One of the shocks broke and during the final spin I believe a hole was put in the tub outer just above where the water drains out. It's a clean break and the hole measures 5mm wide by about 2cm long. Is there anyway to patch that hole or am I destined to buy a new front bulkhead as well as a shock.

Any idea why it chose to break tonight? The washer is six years old. It sounded like the load might have been somewhat unbalanced prior to the catastrophe. Let me know if a pic might help and I'll send one along.

Thanks in advance,
Theo

Shocks are a common failure on these Frigidaire washers. They have an upgraded design now. If you have the piece that broke out you can try some epoxy glue. If not you can come up with something to patch the hole. Whats with the metric system dude?:yucky: :down: The US gave up on teaching that when I was in grade school, around 1970.:D

Thanks. Hopefully I can find the piece, but if not I may try some 2 part epoxy filler. I ordered the front bulkhead just in case I am unsuccessful in patching it.

Re: metric. Most of the calculations I do are in metric, so it's force of habit. I'll stick to English Units from now on. Funny thing is, event those Limeys use metric now. Go figure.

Back again hoping to be shown the path to enlightenment.

So I replaced a broken shock on this model over the summer but that was not the problem. It turns out that the spider on the basket had corroded and failed catastrophically, causing the shock to break. Anyway, I replaced the basket and the rear tub about 9 months ago and everthing worked fine until recently. Now the washer is very loud during the final spin and I am not sure how to proceed. I have now put a total of $425 into the machine plus a lot of sweat equity. Should I give up and just buy a new one?

Since it's a stackable, I most likely will need to get a new dryer as well. The dryer is starting to eat laundry on the regular. I replaced the glides around the same time I fixed the washer and that solved the problem before, but now it's doing it again.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your quick response. Unfortunately I don't think I was clear in my previous post or my terminology was wrong. I already replaced the inner drum assembly because two of the spider arms had coroded through and broken free from the hub. Everything was working great, but now the washer roars during the final spin. I suspect its a bad bearing. My question has more to do with when I should call it quits and just buy a new one.

I'm open to any advice you have on the matter.

Regards,
Theo .

We do.

I'm familiar with the part you suggest. That put's the grand total to nearly $700 in less than 1 yr. I'm starting to regret not buying new when the spider arms broke.

Thanks again.

Why i always quote a customer both the basket and rear tub so they see that they are better off getting a new machine
