What should I check if there is no water or spinning after you start the machine?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire washer not getting any water or spinning. I see that you hit the start button and all the lights come on, and then hit the start a second time and all it does is clicks a couple of times but no water or spinning occurs. There could be a number of possibilities that can cause this to happen.

First, check to make sure that the door is completely closed. Sometimes the door seems like it is closed all the way, but it is slightly open and the locking mechanism is not catching, which could possibly be causing the clicking to happen.

Secondly, check the water hoses coming from the wall and into your washer to make sure that they are not kinked.

Lastly, it could be the motor itself. If the motor overheats, it will automatically restart after a 30 minute cool down period.

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 washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Accidentally hit delay start button and cannot get it to cancel. If this isn't free then OK....I do not have funds to pay for assistance. Your blurb on Bing says you offer free advice.

Try unplugging your washer for several minutes (at least 10 minutes) and then plug it back in. This will often reset the electrical (computer) board.

Washer stops several times in the middle of cycle

possibly it could be your un-balance switch getting very sensitive to any type of movement of the machine, normally they only actuate during the spin cycle when you have a very off balanced load of clothes

Machine wont restart after inadvertantly hitting the stop button instead of the pause button

I believe the final solution was to unplug the machine for several minutes. When it was plugged in again I hit one of the wash cycle buttons and after a minute or so the button indicating that the door was closed properly lit up and then the machine resumed it's cycle.

Machine will not operate

If you are getting a flashing "0" and a buzzing sound it means you needed to hit the Skip/Reset button at the end of the last program. Shut everything off, then hit the Skip/Reset button a few times and then put in a new program and see if it works.
