I'm guessing that your belt my have been misaligned, which means, no problem!
But, I recently had a machine that had a motor that would not turn, only hummed. I vacuumed the lint, then blew the lint out of the motor with a compressor, and vacuumed again. It still needed a push start to get the motor turning, but it starts on its own, now. So, if you have a lot of lint buildup, it can eventually stop the motor
Unfortunately your motor is bad. Replacing the motor is a bit involved, but if you want to attempt it I can walk you through it. There should be a 5 YEARS warranty on the motor, so you might consider a repairman. Make sure they are GE certified and there will be no cost to you for the motor. The labor, however, may be up to you and could be expensive. I'm willing to assist you on doing it yourself, if you'd like. The switch your talking about is a centrifugal switch inside the motor. Once the motor turns to a specific RPM, it makes and keeps the motor going until the timer turns it off or the door is opened. But it is the motor itself which starts the spinning. But the motor is not doing it's job so the C switch doesn't come into play. Best, G
check the drive couple it connects the motor to the transmission have some one hold the machine up feel with your finger the roud rubber disc between the motor and the transmission make sure the machine is unpluged whenu do this you can aslo remove the motor for a better visual inspection of the area part sells for around 14.00 hope this helps
check for a motor start capacitor on the side of the drum motor,some use a start cap,if not then either the start relay on the end of the motor where the wires are is bad or the motor bearings are dried out and the motor is locked-up,usually this will trip the circuit breaker though,remove the drum belt and see how easily and how long the motor shaft rotates when spun by hand it should coast to a stop
Same problem here with same make/model. I am not an expert "washing-machine-guru", but I do have a fair level of technical knowledge. Well, when I inspected my washer looking for the problem I found that the rubber hose used to move water from the drum to the extraction water pump is broken. The water escaping the hose is spilling over the electric motor, motor belt, drum brake and water extraction pump. I removed the hose and inspected it looking for the reason it broke. All I can say is that I think that the material (rubber) used is not top quality. Apparently the cause of the failure is age. Maybe the chemicals running thru it may have debilitate the hose to the point of failure. The drum brake is not operating normal, retaining the drum from spinning when it should be. Also the motor belt have stretched a little bit, maybe because of the water spill. If your Frigidaire FWL22SA is leaking water when the drum is being filled you better refrain from using and inspect the hose. I buy the hose (original spare/repair part) for only $3.99 and installed myself. That is far cheaper vs buying a new washer. Good luck.
From your description I would suspect a broken belt although I am unfamiliar with your model. Once the belt [which transfers drive from the motor to the drum] breaks, it would'nt matter how well the motor runs, it can't turn the drum.
Hope this helps!
your drum shaft is broken this is making the pulley wobble causing the belt to come off and it will also explain the noise. This is a very expensive job sometimes requiring the complete tub to be changed might be time for a new machine
