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.

My front load washer will not spin on the final spin cycle. Washer spins in wash and rinse cycle spin. Cloths are still soaking wet.


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

The machine is level but the drum spins as if it were not. loud and the machine moves forward


These new front load machines are much heavier and spin much faster than the top load machines. If you have old wood floors in your home or you live in a mobile home, the machine may tend to "walk" or vibrate on the floor. You can try putting something under the machine to help prevent it from walking as it is spinning.

Washer is 5 years old and making alot of noise during final spin


these frontloads are notorouis for having their rear bearing go out... if machine is all level and service told u the tub is bad then i would probably agree.... most of the newer frontloads had a 5yr parts warranty on the tub.....thet rear bearing is actually built in to the rear outer tub so replacing requires allot of labor as one must teardown unit and remove both drums and seperate and install new parts.... i would check your warranty for ur specific options,,, hope this helps

Washer spins out of balance, Heavy or lite loads. Washer also walks around. Mostly on final spin.


There is a tub damper under the top of the washer which is probably out of place or damaged. It is a v-shaped rod with a cup on the end.

Frigidaire Gallery Series Frontloader no final spin


I had the same problem. Here's a link that might help:

I removed the hoses and pump and found the filter in the hose leading from the washer was clogged with a shoelace, $2.35 in loose change and a few GI Joe issued M4's. :-) Once I pulled that filter out and cleaned the **** the washer runs like a champ.
