Frigidaire Gallery washer inner drum off balance

I have a Frigidaire Gallery front load washer. It was recently moved between houses without the moving brackets being put in place. The inner drum now seems "off track", very loud spin cycle. The washer is level and the shock absorbers look fine. The washer does not shake but the inner drum vibrates and shakes like hell in spin mode. Are there rollers in between drums? Tracks? Bearings? Does a person have to remove the outer drum and split the two halves to get at the inner drum...man, I'm up to my neck in this thing.

SOURCE: Looking for replacement bearings for the outer tub

It sounds like you may have to replace the Outer Tub to replace the Outer Tub bearing .....ain't that just peachy.....good job Maytag design team.

If you are the original owner I would press Maytag hard to replace the Outer Tub based on the Outer tub Bearing failure. Their warranty states third thru tenth year Drive Motor, Outer Tub and Sealed Transmission. I’m sure you will need to have a certified Maytag repair service tech certify the failure and fix action required. Why should an Outer Tub bearing replacement cost you $430. Another poor design issue of this machine.

How do I level my frigdaire gallery front load washer


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

In order to properly balance your Frigidaire washer you would need to seek the help of a professional. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job and I would highly recommend reaching out to an expert technician to ensure the repair is correct to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree. -Matt

We recently moved our washer and it has progressively become really loud and shaky during the cycle. On the last load, it didn't drain and my laundry was soaking wet. What do I need to do to balance it?


Had the same problem with my HE5, the washer drum bearing is going bad. The problem with this, is that the bearing is pressed into the drum . This means that you will need a new inner and outer drum. How can you check??? Open the back panel and if you see brown residue or metal shavings , you know it is the axle bearing.

Front seal not supporting drum, drum flops violently, doesn,t leak. seal wont stay on drum.


it sounds like you may have tub bearing issues or your suspension springs or shocks may be missing or broken. The front seal is just there for sealing, thats its sole purpose.
Basically there is two parts, the inner stainless steel drum and the outer plastic tub housing. Reach inside and see if you can move the inner stainless drum up and down any significant amount? If so the bearings are most likely shot. If its pretty solid but the outer plastic tub moves, its most likely a suspension issue. You can take off the top to get a much better view of the components.

Can you replace just the rear bearing on a frigidaire "gallery" series front loading washer without having to replace the rear drum half as well. if so where can i buy just the bearing?


Hi, Welcome to FixYa. I theory...yes it can be done. The problem lyes in 1) finding just the bearing & seal... and 2) the shaft of the inner stainless steel basket is likely going to be badly worn or "scored" as a result of the bearing failing. I always replace the entire assembly, but if the bearing and seal where available seperately it would still require the inner basket and a complete tear-down and just as much labour ( or more likely ) it is less expensive to do the complete assembly. I'll leave that with you, let me know if I can assist you further. Macmarkus :)

I have a frigidaire gallery front load washer need help


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
