I have a Frigidaire washing machine that is making quite a bit of a knocking noise during the spin cycle. The transmission has gone out once before and it was covered under warranty. I'm thinking that it is having the same problem again. Is this something that I could repair myself for less than the cost of a new machine ($350 to $400)? I really don't want to spend the money for a new machine.

Are the legs adjusted properly?

If you'd quit cleaning brass in it you wouldn't have this problem... At least set it on delicate.

Anybody "riding" it during the spin cycle?

Mine makes a funny noise too... sort of like BBs rolling around in the very bottom of the tub. It showed up a day or so after my son's pinewood derby. You don't suppose that some of the weights from his car.................. [homer mode][size=6]d'oh![/size=6][/homer mode]

I concur with making sure the load is balanced first.

Don't mix rifle and pistol brass. Don't mix casings with red sealed primers and un-mentionables, otherwise the guys at the gym will be snickering about it.

I always make sure the load is balanced. It has run fine for the last 3 years abd just started doing this in the last few months.

Could be the pump.If it is it may leak a little or not.Are the clothes coming out as dry as they use to?A pump will run you under 40.00 at a supply house.If the transmission is going forget it.Stay away from fridiged aire.Its not if they need to be worked on but when.That being said their older stuff is some of the best in the world.I have a 1933 fridge that has neede exactly one thermostat.
