Question about Frigidaire GLTR1670A Front Load Washer
So I just bought a 3.5cu ft frontload washer and after leveling it and all that jazz it spins out of whack( ie walks on the floor and an err code) develops. I didnt take out the shipping plugs as I really didnt think this was necessary as far as operation is concerned, is it?
100 percent absolutely needed. this unit has alot of power and energy when it goes into the final spin. it will get up to about 1,000 rpms and that needs to be contained by the shocks and suspension.
without removing the shipping bolts this unit wont be able to be used.
but the good thing is it will only move about 5 feet as then it will pull the plug out of the wall!! LOL
take out the bolts and plugs and then it should work well for you.

Tips for a great answer:
I appreciate your post, Rachel Kovach!
From my understanding your Frigidaire frontload washer is not spinning the final spinning and the clothes are still wet. If you washer is overloaded it will not spin properly to release the water out of the clothes. Also, a small load will cause your washer to not spin properly. You should additionally check the drain hose to make sure it not kinked or twisted that could cause your improper draining. If all that checks properly it could be an issue with your drain pump, motor, and control panel. I would suggest consulting with a technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
