Question about Frigidaire GLTF530DS Front Load Washer
Washer was knocking front to back as well as side to side during tumble. Discovered both vibration dampener shocks had broken at upper mounts. Also, drum now spins freely by hand, even though belt is attached. Wondering if the broken shocks is a chronic problem, and what would allow the drum to spin freely? Is something else (e.g., speed control chip) broken??
What you need to check thoroughly are the belt & the 2 shocks (dampers). The dampers should be replaced & fitted tightly, broader ends fitted below.

I had the same problem, so I purchase a vibration/shock absorber kit for $31.95, part # 134564200. This kit comes with detailed instructions on how to replace the shocks, It took me an hour to replace and was a bit challenging. It's worth it though because you will save your self close to $100.00, I know because a Frigidaire repairman quoted me $120.00 to do the job. I decided to buy the parts and take a shot at it because if it turned out I could not replace them myself, I could of hired a repairman to do it and all I would of had to pay is for labor!
