Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

When in spin cycle machine makes a very loud whining noise


Most common cause for your whining noise is because the seals have failed/worn and allowed water into the bearings..Rusty ball bearings are not smooth...Hence the noise.....Probably needs bearing/seal and probably shaft replacement....Big job..Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

Front load washer makes whining noise on spin cycle


Check to make sure that your machine is still level using a regular carpenters level. If it is not, You may be able to level it by screwing on the legs until it is level. But carefully and not too much at once.
