Resolved Question:

I bought a used(7 yr) Frig Gallery washing machine(front loader). When I spin the drum(no water) by hand it squeeks and thumps(it turns easily). Is there anything between the inner and outer drums? I assume the inner drum turns on a watertight bearing mounted in the center of the outer drum. Can an object get between the drums? If I have to pull it apart, does the whole drum assembly have to be pulled out thru the back?

Hi, Thank you for using justanswer for your appliance questions!


Most likely the bearing or the tub support that fastens the shaft to the inner tub may have deteriorated or is worn.
The drum assm comes out the front of the machine.

Here is a shop manual for your model. Hope this helps!

you may need to change what type of file it is. Thats out of my expertise! I can fix any appliance and make a mean bag of microwave popcorn, but computers and files i struggle!
