hen I turn the drum by hand, I feel at one spot that it is touching something metallic.


You have a bad bearing in the tub then, very common problem with Frigidaire washers, it is only going to get louder the more you use it,,, you will need to replace the rear outer tub to repair this problem, not an easy feat to do... There are some places that sell repair kits to replace only the bad bearing and not the complete tub, however I have never used them so I cannot say it is safe to do... you can order the rear out tub at the following blue link, they do ship to Canada...

Thank for info. Washer is 9 years old, should I get it fixed or replace with a new one and which make would be more reliable and recommended?

I would not repair a 9 year old washer, I would go with a Samsung or LG direct drive washing machine, more reliable than anything on the market today...
