Frigidaire Washer - Loose Inner Tub

Model FWT449GFS0. Inner stainless steel tub is extremely loose. You can move it vertically about 3/4". Can this be tightened or is it usually a broken mount? Where can I find a diagram on inner tub removal?

Thanks

The inner drum is most likely broken. go to sears.com select appliances then select parts enter model number and you can get a blow up. Hope this helps.

My Frigidaire FWT645RHSO front load washer sounds like a propeller airplane when it spins...HELP!


Robin, it sounds like the tub bearings may be going out on your machine. With the washer empty, reach inside at the top and gently lift the inner stainless steel tub. Does it move up and feel like there is some slop or play in the tub. If the bearings are tight, the inner tub will not move much at all independently of the complete outer tub assembly.
Have you noticed any grease on any clothes recently? Usually what happens is the water seal fails and the water eventually washes the grease out of the bearings and they fail.
Depending on your skill level, there are some good online blogs about tub bearing replacement. You may not want to deal with it. You have to make the call on that. Thats my 2 cents worth. Good luck.

Pressure regulator knob broken


Do you think the knob is broken because it is loose? It should be loose and move easily over the valve. If it is really broken, you should contact the customer service of the home shopping channel where you purchased it.

Loose handle


Open the door and loosen the self threading screws around the sides of the inner door panel. Once this has been achieved lift the inner panel up so that you can access the door handle screws. Tighten these fasteners and reassemble the door panel.

Front seal not supporting drum, drum flops violently, doesn,t leak. seal wont stay on drum.


it sounds like you may have tub bearing issues or your suspension springs or shocks may be missing or broken. The front seal is just there for sealing, thats its sole purpose.
Basically there is two parts, the inner stainless steel drum and the outer plastic tub housing. Reach inside and see if you can move the inner stainless drum up and down any significant amount? If so the bearings are most likely shot. If its pretty solid but the outer plastic tub moves, its most likely a suspension issue. You can take off the top to get a much better view of the components.

Loud noise during spin cycle even when I rotate manually - loose


ok, from the sound of things you're not going to like me any better when i get done than you did previously.. :)
if you can move the clothes tub/basket (stainless steel with lots of holes in it) not only around in a circle, but forward and backwards, and i assume diagonally kinda/sorta also within the constrains of the outer plastic tub/shell u gots big problems!!
within the plastic outer shell that keeps the water in containment, and houses/contains the bearing and seal assembly, would normally rotate a 3 armed spindle to which that stainless clothes basket is attached, those attachment points were prone to fail!!! especially if you live where you have acidic water which attacks the pot metal spindle assembly within 2 or 3 years, sometimes a little longer but usually just out of "warranty" unfortunately. now be warned or happy depending on how your warranty is worded that some of those "electrolux/frigidaire" manufactured kenmore appliances came with a 10 year "part" warranty on that same stainless steel clothes basket, and if that has defected and destroyed the bearings within that rear tub half then sears in their infinite wisdom should and will "when pressured" replace them both as one led to the destruction of the other. the labor to change them would fall on your shoulders and i'm not sure what they are charging for that level of repair now.
if u had to buy those parts you are talking about approximately $170 for the rear tub half w/bearing, and $200 for the inner stainles steel basket..
if you've never changed one of these before plan on around 5 hours, 2 bandaids, and lots of patience as the bolts that hold the tub together are only available from the front yet you'll be doing most of your wiggling from the rear.. save the foam blocks that the tub half come with for shims/spacers to hold the front tub half up with once u remove the shocks and springs ;)
have fun, and best of luck to ya..

During a spin cycle what would cause the basket to be out of balance on every washload, even when there is not a balance issue. Basket acts loose and bangs against inside of machine


sounds like your bearings are excessively worn, open the machine door and hold the drum (stainless steel bit) try to lift this up if it moves freely without the tub moving (outer bit usually plastic or steel without holes) your bearings are gone. or the drum has broken off the wields that hold it to the shaft.
its sometimes cheaper to buy a new machine than repair the bearings and if the drum is loose it will eventually break something inside.

What is the model number? and year made?


Hose could be loose and leaking. Check and tighten all hoses first if problem persists, check if water valve is leaking. If not check the tub for leaks. If tub is leaking you may not want to fix as this is an expensive problem. If you want to fix use part number and call First Source Parts and as for a Washing Machine Tub.

Stainless steel drum loose


A loose inner drum usually indicates a failed rear tub bearing. The only solution is to replace the rear half of the tub. (which contains the bearing).... You can check if the pulley nut has come loose by removing the rear panel. There is a large nut that retains the belt pulley to the shaft of the basket.

LOOSE DOOR HANDLE ON GE PROFILE ARCTICA STAINLESS STEEL REFRIDGERATOR


I may need to know your model # from the sticker inside the fridge to view a diagram but usually there is are small set screws (usually 2) on the handle which are allen head that can be tightened.  Look for this first and let me know if there are no set screws.  If this is your setup then I would appreciate a solved rating.
