Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I'm looking for an exploded view to repair my Frigidare FLSE60RGS1 electric washer dryer combo. The dryer puts out a loud pitched squealing sound when it starts and while it runs. I'm guessing the pully or belt or both but i need to take it apart.

Hi,

There are 8 exploded views of your unit right here

Hopefully one of them of a couple of them together will give you the information you need.

May I also say that if it we me repairing that machine, I would replace everything that I could while it was apart...it's not that much fun and the parts don't cost that much....

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean


screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Grease leaking out from under adgitator


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. After looking at your model number the only source for the grease that your noticing has to be coming from the upper transmission seal. Unfortunately the seal is not listed as a single item for purchase. The only listing is for the entire transmission assembly. Item 3 this link:
. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Washer-dryer-combo-Parts/Model-FLSE60RGS1/1428/0152000/P0307249/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

The transmission part number is: 131878411 that is now superceded by PN 134736400

We used several screws in the seal and then wrap the screws with 0.020 lock wire to pull them out.

What really stinks is... this transmission seal can be replaced and can be bought at an automotive parts supply IF you have the sample in hand. The other problem anyone would have in replacing the seal is that you have to make a new gasket for the tranmission and discard / replace the gear oil in the tranmission once you open it. It is not a repair for the novice mechanic.

The agitator can be removed by taking off items 54 - 57 this link:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Washer-dryer-combo-Parts/Model-FLSE60RGS1/1428/0152000/P0307249/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

Here is a pdf file with all part numbers on pages 4 - 7 for this repait EXCEPT the upper transmission seal.
ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/prodinfo_pdf/webster/95375481.pdf
( I know that this manual is not 100 % exactly like your unit but the parts are 100% the same. )

Any other parts can be found on line here:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Washer-dryer-combo-Parts/Model-FLSE60RGS1/1428/0152000

We replace our own UPPER grease seals vs the whole transmission assembly. It is always a very time consuming / labor intensive repair.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Hi. My Neptune dryer was not sounding as I remembered it. A higher pitch than usual while it was drying clothes. Then I noticed it was reluctant to start when pushing the "start" button, with...


burning smell is because the drum is not rolling and the motor is trying to turn, hopefully it did not damage the motor: more then likely it the drum rollers/glides, might want to check the idler arm here is a website that will help. depending on fast you need your dryer a good and cheap place to buy parts is on eBay, of course they can be purchased locally, Good Luck Tim:

Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise


The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

High pitch squeal-metal on metal contact


A lot of dryers have plastic or felt slides on the drum. This is to reduce friction as it rotates. They are probably worn off.

Very loud after stacking.


I assume you used the kit for stacking and removing the top of the washer and installing the plates?



You might need some sticky rubber pads to stop metal to metal contact and some duct tape around the vent exiting the dryer where it meets its back panel. This is common, you could go specific or browse ace hardware and find a compatible source.

From the sounds of things, you are talking about a front loading dryer. The agitators in the dryer can get coins stuck inside them. Remove the top and rotate the drum to reveal the screws which hold the agitators to the drum. Remove the screws and the agitators, empty the coins or other debris and reinstall.

The loud squeal sounds like the pad under the open side of the drum is worn out. There may also be a dry main bearing in the rear of the dryer. Lubricate the bearing and reinstall the drum. The squeal should disappear.

If this is not a dryer or a front loading washer, none of these suggestions will apply, Sorry

Squeeky noise


I own a Frigidaire Heavy Duty Dryer The Model # is FDE436RES1. It is 10 years old. When running the dryer it makes a very loud squealing noise although the heat and the dryer still work. Is this a belt or roller problem or does it sound like something else. It is very high pitched and can be heard throughout the entire home. I do not know much about dryer troubleshooting so your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
