The inside barrel, or what ever it is called, keeps jerking really hard when its done with a cycle. It practically moves the washer itself and sometime when it is filling up, the water doesn't go into the center because the center is to the front and the water goes down through to the floor. so.
Hello I have a fridgitaire top laoding washer the barrel is spinning ok but when it is in spin or even power spin cyle its not draining the water into the hose on back instead some water was coming out of the back of the machine what does this mean?

Re: Washing Machine trouble
The easiest way to solve this without taking the machine apart is to tilt the machine back and look under it.
Above the transmission and clutch you will see the brake assembly. It is a little aggrevating to get to with the cabinet on, but you can spray it with some silicone lube and it will help this problem. You may have to spray it then put into spin, stop it and spray again. After it spins and stops a few times it will usually smooth out.

Your bearings will need replaced. Usually, the transmission is near the end of it\'s life by the time this happens and since it\'s easier to change out the transmission than the bearings (the bearings are part of the transmission) it fixes your bearing problem. However fixing just the bearings is a lot cheaper. There are some things you can check to see if the transmission itself needs replaced. First thing is to look at the inside of the front panel you removed. If there is a band of slung oil about a foot from the bottom the transmission is toast. If no oil is present lift the lid and remove the agitator. It pulls straight up (no screws to remove) with a quick jerking motion. I just put my hands around the neck of it like i\'m choking it and give it a quick kind of hard jerk. If it gives you trouble let me know. Once it\'s removed you will see a large plastic coupler. Make sure it doesn\'t spin and wiggle it side to side. There should be no spin or wiggle. If there is wiggle there may be a sick sloshy sound as you wiggle it back and forth. That\'s oil and you will most likely see it on the underside of the coupler as well. Use the machine a few more times and you may see oil on your clothes. Obviously that transmission has gotta go. If you are handy with tools you can change it yourself. There is a large 1 11/16" hub nut that will need removed. Other than that no special tools are required. Still plan on using up the good part of a day replacing it if you\'ve never done it and completely dismantling the machine. When you are done though you will enjoy a machine that is practically new again. You can buy new transmissions on eBay for somewhere between $100 - $150 any day of the week. The $150 ones should come with a new hub nut, tub seal and turtle brake at the very least, if not you\'ll need to purchase them seperately. It\'s also possible you\'d need what they call a tub bearing, but usually those are okay. Let me know. I can walk you through the process or perhaps find you more info. Good luck.
Hello fire_rod - From what you have described it sounds like either the transmission is failing or the trunnion, which secures the tub to the transmission shaft has broken. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
does it drain water, seems like it's gonna spin then starts filling up again? if this is what's happening it mean the washer is sensing that the load isn't balanced and it fill back up to move the clothes around and tries again, it will keep doing this untill it senses a balance of weight in the drum. if she tries moving the clothes around herself before it done draining she maybe able to keep it from doing this
You may have some detergent residue inside the tub assembly. You should run a tub clean cycle and use some washing machine cleaner. You can get that at any hardware store. If you don't have a tub clean setting, use the sanitary wash cycle without any laundry inside. You must use the hot water setting for this to work. If you haven't done this in a long time, you may have to run this cycle at least once a week for a month to really clean the machine properly.
If you think that the washing machine belt is the cause of your troubles you can find it in the very bottom of the machine (behind the front panel)
Would need more info on the dryer problem, (Is it running with no heat or not running at all)
the washer drive belt is the only easy fix on this model.
