Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

Front Loader- drum is loose

I have a Frigidaire Gallery front loader and when it spins, it squeaks and "knocks" so loud it sounds like it is going to explode any second. I can move the drum around freely- obviously not a good sign. We don't know much about this and are desperate to hopefully fix it on our own.

I had the same problem and last night the drum dropped. It is no longer suspended in the washer it is hanging in hte machine. Repair man said it does not look good. Glad I bought the extended service contract.

I have a Fridgedaire Gallery front loader, was making a loud banging noise on spin cycle, now the whole drum has dropped! help!


The symptoms that you describe sounds like the spider arms that support the drum are broken. It is a very expensive repair. Get a few estimates, before deciding whether it is worth repairing or replacing. Sorry.

Why is my front loader so load when it spins?


If it gets louder as the spin increases then its most likely to be the drum bearings causing the problem.

This can be a very costly repair so I would recommend several FREE quotes before you agree.

FWT445GES1 Washer makes loud banging noises like it's going to explode.


Washer- you need a complete tub and bearring kit. this is a common problem for people who have well water. (also just happens) the rear yoke has become corroded and broken. its a costly repair.

dryer - you would need a new front slider seal. very simple to install.

Loud knocking on spin cycle with a little squeak


This is joyce
how old is your unit?
I just had to have my barrons replaced in my machine and it was sounding like a airplain taking off in house. so I know what you are going through. it cost about $80.00 for service call and $80.00 for barrons to replace in my machine I dont know how much for yours, just call your local dealership on monday and give them your model # and ser# and they will tell you, it took them over 2 hours to replace my barrons in my front loader, so its no easy job. if you need me to help you find someone to help just let me know,
thanks

Drum is really loose and when hits spin cycle makes loud noise


Most front loaders are pretty much the same and it sounds like your tub bearings are going bad. There is also a problem in some front loaders where the drum arms corrode and break. You won't know until you pull it apart. If you are doing the work yourself it depends on the parts you need. You can knock out old bearings and match some up.
If you are paying someone, it may be cheaper to buy a new washer..

Hi there is it a top loader or front? If a front loading machine it might be the concrete block has come loose under the top cover.

Washer Stopped Spinning


My Frigidaire front loading washer is less than 2 years old and YES there is a belt, I am going to replace my 3rd belt this week.....the wheel on the back of the drum has moved enough, even after numberous times of tightening, that it has worn a HUGE hole in the back of the drum from the belts. I will NEVER buy another product from them again, due to not standing behind their product and sending a repair man to my home to fix it, then telling me that I will have to replace the drum....(ltf2940es0).
