Customer Question
I have a frigidaire...

I have a frigidaire washer model #FAFW4221LBO and it has a vibration with a loud noise when it is spinning.. Can you advise me as to what is wrong?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I purchased it in June 2011. It is a front load Affinity with the model number I listed above.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I know of

Hello, I am sorry nobody has gotten back to you yet.

If you open the door and lift up and down on the inner spin tub, does it move up and down or is it solid?

Customer reply replied 26 days ago
It is solid
Appliance Technician: Rusty S, Home Appliance Technician replied 26 days ago
  1. Does the vibration/noise start as soon as it begins to pump out the water?
  2. Does the noise seem to be coming from the bottom of the machine, in the right front corner?

The noise starts when it spins and it comes from all over

Also, I am finding small pieces of rubber like material and black particles around the rubber ring
Appliance Technician: Rusty S, Home Appliance Technician replied 26 days ago

Are you certain the spin tub is solid when you lift up and down? All symptoms point to a sagging spin tub.

I tried again to move it and it does move around more than I thought it did
Appliance Technician: Rusty S, Home Appliance Technician replied 26 days ago

Ah, okay. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

The tub support is broken and is allowing the drum to move and scrape the rubber door gasket and the outer tub. The inner spin tub and at least one of the outer tub halves will need to be replaced, see number 16, 13 & 22 at the link below. his repair will run about $400-600 in parts if you fix it yourself. If you have it professionally repaired, it will be around $1000. I would not repair this machine.
