I have a Frigidaire top load washer mod #GLWS1339ESO mfg 08/06. Everything seems to work except spin cycle. I have it apart. The motor pulley turns when the washer goes to spin cycle, but the belt wouldn't catch. I replaced the belt which didn't help, then adjusted the spring on the tensioner, which didn't help. If I put extra tension on the belt between the motor and the drive pulley, the belt catches and the basket takes off (spins). When it took off though, it made a regular clicking noise, sounding like from the top of the basket. I removed the agitator and found no foreign object. I removed the rim that sits atop the basket and the tub. I found the outer edge of the plastic basket was very rough on about a quarter of it, which I think explains the clicking noise. I shaved this area to smooth it, which seemed to take care of the clicking. I noticed that the basket is not level/plumb with the tub, which I think really explains the clicking sound. Could this help explain the problem? If this is a problem, how do I fix it? Now when I test, it does take off sometimes without any help from me. Thanks.
