Preventative Maintenance for a 13 year old Frigidaire Gallery front load washer

30 March 2014 - 09:15 PM

Hello Appliance Gurus,

Is there an FAQ or some other guidance document for preventative maintenance on a Frigidaire Gallery FWT449GF front load washing machine? I've had the machine for 13 years and other than a very small tub leak and a golf pencil in the drain pump, it has worked amazingly well. I'd like to keep it that way by doing whatever PM is required on a machine of that type/vintage. Any advice would be most appreciated. Domo!

Frigidaire FWT449GFS1 door boot removal

26 February 2013 - 11:27 PM

Hello Appliantologists,

I wanted to take apart my Frigidaire FWT449GFS1 front load washer but my door boot/bellows is different than what is showing in the service manual (which is not specific to the model) The service manual shows the door boot held in with a spring - mine has no such spring. I was going to try to just peel off the bellows but thought I better check with the experts to see what I need to watch out for when I pry off the bellows. Tips, tricks?

Thanks, as always, for the advice.


Slight tub leak - Frigidaire Gallery front load washer

09 September 2012 - 03:45 PM

My Frigidaire Gallery (FWT449GFS1) front load washer is leaking a bit from the tub. I have seen small drips coming from the area where the tub is joined together. I am wondering whether I should just tighten the crews that appear to hold the tub together (see picture) in that area or will that cause more problems by potentially warping the plastic? What should I try? I don't think the tub is cracked and the leak seems to be most active when the drum is spinning very fast. The unit is about 12 years old and has worked very well to date.

Thanks as always for your assistance.
