In most cases this is caused by the main bearing that holds the drum being siezed. If this is within warranty, it should be covered. If not, you'll need to tear the whole washer apart to replace it. Not a complicated job, but not for a novice. You'll need a service manual, but with that and average mechanical ability you can do the job on your own.

Hope this helps, but hopefully it's under warranty!

Ftf530es knocks during spin cycle


Good Afternoon Amy,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF530ES, knocks during the spin cycle. I also see that the drum moves from front to back and not up and down. I suggest making sure that your washer is level from front to back, side to side, and from corner to corner. If after leveling you washer, the drum is still moving from front to back, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your washer and determine why the drum is moving from front to back. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Washer is making a rapping noise on all cycles


The drum may have become damaged if it was moved without securing the drum.
Your washer probably came with drum "bolts" to hold it securely while moving it.

I have a ge washer model#wssh300g1ww. there is


You either have a bound up (frozen) drain pump, or knowing GE's reputation with washers, the transmission (gearcase) just dug it's own grave. How old is it? Depending on the age, it might have a frozen pulley.

WASHER DOES NOT TURN


Sounds like the motor has frozen. Try to work the drum loose from the bottom (empty and unplugged) it just might be jammed from a pen or similar item lodged inside (someone not emptying their pockets). Since its buzzing (its the motor TRYING to move the drum) it has to be jammed from something. Rarely it could be a bearing locked up in either the drum or the motor itself though its unlikely.

Sounds like a transmission problem. It's locked in agitation mode. When it is in agitation mode you can't turn the drum or move the agitator. I'd check that out.
