Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Frigidaire fwtr647ghso I have a front loading frigidaire gallery washer that seemed to be out of balance. After I inspected it I found that the right side spring had come off because the grommet or hole where the spring connects to had broken. Is there a way that this plasric tub hole can be repaired by epoxy, glue or drilling a new hole?

level and balance is very important for all machines. make sure it is firmly seated on floor and shipping bolts pins and brackets are removed (some have brackets inside.) the machine should be able to evenly distribute the load. finally the shock absorbers could be bad. (seems rare on frigidaire)

Run the machine on a cycle with no load in it (no soap powder either)

If it makes the same noise when there are no clothes in it then the suspension legs have given way or the counterweight has come loose.
You will need someone who knows what they are doing to repair it

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description my first suspicion would be a worn tub bearing.

The other possibilities could have been the suspension shock absorbers or springs but you ruled that out.

If they are intact, good...but bad.

The tub bearing is as I alluded to likely worn, or the inner tub has broken apart.

You can check this by way of opening the door and grabbing the inner basket rim and moving up and down to feel for play...there should be zero play or zero tolerance in this bearing.

You can also remove the rear panel and visually inspect it as well. First, look for signs of leakage around the center bearing.

Second, grab the large pulley and try and move it back and forth or spin it with the belt off to listen for a grinding noise.

If it is indeed worn it will require practically the complete tub assembly ( rear wall with bearing and inner basket )...that is the least expensive and easiest fix at around $400 for the entire assembly.

example...

You can opt to change just the rear wall and bearing with the basket in separate pieces, but it comes in around $370 and still leaves you with pulling the old one apart to re-use the front shell.

Either way this is a fairly involved repair and even for an experienced tech like myself can take 60 - 90mins. I'd guess it would take one who's never done it all day.

Let me know what you find and I'll do what I can to assist you.

Good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Seems with your observation that the tub is out of shape and so it might be wobbling when it runs. So the only option is to change the tub with a new one but the cost must be confirmed to decide between a new tub or a new washer.
If you can get a salvaged tub it will be economical.

Hi

The unit comes apart completely and then the tubs are removed though it is not repairable and the only thing that you can do is replacing it. Also this depends on how old is your washer and on the model no. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The solution to this problem was embarassingly simple. I had the spin cycle set on "Fast" as it seemed to stabilize the washer. Just for something to try, I switched it back to "Normal" and voila - no more brown stains. Haven't got a clue why.

Spin Shake ...


yes the water is supposed to be there, thats called the balance ring, some machine use cement others water. you say the washer is unbalanced even when empty, is there an indicator or is the machine itself physically off balance. if there is an indicator the off balance swich might have gone bad or you might need to adjust the leveling legs.
