Question about Zanussi WJD1457W Front Load Washer / Dryer
My machine seems to be washing ok but has developed a constant deep groan during the washing and rinse cycles - the best description I can give is it sounds like an idling diesel engine. The sound doesnt change whether the drum is moving or stationary, and is not there during draining or spinning. I have also noticed that the jets which used to spray water on to the clothes during washing are no longer working and wondered whether this may be related?
Got a response from another site - the noise was due to the recirculation pump (situated low down at the back on the other side from the drain hose) which was working, but clogged with a nasty grey 'porridge' of limescale and powder residue in the pipes either side of it. Dismantled, cleaned out pipes and ran a wash cycle to clear any remaining crud out. Seems ok now and wash jet working, noise gone.

Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided you are hearing a squeaking noise during the wash rinse cycle on your Frigidaire washer. You could be hearing the noise from your motor during that operation, this is normal. Additionally, if you feel that this is noise an issue I would contact a professional to come out and diagnose your appliance properly. -Matt
