    I am having the same problem with this frigidaire front load washer. Does anyone have a link to pics that show exactly how to fix the problem? Thanks!

    See if the plastic latch on the door is intact? There is also a microswitch that the door latch contacts to allow the washer to work. You can buy the plastic door latch for about $10 bucks and replace it with 2 screws. The microswitch is more involved. Start with the plastic door latch. Give it a good visual inspection and see if a piece appears broken off.

    You may need help on the switch.

    If you need parts there are some good ones online that show parts breakdown illustrations and you should have it in a couple of days. You can also get a part number online and call a local appliance parts place. Its a pretty common part.

    Good luck.

Washes clothes but won't spin it dry


First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the bottom of the unit, after this test the door lock-switch assembly. If the door lock-switch is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

How to operate the washing machines front load washer brandt bf850

  • Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.

  • Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
  • Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
  • Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
  • Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
  • Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.

  • Please rate this solution. Regards.

    Hotpoint WMA33 washer - door won't open

    Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.

    GE Front Loader Washer - Not washing

    It sound like a lid switch issue. If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look that the switch is not broken or loose. If all is fine, you should replace the switch. Good luck!
