An extreme vibration in spin cycle. It makes the


Because front load washers are VERY HEAVY, they shake if you have a wooden floor. If your front loader sits on concrete and it still shakes, then you have to make sure all is balanced. If it still shakes, then inside the system there are shock absorbers that need to be checked.

Vibration problem with Frigidaire front load washer.


Can't tell you about your particular model, just some generalities:

Unless the shock actually failed from a defect, you might have broken or damaged something else. Check especially for wires or other parts pinched between the tub and other parts or the housing. Also, make sure the tub shaft hasn't broken or worn the seal at the rear or the seal at the front. If this unit has ballasts one of them may have broken or broken loose to cause the shock to break. I had one similar with that problem. Might want to take the ballasts off the tub or brace it to keep from stressing the bearing and seals. Mine had three ballasts, one large cast iron one on top of the tub and two concrete ones either side. One of the concrete ballasts broke and the tub vibrated and pinched wires and damaged seals and was totaled. If nothing but the shock is broke, it's probably worth repairing. However, the other shocks also have the same amount of wear, check them carefully first. Also, check the seals while you're in there. Use a digital camera and take pictures of everything before you take it apart and be very careful with wire routing. Most parts are held with (probably) metric and Phillips. Always unplug it to work on it and plug it into a ground-fault protected circuit. Best to set the machine up to run then plug it in remotely if possible.
