Question about Frigidaire FWS1339A Top Load Washer
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.
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.

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.

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?

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.
