Front load wash make loud whinning sound only in spin cycle.
Motor is turning. Sounds like a bearing. Is there another bearing besides the one in the motor itself?
Answer Hello Greg. Yes, based on the information you provided, you will need to order and replace the outer tub assembly on the unit. It sounds like the bearings in the tub assembly is bad.
My front load washer fills and drains (when I move the control to that area) but does not agitate or spin. Do I need to replace the motor? Thanks.
Answer Hello Penny. Check and see if the belt is broke on the unit. If not, and there is power to the motor, you will need to order and replace the motor on the unit
when motor is spun with fingers it will not move. Is the motor bad?
Answer Hello David
If the motor does not spin when trying to turn by hand then yes the motor is bad and will need to be replaced.
When the machine starts to rotate one way and then back the other way, it most of the time stutters. I changed the computer and timer and the next thing is the motor or door sw.
Answer Hello Phil,
You will want to make sure that the bolt holding the motor in place is tight. Check the belt for damage and if these check ok then the issue would be in the rear tub bearing.
If my frigidaire washer won't turn when on wash and wont spin, what could be the problem?
Answer Hello Chad. If the motor does not run in wash or spin, you will need to check and see if the lid switch is bad on the unit and needs to be replaced.
Front load washer. It makes a loud noise, of loud clicks and whining - continuously at spin cycle, with no spin and no draining. But the wash function seems fine. So if I have no spin cycle do I need a new motor? (it looks like in this model I have to replace the entire motor, the motor coupler is not sold seperately. Is this right?
Answer Hi Paul. Remove the back cover. Remove the belt. Hand spin the tub in both directions to see if there re any debris dragging the tub or if the rear bearing is shot. Hand spin the motor shaft and see if its bearings are shot part # 134869400. Remove the pump part # 137108000 inlet hose and see if any debris are inside the pump impeller. Replace the pump if the impeller is spinning loose on the pump shaft. It is common to find debris build up in the pump inlet hose and sump collector cup. Remove the cup and when it is clean, reinstall it in the 3rd top rib of the sump hose. Thank You.
