Frigidaire Washer/dryer doesn't work?

I have a combo unit and it stopped working. Nothing worked, so I opened the front washer panel. This not the first times it stops working by the way but last time I wiggled the cables going to the water valve and it started working so this why I started here again. I was about to reach for the water valve cables that were in the back right and I got shocked in my head!! I got got my volt meter and checked the inner wall where I touched with my head and sure enought it had 80-120 volts I checked around and same thing seems that there was a cable loose and causing the inside of the washer to have current. I checked all cable and nothing was loose,cut, stripped, or even pitched. I also checked the voltage from the main entrance and it was getting the full 240v. I removed the middle panel with the knobs and checked if the cable from there did not come loose and nothing every thing was fine. So I unplugged the main plug and decided to go back to the water valve connection. I unplugged them and plugged them back in. I then plugged in the main plug tried to turn on the washer and nothing and tried the dryer and nothing. But then I left he washer on and pressed the button for the dryer and the washer started working but only while I was holding the dryer button down. Once I let it go it stops. So I was like at least I'm getting somewhere but I didn't get further than that all cables were properly fitted. Any ideas on what it can be? I'm think a part needs to be replaced at this point just don't know which one maybe I need more troubleshooting.

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

IF there is an E attached to the 45, it is your control board and the control board would need to be replaced. This is per the "Washer Tech Data Sheet"Hope that helps...

SOURCE: Frigidaire washer/dryer combo

For that model you should just be going through the front. There are 2 phillips screws at the bottom of the front panel. After you remove those, you will need to slide the front panel down. (sometimes insreting a large flat head screw driver between the top washer panel and the front washer panel will help ease it off). The pump on this one is one of the easier one's to clean. Use a shop vacume or just bail the water out by hand to remove as much as possible. Follow the large black hose running down from your tub to the white plastic looking peice. That is your pump. The are 2 5/16 screws holding it down. Remove these to make your work easier and cleaner. Also remove the connector/ wires that plug into the side of the pump. Once removed raise your pump up and slide a large, flat container underneath. Squeeze the clamp on the hose and slide it further back up the hose. Now, SLOWLY start working the hose off in a rocking motion. Just a little pressure here. Now as it strats to work off, the rest of the water will start to come out. Drain it a little at a time. Work the hose back on if you have to go empty your container. Once all of the water has been removed, pull the hose the rest of the way off. Do you see anything blocking it? No? Remove the hose coming back out of the pump as well. Still nothing? Try removing the hose that goes between the tub and the pump up by the tub this time. Nothing yet? Try plugging the pump back in and setting it to a spin/ drain cycle. (make sure you are not on the part of the cycle that adds water or there will be a mess) Once you are on the spin/ drain cycle, look into the pump. Is the paddle wheel looking piece inside moving? If it is not, and there are no forign objects in there, it may be time to replace the pump itself.

Washer only start when drier is on.

Hello Reinaldo Rivera - From what you have described the unit seems to either have a communication problem with the control, an issue with the wiring harness or a faulty door switch. Try resetting the unit by flipping the household circuit breaker or unplugging. Wait approximately two minutes and turn on the washer. Select a normal cycle and if issue continues then I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

How do I separate a stacked washer/dryer combo unit?

Tried this before and is a major undertaking. The front angle panel has to be removed before you can access the rear panel, and then all of the electrical connections need to be traced and disconnected. This is a job for a tech and not recommended. I would suggest you measure, and then measure again and find a way to remove it in one piece, maybe even out a window if one is big enough.

I have a frigidaire stackable washer/dryer unit. The washer works well. But, recently, the dryer started making funny noises almost every revolution like something was banging inside at a certain point....

Try to move the drum manually. if unable to run your hand along the front of drum where it meets the front panel....there are two pieces of felt. something has either gotten stuck there or something has gotten stuck in the blower housing.

Turn off buzzers

I had the same problem and the buzzer was one of the worst sounds ive heard. But, I found the buzzer and turned it off for good. Open the front panel and look for a small part in between the 2 main curcuit boxes.I have a Fridgidare stackable combo FLEB8200FSO. On mine this small part is number 144547100. Look for two black wires, one goes to H and the other to C. Disconnect both wires and no more buzzer!! Good Luck
