Question about Frigidaire GLTR1670A Front Load Washer
During the final spin the machine made a very loud noise and jerked violently. Now you can hear the motor running but it will not spin. The drum can be turned freely by hand. Is this a catastrophic failure?
1. If the machine will not rotate by itself, but the motor is running, then it is definitely the belt. Open the back panel with the cord unplugged. It is easy to replace the belt.
2. There is a drain pump accessible from the front bottom panel (2 screws). This pump operates while it is draining. Make sure both the main motor and this pump are operational. If the main motor does not move, then replace the motor.

Get the plug off the wall, open up behind & check what it is. Maybe the belt is off...........Only severe cyclones are catastrophic........

Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided you are hearing a loud screeching noise during the spin cycle on your Electrolux washer. You will hear a certain amount of motor whine during the spin cycle this is a normal operation of your appliance. -Matt
