Probably the lid switch. Try disconnecting it from the harness and use a jumper ( be careful not to ground it against the cabinet ) on the harness.

SOURCE: excessive vibration and movement during spin cycle

mostly its faulty motor problem or drain problem. It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump 
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. 

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. 

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

SOURCE: drain problem for FEx831CSO

Unfortunately, I can't think of any reason other than a clog or broken impeller in the pump. Either way you would have to take the front off the machine to check.

There should be a pump right in front of the machine when you get that panel off, then have someplace for the water to go when you remove the hoses. If there is a clog, it would be right there more than likely due to the size of the machine and location of the pump. Look inside and see if there is a sock or small garment inside. If you don't see anything there, see if the rubber impeller is intact. If both of these things aren't the cause. there could be a clog farther down the hoses.

Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: Frigidaire was tub makes loud thump noise during spin cycle....

Need more information to make an accurate diagnosis, try removing the front panel (two screws at bottom) and visually check first the belt (all the way around) and then the springs that hold the tub suspended.
I would bet on the belt.

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire stack

Hello,
In a packet on the back side of the diagonal panel between the washer top and control panel,is the wiring diagram. It will show you where the wires come from to power the pump. I am not absoluty sure but believe its directly from the timer to the pump. So find what wire is the hot one and check continuty on it from the timer to the pump,and the neutral wire check that for continuty as well. The hot wire is exclusive for the pump circuit,the neutral wire ties into all neutral wires so continuty can be checked on it from any neutral wire to the neutral for the pump.If continuty on both wires,Replace the timer. The washer timer part number is 131758600 it could be picked up from your local appliance parts store,or online at;

I have a stackable washer and dryer from Frigidaire model# FEX831CSO. The washer will not agitate or spin but will drain. What might be the problem?


Good Afternoon Sarah, thanks for your post!

From the information you have provided the washer on your Frigidaire laundry center will not agitate or spin and will drain. This sounds like a possible issue with your motor or belt. In order to pinpoint the issue with your washer you may need to disassemble the washer and test each component for electrical issues and cosmetic damage. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend you speak with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

My model GLET1041AS2 Frigidaire Laundry Center fills/agitates, but does not pump or spin. The timer would make a slight buzzing/timer sound when it hits the spin cycle, but nothing else.


The circuit board has a Cycle generator and sequencer that accepts commands when you manually do a setting. When the sequence enters the spin phase a block occurs and discontinues further action. It is not the timer, but the command center on the circuit board. Because the board has many functions, it is like a set of Christmas Tree lights in series, and when one bulb fails, so goes the set. You will no doubt need a new command board for that model.

We have a whirlpool LSR7233EZO. When I set the dial where it should fill with water no water runs in but the agitator runs. This happens on any of the load choices. From what I've been able to find out I...


Your problem sounds like a faulty water level switch,not your fill valve. With the machine empty at the beginning of your cycles, the switch should internally be in the "empty" position to energize your fill valve solenoid(s), then when the machine completes the filling to the level selected on your water level knob, the level switch repositions to the "full" position to energize your timer to advance the cycle. If the switch is stuck in the "full" position all the time, as soon as you pull your timer knob out to start any cycle, the machine already thinks it has filled to the desired level, and immediately energizes your timer to advance to the wash step and begin agitation, even though the tub is dry. I will refer you to the following link for a video showing you the fill/switch replacement procedure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIs9gX0YjxI&feature=related

I hope I've addressed your problem as described

Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter
