Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines
My Frigidayre front loading washer has begun making a very strange noise over the last week or so. This noise can he heard somewhat at low speed but it really gets very strong when spinning at high speed. I had a repair person come in to see what it was and he said that this was the main bearing at the back that was going. He continued by saying, it would cost me about $500 to get it repaired with parts and that this was a very difficult job to do. Can you tell me if this sounds right and if this is about what I should expect to pay to repait it? If so, is it worth repairing? The washer is only 6 years old. Thanks in advance for your help. Regards, Mario

he is right. the main bearring is done.
the part in canada costs 149.99
the issue is USUALLY caused by poor quality of water (well water)
or improper detergent.
a "HE" type detergent must be used in this machine. or this issue will come up afer about 5 yrs.
its not too bad of a job to do, takes 1 person about 1.5 hrs.. and does cost roughly 500 to fix.
It might be worth it to go and buy a newer frontload washer that this is not as much of an issue with.
but it is not worthless to fix, providing the proper detergent is used in it all the time.
