Plastic Mountings Let Loose - Hole in back of washer

My Frigidaire Washer GLTF1670AS was purchased on July 14, 2002. IIt lasted a little over 6 years. It developed a squeal so we bought a new belt. When we went to install the new belt, we found the machine was leaking because the plastic mounting bolts had broken and there was a hole in the back of the machine in the approximate size of a fist. This machine was never abused - it was used for the needs of a husband and wife - maybe four loads a week. We understand there have been many problems with the front loading Frigidaire washers. One doesn't expect a machine with such limited use to have to be trashed but it is apparent it can't be fixed. Guess your design engineers goofed on this model.

Ran one load of laundry in washer, started another and the unit just beeps 3times and I push to reset but lid won't lock or start cycle. I tried moving dials to wake up machine but got no luck

My GE top loader has a little "finger" on the lid , when lid is closed it depress a switch inside a little hole , Now YOU with a wood pencil you turn machine on and press the little switch inside the hole, it may have dropped too low for the "plunger". the washer should start. now tighten the screws for that switch.

Thank you for your post, Tom Lau!

I see that you are having a difficult time with your Frigidaire washer, FAFS4474LW, taking long a time to complete a cycle and not rinsing the clothes out enough. This could be a possible problem with your sensor or control panel on your washer. You may want to perform a reset on your washer to help clear out any miscommunication within the washer. In order to perform a reset you would need to flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to have issues with your washer after the reset I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

I have a frigidaire dishwasher 4000 series aqua surge with speed clean. The small spray arm on the ceiling of the washer came off. I found it sitting on top of some cups in the top basket. There is a...

The top arm snaps into place. Simply unscrew the retaining clip from the ceiling of the washer. Inside of there, you will find a small white plastic clip. Make sure the two prongs are pointed down and poking out through the hole in the bottom of the larger grey clip that you just unscrewed. Then press the prongs on the white clip into the hole on the arm and snap it back together. Then you can screw the assembly back into the ceiling of the washer.

If this problem persists, you will likely need to replace the white plastic clip. (which is where I am at right now with my washer).

Have to change cycle manually

Reason? There shouldn't be one. Seems you're extraordinarily unlucky with timers. Mine's 10yo, never broke. The timer is a standalone part, it's not dependent on any other parts for its longevity. So there can't be any other parts in the washer 'killing' it.

Are you handling it gently? Turn it slowly when setting, don't whip it around.
