    The error code originally was F22. I got the door open as explained above, from inside but the washer won't run a cycle now. It just beeps when I press and hold the start button on any cycle.

There is somthing in your drain pump or your drain pump is bad or both, take the three screws from the front bottom panel and in the middle you will the pump housing round and plastic you can take the cap out and it has a trap in it . get some towels ready and under pump then take out slowly make sure there is nothing inside housing if so remove it then put cap back in and start drain spin if pump sounds better then put into wash then into drain and spin to check it out to unlock the door you can do so by putting your hand up the right side behind the front panel and feel the door lock from the back unplug unit from wall of course you will feel a round flat peice of plastic at bottom of lock pull down on it and will unlock door after clearing pump and unlocking door try unit out if still acting up replace drain pump part#280187 about $120

SOURCE: the washer does not spin during washing cycle or drain & spin cyc

I can a very simple part called the motor coupler...you can find the part at www.repairclinic.com. It costs 13.95. I am fixing my washing machine today, as this happened before and was the answer. Goodluck

SOURCE: Washer drains but will not spin

Does it agitate and run through the cycles? What mod.number? It may be the motor drive coupler. If it is a direct drive. The transmissions are usually not the prob. The couplers are. They are fairly easy to change. from undrneath you can remove the water pump by prying off the retaining strapps (2). Pull the pump off. Remove the screws retaining the straps (2) holding the motor and pry them off. Pull the motor off and the cooupler consists of 3 parts. 2 (usually) plastic and one rubber. The plastic may be broken or the rubber may be worn out. You can usually tell. The plastic parts also crack around the shafts and slip. They are avalible online for about $14. Usually changed in less than an hour. Trying to help but I have limited info here.

How do I get washing machine door to unlock?


The error F26 does indicate a fault in the door switch circuit. See the image below for a complete listing of what can cause this error. There is a door unlock error that would display if the door is not locking or unlocking but the F26 means the control is not seeing the door switch open and close. One thing to try first before scheduling service or replacing the part is to check the connections on the door switch.
Unplug the washer first and remove the lower access panel and reach up to the door lock and try to feel for the connections and make sure they're tight.

What is f-22

Error code f-28


F28 means your washer is locked and not unlocking. To unlock your washer take off the bottom access panel by removing the 3 bottom screws. Reach up near the latching assembly & attached to the door latch is a little plastic pull lever. Pull down on this lever and open the door. Unplug your washer for 60 seconds and plug your washer back in. If the error re-occurs you need to replace your door lock.

Frigidaire frfw3700lw0 drains but not spinning


Hello ctilton2001 - This particular issue can be caused by quite a few reasons. Washer could be experiencing a communication error from the main control board, faulty door lock assembly or the timer itself is not operating correctly. Did you notice a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned or could possibly have another issue with the door lock assembly. You can also press and hold the start/pause and cancel button together at the same time for approximately 30 seconds to display an error code on the LED. What error code does it display? However, I would suggest contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the washer.

Error Code OE and Door will not unlock


error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.try running the spin cycle alone till the water empties completely.If the problem still continues it means that the pump is clogged where you cant reach, since you've tested with the drain hose.

I get an error code: F dU and my washer won't drain properly


I too, had the same issue with the door not opening. My solution was to unplug the power cord and then plug it back in and press the green button's as if to start a cycle and while it starts putting water into the washer I put my knee and weight into the door lock area and held pressure from my knee and press the red stop button until the lights went out, and I took my knee off the door lock area and opened the door!!! No taking off the lower panel.
If this works for you too please email me email4millers@cinci.rr.com.
