Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer
Noises in the final spin cycle. What's the problem?
If you want to take the time, I just replaced my drum bearings and seal for $62.00. No really any special tools needed. My model showed the bearings were not sold seperately and you had to buy the complete tub half, but when you take it apart, you can knock out the bearings and buy them online or at a bearing house. I have a seal part number also.
If I remember right the bearing part numbers are 6306-2RS and 6307-2RS (1 each) and the seal is a 40mmX80mmX10mm thick. Make sure you get the -2RS bearings because they are sealed. The ones that came out of mine are shielded bearings ( -Z ) and they will not resist moisture if the seal shaft seal fails.
Most AutoZones have seal and bearing drivers you can "borrow". They really help during installation so you don't deform the seal or damage the new bearings.
Any good bearing house should be able to macth on up or if you post back I can give you the exact number. I think most brands of front washer use the same bearings, but you may want to take yours apart before you buy.
Worst case the junk yard doesn't care if it comes in pieces or as one piece. Give it a try.
Not sure you will want to get this involved, but its not really too bad of a job.

If the noise is really loud in the final spin your bearing are starting to go out your washer needs to be rebuilt but it will be cheaper to go buy a new one
