With nine years your machine reached an age that I consider close to end-of-life. Frigidaire / Electrolux boasts 25 years of warranty to some parts, but don't count on it. They'll enforce handling by an authorized service partner, upfront payment of several hundred dollars and eventually refuse refund due to too hard water in your area or they'll blame you of using unsuited detergents, all after two months of processing.

Leaking drums for these machines are quite common as they put together unsuited metals, in this case an aluminum extrusion spider in the back of the inner drum and steel parts elsewhere. Corrosion and leaking is pre-programmed.

  • Yep its the bearings, caused by the seal that is programmed to fail by factory and take out the bearings when wash water washes out lubrication, common problem with Chinese made washers...i.e. fridgedair, kenmore, electrolux, etc etc..look on ebay for replacement bearings and better seal as they can be replaced...but factory will not supply repair parts just new tub rear half at big$$$$ and big hassle...

Can you buy a frigidaire stackable washer separately?


Have you had a qualified service man look at your machine? I would think that the burned rubber smell would direct you to examine the belt (found in the very bottom after removal of front cover).
If it is the belt it is a very easy fix on this machine. The not draining part wouldn't be related to the belt the pump that does the draining is driven by its own electric motor and is easily visible when the front cover is off. Its located on the bottom left side. If a sock or other small item manages to get over the side of the basket it always ends up jamming the pump.
You would have to take the pump apart to retrieve the item and restore pump function
Good Luck

My roper wash machine is leaking. is it worth


check when it's leaking during the cycle.
If the fill hose has become unhooked from the outer drum of the machine, it'll just dump water all over the floor... it'll leak out of the case of the machine, but it's an easy fix... you simply open the machine, reinstall the hose into the drum or you may have to replace the hose...washing machines will last a good long time...it's worth the trouble to fix...let me know if you need help opening it up.
This can happen if the machine is overloaded... I had a laundromat and this happened alot because people were cheeeeep and wanted to overstuff the machine thinking they'd get a better deal...not true...dirtier clothes and broken machines....

I have a front loading frigidaire washer gallery 1670 series


I would say yes, its worth keeping. Mine leaked a while ago and I bought a new pump assembly. I think it was about $70. You can remove the two screws on the bottom of the bottom face plate and remove the cover. The pump is on the right side. Look for goo leaking out of the shaft seal. Verify before you buy parts, It could be the rubber boot torn or something similar.
Don't reach inside untill its unplugged.
You can replace the shocks easily too. Lots of parts places online with illustrated parts catalogs.

Maytag washing machine leak


I've got the same problem going on. You can take the front off the machine . Its two panels held on by four screws. This will expose the "guts of the machine, plus you can lift the top up, but not really enough to do a major repair. You will be able to see the water leaking though. Good luck. I bought mine used about three years ago and am thinking its not worth fixing. The machine I'm guessing is about 8=9 years old. If your looking for a used machine, you might want to check with a "Resale" type store. We have a Habitat for Humanity Resale store that gets good used appliances in sometimes. Of course, whenever you buy used, your taking a chance. However, when you look at the cost of new ones compared to used ones a couple of years old, it might be worth it. I looked at Maytags at my local Lowes, and they were about $600.00. Used ones are about $100.00. Good luck. Hope things work out for you.

Loud - maybe ball bearings gone


How old is the machine?
There are glides that the drum turns on that may be bad rather than a bearing!
How old is the machine? if it's 9 years old or more.Do not put good money into bad!
A new machine will save you a lot of money on energy. Enough to pay for it self in only a few years!

Drum on washer wont spin


It's not worth fixing if it's 10 years old or more, better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!

The belt is gone and or snapped off or the transmission is shot! And it's not worth replacing an old transmission.
If it's 10 years old or more buy a new one
and save your money ,fixing it is a waste!
Not worth the money to fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check the shocks on the bottom of the drum. I had the same problem and had to replace the shocks because they were broken in half.
