Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines

1 Answer

Noisy Frigidaire front load washing machine.

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

Comming from a Sears Tech,,, ME
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.

Samsung front load washer, jerks and makes noise when it first starts spinningthen it smooths out, and works fine.


on many machines that is normal, the shaking continues until the load is distributed relative evenly around the spinning drum. It is also possible it is the main bearing but I am not sure. The noise I am talking about would have been there since new. These links may help. Washer has noise during spin cycle Whirlpool Maytag Sears GHW9100LW1 Washer is Making Loud Noise

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

Greasy mark on cloth and noise


The rear bearing is most likely the cause, High efficiency detergent is a must with front loaders. Most likely not worth repairing unless you can do it yourself. Having it done would most likely run at least 350.00 - 450.00. Call a local servicer, A&E (aka sears) would charge 1,000.00.

Frigidaire Front Load Door Lock Broken and Noisy FWT449GF


Its looks like a lid switch issue. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Good luck!
