the agitator and check the bolts that hold the trunion to the shaft and make sure they are not broken.if one is just replace them make sure that the bracket is in the flat key way on the tub hope fully the tub seal is still good.

Front Loading Washer LOUD NOISE


IF IT ROARS LIKE A JET PLANE TAKING OFF, THE SPIN BEARING IS FAILING. PROBABLY, THE REAR SEAL HAS FAILED ALLOWING WATER TO GET INTO THE BEARING.
THE BEARING HAS LOST ITS LUBRICATION SO IT IS GETTING DRY. IT WILL CONTINUE TO GET LOUDER AND LOUDER THE LONGER REPAIRS ARE PUT OFF.
THE ENTIRE BACK HALF OF THE OUTER TUB WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. THE BEARING IS PART OF THAT ASSEMBLY. CAN BE A COSTLY REPAIR.
