It looks like the bearings on the back of the drum are worn out. You will need to remove the drum to get to it. Removing the drum and remove the bearings, get new one then replace it.

Frigidaire Gallery Series GLEH1642FS loud noise on final spin


It sounds like something has come loose or some item was placed in the unit accidentally and it got lodged in the drum. You will need to start by taking the front cover off and looking around the drum.

I have a Fridgedaire Gallery front loader, was making a loud banging noise on spin cycle, now the whole drum has dropped! help!


The symptoms that you describe sounds like the spider arms that support the drum are broken. It is a very expensive repair. Get a few estimates, before deciding whether it is worth repairing or replacing. Sorry.

My dryer is making a very loud screetching noise when the dryer is running. it is a full washer and dryer up and down from one another. electric


There are guide wheels and a tensioner in the back that hold the drum steady and the belt tight. The bearings on these can dry out and start to make some very irritaing noises. Pull the unit out and take the back off. Turn the drum slowly by hand and you will probably be able to tell what is makeing the noise. Some light motor oil or sewing machine oil should fix your problem. While your there it would not hurt to get a few drops of oil on all of the rollers and the tensioner pulley.

FWT445GES1 Washer makes loud banging noises like it's going to explode.


Washer- you need a complete tub and bearring kit. this is a common problem for people who have well water. (also just happens) the rear yoke has become corroded and broken. its a costly repair.

dryer - you would need a new front slider seal. very simple to install.

Burn marks on clothing


The front felt drum seal may be bad. It is attached to the front panel, around the door.
Check and or replace the rear drum support it has worn down the ball and cup support. It will soon begin making a grinding/squealing noise.
When it wears and drops down the gap is greater at the front around the felt seal. Laundry gets caught in the gap and scorches.

Fridgidaire dryer


In dryers, the small clothes can get caught in one of the drum seals and make a scrapping noise, ( remove power, grab a flash light and have a peek inside through the door opening ) or the cloth can actually pass through one of the heating duct holes at the back of the drum and touch something electrical like the heating element, thermostats and so the noise comming.
