Model 708 has a high speed bearing noise during rinse cycle Can bearings be replaced?


Hello,Here is how to tell if it is the rear bearing. Open the door, grab the inner drum and see if you can move it while not moving the outer tub. If you can, then the rear bearing is bad. Fridgidaire doesn't sell the rear bearing by itself, they sell the rear outer tub shell, also when this happens the shaft on the inner drum is worn and has to be replaced. I have seen this repair cost as much as 600 dollars USF to do this repair. What causes this is using too much or high sudsing detergent. The rear seal is a water seal, however suds will wick pass the seal like a light grade oil. Also water will not remove the grease from the rear bearings, however detergent is designed to do just that. You may try calling Fridgidaire and see if they will at least provide the parts at No Charge.

Thanks

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise


2 possible issues with your washer.
1 or both the support shocks or springs have broken
the drum would look off center even when empty
or rear bearring has worn out.
this is a very common problem with the fridgidaire washer... (this kenmore is a frigidaire model)
problem is caused by very hard water (well water) or improper use of detergent. this machine uses a High efficency type detergent, marked by "HE" on the detergent container

Fridgidaire GLET1041AS1


Unplug unit! Remove top screws and pull off top lid of dryer. Heater terminals should be at top right. Use ohm meter to check resistance. If ohms won't display, then your heater unit probably has an open circuit. For instance, my GLET1031 has a reading of 12.5 ohms.

From the sounds of things, you are talking about a front loading dryer. The agitators in the dryer can get coins stuck inside them. Remove the top and rotate the drum to reveal the screws which hold the agitators to the drum. Remove the screws and the agitators, empty the coins or other debris and reinstall.

The loud squeal sounds like the pad under the open side of the drum is worn out. There may also be a dry main bearing in the rear of the dryer. Lubricate the bearing and reinstall the drum. The squeal should disappear.

If this is not a dryer or a front loading washer, none of these suggestions will apply, Sorry
