My frigidaire front load washer starts...then quits...
I start a load of wash..it fills and the dial will advance, but then it quits, usually about half way through the cycle. Sometimes it doesn't even make it half way. The power light stays on, but the dial won't advance. The washer was doing the same thing about a year ago (when we had only owned it for a few months and it was still under warranty) and the repairman replaced the timer. Now it is doing the same thing...of course now I believe it is out of warranty. Could this be the timer again...and if so, what would cause it to fail again so soon? If you do think it is the timer, is this something we could replace ourselves? (We have the old part with the box and part number) Any help will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

Yes it could be but also it could more than likely be your pump not letting water out or not letting enough water out which stops the cycle try doing aload when it stops turn dial to empty and if it spins then your pump is faulty needs replcing thats the more common fault

Hello there: If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:It's
the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins
agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin
cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It
may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with
water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse
water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
To javed_iqb904, does the drum actually fill or does it seem like that water is draining out as it's filling?
To neonllama19, if it fills with the tap on and the machine off, it sounds like a defective water valve. If it never stopped filling it sounds like a defective pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch is loose or diconnected.
