Frigidaire front loading washer makes a clinking noise

My washer makes a noise when the tub agitates and spins. I took the top off and couldn't notice anything. When you turn it by hand you can hear a noise. It Washes and spins.

    when the washer goes into spin mode an alarmingly loud humming noise occurs, like an airplane. drum looks like it's spinning unevenly. although it is still washing and spinning the load, it makes me nervous to use it.

It sounds like your tub bearings are starting to go bad. Mine sounded like airplane taking off. Once the seal goes bad, water tends to migrate into the bearing cavity and flush the grease out of the bearings and then they wear quickly.
You have to completely remove the tub assembly to take it apart. Some say get a new washer, but I only paid $60 for the 2 bearings and a seal from a bearing house. They are even cheaper online.
You may as well try and fix it, worst case the junk yard doesn't care if it's in pieces when you bring it to them. I have no idea what an appliance repairman would charge to fix it.
If I remember right the seal is a 80mmx40mmx10mm metric seal. I found a rubber coated one from SKF I believe. The bearings should be 6306-2rs and 6307-2rs, but I would not buy anything till you have it apart. The bearings knock out easily.
INFO-Mine had -2z bearings installed which are only shielded bearings. The -2rs bearings hold up much better to water exposure in case the new seal leaks in the future.

If you want the exact seal part number, I can get it off my paperwork, Just write back.
I saw somewhere on an appliance blog that had step by step pictures of the procedure.

My Frigidaire FWT645RHSO front load washer sounds like a propeller airplane when it spins...HELP!


Robin, it sounds like the tub bearings may be going out on your machine. With the washer empty, reach inside at the top and gently lift the inner stainless steel tub. Does it move up and feel like there is some slop or play in the tub. If the bearings are tight, the inner tub will not move much at all independently of the complete outer tub assembly.
Have you noticed any grease on any clothes recently? Usually what happens is the water seal fails and the water eventually washes the grease out of the bearings and they fail.
Depending on your skill level, there are some good online blogs about tub bearing replacement. You may not want to deal with it. You have to make the call on that. Thats my 2 cents worth. Good luck.

It makes a loud noise when washing - it seems like the inner tub is sagging or something, when you open the door you can see the top rim of the tub. Is this fixable - and cost effective?

you need to remove the agitator take the cap off and remove the bolt from inside the agitator and then remove it look at the metal trunion in the bottom of the tub and see if there is a broken bolt holding the trunion to the shaft.there is a chance the transmission need to be replace if there is no broken bolt

Leaking from the bottom of the washer.


it sounds as if the main tub ring is bad you need to pull your agitator out and check the two blots that hold the tub to the shaft and make sure they have not become loose or broken causing the inner tub to drop on the shaft and tear the tub seal.

My frigidare glws1233a top load


Do you have this noise when operating an empty machine ? It could be cause an unbalanced load of clothes. Stop the machine, redistribute the clothes and re-start the machine. In case you still have this noise, the problem is with the transmition between the drive motor and the inner tub. Good luck !
