Support that holds the main basket has broken

Have a Frigidaire Gallery front loading washer and the first bracket broke after seven years and the second bracket has broken after four years. The bracket is made of a metal that is eaten away by the soap. It breaks on the high spead spin and makes a terable noise. How common is this problem. The first bracket was replaced under warrenty. However the labor to replace it is several hours. Do others have this problem?

Yes this is a common problem however there is a way to slow the process way down start by using only HE soap every major company makes it use approximately 2-3 tablespoons of HE soap once a month run an empty hot load with if you want some bleach or white vinegar. You can also get a cleaner called washer magic this is really good stuff. the hot load once a month will help to get rid of any extra soap that would be in the washer

Frigidaire gallery remove pedestals


There should be a bracket on the front and back of the pedestal with screws going into the bottom of the washer or dryer. Many times it is inset so you do not normally see it. Remove the screws in the bracket and it should come right off.
If you do not have brackets it might be screwed in from within the pedestal body in which case you would have to take out the drawer to get to the screws.

Need directions to remove broken drum vane in a Frigidaire Gallery Front loader washer (GLTF2940FS1).


Open the top of the machine (look behind the top for several screws to remove) and slide it back to release from the cabinet. This should give you access to the screws that hold the vane in place. Hope this helps!

Frigidaire Gallery Model FWT449GF Tub issue


level and balance is very important for all machines. make sure it is firmly seated on floor and shipping bolts pins and brackets are removed (some have brackets inside.) the machine should be able to evenly distribute the load. finally the shock absorbers could be bad. (seems rare on frigidaire)

Take off the lower panel. Inspect the shocks too see if they are damaged. If they are OK turn the wash basket by hand if the knock is heard then most likely you have a broken wash basket.

one of the welds on your inner stainless steal tub may have broke causing the drop of your tub.  The tub has a warranty on it but the labor to put it in is around 3hrs give or take any hour.
