Question about Frigidaire GLTF2940ES Front Load Washer
Welcome to FixYa
Based on your description I suspect the rear bearing or spider gear is toast. You are probably right, either the suspension shock absorbers are broke or the inner basket is separated from the spider gear often times.
Very common for these machines unfortunately. It isn't too bad if just shocks, but it is a very involved repair for the spider gear/inner basket.
**Unplug the unit from the wall before attempting any of these service tips...safety first**
You'll need to remove the lower access panel to investigate the shocks...these shown are the newer style but previous versions where all plastic, hence the broke much easier.
and the rear panel to inspect the basket & spider gear attachment. Check for any signs of leakage or rust behind where the arrow indicates...the tub bearing.
If you think you're up to it I can help in whatever manner possible with those Frigidaire washers.
I'll watch for your reply. Good luck.
