Question about Frigidaire FTF2140ES King Size Front-Load Energy Star Washer w/ Tumble Action
Washer machine works well during wash cycle. On the rinse cycle machine fills and drains at same time. Removed quater from drain boot once and everything else is clear. While replacing grain boot first time I slid it up to high and it leaked, readjusted boot bt sliding it down a little wit h no more leaking. Stumped thanks
I have a FTF530FS about 5 years old. Just recently it started to make an awful noise during the spin cycle, as if the washer is overloaded or off center.
Anyone have any ideas for me before I pay to have Best Buy come out and look?
Thanks in advance

Two year old washer is fine during wash cycle but it has started to drain water when it is supposed to be filling for the rinse cycle. It is as if a valve stays open or something. Water enters the machine than drains at the same time. At first this happened only on color setting but now is happening on all settings. Discharge hose is set plenty high. It is not a siphoning problem.

Tips for a great answer:
If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.
First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.
Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.
