Question about Frigidaire GLEH1642DS Front Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Very Noisy Washer!

Recently, my washing machine has started to sound like a jet plane during the spin cycle. It is so loud, it is ridiculous....we can't even hear the television two rooms over when it gets to the spin cycle. Any ideas about what may be going on and whether or not there is a remedy? Thanks

    Thank you for your ideas...most likely, it is the rear support of the inner drum or the rear bearings. Do you know if either of these issues can be repaired? We have a service warranty through our utility company. The washer/dryer are about 9 years old.

Hello julierealtor how old is the washer? Try turning the inner drum by hand and see if it is noisey or moves up and down. If so then it is either your rear support of the inner drum that has failed or the rear bearings. If it seems fine, maybe you have something in the drain pump (which runs prior to and during the spin) that is causing the noise. If it is noisy during the drain, then you may either need to clean out the pump or replace it. Hope this helps.

    Yes they can replace the parts. Good thing you have the warranty as this repair is usually around 600 to 900 dollars. It seems to be normal for this to happen to the front load washers in this time frame.

SOUNDS LIKE JET PLANE WHEN IT GETS BY RINSE AN SPIN TIME


I assume you mean it sounds like a jet plane when it spins, if so, I suspect a bad tub bearing. Depending on age of the machine, probably too expensive to repair.

Whirlpool washer WTW6400SW very loud spin cycle, sounds like airplane taking off


Most likely it is the spin tube bearing worn. Reguires some know how and special tools. Requires a major dismantle of the machine and usally I did these repairs in the shop. Bearing will eventually sieze over use and time. Labor will probably exceed the value of the machine.

It sounds like the high speed of your motor is not functioning which tells me it is either burnt and needs to be replaced, or that the control dial is malfunctioning. Because those motors have two or three speeds, usually one of the speeds of the motor is malfunctioning. Always check connections too, and see if it functions in the spin on another cycle. Best of luck. C

Could be a loose belt, or drum bearings,or ( drum rollers if your model is so equiped) In my mind machine would be worth repair when needed.

Loud noise during spin cycle


this is my experience repairing the maytag washer Atlantis mav series 9750 aww, I had to replace the spin bearing since it was making a jet engine noise when it was spinning out the water. its not an easy job for my 1st time taking this machine apart, you literally take it all apart to get to this bearing, but now I can show how to do it with pictures making it easier for you to do it. even if you have to replace something other than the spin bearing, this how to tutorial will show you how to get to most of the parts in this machine
