Question about Frigidaire Dryers

1 Answer

I have a fridgeair front load stackable dryer. The dryer tub has problems getting started rotating. At times it also makes loud noises coming from the back center of tub. In order to get tub started turning I can manually move tub an inch or two then it will start working. Although sometimes it will stop. What will cause this?

Frigidaire Dryers use a ball and socket in the rear to support the drum. The socket is made of a Teflon type of plastic that will wear out when the grease is no longer present. By now, the ball of the drum is probably grinding away at the metal support for the socket, thus the loud noise. At the same time the front seals are probably worn out. These two things combined is causing alot of friction keeping the drum from turning freely. The parts required to fix these issues are not that expensive. Getting the dryer apart to replace these items however is time consuming and easier with two people.
The top panel, control panel, front panel and the drum will all have to be removed.

Sounds like you have an unbalanced load. I know this sounds too easy but lots of times this is the issue. If it doesn't help then you could have a bearing issue where the belt goes around a pully under the tub itself. If so you will have to replace the pully itself and perhaps the belt if it's gotten worn too much.

Just bough a used frigidaire stackable unit model FEX831CS and washer makes extremely loud noise on spin cycle. and dryer takes over 2 hours to dry a regular load of clothes. Please help


Hello uucyc1 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the washer tub bearing, belt, motor or trunnion (steel bar that secures the inner basket to the transmission shaft). As far as the dryer, long dry times typically are a result of poor air flow. Make sure that the dryer exhaust vent is completely clear and that the unit is not overloaded. I would suggest contacting an experiencing service technician to determine the precise cause to both units.

If it is a banging or uneven sound, your tub and unit is not balanced any further. The tub could be off of the pulley/bearing supports and needs professional attention.

Your brearings are possibly worn, when the machine is off open the door and grab a hold of the drum (metal part on the inside) lift this drum if your bearings are worn it will have some play within its housing, i.e. it will move before the inner tub does and mannually rotate it you should here the bearings rumble if so also. they wear over time. you may be able to get them replaced but check prices first as it may be cheaper to get a new one bearing changes can be labour intensive.

Very loud spin cycle


It sounds like the bearings have gone out in the tub. The major cause of this is using powder soap. There is nothing you can do but replace the rear outer tub. This is a costly fix but maybe worth it for a stack unit.
