    Good Afternoon Friend, I understand that you are putting your Frigidaire washer on the spin cycle and water goes all over the floor. I also see that you want to bypass the safety switch. While I do not recommend bypassing any safety switch, I would please need the model number of your appliance to better assist. Looking forward to hearing from you. WP

SOURCE: Roper washer does not drain

Alicia7q : Faulty water pump or restriction in drain line between tub and outlet hose.

arlenekc,: That metal thing is part of the motor. What you have is a leaking water pump.

badwasher,: Check the lid switch. This machine will not spin or drain if the switch is faulty.

It is possible that the belt has come off or the lid latch is no functioning.

First unplug the machine then remove the two screws from the front lower edge of the washer.

The front panel will lift up towards you at a 45 degree angle. The latches will release than the entire front panel can be place out of the way.

The lid latch can be seen on the underside of the top panel to the right, check that the wires are not loose.

You will see a large motor mounted upright near the base this should have the belt around the pulley to the bottom of the tub assembly. Check for obvious damage

Outside of this you will need a repairman for help.

SOURCE: mle2000ayw Stackable washer/dryer not washing, spinning

If the door lock light is on then is might be the "door lock enable spin switch" the plunger at the opposite end from the wax motor is not fully depressing the switch. In the stackable it is just behing the door lock. Remove the two middle covers (2 white phillips screws and one hex head screw on the middle of lower cover by the wires)to test place a few layers of masking tape on the end of the plunger and cycle the machine. Might also be a weak Wax motor (dark brown in color) to be safe replace both for about $12 each. Fix in 10 - 15 min.

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

My GE stackable washer is pouring out water while filling up, when spinning makes horrible noise and tub goes crazy


The issue is that a shock or spring that balances the tub has come loose and pulled a hose off when it broke. So the shocks or the springs are bad. The hose might be able to just be put back on.

Washer won't spin and empty the water out of the


Shirley, it may be the drain pump is obstructed or possibly the lid switch is broken. If you washed bath mats or rubber backed rugs recently i would go for the pump. If you washed a semi bulky item with a tendency to float I would go for the switch.
Get me a model number and I can help you with dis-assembly if you'd like further help!

Water under stackable washer dryer


The front panel comes off and you will be able to trace the water source. These combo units spin immediatly and if the drain is slow the water will spin up over the edge of the tub during drain.
