How do I fix the last few seconds of spin that vibrates off balanced and aloud noise.


All front-load washing machines have shock absorbers that are used to dampen the tub movement in the spin cycle. The shock absorbers or struts are attached to the base frame and to the outer tub and you will need to remove the front panel or the rear panel to access them. When shock absorbers weaken or become damaged, the machine will often make a loud banging sound during the spin cycle and if the symptom is not corrected, can lead to damage of other components. Inspect the shocks for signs of broken attachments, leaked fluids or a weakened dampening action and replace both shocks if worn. Remove power from the appliance before attempting this repair.

Some models of top-load washers use tub dampening straps to cushion the movement of the tub during the spin cycle. There are four straps attached to the top of the tub and to each corner of the cabinet

Also There are four suspension rods that suspend the tub and allow the tub to free float. If the suspension rods are noisy, there will be a squeaking noise during wash. You can fix this by putting bearing (lithium base) grease in the cup that each rod rests in. If it continues to squeal replace all four rods the cups come with the rods, replace them as well.

If your washer has a loud banging noise during spin the balance weight may be loose. This weight is to counter act the weight of the motor so you will find the weight directly behind the motor. Sometimes simply tightening the bolts will fix your issue but if the bolts are stripped out get some bolts slightly longer than the original bolt to allow you to put a locking nut on the bottom side of the mounting plate. If the weight is broken replace it.

Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

Unfortunately this unit has a bad tub bearing. The only way to fix it is replace the rear half of the tub because the bearing is not available separately.If it has worn into the front tub half as i suspect it did by you finding plastic in the tub the front half will need replacement as well. At that point it is not advisable to repair the unit because what you will spend to fix this will be as much as a new machine.By the way this is not uncommon over the years I spent working on these we would see three or four a week, the only ones we repaired though where the one's that had an extended warranty. I do feel for you though I have the exact model with the exact same problem and even though I can fix it myself and not have to pay any labor its still more than 500.00 in parts so I will just replace it

My washing machine door says that it is locked when the door is open how can I fix this?


Replace the door switch, but,..... if you order the switch, they may send the switch in a rather large and heavy (and somewhat expensive) box which also contains the lower counter balance for the front of the drum. The reason is that on some machines, the counter balance is shapped in such a way that on certain off balance loads, the counter balance is able to strike the door switch and break it. The new counter balance weight has been re-designed to prevent this from occuring.

Hi,

I'm not aware of any "balance things that go in the back" as you put it. if by chance you are refering to the transportation/shipping bolts, they need to be removed when the unit is in use and only neccessary for moving the washer.

Try this first **UNPLUG the unit from the wall** before calling a tech.

# 1...make sure you use "HE" detergent in any front load washer, including this one.

You can pull off the bottom service panel (2 screws) on the front of the washer and look to see the shock absorber's or the concrete counter weights aren't broken. while you're at it, pull off the top and inspect the suspension springs are intact to the cabinet/chassis.

start there

good luck

Balancing problem Frigidaire stackable front load washer/dryer


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

HE4t kenmore washer rubber drum gasket not attatched.


Removed the top and Front reinstalled the counter balance. the rubber gasket has a 1" tear in it which I patched with a rubber tire patch for now. Two of the locking nuts for the leveling of the machine were loose it went out of level causing the machine to rock and probably caused the counter balance to loosen up. My daughters come in from collage and over load it on weekends which adds to the machines demise. All have been warned.

Our clothes washer has a bad screeching sound & loud spin cycle


screeching sound generally form a bad pump, which if didnt pump out correct amoun tof water would probalby send off balance more. unplug unit, ddrain out asmuch wateras possible and tip unit back, you will see the pump in the front right corner, there is a small plastic reles tab, after releasing it the pump simply twists out counter clockwise, perhaps ther is something in the pump/sump. you will see tis when oyou remove the pump, simply reinstalls the same way
