Question about Frigidaire GLWS1349A Top Load Washer

Open Question

Frigidaire model GLWS1349AS1 loud whine at end of spin cycle. Ran it while empty and it still happened after a while. Tried to take it apart to unhook the belt to narrow down if it is motor or not but it has metal clips holding panels together and I did not want to break them. Should I just take bottom off or will I still need to get at the sides. Is there an easy way to get them off?

SOURCE: frigidaire washer model #fwt425rhso

the tub is mounted on shocks if you look in side the tub near where the tub seem is take the screws out of the vane and slide it foward and take it out look in the hole for foreign objects in between the inner and outer tub then follow this procedure to check the drain pump if you have a shop vac this is time to vacuum the water of the tub and all the way down the drain hole for the next stage usally i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water out of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case. Now remove the two screws on the front lower panel and pull the panel
in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take a piece of water hose with one end cut off and run it down the pump to drain end of the drain and reassemble the unit

SOURCE: Frigidaire Washing Machine Model # GLTF1670AS0 Makes very loud

if the noise is really loud in the final spin your bearing are starting to go out your washer needs to be rebuilt but it will be cheaper to go buy a new one

SOURCE: My model #gltr1670aso makes loud noises during spin cycle

Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig

SOURCE: My washer makes a loud noise in the spin cycle.

In my experience with 417 Frigidaires is that when there is a noise in the spin cycle as you describe the drum bearing is failing. This is a very expensive repair that that when I looked up labor and parts could exceed 600 smakeroos.

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.

Hi
Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually...
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested.
Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have a 7 year old Frigidaire washer (Model #GLWS1349AS1) and the water drains really slow and the spin starts before all the water is drained and then the washer leaks as water is still in it during spin...


you have a restriction in the drain somewhere or there is something inside the pump housing,chk every line from the tub to pump to drain pipe and hoses for blocks or kinks

SPIN CYCLE WON'T DRAIN WATER FROM TUB IT RUNS ONTO MY FLOOR


Sounds like you have a bad water pump. Remove the hose going into the water pump and coming out of the pump and the pump should pull directly off the shaft check to make sure it spins freely.

Front load washer makes whining noise on spin cycle


Check to make sure that your machine is still level using a regular carpenters level. If it is not, You may be able to level it by screwing on the legs until it is level. But carefully and not too much at once.
