Question about Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer
Drum moves from front to back not up & down
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.

This is a fault that resides within the motor control board. you will need to replace this failed module asap if possible. it has failed.

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

clogged filter will cause this error code. I have the same washer and the filter located inside the rubber boot attached to the pump was full of junk. there was enough room for water to get thru but not enough for full volume. clean it out and it should work. note : its a pain to get the boot back on so be ready and take it slow. this worked for me.

IT IS THE ISSUE WITH THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY, COST AROUND $50.00 WHICH IS FAR BETTER THAN $300.00, WHAT A SERVICE REPAIR PERSON WILL CHARGE YOU. YEA IT'S THE CRAZIEST THING IMAGINABLE,
THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY BEING THE CAUSE FOR IT TO NOT SPIN ALL THE WATER OUT. YOU CAN FIX IT YOURSELF, HAD TO TAKE IT ALL APART VERY CAREFULLY,
YOU CAN GET THE PART ONLINE OR GO TO NEAREST APPLIANCE PARTS STORE IN YOUR CITY. ASK FOR DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY. THEY WILL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT BECAUSE IT IS A VERY COMMON, I REPEAT VERY COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS BRAND OF WASHING MACHINE
Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance
Thanks for using Fixya

Testimonial: "I would have never guessed that one. You were correct. Thanks. "
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.
