Frigidaire Washer Drier Combo front loader

18 April 2013 - 12:22 AM

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
