Frigidaire Gallery Washer, Loud Rapid Banging on Spin

6 posts in this topic

I have a GLTF1670AS1 washer and it just started banging loudly upon the spin cycle. I watched carefully as the drum was spinning and it did not seem as if the load was unbalanced. I'm thinking the belt is starting to fray and a section is banging against the case somehow. Does this make any sense? If so, is this a difficult repair?

Thanks in advance!

You might have broken shocks, a broken spinner support or one of the concrete counterweights on the outer tub broke loose.

Further evaluation today shows the banging only occurs when going into high speed. When I grab one of the plastic bars on the inside of the tub and pull back and forth, the drum bangs. So, is that a bearing or spinner support? Is either of those items difficult to repair?

That's a spinner support, and yes it's a rather difficult repair.You will probably have to replace the whole rear half of the outer tub as well.

You will need this:

Unfortunately, due to the price of the parts it looks like this machine is ready to be retired.
