Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Makes clunking sounds & throws belt off pulley.

Throws belt off pulley & makes clunking sounds.  Works fine (albeit with the loud clunking noise) until it throws the belt, so all the electronics are OK.  I've replaced the belt, but the same problem occurs.  Also, the drum seems to be difficult to spin by hand.  Drum bearings? Shocks?  Is this a car or a washer??  THANKS.

    Thanks!  After some more investigation, it is clearly the bearings.  Bad news, but good to know what's what.

    Replaced clutch about 2 months ago. Has worked fine until now. Drum does not spin freely by hand, spins slowly under power and makes a rhythmic clunking noise.

I think you have the answer. I suspect it will be the bearings that have seized up. Or possibly the spyder / drum axle broken

Riding mower makes noise and has a vibration when I engage mower blades and throws the belt off


Normally, this is caused by a bad / or worn out bearing in the blade spindle. The blade is attached to a shaft that goes thru the spindle housing, where the bearings are located, and then goes to the pulley that is driven by the blade drive belt. good luck

My 1997 chrysler t &c is making a loud clunking noise, steers hard and overheats. Mechanic says it's tension pully. does that sound right


It sounds like it to me. Your van has a serpentine belt which is pulled tightly by the tensioner pulley, hint the name "tension" pulley. If this is defective you will experience the problems/symptoms you have listed, hard steering, over heating, and the clunking,which must be the defective tension pulley. All those problems should resolve immediately after it is replaced. Don't forget to replace the serpentine belt too, for preventative measures. How this helps...

Loud in spin cycle/throws oil


If the pulley wobbles, it sounds like a bad bearing, and that could account for the oil/grease. One more thing you might check, mine acted bad in the spin cycle, but mine was the leveling spring at the bottom of the drum. The way to tell from the top is if the drum tends to lean forward instead of being centered when sitting. Good luck.

I put on a new fan belt and it makes a squeaking noise after just a few months....why is this......the engine is a 4.3 L G20 chevy van 1994 without AC


Could be a pulley making the noise. Could be your choice of belts. I have had good luck with the Goodyear Gator Back belts. And I don't care if someone says their store brand is made by Goodyear. They may be what Goodyear throws away and the store goes dumpster diving for them.

Its harder to do on a van but what you can try if you don't have an automotive stethescope is hold a piece of hose to your ear and the other end around the pulleys to help you narrow down where the noise comes from..

Kenmore series 80 dryer. everything works fine so far, just makes like a rumble noise as it is drying. driving me crazy. any solutions?


THE NOISE COULD BE FROM MANY THINGS. IS THE DRYER SITTING ON THE FLOOR SECURELY? HAVE YOU CHECK THE BAFFLE INSIDE THE DRUM? IS THE NOISE LIKE A CLUNKING NOISE AS THE DRUM TURNS? ALSO THE BELT MIGHT BE OFF ALIGN FROM THE MOTOR PULLEY, EVENTUALLY IT WILL TEAR OFF THE BELT.

BOYNISMO@YAHOO.COM OR 714-334-1998. I CAN WALK YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS IF NEEDED.

The dryer makes a loud noise when running. It still works and drys. Its a loud screeching sound. Do you think the belt needs to be replaced?


Could be the one of the 4 drum rollers, Idler pulley or belt.
I usually replace them all at once for long term reliability.

1993 mercury topaz GS Engine noise


Another guess would be the water pump going bad. That noise can be loud when it gets pretty bad and makes like a metal on metal grinding noise

Oki C9500 makes VERY LOUD clunking noises but prints fine...


The sound is most probably from one (or more) of the drum units. You can check by taking them out and trying to run the visible gears by hand. If you have spare drums, change them one at a time until you find the defective one.
