Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
Washer fills with water then drains:
The critical question is. Is the water is just running down the drain but the pump isn't running. If it is being pumped out, and you can hear the pump running just the same as when it's emptying prior to spin then it could be aborting the wash because it is, or it thinks it's overheating. ( due to defective water temperature switch)
If water isn't being pumped out, but just draining away all the time, the washer will keep detecting there isn't enough water inside and top up with more. Modern washing machines should be sophisticated enough to realize something's wrong and abort with an error, but if not, it may continue washing or rinsing for a short while before losing enough water to trigger more coming in again. It can get stuck on this cycle indefinitely and it's called siphoning.
Siphoning occurs when the end of the drain hose is lower than the level of the water inside the washing machine. Try raising the hose and see what happens.
Also the drain hose should have some type of air gap where it fits into the stand pipe. It should not have an air tight fit.
Other switch's to check would be the water inlet valve and the water pressure switch with a multi meter for continuity or OHMS.

The water level sensor is faulty. After the inlet valve is opened the program controller needs the signal fromt he water level sensor. Thi is normally a pressure switch and as the water builds up the tub through a small opening the water flows through a tube to trigger the switch. So find out the pressure switch and replace. Only once the sensor clicks will the program proceed to wash . Otherwise you can spin becasue the water level sensor need not work for spinning as the level is down.
