Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines
When washing large loads in wash cycle it appears as though the water is being spun up and over the top of the drum is this a problem with the transmission it is a frigidaire model fwx883as2
Actually there are three fairly common causes for this:
The machine may not be properly leveled, and will go out of balance when spinning, no matter how carefully you load it. The drum tilts to one side and sloshes over the gasket at the top.
The pump might be blocked up badly, causing the water to not drain adequately, which can cause the water to be forced upward and out due to the building centrifugal force. These machines are designed to drain as they spin at a fairly steady rate. If something interferes with the draining, but doesn't slow the spin down, this can result.
Finally, the maximum water level switch (sometimes also called an overflow prevention switch, among other names depending on manufacturer) may be faulty. Normally your water level is controlled by the load size selector. However, on some machines the maximum load size setting is actually limited only by the overflow prevention switch. If yours is one of those, this could explain your problem.
