Question about Frigidaire FGX831C Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

Open Question

Water level appears too low

We just enherited a Frigidaire stacked washer dryer combo. The washer does not appear to fill with water sufficiently. We end up having to add it manually. There is no water level switch, however there is a light/nornal/heavy switch which we have experimented with and seems to make no difference. Is this usually an expensive problem to fix? This is an older washer and we are debating whether to fix or replace. We prefer to fix if not too expensive. Thanks. BTW: the model is a LC-3 or LC8-3.

there will always be water inside he machine(between the tubs, and in the hoses, but no so much to add that much weight so you cant move it, i would look to see of perhaps a levevling leg has hit the floor not allowing you to slide easily.

First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/topwaterinletvideo.html that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Why is water leaking from bottom of double stack fridgidaire washer/dryer combo?


Thank you for your post, friend!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire laundry center is leaking water from the bottom after a day or so. It sounds like you have a slow leak and this could be in your drain line, drain pump, or gasket. I would advise you to review your gasket and drain hose to make sure there is no visible crack or wear that water could be leaking out of. If you do not see any apparent leaks it could be an issue internally and this is not a simply DIY job. You may need to request the assistance of a professional technician for proper disassembly of your laundry center. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

Top load washer will not fill with water. Doesn't matter what setting. Other functions appear to be working but no water.


Check to make sure you have power to the pump...if not, trace it back to the relay that kicks the pump on & see if the relay is energized.

It leaks water after its about half full does it have a hole in the tub?


I doubt if the tub has a hole in it, BUT the increased pressure and weight of the half filled tub could force water past a damaged washer. How did the washer get damaged, probably by the spin bearing starting to fail.

Washer fills up than starts draining while in wash cycle


Hello , here is the fix-your drain hose is placed to low in the drain line in the wall, it can not be placed in water or it will siphon the water out of your washer into the drain pipe and it wont stop until it hits air. try pulling your drain hose up and out of the drain and get a zip tie or cable and tie it to one of the water valves by the drain pipe placing the end of the drain hose about 5-6 inches inside the drain pipe. Let me know if you have any other questions and good luck it will work.

I have a Plain Hotpoint washer,and it keeps filing with water on large load,but will stop on small load.Will continue to fill even with it unplugged, what could it be?


No it will not keep filling when it is unplugged.
The problem is probably due to a sticking water level switch, or a partial blockage in the water level sensing system. \you will probably need to call an engineer.
