Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a GLTF1670ASO Frontload washer - the spinning is getting louder and louder, Sounds like a jet engine taking off. It also doesn't matter what spin cycle it is on, it always spins fast and leaves little black rings on clothes. It also has now just stopped where the drum doesn't go through the wash cycle, it doen't turn at all. I have this sense that this is going to cost a lot of money to fix. The washer was purchased in 2004, should it be having problems like this? I need a washer, and will probably start looking for one, but if Frigidiare has problems like this I'm not sure if I should purchase another Frigidaire.

Your bearings and seal/s need replacement. Not something a non appliance technician should tackel.

Now when it does spin at top speed it sounds like a helicopter taking off and the actual washing machine is only shaking a little But it is draining now.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.This is a common sound if the main bearing failed.Check your warranty to see if its covered.If it is the bearing it is expensive.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Very noisy when on spin. The machine seem to be balanced however the noise on spn is like a jet taking off. it gets louder as the spinning speed increases.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Jet engine??!!


Friend,
ngafm at your service!
How old is the washer?
It sounds like the tire out of balance syndrome!
Like a car tire that sings or vibrates when it's out of balance!
It may be a worm part thats spinning and you should call service and not take any chances, with this matter!
How long has it been sounding like this?

Front Loading Washer LOUD NOISE


IF IT ROARS LIKE A JET PLANE TAKING OFF, THE SPIN BEARING IS FAILING. PROBABLY, THE REAR SEAL HAS FAILED ALLOWING WATER TO GET INTO THE BEARING.
THE BEARING HAS LOST ITS LUBRICATION SO IT IS GETTING DRY. IT WILL CONTINUE TO GET LOUDER AND LOUDER THE LONGER REPAIRS ARE PUT OFF.
THE ENTIRE BACK HALF OF THE OUTER TUB WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. THE BEARING IS PART OF THAT ASSEMBLY. CAN BE A COSTLY REPAIR.

Loud noise during spin cycle


this is my experience repairing the maytag washer Atlantis mav series 9750 aww, I had to replace the spin bearing since it was making a jet engine noise when it was spinning out the water. its not an easy job for my 1st time taking this machine apart, you literally take it all apart to get to this bearing, but now I can show how to do it with pictures making it easier for you to do it. even if you have to replace something other than the spin bearing, this how to tutorial will show you how to get to most of the parts in this machine
