If the model # starts with 417. it's a Frigidaire.(POS!) Machines of that vintage had a LOT of problems with the rear bearing and/or the shaft ***'y coming loose from the tub. Grab the wash tub (the stainless steel one inside the door) at the top and bottom and see if it moves separately from the rest of the tub assembly. If it does and you can hear a clunk, throw it away and put the $130 towards a new one! ($130 service charge?? I GOTTA raise MY prices!!!)

Hi,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Fridigaire fwb9200es1 washer making rattling noise when spinning


Hello terilym - From what you have described it sounds like you possibly have foreign objects such as coins or safety pins in the tub or pump. I suggest unplugging the washer and carefully check the tub and to verify that the drum is also not damaged. If noise continues after washer is restarted, objects may be in the actual pump. Contact a professional to accurately diagnose and repair the unit.

Have you check the pump, all front load washer drain before filling. If you have coins or foreign object inside pump the can be the cause of scraping noise. I would also check the tub for nails or object that can poke through and tub on the outer tub during rotation. Most of the time its a foreign object in the pump issue. Good luck..
