Question about Frigidaire GLTR1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Frigidaire front loader

On the very last spin cycle (high speed), the machine makes an extreme banging sound. Is something broken? Can I fix it myself? I've tried rebalancing the load and the machine is perfectly balanced. Still, the banging carries on. Any other suggestions?

ACSEES TO THESE FRONT LOADERS MAKE IT HARD TO INSPECT COMPONETS. THERE MAY BE A CLUTCH ADJUSTMENT THAT IS NEEDED AND IS HARD TO ACCESS. POSSIBLY JUST A LOSE MOUNT. I WOULD CALL A "LICENSED FACTORY CERTIFIED REPAIR COMPANY" THAT WORKS ON YOUR "SPECIFIC MAKE AND MODEL". GOOD COMPANIES WILL HAVE A "FLAT-RATE DIAGNOSTIC FEE" TO FIND AND SOMETIMES IF IS A MINOR ADJUSTMENT, CHARGE LITTLE EXTRA OR NO CHARGE AT ALL OTHER THAN THE DIAGNOSTIC FEE. MAKE SURE TO GET A WRITTEN ESTIMATE WITH THE "TOTAL COST" OF REPAIR BEFORE "SIGNING ANYTHING" OR LETTING THEM "START REPAIRS" IF THEY DONT INCLUDE IT IN THAT "DIAGNOSTIC FEE". !!!

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

Loud clunking, banging sound during the spin/drain cycle.


the make , model and year are missing but if it is a top loader unit , it indicates that the tub suspension bar motion absorbers have broken and need replacing

I have a Fridgedaire Gallery front loader, was making a loud banging noise on spin cycle, now the whole drum has dropped! help!


The symptoms that you describe sounds like the spider arms that support the drum are broken. It is a very expensive repair. Get a few estimates, before deciding whether it is worth repairing or replacing. Sorry.

Front Loader Model #FWT449G5S00 banging on spin cycle. One bottem shock snapped replaced with new shock kit (twice) still bangs. At first I thought bang ( out of balance problem) was because of the broken...


The bearings on the drum may be going bad or the counter weight may be broken off or missing or heavy unbalanced loads. Reach inside and try lifting up on the interior drum. If it moves up and down or you feel any popping I would say the bearings are going bad. They usually make a lot more noise on the spin cycle also. Similar to an airplane taking off.
Hope this helps.

E59 Error on Frigidaire front loader - won't spin


I finally solved this same problem on mine error code E59 and the main symptom of the drum never spinning even right at the beginning of the load cycle. I did Test 12 based on the following link: (MAKE SURE THE POWER CORD IS UNPLUGGED TO THE MACHINE)http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134542000.pdf. I found that the motor was fine which meant the problem was with the speed control board. On my speed control board there are 3 locations that connectors plug into it. Make sure these are all firmly connected. One of the three is a very weak press fit connection clamping over the edge of the circuit board. This had wiggled loose on my machine from all the dancing across the concrete floor in the basement this machine does. I pressed this connection in firmly, put everything back together and it started working like new!

Good luck.

Frigidaire front loader makes banging noises in spin cycle


hi there.......if this problem has just recently appeared...its quite possible that 1 of the tub suspension springs has broken resulting in the tub lying at an angle and causing this unbalance....you can check this by tilting the machine and looking at the tub susension points

Loud banging noise during final high speed spin


I have the HE3T which is 6 yo. Last week it started making a loud banging noise in the spin cycle. I had a repairman come out. He said it is the drum bearings. He said that it is a problem with these machines and to call Sears. He said that the drum and bearing is one assembly and that Sears should cover it.

I called today and Sears todl me that I have to pay for a Sears technician to come out a determine if it is indeed the problem. If so, it will be covered under the lifetime warranty on the drum. I have to pay for the service call $75.00 and if it is the problem, I will be reimbursed. Cross my fingers!

Clunking during spin


see if the shocks are not broken. if you spin the wash basket by hand and hear a grinding noise, then your bearing would most likely be bad
