Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
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!

When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...
