Re: fixing a washer

I would almost bet your timer motor is bad. You will have to replace the timer which is not really a hard thing to do if you have some minor skills. I'm not sure but the timer probably costs around $100 bucks or so. Just guessing on that. Incidentally, the timer is the gizmo behing the knob you are turning to change the cycles.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery 13 cycle commercial HD super capacity washer and it will not change cycles automatically. Is this something I can fix myself?

Yes, you can fix this yourself very easy. You will need to replace the "timer". Here is the part you need to order. To install the timer, you will need to remove the back cover on the control panel and gain access to the timer. Then remove the knob from the timer and release the tab holding the timer in place. Slide the old timer out of the unit once the tab is released and unplug the wires going to it. Re-install with the new timer in reverse order.

Keep me posted!

Washer when set turns on and fills and agitates. But will not move to next cycle automatically. I can manually move the dial to rinse / spin and it works properly. But again won't move to final spin...

From the way you discribe it, sounds like you have a bad timer.If you decide to fix it yourself be sure to mark the wires before removing the timer.

HE3 front-loading automatic washer

Sounds like the water valve is not turning off 100%. Replace the inlet water valve. (where the hoses connect onto the machine)

Rinse cycle temperature

You may have a problem with your Temp Switch or the Sensor Thermistor.  Very easy to check and fix depending on your technical ability.  Both of these parts are connected off the Automatic Temperature Control Board.
