Something to check would be the two aluminum bolts in the clamp block that holds the basket assembly to the transmission crank.
If one breaks, one side of the basket can drop enough to rub on the plastic water tub.
Its an easy test, they can be examined by simply removing the agitator.
If indeed one is broken, I suggest replacing both of them with brass bolts. (two brass bolts from the hardware will be cheaper for you than one OEM aluminum bolt)

Grinding noise before spin cycle


Good Morning John,

I see that you are hearing a grinding noise before the spin cycle in your Frigidaire washer, model# GLET1031CS0. A certain amount of "grinding" or gear sounds are normal in a heavy-duty washer. If you notice that the grinding sound appears to be getting louder, I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Our washer is making a grinding noise when the washer drains and when the tub spins any ideas what it might be. Washer seems to work fine just making that noise during a drain and spin cycle.


This sounds like you may have something caught in the drain pump. One of the most common items to get stuck in there is a woman's bra wire. Check it out.

When spinning it seems the washer is getting louder and louder during the spin cycle. It is a very steady noise no grinding to it. Maybe a bearing?


make sure heavy items are evenly distributed in the barrel. if to loud , stop the machin by openning the lid and make sure the weight is evenly distributed. never just throw laundry in , place it so wieght is evenly placed around.

Washer makes loud, thumping noises during spin cycle.


support bracket that supports the tub is breaking. stick your hand inside and push up and down and see if its coming apart. if u look at it when it runs does it wobble?(the tub) if not take a look at the pulley on the back and see if its wobbly.

Weird rubbing or mild grinding noise when in spin cycle.


It sounds like the bearings on your tub are going. This is an expensive and difficult job to do. (approx $450 parts and labour and you may do more damage trying to take it apart)

Washer making noise in spin cycle


Is this unit new? I had a frigidaire that would really get to going on the spin cycle. Got the clothes really dry and sounded like a jet engine if no clothes were in it. Is it a whisling sound or screeching sound...The sound could be coming from the water pump. It may have something in it that is dragging. Some you can take the bottom off of and clean them out..
