SOURCE: I need a diagram on

Disconnect the water, vent duct, and electric connection to gain access to the rear of the machine. Be prepared to catch any water that comes out of the hoses.

On the rear of the dryer, remove the panel that's behind the dryer section (upper panel).

If the belt is intact, make a drawing of the belt's route.

If the belt is broken, remove and discard it.

Slide the new belt onto the drum to approximately where it belongs (lined up with the motor pulley). I think this model might have a groove for the belt where it rides on the drum.

With the slack portion of the belt, squeeze it to make a loop and push it through and onto the tensioner pulley on the bottom of the dryer.

Using the tensioner spring to relax the belt (pull it toward the motor pulley), slip the belt onto the motor pulley.

Check the belt by pulling on it to see if the drum, motor and tensioner are rotating freely (don't pinch your fingers!).

I am not the best at abstract description. I hope this helped.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

SOURCE: frigidaire model fex831fs4 will not drain or spin

My problem was a little different but I want to post this for others that might experience the same.

My Frigidaire Washer/Dryer Stack Combo Model FEX831FS4 was not draining and had a humming/buzzing noise when it got to drain/rinse cycle. This is usually and probably caused by a small sock or thin or small underwear that got sucked out the top and into the drain hose. I have no idea why they did not design this with a rubber flap like most washers to protect from items going up and out but here's how you fix it.

IF your unit is having this issue STOP and don't try runnin drain/rinse cylces anymore or you may damage the water pump and have to buy a new one. I think I damaged mine from trying to drain the water so many times with a sock clogged in there... but so far it is working anyway, just with a buzzing noise.

HERES THE FIX

You need to TAKE OFF the FRONT COVER and REMOVE the ITEMS FROM the HOSE leading to the WATER PUMP. The water pump is on the bottom front left and theres only TWO SCREWS to get off the FRONT COVER of the washer/dryer. They are on the bottom by the feet. Have someone tilt the unit backwards and unscrew them with a phillips head and then pull the front cover down and off. There is a rubber snap pin in the top center of the cover but it will come loose as you pull down.

In order to get at the water pump you do NOT need to pull the washer/dryer out, you can get at everything from the front. However it might be a wise decision to unplug the power since water will be draining everywhere.

First siphon out all the water in the tub, whatever you don't siphon will immediately coming rushing out once you remove the hose from the water pump.


I would UNPLUG the electrical connector on that water pump and tie it up out of the way because even if you siphoned the water there will still be water in the hoses and probably under the washer tub some.

Disconnect the hose that comes from the tub to the water pump. That's where I found a small children's sock clogging the pump. Dry off the water pump plug connector pins if they got wet (where you removed the plug from) and reconnect the electric connector.

We tried many times to run the drain cycle before taking the washer/dryer apart so your water pump might be shot as I think mine is. Now mine always makes a buzzing noise as if it's wore out from being worked with a sock blocking it's inner part. You might need to replace your water pump.

I appreciate your post, Mike!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire washer motor will hum and not start. In order to test each component you would need to have the proper electrical equipment. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper repairs. They will have the necessary equipment needed to complete your repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Good afternoon Jerry, thank you for your post!

I understand that you are attempting to change the heating element inside your Frigidaire laundry center, FEX831FS4. These intricate parts do require precision and patience, therefore when replacing the exchange of electrical components or removing them from your appliance, I always suggest seeking professional assistance. One must be very careful as these replacements can lead to potential harm. -Matt

I have a FEX831FS4 that will not agitate, however, it will drain and spin. Where should I start the diagnosis process?


Start right here:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Washer-dryer-combo-Parts/Model-FEX831CS0/1428/0152000/R0310016/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=



This will give you a good idea of what you are looking at and where it is located as-well-as the expected costs of parts. Keep in mind though eBay is now a great place to get parts. Often for way cheaper than a parts outlet will charge.
It's kind of unusual for a machine to just lose agitation, unless it has a clutch or maybe agitating dogs; however, this unit has neither that i see and i must confess i've never worked on one. It's possible #2 on the transmission diagram is worn. Does the agitator spin? It may turn a little, but should not spin around like there is nothing holding it. If it does it is either the agitator or the part it connects to (# 2) or an associated part. Removing agitators can sometimes be a pain. Warming an agitator up with a hair dryer can make all the difference in the world when something seems stuck.
Good Luck.

Frigidaire dishwasher PLD2855rfc3 not drying.


I personally would contact a professional if the heating element was installed correctly and is pulling power, if the air dry setting is not selected, and you do not have any other error codes.
