Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a front loader firigdaire. It is around 3rys old. I purchased it at Lowes, and only had a two year service plan. The problem is, I went to go open it to load it, and the handle broke off, not completely, but almost. Now I am afraid to use it, because once the handle comes off completely, I don't know how I am going to open the door?? Help!!

1) Will follow with reason to get hold of company or person who did prior repair.
2) Not familiar with this one.
3) When people more specific then help is a lot easier.
3a) That being said; Hopefully that you have a fix it warranty.
Large home appliances can pay off.
4) My problem was with a Whirlpool top loader. (The newer type with the 4" high impeller.) Machine made noises and had an error code which couldn't be reset. (Powered machine off/on a coupe of times.) Plus the clothes were always soaked and needed to be hand wrung to dry. Couldn't see why as the lid latch prevented opening to watch progress of cycle. (Development of the newer technology.) Had purchased the washer at Lowes. (And for once the extra warranty. A friend's suggestion.) 14 mos. after new the problem occurred. Called Lowes. A repairman came out and being as he had had repetitive faults he went under the machine and tightened the motor's hub nut which was lock washered. 5 days later the problem re-occurred. Called Lowes. They sent a different repair tech next day. This one did the same repair but added a substance (Loc Tite) before he tightened the nut. Loc Tite goes on as a paste or gel then semi hardens to form a lock washer effect by preventing the nut from backing off. That on top of using a new nut and lockwasher. Repair was done a year ago and is still good.
5) See #1. Call the repair company or tech. Hopefully your repair is less than a year old. Not all repairs or techs are equal!

Drum came loose on Fridgedaire front loader on final spin cycle.


What was the point of posting this on the site?

The drum has broken loose from the support plate at the rear

You need a new drum and a support plate plus probably an outer shell.

A complaint to the manufacturer may get you a deal on a replacement

Trying to figure out Cu. ft. capacity


hi wanda, most top load whirlpool units, they make the sears kenmore models, are around 3.0 cubic feet.
its not that important for a top loader, but when going to a front loader thats how they rate them.
what i would recommend is you buy a unit that will do the laundry that you will need to do for the next 15 years.
what i mean is if you have 2 or more young children, that you will be doing laundry for the next 15 years, then a full size front loader would do you good. size 3.5 c/f or larger, like a whirlpool he4 or he5.
if it is just for 2 people then a smaller unit would be better, like a whirlpool duet or sport model.
the reason for the choice is a front loader needs to be filled up for it to work properly. doing smaller loads in a front loader will cause them to shake and not work as well.
now be ready as the new washers will cost about 1,000 bucks.
another suggestion for 2 people would be the whirlpool cabrio top loader. i like them alot and they have very few parts to fail and have a good reliability.
good luck and happy shopping.
p.s. remember sears will match prices and give you 10% off the best price!!

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Whirlpool Duet Washer (GWH9100LW1) Bangs Loudly during spin


how old iss your washer? do you have an owners manual. because usually there is an extended factory warrenty on the tub and basket. the only thing you would have to pay for would be the labor. Call whirlpool if you do not have a owners manual to find out. the bearing is compressed in the tub. does it sound like an airplain taking off in your house that's usually it.

Mildew smell coming out of washing & black marks on rubber lining


Hello,Not sure I can solve this but according to repair services ,HC or HE washers especially front loaders need to have the tub cleaned once a month ( at least) with bleach or a product that can be purchased at Lowes or any other appliance store. Your problem according to those I have spoken with is Mold in the system. We have bleached ours and used two of these pellets and still are having a problem. I was told that since it is the first time in a year of having this machine that it will take some more cleanings. Hope this helps. By the way we have a Frigidaire front loader.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place. remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...

Dear grahamconnor,
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!
If the machine is 10 years old or more buy a new one!!
Look at speed Queen washers1 They are commercial and have the best warranty in the industry!
use the least water and wash 8 loads a week for 25 years or more! They start at about $549 for the top loader and 1299 for the front loader, BUT the front loader uses ONLY 13.9 GALLONS OF WATER!
The last washer i will buy! And everyone working in my applaince store has one!

If you decide on service!
Here is a good service that I recommend to my customers,
in our 65 year old appliance business!

A&E Factory Service
1-800-905-9505 -(IN U.S.A.)
They are open to make appointments 7days/24hours
