Question about Frigidaire GSTR1670A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My frigidaire front load washer/rear control panel GSTR1670AS0 just started to make a VERY LOAD banging noise. I replaced the belt, but it is still noisy and then got the same banging result during the second spin cycle. I can't tell what the issue is. Please advise. Prior to this issue the machine was extremely quiet.

SOURCE: load noise in final spin cycle

turn the tub on the inside if it feels ruff as it turns and makes a noise then most likely you have a bad rear bearing, if it is smooth in turning and no noise then turn to drain or spin possibly something stuck in drain pump. the drain pump will start up first if you hear the noise then the drain pump is accessed from the front lower cover, if its the rear bearing probably not worth fixing about 400.00 in parts and alot of work.

SOURCE: banging tumbler during spin cycle

Be certain that nothing got under the rubber skirt, pull it back and look /feel under it .
inside the tub are the large wiper arms solid and not come loose.
open the top access panel (3 screws in top rear )
and open the bottom access Panel (3 screws in bottom front)
Dissconnect power .
Look at the springs and arms that attach to the tub are they secure.
is the large stone concreate slabs secure.
move all these items and push at them all secure?
you can run it while open but the bottom has a switch on front right that has to be closed.
look watch listen.

SOURCE: excessive noise

I had the same problem. Two things were bad. One was the shock absorber and must be changed out as a pair. Also one of the springs that supports the tub was broken. My guess is that the spring broke and the shock failed shortly after. since it was more easily accessible and appeared to be the problem, I replaced the broken shock. Only to find the spring was broken too. After replacing the spring, its worked fine for a couple of years. Obviously I'm looking at this site because I'm having another problem, but this time I think it is the tub bearing.

How do I check the belts or springs holding the washer tub


to check the belt or Air shock , its easy to remove the rear access panel , you can have a look for shock and motor & belt but there are a lot of reason for your complaint for doesn't spin out water and noisy when spinning it may be have kinked in the drain hose or the spin start before pumping water out properly leads to load unevenly distributed in the movement of the drum, so i believe that your problem in pumping the water out.

Banging noise comming from back of washer near the belt


I have a GE WHDSR316G1WW top loading washer and the drain hose located on the upper left rear of the plastic outer tub came loose. It sounded like a worn seal or bearing because it was banging so loud. I removed the control panel, top panel and front panel, reattached the drain hose into the housing hole and the problem was solved. Saved $80 service call.

Frigidaire frontload FTF2140ES3 33 month old, final high speed rinse tub bangs violently , you can see its wobbling. load is not off centre or large. First repaiman says its the bearings...WHAT... this...


If the bearing is bad it will likely do one of three things, it can sound like a jet is taking off when your washer is spinning, the rear bearing seal can start leaking, or if it is really bad there will be slop between the basket and tub. Open the door and spin the basket, does it sound like the bearing has gravel in it? Lift on the basket if it has slop between the basket and tub this will for sure cause the banging you are talking about. To verify the leak you will have to pull the rear cover off of the machine and look for grease or water trails running down the rear of the tub. Often times the grease or water will get on the pulley or belt and fling it around the rear of the washer. Hope this helps.

My front load washer is making a loud noise and think it is the motor, i took the front bottom panel off and the sound was coming from the what looks like motor i guess not sure what to do


Remove the rear panel . remove belt . turn drum pully if you hear any noise it is the rear drum bearing and seal . Reach inside drum from front and lift up on inner drum. If this drum moves up and down or side to side you will also need to replace the inner drum. If turning the drum is silent try turning the motor if it makes a noise replace the motor

Miele Novotronic W828 Water Control System Front Load Washer


Hello Ellen, welcome to fixya. I would begin by removing the rear panel and checking the belt and insure the basket pulley isn't loose as well. If the belt is in tack ( not broke ) but has come off that sometimes is caused by a loose or bent pulley, hence the suggestion to check the pulley. If the belt is broke, it may simply be a matter of normal "wear & tear" and just time to replace it. Hope that helps point you in the right direction. Please take a moment and rate this info according to it's helpfulness or let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today and good luck. Macmarkus :)

My Frigidaire frontloader is not spinning until dry. The drum appears to be banging against the interior, making a loud noise.


were the drum support brackets removed after purchase? you may need to open the front access panel and remove two brackets that support the drum during shipping. also at the rear are support screws that need to be removed

Hi, our washing machine started making very loud banging and whining noise in the final spin cycle and the machine was shaking. We have taken off the back. The springs look ok. any suggestions?


Loud banging is usually an unbalanced load. whining noise is some times debris trapped in drain pump causing it to squeal like a fan belt on a car. Strings, threads and hoses tend to get wrapped under agitator and cause noise, too.

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise


2 possible issues with your washer.
1 or both the support shocks or springs have broken
the drum would look off center even when empty

this is a very common problem with the fridgidaire washer... (this kenmore is a frigidaire model)
problem is caused by very hard water (well water) or improper use of detergent. this machine uses a High efficency type detergent, marked by "HE" on the detergent container

Front Loading Washer - Load Banging During Spin Cycle


hello, your problem is that your shocks are bad and need to be replaced. you can access them by removing the front lower panel. make sure you unplug the washer first. you will see 2 of them on either side of the tub. i belive you can twist the upper portion and then remove the bottom screew and remove the shock. of course before you start you should have the new shocks. and make sure their is no water in the tub.
