Replace spider arm


Replacing the spider arm on this machine is one of the most difficult jobs. Just buying the part is extremely expensive because the arm and stainless tub are sold as one. When I tore down my machine to find out what was wrong I wound up salvaging parts and replacing the machine.

HOW TO REPLACE SPIDER ARMS ON KENMORE 970-C42062-00


if the spider gear is gone and it's very loud in the spin cycle buy a new washer,you have to take the whole washer apart,and then take separate the tub,with all the time and money it would be better to replace the washer,if you look inside at the back of the tub,you'll see like a peace sign,that's where the spider gear is.

One of the arms in the drum broke off, can this be replaced?


I assume that you have a front load washer since you mentioned arms. Many of the front load washers, the manufacturer forces you to buy the support arm and drum as a unit. To check, for your particular model, go to www.repairclinic.com to find out what you need to replace the spider arm/drum assembly. Hope this helps you.

I have a GE front-loading washer. There is a horrible thumping noise as the drum turns. It is not constant - when I turn it by hand it seems to "thump" on every rotation of the drum. I ran it...


The thumping sound is a sure sign that the spider arms or the support arms that hold the wash drum are broken. It is a very expensive repair since you need to buy a replacement wash drum and spider arm assembly which almost cost as much as new washer. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace the washer. Sorry.

The symptoms that you describe sound like the spider or support arms of your washer has failed. It the part that holds the wash drum true in the plastic tub. It's a rather difficult job to replace the spider since the washer has to be taken apart to get to the spider. Fortunately, LG does sell the spider, instead of making you buy a new spider and drum. You may need to also replace the plastic tub parts if they are too damaged to be reused. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace.

Loud banging noise looks like the drum is off set and it damaged the rubber in the front


If the inner wash drum is sagging when it is empty, it probally means that the support arms that hold the drum has failed. If you turn the drum by hand and if you hear any kind of banging noise or the drum wobbles more that a fraction of an inch, then the support or spider arms are broken.

You can't buy the spider arms seperately and must buy a drum and spider as one unit. The cost to repair would be in the hundereds. See the following link to judge for yourself if you want to fix it yourself or have it fixed. http://www.fixya.com/support/t4267953-spiderarm

Front load washer loud noise and drum loose but not dropped


Spider arms attached to stainless steel drum inside of tub have probably broken. This is a known problem with Frigidaire front loading washing machines. The stainless steel drum has a 25 year warranty but this does not include the spider arms. You cannot buy the spider arms separately, you have to buy the unit as one. The drum cost about $250.00 and probably about $300.00 in labor to install. You can do it yourself but it is pretty involved. Good Luck!

Frigidaire frontload washer


you dont need to buy the shaft, "spider".it has a lifetime warranty on the inner tub and should be replaced by frig. what you need is the entire tub as the shaft is not available seperately. if you cant get this under warranty then i would suggest buying a new unit as the outertub and bearings are what is worn causing your noise in spin. you may have to pay a warranty dealer to get the tub covered, but the whole job is very labor intensive and most people cant do it, even if you are good with tools. call frigidaire and see if they will cover the repairs first.

Just had the same problem 1 month ago. My Whirlpool Duet front load made that terrible noise. 2 of the 3 spider arms were cracked. I hade a new hole tub with the spider arm and the shaft , because it is 10 years limited waranty . But if it is not under waranty it costs about 270$ for that tub you can buy it from many appliance parts web sites on the net. Good luck, huge job to all remove that thing
