The bearings are worn out ,it's not worth to repair , the fact that your washer is old it's going to have more problems.

I have a frigidaire stackable washer/dryer model number FEx831cs0. The washer is working just find but the dryer for a few weeks has been making the worst screeching sounding in the world. I am not sure if...


A loose belt often makes a squeak that pulsates with the clothes hitting the paddles in the drum. It's probably the upper drum glide or rear bearing. If it's a constant screech coming from the front, it's probably the glide. If the noise seems to be in the back, suspect the bearing. You might check for a sock or something small that is stuck somewhere between the drum and the dryer.

Neither are very difficult to repair.

During spin cycle started making loud noise now drum feels loose DURING SPIN CYCLE DRUM SOUNDS AS IF IT'S HITTING SIDE.. FEELS LOOSE WHEN I PUSH IT AROUND FRIGIDARE GLTF1040ASO


ckd your warranty papers sounds like rear drum support(spider) has broken will require new basket and rear drum half est cost 400-600 spider is not a separate part and rear bearing is probably damaged that too is not a separate part and require rear tub replacement
