Frigidaire front loader, less than 2yrs old. Sorry, don't have model #
It sounds like a bead chain (picture what you wear dogtags with) being
dragged across the stainless steel drum....except that you can't find
it anywhere and neither my wife nor I wear jewelry other than rings. To
me it sounds like it's caught between the stainless drum and the
plastic drum - but I've used a flashlight to look through the small
holes in the stainless drum and I couldn't find anything - anyone ever
had this problem?
If the drum spins out, it gets a little louder, and you can hear it if
you spin the drum by hand when the machine is off....it doesn't sound
like a bearing at all. The drain is clear. It does not appear to have
hamper the machine's function at all - we continue to do loads of
laundry, but the noise is irritating. Repair shop said if I bring it
in they would separate the 2 drums and dig it out and replace the seal
for about $200.....
