Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF530ES, is having trouble with the drum rocking back and forth, from front to back. I suggest making sure that your washer is level. I would check from front to back, side to side, as well as from corner to corner. If you have leveled your appliance and are still noticing the drum rocking from front to back I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

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: the drum shakes violently and is very loud during spin cycle

There are 2 shock absorbers/springs attached to the drum. If one of them breaks it will cause a loud banging noise when you wash heavy loads. This is an easy fix. The part is about $22.00 and it is accessed throught the front bottom panel.

Washing machine shakes badly when spinning.


If not an unbalanced load, then it is an unbalanced drum. Turn the drum by hand when it is empty and it should spin smoothly (not freely because it is attached to the motor so there will be resistance). Can you hear a knocking or grinding? Push and pull the drum in and out, again any knocking? With your hands at 3 and 9 o'clock push with one hand while pulling with the other and rock the drum back and forth. Try it with hands at 12 and 6. Does it feel loose or makes a knocking?
Grinding is usually a sign if the bearings going or gone and knocking may indicate a broken drum holder (sometimes called a spider)
If everything sounds and feels okay then it may just be the machine is not level or secure. Rock the machine and if it wobbles check the feet and adjust until no more rocking. The feet do bend or adjust themselves over time, even making some kind of impression on the floor that makes it settle to a different level.

Knocking Whirlpool Duet


Is the waher sitting on a solid surface? Front loaders can not be put on wooden platforms unless they are very sturdy ad built well. Most knocking problems with front loaders are due to where they are installed..since you are familier with the front panel removal, remove it and then put the washer in the spin cycle. Then watch the unit spin and make sure there are no struts in the bottom that are broken or have seperated from the top half. If there is a broken strut you will need to replace it.

Ftf530es knocks during spin cycle


Good Afternoon Amy,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF530ES, knocks during the spin cycle. I also see that the drum moves from front to back and not up and down. I suggest making sure that your washer is level from front to back, side to side, and from corner to corner. If after leveling you washer, the drum is still moving from front to back, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why the drum is moving from front to back. Hope this is helpful.

My washer is rocking back and forth very violently during the spin cycle (medium) to where it knocks everything off when I put sometighing on top. I have called a repairman out 3 times and he says there's...


Check that the machine is level and that the leveling feet are not screwed out too far. If necessary, screw them back in and restart to level the machine. With a front loader it is more important to have the machine standing completely completely firm on all four its feet than to have it exactly 100% level. You must not be able to rock the machine by hand at all and the floor on which it is standing must be solid with no give in it at all.

Agitator does NOT spin along w/ drum during spin cycle


If this is the old style that uses a belt, it is not worth fixing. But the problem sounds like the wig-wam is not functioning properly. Most of the time it was a wire broken since it moves back and forth constantly.

Kenmore front loading HE3 makes knocking sounds during spin cycle


Ours started knocking several months ago and then progressed to a high pitched sound when in the spin cycle. I manually turned the drum and heard and felt a bearing roughness. I lifted the drum assembly and felt a fair amount of play, which I think the initial knocking noise came from. On the sears web site a new rear drum mount cost 293.00. Today we went and bought a LG model wm2455hw at Home depot, on sale until 2/20/08. I couldn't see paying to repair a machine that only lasted four years.
