Frigidaire washer spins but won't agitate

My frigidaire washer model FWX833AS2 (top loading) will fill but will not agitate. If i try to turn the cone to the right it starts making a really loud noise. If i advance to the next cycle, it will drain and spin just fine. I'm not sure where to begin, I hope this hasn't been posted before. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

SOURCE: loud noise while agitating in wash cycle

If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.

SOURCE: Frigidaire front load washer won't drain or spin

This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Frigidaire wont fill,just keeps draining


Your drain hose must be 36 inches from the ground. Any lower and the water siphons out.

Frigidaire washer won't agitate


hi Cinebar.
this is what i found from the internet so not sure if this will be off help to you.
There could be several reasons why your Frigidaire washer will not agitate, including problems with the power supply, the wash cycle or the way in which the appliance was loaded. It is a good idea to try to resolve the problem with your washer yourself first since unnecessary repair call-outs can potentially be expensive if your appliance is outside its warranty period. Troubleshooting your Frigidaire washing machine will take about 15 minutes.
Confirm the water shutoff valves are open. If your Frigidaire washer cannot draw water from the pipes, it will not fill or agitate. The shutoff valves are usually located behind the washing machine where the water pipes meet the wall. Allow the washing machine to cool down for 30 minutes. Frigidaire appliances automatically shut off if the motor starts to overheat. The cool-down period lasts for half an hour if the appliance has not been switched off manually.
Verify that the detergent draw is tightly closed. If the dispenser is left open, the washer will not start or agitate its load. Push the draw so it sits flush with the front of the washing machine.
Ensure that the washing machine door is closed. As with the detergent door, the appliance will not start if the door is left slightly open, to prevent water from spilling onto the floor. Push the door closed until it clicks, and try your load again.
Confirm that your Frigidaire dryer is set to a spin cycle. If your dryer is set to a soak cycle or is currently in the soak portion of a longer cycle, it will not spin or agitate the wash. Make sure the appliance is set to a spin load and try again.
Contact Frigidaire if problems continue. You may be entitled to free service if your washing machine is within its warranty period. See Resources for Frigidaire's contact information.

Washer will fill, drain, and run a complete cycle but will not agitate or spin


sounds like the motor control board is bad. you could test the motor to see if it ohms out ok, the diagram has the readings. The diagram should be on the side panel (inside the cabinet) on the lt side in a brown envelope.
