Question about Frigidaire MWS939Z Top Load Washer
I noticed my washer was leaking from the bottom, so I took the front panel off and pin-pointed the problem. It is coming from some kind of a seal I believe, but the leak is at the bottom of the tub where the spinning deal that spins the tub connects to the tub. So can I fix the problem with just some hand tools at home or do I need to call a profesional, or better yet is it fixable? And how?
Thank you! I just discovered the exact same problem with my 18 year old machine tonight. You saved me the cost of a service call from the plumber. I will go straight to the appliance store tomorrow and just buy a new one. Many thanks for saving me time and money.

Lost, I'm afraid that the tub seal/bearing assy. is an extremely complex repair and should be referred to a pro. Not only for the reason of complexity, but they'll also put a warranty on their work. Now there IS a bright side to this if the unit is less than 5 years old. The transmission and seals have a 5 year warranty! You won't need your original proof of purchase/receipt. You will need your full model number and serial number, though. Then go to this site, http://www.frigidaire.com/support/support.asp and contact them. If your unit is more than 5 years old? Well, I advise my customers to replace the washer. Simply because the cost of the repair will far outweigh the overall value of the machine. Think of it this way... if your washer were in perfect condition at its' current age and you decided to sell it. What would you be able to sell it for? $125.00 max? This number should be the limit you'd be willing to spend for repairs. If you decide to replace it, look at the Whirlpool built units. Even the used ones are better made than the Frigidaire units. Hope this helps.
