Tub bearing is making grining noise

yes when the washer sounds like an airplane taking off during the spin cycle, it is a worn rear bearing.
it does happen from the wrong type of soap being used. the suds from regular soap will destroy the seal and allow water to get into the rear bearings causing the bearing to fail and become noisy.
HE type soaps have been recommended by the manufacturer for about 6-7 years now and you MUST use them to prevent this from happening. it can also happen with HE is you just use too much.
now the good news... the inner tub has a lifetime warranty but the outertub, comes with seals and bearings, may only have a 5 year part only warranty.
what you can do is to call frigidaire at the 800# and ask if they can check the warranty for you. a 3 year old and a 5 year old unit might be covered by a part warranty. if so then the labor to replace the tubs will be about 200-300 bucks. i know its a pricey repair but is certainly cheaper then buying a new washer.
by the way, all front load washers will do this if you use the wrong soap.

Frigidaire Front Loader Won't Drain

if your washer is digital or with elecronic control board check the the motor control board located at the bottom difiniely you have to call a tech to confirm that. other model like wd5595 and wd 8095 has the same problem and it is the motor control unit that always fails.
