Main Drum Bearing

I have a frigidaire Gallery washing machine which develpoed a loud clunking when spining and hardly spins at all now. I had a tech come by who didnt look at it but spun the drum and said the main drum bearing was gone and was too costly to repair. Can anyone advise me on the steps to replacing the main bearing? Is this something I could take on myself? I live in Bermuda so getting a new washing machine is such a pain... Help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Chris

Just tore ours apart for loud noise.Found the inner spin basket was broken at two of the three webs that hold it together,that allowed it to move foward and almost completele ware thru the front outer shell.The inner spin has a lifetime warrenty.The front outer skell cost about $170.00,but you may as well put the rear outer shell in because it has the bearings and cost about $224.00 and the seal between them is about $24.00.They make the complete assy inner & outer tub assy. #1063854 for $599.00.A new washer cost about $800.00.We are checking to see if Frigidair will cover the whole thing because the part under warrenty caused damage to other parts when it broke.

Frigidaire Gallery Series GLEH1642FS loud noise on final spin


It sounds like something has come loose or some item was placed in the unit accidentally and it got lodged in the drum. You will need to start by taking the front cover off and looking around the drum.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It sounds like it is your spin bearings. It would explain the grease and the noise also. The spin bearings have to do with the spinning of the washer. Usually, if there are loud noises associated with the washer, it is either the motor drive or the spin bearing.

My washer makes a loud noise in the spin cycle. It's a Frigidaire Gallery Washer Model 417.39012890. Any idea how expensive the repair will be?


In my experience with 417 Frigidaires is that when there is a noise in the spin cycle as you describe the drum bearing is failing. This is a very expensive repair that that when I looked up labor and parts could exceed 600 smakeroos.

Loud clunking sound during the spin cycle, washer is balanced and on 2nd floor


If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise islouder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, probably drum bearing spider had broken.

On a front load the drum bearing is located at the back of the drum.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.
