Frigidaire front load washer won't spin, belt looks good, makes noise

I have a frigidaire front load washer. removed part of back cover. can see belt is intact. it fills with water and drains when you rotate knob through cycles, but tub doesn't budge during any of this. Washer motor makes the sound like the motor is running, but no tub movement at all at any time. I can move tub by hand easily moving (drive wheel?) in back behind cover. Also when washer door is open tub rotates freely and easily. Door lock light is one and detergent drawer clicks close. Any ideas?

    I had service come out. The motor controller was bad. This is a part covered under warranty but here's the catch. You have to pay service to come out to diagnose it, cheapest I found was $50. Then they come out again to fix it after you get a reference number from Frigidaire, but you have to pay for labor, which is another $150 or so. Yes, it's cheaper than buying a new machine, but at about 4 years old it shouldn't require repairs.

    Same problem here. Twice I opened the back and moved the wires around inside (can't say wich ones) and it worked again! for a full cicle, but then it would't spin again. I've realy had it with this machine!!!

Don't have much experience on Frigidaire. Is the motor a brush type, capacitor type or one of those new DC types? If it's got brushes and they are ok, then I would say your armature is up the creek. If it's a capacitor type (unlikely) then the capacitor is most likely duff. If it's the new DC type it could be a lot of things, most likely the module which breaksdown and passes an AC component in the motor supply which make the motor tremble but not rotate

How do you get the water to drain in the Malber WD100 washer/dryer combo?

Hi. I''m assuming you are referring to a WD1000.
To initiate the drain cycle: Rotate far right knob CLOCKWISE to Position 4. It may take 30-45 seconds to recognize the knob's new position, but then it will begin an 11 minute Slow Tumble/Pump Out cycle. During this cycle you'll see the internal drum slowly rotate CW for 60 seconds, pause, then rotate CCW for 5 secs - then repeat. All this time the pump will run and you'll hear water running down the drain. When you hear no more water you can rotate same knob to "straight up", and stop the machine. To turn power off, press the rightmost button.

Front load frigidaire washer wont do anything but fill with water and drain and the door wont lock

Hello Cheryl Watson - Not quite sure I understand the issue. If the unit is filling with water and draining immediately, with no tub rotation or movement, more than likely there is a failure with the motor circuit (i.e. the motor, motor control board, belt, wiring or door switch). Consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis and to assist with the repairs.

E 10 code what do u do

I'm assuming your washer is a Kenmore or Frigidaire front loading washer. E10 error code is an indication of a slow fill, took to long to fill, no fill or the fill water could be siphoning out the drain hose as it's filling with water.

Check to make sure that the drain hose is not stuck too far down the stand pipe and causing the water to siphon out. Check the cold and hot water supply to the washer for any restrictions. If you have a slow fill remove the hoses from the washer and check for restricted filter screens in the water inlet valve. Check for any restricted hose screens too.

Front load washer, water enters but the drum will not rotate or turn. when the control is advanced to spin wahser will drain but no spin action.

After removing the back from the washer I discovered that the shock on the left (looking in from the back) is broken. Also looking at the control board there is power on both sides of the fuse and after removing the belt the motor will not turn when control is placed in the wash or spin position.
My issue now is removing and replacing the shock and determining if the motor or the control board is the problem.
I will send an additional message on the solution that I came up with.
