Question about Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer
Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washing machine drum will not turn. Fills with water and motor tries to turn drum but stops with a clunk after a very slight movement then tries to trun the other direction with the same result. I undid the belt and the motor turns freely but not the drum. The pump drains the tub if I advance the dial manually. Bearing problem?
Possibly a bad bearing but to get to that point you would have heard a noise similar to an air plane taking off in your laundry room,if you haven't heard such a noise try this,with a flashlight look around inside the drum of the washer,what your looking for is something that may have dropped into one of the holes,a screw.a nail,a piece of wire possibly even an article of clothing that got around the seal in the front of the tub,look around the front edge of the tub for the latter,the motor has an amp and tach read through the main control so if it reads anything that gives much resistance it will stop and try turning the other way.
On the other hand if you have neighbors coming out into their yards looking for crashing planes every time you do laundry you probably have a locked or frozen bearing,and thats not a job you want to tackle yourself.But it wouldn't hurt to check with Frigidaire on the warranty for the latter.
