Question about Frigidaire 14 Cycle Tumble Action Washer

1 Answer

Automati Washer Spin Cycle

Last night when I went to put clothes from the washer to the dryer, they felt very wet. I found out that the spin cylce was not working at all. Is that an expensive item to repair, or do I need to purchase a new washer???? A friend had told me that to get whites whiter, pour some vinegar into the rinse water. I did that - and then when the batch was done, I found it had not spun the water out. I doubt that the vinegar caused it - but who knows????

    same problem when washer gets to spin cycle it does not work. I took the front off and squeezed the rubber boot and the water cycled out. This problem repeats with me having to continue to do the same action every couple times we use the washer.

    Frigidaire 16 cycle 3 speed washer will not spin during rinse cycle,water drains out but tumbler just sits and makes a grinding noise like the sound of a bad bearing.Ican turn the tumbler freely by hand counter-clockwise but when I try to turn it clockwise it makes a metallic click sound and will not move.Motor and belt seem to turn freely when moved by hand both directions.A buddy told me it was the timer,any help would be appreciated.

Never heard the vinegar in the rince water thing but who knows! do you know if the washer drum is working in the wash cycle? as you know it should tumble in both directions. if you ca check that it would be a big help to know if the motor is working. it could be something as simple as the belt broke. so get back to me with the answer and we can go from there. thanks

Clothes are still wet after last spin cylce


Most washing machines do not dry the clothes completely. Make sure that your clothes are evenly spaced & the weight is balanced to get the best spin speed. When the cycle is complete, you will need to put the clothes into a dryer or hang them up to get them completely dry.

Wont spin


Yes you will find a belt under the bottom of the machine. Check out first that it did not just over balance and cut out while spinning if so you will need to hit the reset buttonand check out spin cycle. Hope this helps

Clothes are to wet after spin cycle


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Mildew/Stagnant water smell in washer


you know, this does happen.

run it on a full cycle, warm, with either of these in solution.

baking soda, at 1/10 concentration

non chlorine bleach, at 1/6 concentration

you most likely need to do this more than once, until your nose is happy.

Also, consider doing this at least once every 200 wash cycles.

essential oils have same effect, and do a nice anti microbial as well.

we did this in commercial laundries all the time, as part of standard health code compliance issues.

WILL NOT SPIN ON HIGH


The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub (plug off the wall first before doing all these things). Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground
