I'm a newcomer to the forum and I want to say hello. I'm an Hvac&r Tech with over 16 years of experience and I plan on helping out in that forum, but I'm in this forum because my washing machine has gone crazy. When it goes into spin cycle the drum starts banging around really bad. I have replaced the shocks on it because it sounded like the logical thing to do since that is what they do, absorb shock. Unfortunately that has not fixed the problem. The unit is a Frigidaire M#LGH1642DS0 stackable front loader.
Today, after putting the new shocks on the washer and running it through a cycle I noticed that along with the drum bouncing all over the place there was a knocking noise coming from what appeared to be inside the drum itself.
I read somewhere in this forum that if you hear knocking to check the bearing by holding the outside drum and moving the inside drum to see if there is any play. Well there is a little, but not enough to make all the racket.
looking into the glass....Rrrrr, plastic door, should the boot cover the inside drums' edges with no load in it? What I mean is, should the inside drum be in the middle of the boot? Loaded or unloaded?
Any help would be wonderful. Thank you

Sorry for the double post. I needed to edit the first one and when I hit back on my phone it just created another post. Won't happen again :-P

Any play between the inner and outer tub must be delt with. From what you are saying that is the main source of your problem.

Let me get this right, the only place that the inner tub and the outer tub are connected and supported are the rear bearing? There is no guide or support in the front?

There is a bearing, shaft and spider bracket supporting the inner tub. The spider brackets are known to crack or break completely.

Thank you for your help.  I have pulled out the inner and outer drum and unbolted the outer drum to access the inner drum.  I have removed the bolt on the pulley side and the pulley does not want to come off.  What is the best way to remove the pulley and once the pulley is removed will the inside tub come loose?  I was going to order the inner tub  131618500 but do you recommend replacing any other parts while I have this thing tore apart?

put bolt back on the shaft, socket on that bolt and tap on socket, this should drive the shaft in a lil ways and loosen the pulley

you use the bolt and socket so you dont mushroom the shaft smacking on it

 

you will probably find the trunion no.23 in the part diagram has a broken arm

 

VERY common on the frigidaires in houses with water softeners,  softened water eats away the cast aluminum


The only stupid question is the one not asked

hope i've been helpfull, if you wish to buy Brnt beer kick here

I was looking at the parts that were available and ran across this
Item #936915 (OEM Part)
MFR #134146100 which it states that it is a seal that goes between the two outer tubs. I did not see one when I separated the outer tub. Is this seal needed? It looks like it may be #21 on the diagram above.

That seal is probably there in the channel of the back half of the tub assembly, inspect it and if it looks ok you don't need to replace it. But if it leaks you will curse me for that advise! If you're not in a big hurry order it.

Ok, I would first like to thank the people that contribute and the creator of this site. The help provided was accurate and prompt. I've been operating my washer and dryer for a month now and noticed that during the first rinse cycle the washer will start to drain and fill while slowly spinning. That part is great but the tub will start to spin at a certain rpm, which isn't to fast, and the tub will hit the sides of the dryer a couple times and then it will stop and start to the next rinse cycle. This only occurs on the first rinse as the washer only spins at this rpm for about 5 to 10 seconds. All the other rinse cycles spin at different rpm's and there is no banging. I don't feel that this is normal. Any help would be great.
