Possible the bearings are going. place yor hand in the bottom of the drum and run the drum around and feel the bearings for any wear/ noise/vibration. alteratively the bearings in the motor could have gone and spinning with the belt removed would prove this.

Good Afternoon Carrie,

I understand that you are hearing a loud noise in the spin cycle as well as water leaking from your Frigidaire washer, model# GLTF1040AS0.

You will commonly hear a high pitched "jet engine" noise during the spin cycle. If you are hearing a vibrating noise, it could be your washer is not resting firmly on the floor. With this you will adjust the leveling legs so the washer is level. If after leveling your washer you are still receiving a vibrating sound, you might want to redistribute the wash load inside your appliance.

If after you redistribute the wash load, you are still hearing a loud noise in the spin cycle, I suggest contacting a local authorized technician.

For the leak I recommend contacting a technician. This way they are able to find where the leak might be coming from and repair it before there is any damage done to your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My Kenmore Elite 3T washer has a loud whistling noise in the spin cycle. ??? Thanks!


When that happens it is often because the drum bearing is starting to go. The first symptom is a loud high pitched noise during the spin part of the cycle. As problem gets worsening you will notice that the drum will be a bit wobbly if you spin it by hand.

Here parts and diagrams.

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine

1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

The washing unit makes a high pitched loud noise

Check to see if you have a bra underwire or nail stuck in the spin tub. Look around inside the tub looking for something stuck in one of the holes. Dont use the machine until you find the problem or you cut the tub in half with like a nail or screw and then the machine has to be rebuilt $$$$

You may have other problems, However start here. Let me know if you have other questions
