Washer is completing all cycles, but water from wash cycle.is left.in washer and clothes are still soaking wet. No water drains out.


check the Lid safety switch, if its shorted the spin cycle won't work, so your left with wet clothes ,, you can jumper the 2 wires together to test the switch , if that makes the cycle work, Replace that switch

Washer spins but won't drain, electrical smell


HI, the smell is coming from the pump housing. the pump impeller may have slipped of the drive stud, in return, jamming itself in side the housing. this will cause the pump to burn out. Check the following before you replace the pump.

1. Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

Frigidare top loading washer 6 cycle - 10 years old


you may want to inspect the bottom part and see if it still uses fan belt. it could be that the belt is loose and the motor is spinning but can not drive the transmission. so the rubber burning smell is coming from the slipping belt.

the solution is to tighten the belt or replace it if necessary.

I am sorry to say that you WILL need a tech to come out and service this unit.  From what you are telling me it is either a dead short in the motor, OR one of the conntections got wet and cause a short.  BUT I would put my money on the motor, since this is a direct drive unit.  Sorry

The transmission might have locked up causing the motor to overheat.
