Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load washer

Just recently my washher started to make a knocking sound when it is on the spin cycle. The sounds gets worse the faster the washer spins. I re-arranged the load but it doesn't help. The problem started recently after washing a large blanket.

    Same problem. Machine screams in spin cycle. I took off the top and bounced that tub around. It does not seem to be external or under it. Broken basket? How do I fix that? Or do I buy a better brand washer.
    This thing is only four or five years old.

    My machine also make loud noises on the psin cycle. I took off the front panel and inspected the shocks...doesn't appear to be the issue. I also ran the machine and the motor does not appear to be the source of the vibration or the noise. I then tried rotating the inner tub by hand and did not feel any bumps or excessive vibration, but I can not get it up to speed like the motor. Does anyone know what the internal basket looks like? Are there rollers surounding the inner basket? Any help is greatly appreciated as my girlfriend can not afford a new machine or a service visit.

    New Frigidaire Washer FRF3700LW0-unable to get a "smooth" spin on spin cycles, shakes and "walks" across floor. Have tried redistributing the wash load (as it says in the manual), tried different wash settings, tried low spin cycle, have tried small, med, large wash loads, to no avail.

I have a year old FTF530FSO. The water amount is very small even on washing a large load.
Any way to increase the water level.

Take off the lower panel. Inspect the shocks too see if they are damaged. If they are OK turn the wash basket by hand if the knock is heard then most likely you have a broken wash basket.

I have a Frigidaire FTF530FS washer with a problem. The Timer gets stuck in between the drain and the spin cycle. It occurs when the timer dial is about 3 o'clock. I replaced the drain pump, the door...


Good Morning kvojik, thanks for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire front load washer is getting stuck between the drain and spin cycle. I noticed that you have replaced many components within your washer and continue to experience this issue. I would not advise to manually advance any part of the washer because this could cause issues within your washer. It could be a potential issue with the motor. At this point you may want to reach out to a technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you to avoid any further part purchases. -Matt

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-

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire washer, model# FTF530ES, is having trouble with the drum rocking back and forth, from front to back. I suggest making sure that your washer is level. I would check from front to back, side to side, as well as from corner to corner. If you have leveled your appliance and are still noticing the drum rocking from front to back I would suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

Front load washer FTF530FS1 stop mid cycle, sometimes for more then an hour, then starts up again, entire cycle can take more then 3 hours? Also during cycle is very loud.


Seems you have possibly 2 problems. One, check to see if the element is not faulty. If no heat during heating cycle, the washer wont proceed for a long time.. Two, if noisy, especially on spin cycle, the bearings (2 of them) and the seal are faulty. Replace them as soon as possible.

Washer bounces when spin starts and seems nosie


If it is brand new are the transit bolts removed? try spin with nothing in it and see if it turns smoothly, if not there is something broken inside, id spins smoothly it will be a fault in the dampers.

My frigidaire stopped working


The bearings are bad. My sears kenmore did the same thing. Do you have hard water, that would be one cause. Or maybe it's still under warrenty because it is not a cheap fix.

Frigidaire front load FTF530FS


If under warranty get a tech out there and have him check the control panel, clutch, and motor control board. If not under warranty its probably the clutch...they are made of plastic and will break....if the tube spins freely its the clutch. But those electrical boards do go out.

My frigidaire washer want spin


Sounds like the lid switch may have went bad. It has an independent drain pump so will still drain water. Give that a try and see. Godd Luck!!! Jim
