Question about Frigidaire FFLE2022MW Electric Washer/Dryer Laundry Center With
This washer will not spin. I can rotate the basket counterclockwise by hand. It will agitate. It drains. It will not spin. I have replaced the belt and the problem remains. An odd burning smell occurs if I allow the machine to continue to try to spin. It makes a humming sound as it attempts to spin.
You need to replace the starter cap on the motor this is why it will not turn and the smell is the cap that's not starting the motor it also will hum.

1. Gas valve coilsIgniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.
Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.
2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.
Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).
4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

soulds like the fuse in the unit overloaded, fluff or oter items may have fallen onto the element, or the unit was overloaded, and the belt was slipping on the motor drive pulley. check for rubber drive belt debri. replace damaged items as required.

If the motor turns freely, and just hums instead of running, I would have to say the motor probably went bad. It probably ran hot with all the lint that was on it and it just finally gave out. If this helps any, please rate my answer. Thank you.
