Frigidaire washer problem

I have a frigidaire washer mod#FWX445RSF4 and I think the timer is bad? It will go through the cycles except when it comes to drain and spin ? I have cycled it through several times and no luck but what ive read seems to tell me the timer which the part # is 131436800 . Thank you for any help.

Re: Frigidaire washer problem

We had a similar problem with ours. Front loaders were the "in thing" so we got one as a house warming gift from our in laws. After some years it would do the exact thing you describe. Luckily some parts were still under warranty. The tech changed everything including the mother board, the door, and some other parts -cannot recal. After about 4 or 5 visits he finally gave up and we got Frigidaire to give us a 50% discount on a new one. Once again, after 4 or 5 years the new one has developed an issue with the bearings. When it spins it sounds like we have a jet plane in our laundry room. We are NEVER going to buy a Frigidaire again.

I have a Frigidaire FTF530FS washer with a problem. The Timer gets stuck in between the drain and the spin cycle. It occurs when the timer dial is about 3 o'clock. I replaced the drain pump, the door...

Good Morning kvojik, thanks for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire front load washer is getting stuck between the drain and spin cycle. I noticed that you have replaced many components within your washer and continue to experience this issue. I would not advise to manually advance any part of the washer because this could cause issues within your washer. It could be a potential issue with the motor. At this point you may want to reach out to a technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you to avoid any further part purchases. -Matt

Frigidaire Gallery washer won't produce final high spin

Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, FWT449GFS2 is not entering the final high spin cycle. It is possible that you could have a defective motor or timer. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend you having a professional come out to the home for the repair of your washer. -Matt

check your lid switch. if your lid swith is bad, it will fill and agitate, but will not pump or spin. therefore it will not go into rinse cycle without being able to pump out water. some lid swithes control the agitation also (usually frigidaire and older maytags), but i doubt yours does. you can check the lid switch for continuity while opening and closing the lid with a meter

Frigidaire FTF530F won't advance

Possibly the timer. next time it wont stop filling turn off the washer. if it still fills you have a water valve issue. Hope for the valve. Timers are big bucks.
