Frigidaire washing machine does slow spin/agitate instead of spin

My heavy duty, 9 cycle model#FWX6970EW2 drains fine for spin cycle then goes into a slow spin with agitator working like a wash cycle. This is for all 3 spins cycles on dial. Seems to be doing a wash cycle without water. The wash, rinse and drain sections work fine on all 3 cycles. Is this a simple problem or an indication of something more complex ( and more expensive)? I cant afford to buy a new one right now.

SOURCE: Will fill with water but during rinse and spins it won't drain.

I fixed it on my own. By taking off the suction hose and spinning the fan inside it apparently dislodged something and is working now. Hopefully the problem won't come back, I was unable to find the foreign object.

SOURCE: Whirlpool filling and washing, not draining, rinsing or spinning

Check out your outlet filter, probable it is clogged. Clean this out and refit. Most cases when the drain or spin does not work, it is the filter. This is a suggestion.

SOURCE: wont spin or agitate

Not sure what you mean? if you have normal wash action then it is agitating in the wash cycle.  Otherwise if it doesn't agitate or spin but does fill with water then your motor or motor control board is bad.

Probably a stripped gear in the transmission.

set the load size to small, fill with water.

now after it fills with water do you hear anything? motor noise?

If you hear motor noise, it probably has a broken motor coupler.

if it doesnt do anything I would look at the lid switch and activator, the lid has to close and the switch has to know it closed. did the tab on the lid break off?

SOURCE: won't agitate

Ours did this and it was because the bearings had busted. I called a local repair guy and he told me over the phone just by listening to the sound. Maybe you could do the same. I do know this, if it is your bearings, buy a new washer. It's not worth the repair...trust me.

Washing machine will agitate on spin cycle instead of spinning. All cycles work fine, fill, wash/agitate, drain, fill, rinse, drain, but anytime it should be spinning it is agitating instead. Is it the...


Could be, Try any of the online appliance parts stores, Mfg, model possibly year. There is a possibility depending on age that a "reversing switch" is not working properly or connections from or to it are bad. Or possibly the drive motor is not "accepting" the switch's instruction.

I have a frigidaire washing machine and it spins out just a small amout of water during the cycle, not a lot , have checked the pump and it works, just wondering if it could possibly be the lid lock


It would not agitate if it were the lid lock, just as agitation should stop when you open the lid during cycles. More likely it's something blocking the drain hose. Here is a link to an excellent online repair manual. Click on the picture of the wash machine, then go to chapter 2. Then have a look at Section 2-3.

Frigidaire washing machine gets stuck on cycles


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
