Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description of " Makes loud noise on final spin cycle", My first suspicion would be a worn tub bearing.

The other possibilities are the suspension shock absorbers have broken, or debris in the drain pump...hopefully. That is best case scenario.

**unplug the unit from the wall or turn off the breaker before proceeding...safety first**

The first place to start is to remove the access panel at the bottom. there will be two hex head 1/4" screws...one on each side.

example...

Once the access panel is removed, look for the shock absorbers, 1 on each side of the tub for a total of 2.

example...

Your may differ in appearance then my picture if original and be plastic cylinder shapes...but serve the same function. They've revised them since yours was built, New part # 134564200.

If they are intact, good...but bad.

Next, check the pump. This will require some towels, a shallow pan or even better, a wet dry shop-vac.Frigidaire Gallery Makes loud noise on final spin - 8a476e1.jpg /> example...

Remove the boot to the tub from the back and the two hex head/phiFrigidaire Gallery Makes loud noise on final spin - c45ce7a.jpg/16" screws holding the pump to the base.

example...

The next ( and worse ) possibility is as I alluded to the main tub bearing.

You can check this by way of opening the door and grabbing the inner basket rim and moving up and down to feel for play...there should be zero play or zero tolerance in this bearing.

You can also remove the rear panel and visually inspect it as well. First, look for signs of leakage around the center bearing.

Second, grab the large pulley and try and move it back and forth or spin it with the belt off to listen for a grinding noise.

If it is indeed worn it will require practically the complete tub assembly ( rear wall with bearing Frigidaire Gallery Makes loud noise on final spin - 6309280.jpgasket )...that is the least expensive and easiest fix at around $400 for the entire assembly.

example...

You can opt to change just the rear wall and bearing with the basket in separate pieces, but it comes in around $370 and still leaves you with pulling the old one apart to re-use the front shell.

Either way this is a fairly involved repair and even for an experienced tech like myself can take 60 - 90mins. I'd guess it would take one who's never done it all day.

Let me know what you find and I'll do what I can to assist you.

Good luck. Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided here for you.

It sounds like something has come loose or some item was placed in the unit accidentally and it got lodged in the drum. You will need to start by taking the front cover off and looking around the drum.

My washer makes a loud noise in the spin cycle. It's a Frigidaire Gallery Washer Model 417.39012890. Any idea how expensive the repair will be?


In my experience with 417 Frigidaires is that when there is a noise in the spin cycle as you describe the drum bearing is failing. This is a very expensive repair that that when I looked up labor and parts could exceed 600 smakeroos.
