The control knob simply pulls off. I just looked at the other side of one..The knob connects to the main control board. To gain access you must remove the top of the washer. There will be screws at the rear of the machine to remove the top. Once removed, the control panel will be exposed for easy removal. Good Luck, Eric

    Hi Eric, I have the same washer with the dial dysfunction issue. I have removed the main control board and it appears to replace the "actual" dial(not the plastic knob) that I have to replace the entire control board ...cost:around $200. Is there no other way?

My Frigidaire front loader washer drum will not turn or agitate but will fill water and drain water, what is the problem?


Hello acoach194 - If the washer is not agitating try the following steps:


1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped

2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-

If the washer starts spinning, then the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this. If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, then it will need to be replaced. If it is loose, then it will need to be tightened. A professional will need to do so by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, once again call a pro.

3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.

4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.

Frigidaire front loading washer drainage


Hello - Is the washer draining or not draining? If it is not, this particular issue could be caused by a variety of reason. I would suggest trying the following steps:


1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped

2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-

If the washer starts spinning, then that means the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.

If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it.

I am having the same problem.
Did you find a solution.
Our washer is just a little over 2 years old and I am trying to decide if I should just cut my losses and never buy a GE product ever again.

Ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.


Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

Most modern front loading machines have a ESTIMATED time display, this time can change based on the inputs from different sensors and water temperature. So this should be normal.
