SOURCE: Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer won't

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.

SOURCE: The dryer to my Frigidair FEX831CS top Loaded

Could be one of 4 problems:

  1. Worn or loose drum drive belt (Looks like a large fan belt) (New belt cost $8)
  2. The rear bearing(s) is bad and needs replacing (part cost $18)
  3. The front bearing guide(Sleeve) is worn (Part cost 2@$18.00
  4. Possible that the fan is loose from the motor and hitting housing.
All of the above are easy do at home repairs if you re handy. You should be able to get a good idea of what is wrong just by turning the dryer drum by hand. If the problem is the front bearing or guides, you will hear a grinding noise in the front at the top of the door.

SOURCE: we have a frigidaire FEX831CS stacked washer/dryer

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

(If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Replaced the element on dryer and still wont heat but will spin and washer had quit working when old element went out


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the washer and dryer of your Frigidaire laundry center, model# FEX831CS, are both giving you troubles. I suggest resetting your appliance, be either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Im having a problem with my washer it won't work and its flashing loc


Good Afternoon Jesslyn, I am happy to assist you!


I understand your washer is not working and flashing LOC; however, I see that your question is listed under Frigidaire FEX831CS (Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer). This specific laundry center does not have a digital display. May I please have your model number? You can typically locate the serial tag, on the upper front as you open the door.


In the meantime, if you have a front load washer, I suggest pressing OPTIONS and SELECT at the same time and hold for approximately 15 seconds until "LOC" is no longer displayed. I hope this helps!
Thank you - Z.

Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer dryer won't start


Hello - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and start normal cycle. If this proves to be ineffective, then contact a professional to move forward accurately. Possible causes could be a faulty power cord or house wiring, defective control board, thermal limiter or door switch.

My Frigidaire FEX831CS Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer goes through the cycle till it gedts to drain, then nothing... pump out?


Hello trinileigh19 - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose.

Dryer doesnt turn on


Reset the unit at the circuit breaker of your home first. If nothing changes contact a professional. Sounds like the control board and power supply are not communicating correctly.
