fwt449gfs1 Front Load Washer Works, but noisy during pump out
« on: December 17, 2011, 01:07:32 PM »
Our washer (frigidaire fwt449gfs1) works fine (so far) but when the water gets pumped out it makes a lot more noise then it use to.

Does this mean the bearings are going out?

Going to order one and get it changed before it goes out all together.
Is it easy to replace? Thanks for the part number.  O0

should be 2 screws @ the front bottom kick panel, should be able to see it, make sure you put some towels down before pulling hoses off pump.
