    Barnsleymick,
    Thanks for that info. I will of course check the belt first. The belt is attached and does not feel too loose. Is there something else I should check for? The model number is fwt647ghs1. The drum does spin, but only to rinse.

I cannot find any technical data listed on my system for this machine so i have to speak generally, if the motor works at some point then its highly likely to be a timer fault, although on one Zanussi? i did have a motor turning only one way round and that was a module PCB fault, so the cheapest option would be to look at the module first for any marks, before replacing any part of this expense please confirm with a local engineer, some will do a free estimate before doing any of this just confirm you have checked the wires on the pressure switch (round device near top of machine with a thin pipe from it,) did this fault just happen or have you worked on the machine previously?, sorry i can only be general about this machine. hope i have helped you eliminate something at least.

I am a recently retired engineer and based on the info given, you are saying the drum wont go round?, then start with the belt, then the motor carbons, assuming this model doesn't have an induction motor, you didn't quote a model number for me to be sure, if carbons are ok then check the main pcb (module) to see if any thing is burnt or damaged, well thats a start to be going on with, further help if not successful but need more details, model number etc if i have helped rate me please

I have a Frigidaire washer 2003 model no. gitr 1670 aso front loader that will not wash or spin. Everything else works like fill with water and water drains.


Hi friend, thanks for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer is not washing or spinning but everything else is working properly. I would advise you to check over the drain hose, make sure it is not restricted or too far down the drain pipe. If that checks out it could be a possible problem with your motor or control panel. One of those components could need to be replaced and for proper replacement I would recommend assistance from a technician to have a proper diagnosis completed. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

I have a Kenmore Elite washer, model 44092. The machine won't spin and the error code is E20. What is wrong with it?


The machine, based on the error code, is made by Frigidaire for Kenmore. Error code E20 pertains to a slow or no drain problem which can be due to a clogged/kinked drain hose, blocked drain filter/coin trap, or a broken drain pump. The link below provides the detailed troubleshooting procedure of this error code.

Frigidaire washer won't agitate


hi Cinebar.
this is what i found from the internet so not sure if this will be off help to you.
There could be several reasons why your Frigidaire washer will not agitate, including problems with the power supply, the wash cycle or the way in which the appliance was loaded. It is a good idea to try to resolve the problem with your washer yourself first since unnecessary repair call-outs can potentially be expensive if your appliance is outside its warranty period. Troubleshooting your Frigidaire washing machine will take about 15 minutes.
Confirm the water shutoff valves are open. If your Frigidaire washer cannot draw water from the pipes, it will not fill or agitate. The shutoff valves are usually located behind the washing machine where the water pipes meet the wall. Allow the washing machine to cool down for 30 minutes. Frigidaire appliances automatically shut off if the motor starts to overheat. The cool-down period lasts for half an hour if the appliance has not been switched off manually.
Verify that the detergent draw is tightly closed. If the dispenser is left open, the washer will not start or agitate its load. Push the draw so it sits flush with the front of the washing machine.
Ensure that the washing machine door is closed. As with the detergent door, the appliance will not start if the door is left slightly open, to prevent water from spilling onto the floor. Push the door closed until it clicks, and try your load again.
Confirm that your Frigidaire dryer is set to a spin cycle. If your dryer is set to a soak cycle or is currently in the soak portion of a longer cycle, it will not spin or agitate the wash. Make sure the appliance is set to a spin load and try again.
Contact Frigidaire if problems continue. You may be entitled to free service if your washing machine is within its warranty period. See Resources for Frigidaire's contact information.
