No. with the cost of the parts that you purchase it would almost like buying a new one., and besides the other parts is waring out.

Frigidare Gallery 2 speed top loader fills with


It could be multiple problems, if so it's more than one of the below, it would be cheaper to buy a new unit.

Start by removing the front panel and check the belt and idler pulley/tensioner. Look for wear in both and make sure there isn't too much play (it should only move about a 1/2 inch when pushed on it's longest stretch. While you have the front open, inspect the pulley for damage or excessive play.

Another cause could be the transmission (it's just above the pulley). Look for fluid/oil leaks and/or rust. A bad oil leak can cause the transmission to seize up. If you notice rust accumulated on the transmission assembly, you probably have a bad seal. Water could have gotten in there causing it to fail. A damaged transmission needs to be replaced, repair parts are not available.

The cycling problem sounds like a faulty timer. Test it by advancing the dial and make sure the correct cycles are starting/stopping. This part can be replaced with a few simple tools.

As always, make sure you disconnect the power before doing any service.

Something rolling inside the Drum


The rear half of the outer tub, with bearing is part # 131525500 and it looks like the back "spider" shaft is not available as a separate part from the inner drum. The "spider" shaft is most likely worn or damaged and in need of replacement also.
131618500
Then, there's that strut
134564200
Now, two pain in the back side hours of your labor and you've got your washer back, at more than what a new one would cost! Junk it and get a new larger capacity front loader.
Please don't rate this, as anything but the top rating will lower my score. I'm just giving you my honest opinion, that your machine is not economical to repair. I've owned a LG front loader for over 6 years and think they are the best, but there are other good front loaders out there also.

I moved my washer cause of relocating and now when on spin cycle it makes a howling noise, what can i do to fix the problem, its a front loader gallery series??


If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly  and the outer shell with the tub bearing. 
Sometimes the inner basket support will crack, this can give an clicking or banging noise as well.
 
Pictures of this job...
A sure indication was the brown junk/gookus leaking out if the rear bearing area and the belt has spewed it around in the drum that the rear bearing and seal was bad...
Picture1 - Picture2
The whole outer shell and basket come out to do this repair....what bad bearing and rusted shaft looked like...
Picture1 - Picture2 - Picture3
I had to remove the back panel. Undo the pump hose & water level hose, remove the 2 shocks, remove the motor, undo the front boot from the outer panel and remove the 2 springs to lift the whole assembly out from the back to work on it.

How to take apart drum assembly on kenmore front load washer


Is this a HE2,5,4 model? Can you give me the model number from inside the door. If it's a front loader. The only way you can get it out is to totally tare it down, cement, springs, shocks, and crack apart the outer tub. Very very labor intense. Usually if the unit is out of warranty, the cost of a tech to do it isn't worth it. What's the issure with it?

Whirlpool Duet Washer (GWH9100LW1) Bangs Loudly during spin


how old iss your washer? do you have an owners manual. because usually there is an extended factory warrenty on the tub and basket. the only thing you would have to pay for would be the labor. Call whirlpool if you do not have a owners manual to find out. the bearing is compressed in the tub. does it sound like an airplain taking off in your house that's usually it.

Tub bangs and seems to be spinning out of round


One of the support arms on the back of the spin basket (stainless steel tub) is broken and causing it to spin in the fashion you describe. The only fix is to replace the spin basket. Using it in its current condition will cause serious damge to the outer tub shell. Let me know if you decide to replace it or need assistance locating a replacement tub. I can assist you in how to disassemble the washer and how to reinstall a new tub. Sorry...I wish this was better news.

The plastic casing (tub shell) around the stainless spin basket should not become worn unless the spin basket is hitting the outer shell. From my past experience, this is usually caused by a cracked or broken spin basket support (spider) arm on the back of the spin basket, or a shot tub bearing (which is also behind the spin basket). The bearing is actually part of the rear tub shell and is molded into the plastic. It cannot be replaced separately and requires the replacmeent of the shell.

If the spin basket supports become broken, the basket becomes off balance and rubs against the outer shell. This results in excessive vibration, which may be the reason why the support shocks were broken. No...this is not normally expected. Unfortnately, this is not a simple or inexpensive repair, either. If you have a service plan, or warranty coverage, I would recommend pursuing that as a repair option. If you wish to repair this yourself, I can post a link for you to follow, but it is expensive. This will usually require the replacement of the following parts:

Spin Basket
Rear Tub Shell (if bearing is bad)
Front Tub Shell (if spin basket caused significant damage)
Support Shocks (I would recommend replacing all 4)

Optional:
Drive Belt Pulley (can become warped or bent)
Drive Belt (if showing signs of wear)
Rubber Door Bellow (if vibration as caused damage to the rubber)

You can go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number to get prices for everything if you like. Everything can be found under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading, with the exception of the rubber door bellow. It can be located under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading.

I know none of this sounds like positive news, but I do hope you find some of this information helpful. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Samsung P801DWN/XAC washing machine. Drum attachment to shaft broken. Wish to identify part(s)and obtain part(s).


I have the same problem, the drum attachment (casting) arms broke in two locations (out of the three available), caused serious havoc ... destroyed the outer plastic drum casing by disloding a screw and then dragging it around and gouging out a deep deep groove in the plastic casing, went right thru in one spot ...

Have to order the front drum (DC61-30346A, $45) and the stainless steel drum/casting assembly (DC97-00785A, $200) and rebuild the whole unit.
