Question about Frigidaire GSTF1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Something rolling inside the Drum

Dear FixYa expert:

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Front loading clothes washer that I am repairing. At first I thought it would be an easy repair as I noticed one of the shocks that support the drum was cleanly broken. As I started to work on installing the new strut, I noticed a large piece of plastic sitting near the back of the washer. I removed the back and found a hole in the plastic "outer" drum that fit my discovered piece perfectly. TO check things out, I tried to rotate the drum manually and I can hear something rotating inside the drum between the steel drum and the plastic out drum. As I listened to the "rattle" it seemed to be coming from the center of the plastic drum. So here is my theory. The main bearings siezed in the middle of the spin cycle, caused the shock to break off (plastic part) and the steel drum hit the plastic outer drum and broke off a piece of it. What do you think? Now here are my questions.
#1) Where can I get an exploded view of this washer, Model FWTR647GHSO or "0' (zero, I can't tell which).
#2) How can I get in there to get that broken piece (or bearings) out from between the two drums?
#3) Do I have to take the entire drum out of the machine to do it?
#4) Regarding replacing the bearings (if that is the problem), how do you get the pulley off the back of the outer plastic drum in order to fix it?

What ever suggestions you might have would be appreciated.

The rear half of the outer tub, with bearing is part # 131525500 and it looks like the back "spider" shaft is not available as a separate part from the inner drum. The "spider" shaft is most likely worn or damaged and in need of replacement also.
131618500
Then, there's that strut
134564200
Now, two pain in the back side hours of your labor and you've got your washer back, at more than what a new one would cost! Junk it and get a new larger capacity front loader.
Please don't rate this, as anything but the top rating will lower my score. I'm just giving you my honest opinion, that your machine is not economical to repair. I've owned a LG front loader for over 6 years and think they are the best, but there are other good front loaders out there also.

Washer is putting holes in clothes


Check the inside of the drum when the machine is empty by feeling the entire surface with your hand. Take care as you are looking for something that's got stuck in one of the holes in the drum and is protruding into the drum, and this can often be a wire from an underwired bra!

If you find anything it should be removed by pulling it out carefull with a pair of pliers.

FWT445GES1 Washer makes loud banging noises like it's going to explode.


Washer- you need a complete tub and bearring kit. this is a common problem for people who have well water. (also just happens) the rear yoke has become corroded and broken. its a costly repair.

dryer - you would need a new front slider seal. very simple to install.

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

Frigidaire Gallery front load washer Model # GL2F1240ASO


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.
