Frigidare Front Loader Won't Spin on Certain Cycles

We can run our washer only on certain cycles....the most used cycle " Normal" will NOT even beep when you turn it to that cycle. We can only put 4-5 pieces of laundry in the washer at a time..(what is the point of even doing laundry for 4 pieces). If we put in too many pieces the water will not drain! It's so frustrating! My husband has cleaned the pump...our washer is only a year old!! NEED HELP!!!

Re: Frigidare Front Loader Won't Spin on Certain Cycles

Part of the problem sounds like you still have a blockage check all hose's to pump....also if drain hose is connected to back of machine check connection there. common for lint or objects in these areas. most common coins get lodged there and act like a valve. Not sure bout your cycle selection...check your options are set correctly?

Maytag Neptune MAH-1 front load washer won't spin in some cycles I use often. it spins at the end of the cycle and in cycles I do not use often. it spins in the spin cycle when I run that cycle

sounds like the timer is not advancing is certain cycles? timers have contact points that can burn and seize up sticking close and not allowing the next cycle to move

Front loader won't start on certain cycles

Hello sidneyskiss - From what you have described if only the normal cycle is working, then there seems to be a communication problem coming from the main control board or wiring failure. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart washer. If it proves to be ineffective, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to move forward accurately.

I have a Eurotech EWF150 frontload washer that does not spin. The drum will turn for rinse and wash cycle, but not spin. We checked the motorboard and there are 2 spots that appears burned. Hubby is trying...

I am not 100% sure your problem is the same as the one i had with my frigidare front loader but my door lock switch went bad. it would wash fine but when it came time to spin it only would tumble.

The water is running all the time in my front loader

This is caused by a faulty water level switch. This is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube, and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to begin agitate cycle. Look for any obstructions or damage to the tube. The switch can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity would indicated a bad switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Frigidare front loader won't spin during wash cycle

Does the washer go throught he whole cycle and just not spin? Or does it just shut down? If it goes the the whole cycle, You either have a bad door switch or a bad control board. Replace the door switch first. Then the control board 2nd. Door switch is a very common problem with these washer.

Will not extract on spin cycle

After oheming motor control board as stated in the service manual. Tracing the 6 pin lead wires from the control board to the motor plug. I found that one of the pin on motor plug was not making proper connection. I used a screw driver to pry the pin open so it made a better connection. Tried the washer and so far it has been working 7 washes.
