Frigidare washer

Greetings, we have a Frigidare washer that rumbles in the rinse cycle, no matter what size load is in there, no problem with spin cycle when there is nothing in there.

Post model# so we can see what washer you have. Are you sure it is not in spin cycle? Most noises are in spin.

Maybe it's your clothes washer trying to compete with the furnace for the most noise.

I know that washer well. You have a bad bearing. It will need a rear tub and basket assy. Basket assy usually warrantied lifetime and tub 10 years. In recent years the warranty was changed to 1 year on everything. Check our owners manual to find out what you have. Repairs cost upward of 600 dollars. Warranty no mater which you have does not cover labor.

Lift the basket in the tub If more than a 1/4 inch of movement you are not to far from the end.

Lift the basket in the tub, do I do that by reaching in from the front or does the top pop up?

You usually have a few months left if all if is doing is roaring. If you turn drum by hand you will feel how rough the bearing are, Did you check your warranty?

Bearings feel fine when I spin the drum, If I pop the top would I be able to see anything else by looking in there? Did not check warranty,if labor is not included what is the use, cheaper to buy a new machine.

Taking top off will just show white tub and a few components. Just in case can you post a video with sound so I can hear the noise. If a roaring in spin it is the bearing. Labor 200 to 250 before I retired 5 years ago don't know now. New machine 700 up. Worth calling Frigidaire to find out. Need model and serial #'s when you call.

Hi pugsl, do these parts go anywhere inside or are they shipping parts that were left inside?, how do I check the shocks ? I removed the bottom pin and the shock seemed to have tension, as for the springs what should I look for?

Those are shipping bolts. Surprised they are inside. Shocks have a replacement kit but I never changed them unless broken. Springs are hard to tell anything about them. Only reason to change shocks and springs is if washer is walking across the floor. Not for a noise.
