Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer
My wash machine is front load, model 417.39022890. Just recently when it runs on fast spin it have big noise. I check the drum looks loose, I turn it and it has the noise too. I open the back cover and put it face down to the floor, the moter, the bell and the big wheel turns very well, and I believe the electric switch funtioning well too. Don't know what happened and how to repair it. Please advise.
This just happened to us this morning. Our washer is only 7 years old! Buy a new washer. That's what we're going to have to do.

Like the other guy says, the spider or tripod is broken. I don't know that a shop can repair this or not. The drum comes from the factory with the tripod attached and is not sold apart. Often when the spider goes, parts of the weld end up on the drain and could shatter the pump impeller. If you let it run this way, you will damage and break the shocks. The drum is $250 new. While the machine is apart, check the bearing. It is worth replacing anyway, just because you have it all apart. Check and clean the drain, pump and shocks. New shocks are $40 a set, the pump is another $100 if these parts go bad. Might just go out an buy a new machine. The labor on one of these jobs will take you all day to disassemble, get the parts, and reassemble.
