I HAVE A FRIGIDAIRE MODEL FWT645RHSO FRONT LOAD WASHER. WHEN IT GOES IN THE SPIN CYCLE THERE IS A VERY LOUD KNOCKING NOISE OTHER THAN THAT THE WASHER WORKS GREAT. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE PROBLEM IS?
if you turn the inner drum by hand do you hear any noise.

NO THERE IS NO NOISE UNTIL THE SPIN CYCLE I DID TAKE ALL THE CLOTHES OUT AND RUN A EMPTY CYCLE NO NOISE PUT ANOTHER LOAD IN AND WHEN IT COMES TO THE SPIN CYCLE THE VERY LOUD KNOCKING NOISE STARTS THEN IT WILL TRY TO JAM I GUESS
sounds as if the rear bearing in the rear 1/2 of the outer tub is going bad.
