Frigidaire front load washer model LTF530DS loose drum

I have a frigidaire front load wahser and the drum seems to be loose. I first noticed dsomething wrong when the washer started making a load thumping noise like it was off balance at the end of the cycle. When i further examined it I've noticed that the drum is wuite loose almost as if it isn't secure anymore it rocks when I'm putting clothes in it and now thumps everytime it spins

    Drum can be pushed creating a finger-width gap between drum and door-seal. Machine doesn't leak. Loud banging during spin. Black marks on clothes.

I think that I have a broken spider as well. Problem is I cannot get to it. I cannot get the large drum pulley in the back off of the square shaft. Any secrets or just keep pulling? Thanks.

It sounds like your spider is broken it is on the back of the drum that's in side the machine and if that's gone normally your barrings need to be replaced i would normal do the barrings for abaut 65 pound if you do need a spider you are looking abaut 30 pound so if you go down to your local second hand shop they might take the job on it ain't a walk in the park but it can be done i have done so many now im in ipswich if your near me i would do the job but it would seem every one is so far away but try your local second hand shop they should help you.

You might check the shocks that help to stabilize the drum during operaton. Mine started doing what you are talking about, right before it broke. I looked like I was on a mechnaical bull, trying to get it shut down.

My GE GCVH6260FWW front load washer made a load snap while spinning. Repair man couldn't find anything. So we ran a load through and at the end of the wash cycle it started thumping and vibrating on high...


If the drum is also loose, it is dead. The plastic your are finding comes from a part inside. It will cost more (or close) to fix than to replace and you risk breaking other critical parts if you DYI.

I have a whirlpool duet front loading washer and during the spin cycle it makes a horrible thumping noise. It seems like the drum inside is very loose as well.


you may have a broken shock, remove lower pane with a 1/4 socket or nut driver, once you have done that you should see 4 shocks at each corner of outer tub, if one has come loose or broken it will sound loud when in spin, it should be easy to notice
