Question about Frigidaire FWTR445R

1 Answer

FRIGIDAIRE FRONT LOAD WASHER

VERY LOUD DURING SPIN. LOADS ARE BALANCED . WAS TOLD TO LOOK AT BEARING FOR LEAKAGE AND THAT MEANS A BAD BEARING. I JUST TOOK THE BACK COVER OFF THE MACHINE AND THE DRIVE BELT, WHEN I EVEN SLOWLY TURN THE PULLEY SOUNDS LIKE GRINDING GRAVEL. WHEN I SPIN FASTER IT STARTS TO SOUD LIKE THE BAD NOISE I HEAR DURING THE SPIN CYCLE. I THINK THE BEARING IS SHOT. IS THIS POSSIBLE EVEN THOUGH THE SEAL IS STILL GOOD?

Why does the Drum spin erratic even without clothes in it?

might be a warped spin basket or the dampers could need to be replaced. could even be a bad spin bearing. if it was bearing, normally would be associated with a loud noise during the spin cycle though.

Washing machine travels during the spin cycle

Hi - Try to rotate the drum when it is not in use, manually and see if you notice the sound as well. If you do the drum is not balanced and you would need a professional technician to diagnose the bearing and pulley system behind the drum for repairs.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine

Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

Maytag Neptune front load washer model MAH3000AW, load during spin cycle

YOU MEAN LOUD DURING SPIN CYCLE? IF THAT SO, WHAT KIND OF NOISE? BANGING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE UNBALANCED LOAD OR ONE OF THE SUSPENSION IS BAD OR FELL OFF. GRINDING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE A BAD TUB BEARING, TO REPLACE THAT, YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE REAR TUB ASSEMBLY, VERY COSTLY. MEANS YOU PROBABLY BE BUYING A NEW WASHER.

Loud clunking sound during the spin cycle, washer is balanced and on 2nd floor

If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise islouder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, probably drum bearing spider had broken.

On a front load the drum bearing is located at the back of the drum.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Making a loud noise when on the spin cycle and not balanced

It could be a drum spring has broken or stretched too far, there is too much of a heavy load in the drum, or the bearing needs replacing.

My model #gltr1670aso makes loud noises during spin cycle

Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig

During spin cycle washer spins fine but toward the end of the cycle it spins out of control like it is out of balance? Any help is greatly welcomed.

Some front loaders have a super high speed at the end of the spin. Front loaders don't like small loads, the laundry does not spread out evenly enough for a balanced spin.
