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

    It is unlikely that the drum has come loose from the backplate



    If the noise is a rumbling noise then the drum bearing may have failed



    Put your hand inside the machine and try to lift the inner drum upwards using the front edge of the drum



    If it lifts very easily for a 10mm or more before you meet heavier pressure then the bearings may be shot.



    Rotate the drum by hand is it smooth or does it sound rough again that signifies bearing problems.



    If all that checks out then you are back to suspension legs and counter weights which require a technician

I have the same situation. It is clearly in the "inner drum" as the outer drum shocks and springs are all fine (I opened the back to see).
Is there no fix it that I can do if it is inside the drum?

Frigidaire Gallery washer won't produce final high spin


Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, FWT449GFS2 is not entering the final high spin cycle. It is possible that you could have a defective motor or timer. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend you having a professional come out to the home for the repair of your washer. -Matt

If this is a front loading washer, the spider arm is broken at the back of the drum. Big bucks to repair this. You might as well buy a new machine.
