Re: Washer leaks and keeps shutting off when it starts to...
it sounds like your washer is not draining before it starts spinning. the machine should not have visable water in it when it starts to spin. make sure there is no water in the machine and that it is draining properly.

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer keeps filling with water then will spin out and shut off. This sounds like an issue with your water valve or control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If that does fix the issue you may want to have a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis. Hopefully this is helpful information. -Matt
It sounds like the pressure dome switch could be out or its in the hose for the dome it could be clogged or hose may be punctured.
To troubleshoot this you will have to access your washer.
Without model number it will be hard but im going to try. If you have an access panel at the bottom in front than take a flathead screwdriver inbetween the access panel and the front panel there are two tab metal that you have to push down to pry the access panel off. If you have a full front panel than at the bottom you need to remove two screws. Once you have the entire front panel off you need to lift up the top on each side there is a usually 3/8 nut holding the top to the sides. Lift up the top and you will see a hose going from a cylinder shape on the side of the outer tub near the bottom. follow the hose up to control counsel. Take hose off the top and check for kinks. Than blow into the hose from the top to make air bubbles in the tub. Its easier if there is some water in the tub. reconnect the hose to your pressure dome. Set top back down dont put front back on yet. try a cycle small load and see if it shuts off. Look for leaks along than hose. If you cant see any leaks and it does not stop. Spin the water out and take hose from bottom where tub is. Start another load on small wait for a few seconds than blow into the hose from bottom to activate the pressure dome. If the washer keeps filling with the pressure dome activated than its your pressure dome switch. If it stops like its suppose to replace pressure dome hose. Any further assistance please feel free to contact me.
are you sure the water valve isn't bad and the washer is filling even after it shut off?try this,after you use it shut off the water supply to see if it doesn't have water in it,the only way the water can leak back in is if the end of the drain hose is in say the sink and the water rises up and the hose is in the water and the hose is lower than the top of the washer then it could siphon back into the washer but check to see if you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer,dirt gets in the valve and it can't close all the way and the washer keeps filling even when it's off.let me know what you find.
The first thing I say is unplug the washer. If the water is stillcoming in,(which it will on a stuck valve) shut off the waterfaucets. If that is not possible shut the water meter off. If you canstop the washer with the timer then I would say instead of a bad valveyou have a plugged water level pressure hose. Look at this diagram:
As you can see the rubber tube from the bottom of the tub allowsair pressure to push against the switch till it shuts down the valveand starts the wash cycle. Remedy this problem: Simply remove the tubefrom the switch and blow it out. Use them lungs!. Get that sand andtrash out of the sump. Reconnect the hose tightly and pump out anystanding water. Then restart the machine. If you have a good tightconnection the machine should start working like normal. No partsneeded!
The first thing to check here is by opening up the top of your washer. Plug off the mains. Check to see the wires are connected to the inlet valve at the point where the water enters your machine, tighten the wires. Then shut off the wall faucet, unscrew the hoses, check the fine mesh at the machine valve entrance, clean out. Refit the hoses carefully without cross threading, open the wall faucet full to check for leaks; advisable to keep faucet fully open. Check to see that there is no leak at the dispenser end of the pipes. You are done now, try the machine (with the top open, caution)
If there is still no water, just change the inlet water valve, you can do it yourself. Try these sites for spares: RepairClinic.com espares.co.uk AppliancePartsPros.com mcminone.com
you commented on hearing water in the machine after the wash , i know that f&p spin bowls have a liquid inside the actual spin bowl system i think it aids in the spin operation of the machine, but if you had something in the drain network then that will stop the machine from emptingout as it all works on a time basis check and see that you are not getting any leaks from the bottom of the machime as your new pump won't last long if it gets wet also if there is water leaking that can be the main seal on the motor shaft failing
