Wont spin


Good Morning Anthony,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer, model# FWFB9100ES0 not spinning. There are a couple things I would do. First check the dispenser drawer and make sure it is closed. This can hinder the appliance from spinning the clothes out. Another thing to check would be that the load isn't too small. If it's a small load it can become unbalanced. Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load. If these suggestions do not work, you can always try resetting the washer by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When you restore power try the cycle again. If you are still having trouble, I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician. I hope this has helped.

-Best Regards-

My washing machine wont spin with clothes in it


Hi, you will find either the drive belt has stretched slightly so when the unit is under a load the motor pulley slips on the belt. The belt should have some sort of tensioning or you would need it replaced.

The other reason it will not spin is if the motor brushes are worn and need replacing.

Hope this helps.

Wont finish a small load. Gets to 4 minutes and


With a small load, the machine will have a difficult, if not impossible job of balancing the load. A bigger load will help. Another thing you can do is to use a low spin speed. If you wish to spin it out faster, just turn the machine back on after it has finished a cycle on the low spin speed and just push the spin speed button without selecting a cycle. You can touch the spin speed button until it shows the next higher spin speed, then push the start button and the machine will not fill with any water, it will just pump and spin. (about 14 minutes) This generally works, because you have spun most of the water out at a lower spin speed, and now the washer is able to reach the next higher spin speed as the load is not as unbalanced as it was before the low speed spin.

My washer says E20 and wont spin. Any suggestions on what to do to try to fix it?


I think I had same problem.. It was because my load was very unbalanced.. I had a hevy item with a few small items inside..
These front load washers have sensors for the weight balance.. If it is to heavy in one spot - it wont spin...

Won't spin


Jessi, you need to call for factory service so you wont void the warranty. A couple of things could be going on here. The filter before the drain pump could be clogged with stuff preventing a high spin. Pressure switch wont allow a high spin if it detects water in the tub. The main control and motor control talk to each other and controls the spin. There could be a loose harness or poor connection at one of the boards. I would call for service, it won't cost you a cent...Catriver..post back.
