Hello,
Happy 4th to all!!! I'm a maintenance man and I had a call today for this washer. Guest said washer was making terrible sounds. When I got there, she turned washer on and it made a loud noise like the motor was stuck. I did a visual check of the washer and nothing stood out. I turned it back on and it ran fine with no noises. Washed her clothes in it without any problems. Guest leaves tomorrow and I want to go back and take another look at it, but I don't really know what to check. We only have these front load washers in the very few handicap units on property and I have not had the opportunity to get properly acquainted with them. I'm thinking maybe the circuit board is getting ready to go, but not sure. Any help would be gratefully accepted!

Not too much to this one.  Manufactured by Frigidaire.  Electric pump susceptible to damage from foreign objects that work their way from the tub to the sump.  Uses a motor speed control board.  As long as unit washes and spins then the board should be ok.  Check the sump hose where it connects to the pump.  Usually find enough loot in there to pay for lunch.  The biggest killer of this model is a damaged spinner assy which is part of the inner basket.  With washer empty, open door and push up on the inner basket lip.  If any loose movement spinner is damaged and basket and tub need to be replaced.
