Red Flag !! 1 year now instead of 5 year Warranty .
I'd stay far clear from purchasing any model washer from Frigidaire!
Any one think differently?

Gunk gets on clothes-stains them,i pulled agitator out and cleaned it off ran bleach thru-its better but still getting on clothes


The problem may be the seal on the transmission failing. If this happens, grease from the transmission (necessary for it to function) will leak and float (recall from science class that oil is less dense that water) up into the washer. As the grease enters the tub, it stains your clothes.

Washer makes a loud whineing noise when spinning or aggitate , oil on floor under washer, can you refil the transmision with oil


The transmission has a 10 year warranty, and you cannot refill without tearing it down. Check your owners manual for remaining warranty or call 1-800-253-1301 and they can tell you. They will need your complete model number and serial number.

Hi! GE top load washer model number wwse5240 is leaving grease stains inside the machine after laundering and of course on clothes. Not sure how old this machine is.


Your transmission is leaking oil. It's probably 10 to 15 years old for the transmission to be leaking. It can be replaced but it's not a small job. Part 320 in this diagram is your transmission. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5224109&diagram_id=22255027#d22255027

Very loud noise when washer is in wash mode,


IT COULD BE SOMETHING IN THE TRANSMISSION. DOES IT AGITATE AS IT IS SUPPOSED TO? IF IT DOESNT, I WOULD SUSPECT THE TRANSMISSION, IF IT DOES, i WOULD START BY LOOKING AT THE PUMP. THERE IS A PIECE OF METAL THAT HOLDS THE BEARING CENTERED IN THE PULLEY OF THE PUMP. OVER TIME, THE METAL CAN COME OUT AND MAKE CONTACT WITH THE BOTTOME OF THE PUMPS MOUNTING PLATE CAUSING QUITE A NOISE. ALSO, DEPENDING ON WHEN YOU BOUGHT YOUR WASHER, THOSE MACHINES HAD A TEN YEAR PARTS WARRANTY ON THE TRANSMISSION.

Leaking fluid


Hello cousinohlcj,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, why is my washer leaking a dark fluid?
How old is your washer?
This usually means your Hydraulic fluid is leaking from the washers transmission
When fluid is leaking out of a faulty transmission a it is only a matter of time till it stops working!
Most of the time if the washer is not under warranty it is not worth replacing the transmission which runs about 350 - 400 dollars. That is why I ask the year of the washer!

Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!

Repair or replace?


When to pull the plug on your old washer


Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:


When a repair makes sense.

If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.


If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.


The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to advise you!

Whirlpool Washer Model LSB6200PQ Top Load


I'm sorry but no, all major appliances now have a one year warranty unless you purchase an extended warranty.
To assist you I need the Make and model number. I also nee to know if you have experienced any water drainage problems in your home. This will help make a determination on what to look for.

Maytag SAV washer leaking all over floor


I have the exact same washer with the exact same problem. I have a home warranty that covers appliances so when they sent out the Sears technician, he took a list of parts and replaced about 9 things for a grand total of $450. If I didn't have a home warranty that only charged me $55 to do it, I would have just bought another non-Maytag washer.
