Frigidaire Front Load Washer FTF1240FS0 spins slowly
« on: April 03, 2013, 03:49:06 AM »
This is a 5-year-old washer and dryer combo. It had very strange sounds first, and then it stopped to move at the end of a spin cycle. I opened and found out that the belt came off. I put back the belt and turned it manually. The belt moved towards the tub shell. Then I started the washer. It seems to be working but with small screeching sounds. When it came to the spin cycle, it didn't spin fast like usual, and only spins slowly.

Could it be the problem of the belt or the drive pulley? Or anything more serious? I hope it is simple enough to fix. Please help.

The tub bearings are shot.  Frigidaire doesn't sell the bearings, only the whole tub, 131525500. Not worth replacing the tub, in my opinion. You can order a tub seal from here. You can also order bearings from there, but you can find them cheaper elsewhere.  Your tub uses 6307 and 6306 bearings.

Thank you so much for your help. I hope I can find the parts in Canada. Though it seems to be complicated fixing it, I will try my best as I don't want to spend so much money.

:thanks:
