|First, thanks to everyone who has already posted good information on this nightmare of a washer.
Symptoms: black marks on clothes. occasional splotches.
First hypothesis: dreaded bearing seal failure
Rear Bearing evaluation:
I took off the rear bearing outer seal, cleaned it with solvent and compressed air, and everything was bright and shiny and quiet. I put the washer back together.
Result: There are two bearings, evidentally. I cleaned the outer. The inner is inaccessible unless you open up the whole outer tub. The inner bearing continues to leak grease on the clothes.
Conclusion: Frigidaire/Electrolux sucks. I called cust svc and got the normal reply: After you fork out for a service call, we'll consider giving you a rebate on a new purchase, or prorate the parts cost, you pay for the labor for the repair.
Thanks guys..... Rob
