Older Frigidaire stacked top-load - loud ticking during agitation

It's the older Frigidaire stacking top loader model with the wig-wag transmission and is belt-driven washer. I actually can't find the exact model number, so the one in the here in the post may not be correct. The only model number I can find is FLC271GW1.

It makes a lout ticking noise during agitation and the motor seems overloaded when starting to spin. (I know this is the badly designed model where it spins and drains simultaneously)

I have recently replaced the belt with the correct type.

Any ideas?

    Figured it out on my own. Turns out the last "repair technician" didn't think the pile of shredded belt material laying in the bottom of the washer might have something to do with the tensioning pulley being fried. The pulley and bushing were not even connected and the hole in the pulley was so big, it would catch every once in a while and fry the belt. We asked him to check the machine over really well, but this part appears to have been not replaced or working properly for a long time.

    It was possible to use some epoxy putty to revive it temporarily until I can get a new part.

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

I would bet the manufacturer has an adapter for just this kind of problem. I did an installation on a stacked unit with a similar situation and there was an offset angle piece that attached the base of the dryer to the top of the washer. The front had a molded plastic piece to allow the dryer to rest on the front of the washer. Hope this helps

Hi,

Many late model washing machines use a direct-drive system to agitate and spin. They don't use belts or pressure wheels to transfer power and motion from the motor to the transmission. The motor is coupled directly to the transmission. If the motor is running and there is no agitation or spinning of the tub, the culprit is usually a plastic coupling between the motor and transmission or the transmission itself.

My Frigidaire front load stacked washer/dryer makes a horrible noise and won't spin. It works perfectly except for the spin cycle


you need to remove the agitator take the cap off and remove the bolt from inside the agitator and then remove it look at the metal trunion in the bottom of the tub and see if there is a broken bolt holding the trunion to the shaft.there is a chance the transmission need to be replace if there is no broken bolt

I need the model number off the machine to be sure!
But I thing you have the machine that has the WiG WAG that ingauges the transmission.

The wires for that wig wag move back and forth and can break inside the wire and cause it to conect and disconect the power to one of the solinoids that engages the transmision for for spin or the agitator.

It has two rods or bars that the wig wag solinoids move to make the transmision engage. it sounds like yours is engageing and disengageing. (( sorry for the spelling ))

This machine, if it is the one im thinking of is a tank and is not a easy machine to work on.

Some of the parts are still avalible.

Spinning basket while agitating


not that unique, whats happening is the transmission has a wig wag and shift cam bars that are not moving at the right time. you probably have an open coil on the wig wag and its normal for them to do this when a coil fails. just take the 5/16 screw out of the wig wag and lift it off the plungers, then replace it with a new one. all should work correctly after that.
