I would suspect a faulty motor control board. not much you can do to test it unfortunately, aside to replacing it and see if that fixes the problem, but definitely the best guess. Also known as a speed board.

It sounds like the rubber door bellow is leaking. You may have a loose clamp that secures it to the drum, which could have happened during shipping. Or, you may have a small rip or tear in the bellow, leaking drain hose(s), or drain pump. In any case, if you just purchased this washer, the washer comes with a one year limited warranty and should be repaired at no cost to you. I would not recommend trying to disassemble anything as this will void any existing warranty you may have. I would recommend you contact the dealership in which you purchased the appliance from or find a reputable appliance repair company. Sears repairs all major brands regardless or whether or not you purchased it from. If you cannot find your purchase receipt, the validity of your warranty will be determined by the date of manufacture on your appliance (which is the SERIAL NUMBER). I hope you find this information encouraging and helpful.

The pump may have an obstruction in it. It could be a coin or anything of that nature. The pump is located on the bottom front of the machine. If you have a removable panel on the front lower of the machine, remove that. There should be 2 screws to remove. There will be 2 hoses connected to the pump. Remove the hoses. (IMPORTANT...have a bowl or pan to catch the water otherwise it will go all over the floor...) There will be 2 screws holding the pump on. Before you remove the pump, turn the washer on so it will try to drain. See if the pump turns on. You will be able to hear if it is obstructed. After that remove the pump and look inside to see if anything is inside(ie.. coins ect.) If so remove them then repeat the process in reverse to get it back together.

pump blockage, or drain pipe blocked.

The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:

Now remove the two screws on the front lower panel and pull the panel
in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take a piece of water hose with one end cut off and run it down the pump to drain end of the drain and reassemble the unit

drum bearing failure due to the water seal in front of the bearings failing the smell is probably the grease mixed with water in the outer tub

I've read in a product review that Frigidaire put out a service bulletin regarding the electronic timer circuit board in these machines. Apparently enough of these boards failed to prompt a factory response. With this in mind, you should call an appliance repair center and ask them if they're aware of this Factory Service Bulletin. In many cases like this, where a part is manufactured defective, the repair could be free to you.

The drum is driven by a belt attached to the motor. In order for the drum to turn freely, it is SUPPORTED by a rollers. One of these rolers may be broken (cracked or split) so the drum is not equally supportedon all sides.

If you open the machine up - you'll see it. Depending on the particular brand sometimes there a set 0of rollers in the front AND back, sometimes just the front - with the back supported by a central pivot.

I hope this helps

Suggestion: 1 Press and hold down 'spin' & 'dry' buttons to unlock controls. 2 Have u overloaded the machine with clothes? Reduce load. 3 Try 'spin' only after putting the clothes. Then put off machine & continue with main cycle. Three suggestions here........ What is the clothes capacity of the machine; try to limit within capacity. Try the "spin only" function aft putting the clothes. Then put the machine off & continue with the main cycle.
