Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940E Gallery 3.5 Cu. Ft. King Size Front Loading Washer

1 Answer

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

My Frigidaire model FWT445GES1, was making noses like the drum was coming off. it nocking and is loss when you grab it. How do I fix this? thanks My Frigidaire Gallery FWT445GES1 Washer is not working properly. It makes a really loud knocking sound as if the belt is broken or something. I think my dryer Frigidaire Gallery 417.59012890 also needs to be serviced. Zippers and sweatshirt strings constantly get stuck in the drum as it spins and I've even had beautiful shirts get completely destroyed in the dryer by getting stuck between the spinning drum and the stationery part of the machine. The most important issue is my washer. I haven't been able to use it in over a month. Any help? Local to Worcester, MA

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.

It sounds like the spider arm supports in your washer has failed. The spider arms hold the stainless steel wash drum to the axle. You need to stop using the machine immediately since the wash drum is flopping around the plastic tub. It is an expensive fix. The replacement drum/spider can cost over $300 with shipping. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace. Sorry.

My Frigidaire frontloader is not spinning until dry. The drum appears to be banging against the interior, making a loud noise.


were the drum support brackets removed after purchase? you may need to open the front access panel and remove two brackets that support the drum during shipping. also at the rear are support screws that need to be removed

Loud banging noise during final high speed spin


I have the HE3T which is 6 yo. Last week it started making a loud banging noise in the spin cycle. I had a repairman come out. He said it is the drum bearings. He said that it is a problem with these machines and to call Sears. He said that the drum and bearing is one assembly and that Sears should cover it.

I called today and Sears todl me that I have to pay for a Sears technician to come out a determine if it is indeed the problem. If so, it will be covered under the lifetime warranty on the drum. I have to pay for the service call $75.00 and if it is the problem, I will be reimbursed. Cross my fingers!

My Frigidaire model FWT445GES1, was making noses like the drum was coming off. it nocking and is loss when you grab it. How do I fix this? thanks


I had the same problem (9 year old washer). It was a broken support spider for the drum. It had corroded nearly through, so it was ready to break. Had to buy an assembly that included the drum. Cost about $265. The tub assembly has to be removed and split to remove the drum assembly. I found out that the door boot has to be reinstalled with the tub assembly out and the counterweights in the front removed. My door boot was glued to the front panel. Had to cut it loose with a razor blade. If the problem should be the bearings, the repair procedure will be the same.
