Question about Frigidaire FEX831F Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Washer will not start

Evenin folks, I've got a stackable frigidaire washer center - FEX831FS2 - that will not start a cycle. A while back we had some freezing temperatures. I tried to start a cycle and got a low hum but no response from the valve. Figuring the pipes were frozen, I left it at that. My roommmate, however, tried to start a cycle and repeatedly pulled the timer in and out attempting to start a cycle. When I returned home and confirmed the pipes were thawed, I tried to start another cycle. No water, but also no low hum this time. So on to my question... folks who may have seen this a few more times than I have - did we burn out the timer or the valve? I tried to put a generic valve on it to see what would happen and had no luck, albeit the valve in the machine ( ) has two additional small single wire harnesses on top of the valve instead of the typical two red/white double harnesses you see. The generic valve did not have anything to plug those into. Additionally, if I turn the timer to try and drain/spin/rinse, there is also no response. This leads me to thinking it's the timer. (and yep I checked the fuse. dryer works fine.) Thoughts?

The valve is the best place to start looking, you should get a meter to measure voltage and ohms. There is nol guarantee that the valve you used is the right wattage so it is of no help.

A part called a (wig-wag) its a part that consists of two selonoids, one is bad. It switches the transmission from the wash cycle to the spin cycle,at the same time it opens the pump for draining.

When in doubt check the easiest thing to check. The pump can cause a number of errors to come up. Since the unit stopped in rinse I would start but checking to make sure there is nothing obstructing the pump before going to the expensive parts.

E20 means clogged drain pump, slow drain . What you need to do is to remove the screws on the back that holds down the top panel and slide it back to remove then the 5 screws on the Ctr panel and pull that off and then remove the spring around the door seal on the front panel and remove the 4 screws on the bottom of the front panel and then the 2 screws for the Door catch on the front and then the 3 or 4 screws on the top part of the front panel to removed the front panel then underneath you will see a black rubber flexible hose coming off the tub loosen the ring clamp at the top of the hose with a Phillip screwdriver and reach in the hose and grab the filter on clean it out and reinstall and put everything back together and you should be all set

Frigidaire fex831fs2 stackable dryer takes too long to dry and leaves clothes damp

Good Afternoon Famties4,

I understand that the dryer portion of your laundry center, model#FEX831FS2, takes too long to dry, even after making sure the vents are clear. First, I suggest checking the exhaust duct, making sure it is at least 4 inches in diameter and made of rigid or flexible metal. Secondly, make sure the duct has no more than two 90 degree bends and must not exceed length listed in the INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. Lastly, make sure your dryer is connected to a 240 volt circuit. Drying time will be 20% longer than drying on a 240 volt circuit. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your dryer status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-
