Question about Frigidaire FTF530FS Front Load Washer

Open Question

Good day...i have a 2 yr old electrolux ftf530fs1 washer and i am begining to notice a clunking noise as the washer is coming to a slow down after spinning and also as it starts to spin again (not final spin mode) The clunking noise lasts only 3 to 5 revolutions during both slowing and acceleration of spin cycle.. could it be out of balance? Am I doing damage if I continue using the washer? If it is out of balance, can I reset it myself? Other than the clunking noises, Perhaps maybe 70% of the time, not always, it works great!! Thank you for your time and much appreciated

SOURCE: 5 yr old washer is leaking

Ellbee, remove the two screws at the bottom of the front panel and lift it towards you. Two clips on the top that hold it will release. You can now get a good look at the pump. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: noise when ge washer put in spin mode

this could be one of two problems.

The first which is fairly cheap to repair would be to check the carbon brushes in the motor, they may need replacing, especially if your washing comes out wetter then it should.

The second is the bearings on the drum which is more expensive to replace and would need to be done by an engineer.

SOURCE: Clunking noise and vibration during final spin cycle

For all those who say they recently bought the machine, the cause of the machine "walking across the floor" and vibrating violently is the packaging bolts on the back of the machine that were supposed to be removed when the machine was installed (why it says remove packaging bolts in the installation manual). These packaging bolts hold the suspension steady and firm during shipping but MUST be removed before operating the machine. When these packaging bolts (I think there are four total, some up to 6 inches long penetrate the rear of the machine) are removed, they allow the suspesion to absorb the vibration.

SOURCE: I am getting a vibrating noise from my washer

It sounds like you could have multiple issues but a possible cause of the vibrating right before the final spin is a broken shock absorber if one or both are gone it will throw off the center of gravity inside the machine and allow it to move freely and at high speed or even low speed this is not good. part number for both shocks is 134560400. If your machine just stops before the spin cycle and only drains, you could have a faulty door switch. the washer will not spin for safety reasons if this is gone. part number for the door lock switch is 131763245. as well the striker that hits this door switch can be broken and sometime pieces will be left inside the mechanism. part number for the striker is 134456640. The last cause of your washer not spinning could be a motor speed control board, if this is faulty, the motor will not receive the proper amperage to send the motor into spin cycle. speed control board part number is 134409904. Hope this helps.

Thanks

This smell usually comes from items caught in the hose. If you can remove the bottom front panel, (usually 2 screws holding this down) then you will see a rubber acordian piece attached to the water pump. If you remove and clean this the smell should not remian. I just removed mine and found many coins and a huge ball of stinky lint, hence the smell. Good Luck!

Clunking/thumping with spin cycle, reduces as spin speed increase


It's hard to tell without looking at the washer. But my first response would be that the transmission is wearing out. Inside the plastic cover for the adgitator is a metal drive stem. This assembly has a pulley on the bottom where your motor attaches to; inside the bottom of your washer. It is quite common after many years that these go bad. Have you ever noticed unexplained grease or other stains on your clothes after they came out of the wash?

Check the front struts ( shock absorber ) If original or very old, they are doing no good. Also check the front TORSION BAR rubber bushings. In low temps will groan and creak, on up and down motions.

I HAVE A 6 YR. OLD MAYTAG PERFORMA PAV 2300 TOP LOADING WASHER. UNIT WORKS FINE EXCEPT FOR LOUD CLUNKING NOISE AFTER SPIN CYCLE. NOTE - ALL BRAKE COMPONENTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED.


It sounds like a spn down noise. I would check to see if the brake spring was changed when the brake and stator was. They had some problems with weak springs.
