frigidaire washer service manual
« on: November 02, 2007, 03:04:52 PM »
Hello! I'm trying to find a service manual for a 10 year old Frigidaire Gallery front load washer model FWT445GES. I think one of the inner drum spiders is broken. Anybody have experience with replacing this?
Thanks!

Hi,

 I have repaired a couple of these. The spider arm is part of the Frigidaire Tub icon

Being its 10 years old and the tub is over $200 I would think twice about repairing this one.

You can see the parts diagram in the attachment.

Have you had any other problems with it over the years or is this the first?

Thanks for your comment - this washer has worked perfectly 'til now. A new one is about $800. At 10 years old, perhaps I'd be better to just replace the whole thing and keep the old one for parts?

I sure would be thinking about buying a new one at this point in time.

With it's age this could just be the start of your problems with the washer.

If it was something under $100 like a pump, valve, etc.. then I would go ahead and repair it, but I sure would be thinking long and hard before putting $200+ into a 10 year old front loader.

Just my thoughts.....

You been happy with the way your frigidaire cleans your cloths?

Thank you for your thoughts, AJ. We'll be buying a new one, and we've been pleased with the cleaning results of the original.

I think so, but do you recommend another? We have a Frigidaire dryer that stacks on top.

For a front load I think the frigidaire is just as good as any other.

After seeing the video about 'why the kenmore washer died', we've changed our minds about buying another machine! That was a dramatic demonstration of galvanic corrosion! Here in the Pacific Northwest, we use sacrificial zincs on aluminum boats and aircraft floats to avoid this. Perhaps Frigidaire/Kenmore should consider the idea.

Does anyone have opinions about Maytag or LG front loaders?

ive done LG warranty, seen alot of problems with the control boars and LE error codes that LG blames on the customers and soap also had numerous complaints of mold and smell from them, you could buy 2 frigidaires for the price of one LG almost and i doubt the LG would go the 10 years you got out of the last friggy

btw all the friggys i see rot have been in houses with water softeners, never see it happen in a house without one, so if you have a softener install washer before it and it shouldn't rot

my friggy has been overloaded by the pre-teen for 5 years now on a bouncy 2nd floor and all i have ever had to do is remove my wives bra wires(repeatedly) i'd buy another even now that i dont do their warranty anymore and i'd have to pay full price  :P
