The tub has what is called "dogs". They are little brackets that keep the tub aligned so it doesn't flop around.
Another thing to do is adjust the feet on the bottom of the washer. It works best when you use a level on top of the washer and then adjust the feet so it is completely steady.

What causes my frigidaire top load washer to vibrate and make rattling noise during spin cycle


There are springs and bumpers/shocks in the machine that hold the tub. When they break or come loose, the tub wobbles.

Hello - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or you have another issue with the door lock assembly or the timer and control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Frigidaire top loader washer won't drain


Hi,

The timer has went bad in your front load washer.Thats the reason why the unit is not draining properly. If you move the timer manually to spin will it pump the water out? if it works that way then the timer is bad for sure. You should go for a replacement.
Thank you !!

I think a overloaded the washer and it wouldnt spin.


Frigidaire washer will not take a overloaded tub without causing belt problems.
Unplug the washer.
Remove the 2 screws on the very bottom of the front washer panel.
Slide the front panel down slightly and remove it from the cabinet.
Inspect the belt around the motor pulley and transmission.
If it is worn at all it needs replacing.
You could plug the washer back in and set it to Spin cycle and watch for the motor to turn and the belt slipping to verify a bad belt.
Keep your hands,fingers and tools away from all moving parts.

The plastic drum just keeps spinning freely during the wash cycle


Yes! to let you know that this is NORMAL when the washer agitates, due to the "Westinghouse" designed transmission, which in turn is called the "Franklin" design.When the agitator returns back stroke the washtub "indexes" before the agitator strokes forward. Thus moving the load around through the water while being moved back and forth.
Plus! to let you know that since the washer does NOT have "brakes" to stop the washbasket and hold the basket this design allowes the "indexing". This is one of the main reasons your washer has a safety lid interlocking device on it to lock the lid when it spins, because the washer has no brakes to stop the machine if the lid is opened during a spin cycle.

Whirlpool filling and washing, not draining, rinsing or spinning


Check out your outlet filter, probable it is clogged. Clean this out and refit. Most cases when the drain or spin does not work, it is the filter. This is a suggestion.
